Should A stop the music?

I do not agree. Clearly, you wanted to know what is the moral action for A. The correct action depends on what A's choices and responsibilities are.

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

Suppose that room is the universe. And there are no other prequels or consequences of this event.
I am asking if stopping the music is moral.

Rather, I am showing that it is moral according to your definition and immoral according to my definition.

Mine is easier to implement on robots, yours is for humans.

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

Who cares what robots do or think?

You have not told me what action A took. How can you say it is moral or not?

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

The music or the nature of the situation is not our. topic of discussion

I'll provide a more mathematical way tomorrow so that you understand what I am saying.

I am just lying the foundations of morality theory. reality is too complicated to deal with right now. First, we will need to think of situations where the problem universe is composed of finite sets only.

Goodnight

If you put it into math I will definitely not understand it.

You had told that he does.

Today I installed and played Amnesia - The Dark Descent on Ubuntu with the discreet GPU. It is running fine.

Very good. How is M running?

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

What is so good about MIT?

M is running fine. But I have not done any new problem recently. It is bad to see that CUDA does not work on Radeon.

Your sanity is dangerously low. Please avoid watching unsettling events, staying in the dark or staring at monsters.

CUDA is for Nvidia cards.

That quote is depressing in itself.

Re: Has anyone reinstalled Windows?

What Radeon GPU accelerated computing package for Mathematica is available?

The quote is from Amnesia.

The goal of the game is not to win but to give the player a haunted and scaring experience. They told me to play the game late at night, in a dark room. And so I did.

Hahhahahahh, what kaboobly doo. If you want combat you come to America, here we fight to the death. Video games are a poor substitute for being knocked down and having 5 people kick you until you are dead.
