Listener comments!

  Thu. 2/9/12 7:03pm Adam in Portland:

I love this show!
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:06pm Cliff:

Please don't tell me this entire episode is going to use computer-generated voices.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:07pm max:

This is weird even by this shows standards
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:07pm Sean:

I kind of hope this entire episode is going to use computer-generated voices. Hearing the typing is brilliant.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:08pm Dan B from Upstate:

Mike and Rich?
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:08pm Dan B from Upstate:

This needs Zebra Trucks!
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:09pm Caryn:

Their envy of Stephen Hawking has reached boiling point. The result: tonight's show.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:11pm Cliff:

The only way this could be worse is if they start mixing in the Dan Tullis and Joel Clark insurance commercial.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:11pm Scuttle:

Waffle Talk
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:12pm Caryn:

One of the female voices sounds like Isabella Rosselini.

And we've moved from 2 days of taco talk to waffle talk.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:12pm Sean:

Cliff, perhaps you had a bad experience with a waffle? It might be time to give them another chance.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:12pm Frankie:

Youse guys is nuts.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:12pm Cliff:

DON'T TALK TO ME ABOUT WAFFLES!!!
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:14pm Sean:

It's okay Cliff, these are BELGIAN waffles.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:15pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Hey, I know computers!
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:18pm Scuttle:

So funny
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:18pm meghan:

Caryn are you talking about my taco coffee?
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:19pm Sean:

this is amazing.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:20pm max:

Night people is maybe the only radio show that can do an episode like this without alienating its audience at all
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:23pm Caryn:

@meghan: well, that too, but tacos have been a major talking point on most of the comment boards for 2 days now. Nice to get some variety with the waffles.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:24pm meghan:

Interesting.... Had no clue when my coffee tasted like that
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:25pm mac:

Yea this is pretty retarded.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:26pm The Internet:

Put shoe on head.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:26pm Dan B From Upstate:

Thank you for using Stank T & T.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:28pm max:

Even at its most out there I can't ever remember this show going this far out, even relaxation radio had boundaries
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:29pm Josh:

This definitely out there.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:29pm some other guy:

I think I have perfected the text-to-speech fart: "ootph"
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:30pm meghan:

Max... No it didn't! I caught the strangest things during relaxation radio
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:30pm Dan B From Upstate:

Double Deuling Ws.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:30pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

What is the number again?
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:31pm Josh:

Is that the genre here? Relaxation radio? My first time hearing that.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:31pm Sean:

I don't know, remember when they played miniature golf in the studio? About 15 minutes of that relaxation radio bit was Dave looking for the ball.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:31pm Dan B From Upstate:

201-536-9368
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:33pm meghan:

Yes! They got me to play it with them. Then Nachum walked in and it was like we got caught doing something stupid
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:33pm Caryn:

Actually, Disney World basically becomes a gay leather bar after the gates close. Maybe Disneyland is the same way.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:34pm JJJ:

A bit is a 1 or 0, a byte is 8 bits
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:35pm Bit Head:

A bit is a digit that can have one of only two values: zero or one. A 64-bit operating system can address locations in memory with addresses represented with 64-bits.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:35pm some other guy:

IT'S A CONTRACTION FOR A SINGLE BINARY DIGIT!!! "B'IT"!!! ARGH.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:35pm JJJ:

64 bit addresses
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:35pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Club 33 - you guys haven't been there?
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:36pm Bit Head:

8-bit systems are limited to the number of locations in memory that can be addressed with 8-bits.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:36pm Sean:

Hi Meghan! haha, miniature golf could never be stupid. I think i'd like to live my life as if it was Relaxation Radio
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:37pm jack:

The size of a 'byte' can be implementation dependent, but usually it is 8-bits
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:37pm jack:

It's all factors of two
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:38pm john:

talk about biting and flopping .
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:39pm Caryn:

These two have been waffling, biting and flopping tonight. In an enjoyable way.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:39pm JJJ:

Hardware has kinda reached a limit with how fast it can go, hence multiple processors being used nowadays. It's kinda up to the software guys now to make multiple processors work together better, that's the next step to going faster
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:40pm some other guy:

next let's interview a computer scientist about microbiology. Is the stream all messed up for anyone besides me right now?
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:40pm meghan:

Hey Sean! Wait.... I think it was shuffleboard.... Ping pong paddle, olive's dog ball and the console..... Can't remember fully if the called that one mini golf or shuffleboard
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:41pm john:

it's a stream of piss to me
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:41pm Bit Head:

Quartz is NOT a conductor! It's a dielectric material.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:41pm mrmucho:

can't wait until they talk about quantum computing
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:44pm meghan:

There you go..... Back to tacos
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:44pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

They are using real words, but that is about it.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:44pm Bit Head:

An algorithm is any series of specific steps carried out to accomplish a desired goal.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:45pm JJJ:

An algotritm is just a program to do something. Equals sign is just equality
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:45pm jack:

That's a really bad explanation of an algorithm. An algorithm is really just a set of instructions (like a recipe)
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:45pm Bit Head:

A simple algorithm? Long division done by hand.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:46pm mrmucho:

ask him about loop invariants
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:47pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

What is the opposite of an expert?
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:48pm Bit Head:

Loop invariants? You mean guards?
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:53pm Bit Head:

But DNS data is copied and distributed everywhere!
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:53pm Rich:

waffles all around!!
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:57pm ~L:

If it all gets stored in the Cloud, what happens if the cloud crashes?
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:58pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

There is a cloud cloud.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:59pm Caryn:

Every crashing cloud has a silver lining.
  Thu. 2/9/12 7:59pm Sean:

if the cloud crashes, it rains images of cats
  Thu. 2/9/12 8:00pm some other guy:

Is the cloud cloud the atmosphere?
