Re: Alternatives to Bowl-out

im sticking with the no of wickets. a team which reaches the same score with more no of wickets left is obviously a better team contary to what another poster has said. if the team crosses the score with more no of wickets lost well then they win. but on a tie they lose. i think its fool proof and i...

Re: Alternatives to Bowl-out

go by the number of wickets lost. its a no brainer.
if there is a tie even then then the team which gives away the most number of extras if the loser.
performance should be rewarded, not luck.

Re: The Indian Cricket League (ICL)

here is the prediction both ICL and the PCL are going to fail miserably and will be financial disasters. here are the reasons 1) this 20/20 world cup is a huge success, people will look forward to these matches more than the minor leagues. 2) i dont see out of shape and old crickets in their 40's li...

Re: ICC Twenty20 World Cup, South Africa (11 - 24th September, 2007)

there should be some unwritten rules about when to celebrate and when not to. you dont see a batsman celebrating a boundary or a miss field. the match was tied and we made the super 8's. but then again the likes of sehwag and harbhajan have not had much to celebrate recently so i dont blame them for...

Re: ICC Twenty20 World Cup, South Africa (11 - 24th September, 2007)

the only thing worse than the bowl out was the celebration of the indian team.
then again we are not big on sportsmanship or respecting the other team.

Re: What is God? - Religion/Philosophy

the war between rama and ravana barely happened a few thousand years ago. if they can find human bones dating back to million's of years ago, they probably should go hunting for some ape like carcasses near or around the adam bridge. or mayb a 10 heads joined together by an unknown bone or a 100 foo...

Re: What is God? - Religion/Philosophy

i agree
not to mention voting for the symbol of mughal persecution the "taj mahal" as one of the 7 wonders and not for the largest hindu temple in the world the "angkor vat". the indians are strange people.

Re: What is God? - Religion/Philosophy

So now we get into the definition of "hardware."  Is the Universe itself a form of hardware?  It does exist in the dimensions of space-time. What nballa is saying is that memories outlive the physical death of the cells in the body - including brain cells.    But he is ignoring the fact that while ...

Re: What is God? - Religion/Philosophy

Can software exist in electromagnetic wave (or some unfied wave field) media?  What if all software files existing now on all the computer hardware in the world are sent out as wireless messages out into the universe?  The waves keep on going into the universe, does not get destroyed, and it exists...

Re: What is God? - Religion/Philosophy

I agree, prasen9.  I think your difference of opinion with nballa is in the analogy, not the concept.  And I agree with you that when you destroy the piece of hardware that contains some software, of course you delete the software.  I should know.  About 20 years ago, I did a "Delete *.*" on my IBM...

Re: What is God? - Religion/Philosophy

the problem is whenever people think of software they think of the medium which holds it, like a CD, harddrive etc etc. however please know that software does not really exist as a multidimensional object, thats why its called "soft"-ware. software is nothing but a language for ideas(algorithm). the...
