Three T-A8D4s connected via Network Interface Cards (NICs) and a wire sending each eachother random packets. The A8D4s are connected via their I/O ports to the NICs and each NIC has a unique address.

    [sigh] What a sad world is TPT. Computers get as much whining as "art"

    Negative numbers were discovered way before someone made the conclusion antimatter should exist, as matter is positive, antimatter is negative.

    And besides, if you're looking for "something new" in science, you really shouldn't be dissapointed when the next breakthrough in technology doesn't come from Powder Toy.

    @BLUE-User, !SCIENCE! is for science's sake and not just for utility, that's what improves science and has been a core spirit of science. Practically, even if a research has no immediate usage, something is learnt and it may turns out that the combination of "useless" things becomes the cornerstone of great revolutions.

    Oh no, this isnt the first inter computer communication, i do remember seeing a save with computers using gravity (alongside a regular spark version) to send serial data and search for "two r16k1s60s in love", its 2 of the lbphacker's computers communicating.

    It does not do anything per say, no. But this is, to my knowledge, the first proof of concept of inter-computer communication/networking on The Powder Toy. And that is what makes this save brilliant. It's more than running electricity through wires.
