Description (last modified by Glyph)

An array of about 20 billion inverted tachyon emitters, evenly spaced, in solar-synchronous orbit ought to do the trick. We may need some peer-to-peer networking or routing tools to deal with this. Also, IPv6 in order to be able to address them each individually as well as communicate with the control grid on earth.

As I pointed out on IRC, an obvious problem is that the 2.6MiB (or 2.7MB, if you prefer megabytes) tarball is just too big of a burden for people's hard drives. Perhaps there's some sort of subsidy we can offer to people whose hard drives predate the turn of the millennium?

Summary: Twisted has not yet acchieved world dominationDestroy the sun.

Let's not lose sight of our original purpose. Also: tickets should be clear, measurable goals. How can we tell if Twisted has actually dominated the world? There are varying degrees. But I think we'll all be able to agree whether the sun has been destroyed or not.

I should probably take point on this.

This sounds like a promising approach to implementing .

Secure communication is a prerequisite for any device which can annihilate a celestial body, this so the work going on in #4888 et. al. will be helpful for this.

Since it seems likely that said emitters are going to need to at the very least interoperate with JSON-over-HTTP APIs via IPv6, #6712 (and by extension #4362) are dependencies as well.

Through a rather bizarre series of events, Disney/Sting/Eartha Kitt have generously provided a theme song. Hopefully this will motivate progress on clearing out the backlog.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
