Is it wrong that i thought that a ftl computer had been developed and you were tallking about running df on it?
You're not the only one, my first thought was of this article: http://blogs.physicstoday.org/newspicks/2012/03/the-holey-optochip-which-is-a-.html

Somehow, that fills me more with dread than anticipation.  It's like being told that someone's exhuming your favorite grandparent and they're going to try to make her into a cyborg stripper.

I have finally done the experiment for bit copying. The result is negative: It is possible two water tiles into magma without obsidian blocking the second water tile. However, I had too much !!!FUN!!! doing the experiment the first time and I can't repeat it. Further testing is warranted.
