Finally finished the calculations! I've still gotta organize them into a comprehensible post, though. Expect it within 24 hrs.

I have a HUGE post coming up that will summarize stats for a number of reasonably sized (<40 solar masses) ISO's, ranging from moon brain to godstar. But I keep finding myself needing to revise the...

Post: RE: Power consumption of Archai

Well, let's imagine a thousand solar masses(ish) of magmatter arranged in a sphere with a radius of 1E7 m. Now, to hold that sphere up under its own gravitation, we pump it up like a balloon using 2.5...

Post: RE: Power consumption of Archai

Been noodling around with the new equations. Odds are that an S5 will be limited to the low 1E60's in terms of storage. Bandwidth will decrease as well, but not by 8-10 orders of magnitude like storag...

A lot depends on how effectively the "ideal gas conjecture" in Warren Smith's paper holds up, as well as whether or not exploiting gravitational effects can be used to increase information density. I...

Distillation happens when a mixture of two liquid chemicals is hot enough that ambient air pressure can only keep one of the chemical species in a liquid phase. Which means that there are two possible...

Thanks! According to the paper, E0 = E - E(T) Where E is the total energy of the system, and E(T) is the energy of a system at equilibrium with temperature T. Since E0 appears to be the energy ava...
