aarondubrow writes: "Quantum computing may represent the next major evolution in technology. In theory, it would allow for faster and more complex computations using a fraction of the energy. One of the most promising implementations involves a defect in diamond that leads to a missing carbon in the material's matrix, with a nitrogen atom located nearby. Since diamonds are expensive and difficult to work with, researchers are using simulations on the Ranger supercomputer to explore potential alternatives, including silicon carbide (SiC)."

It was kinda like stuffing the wrong card in a computer, when you're stickin' those artificial stimulants in your arm. -- Dion, noted computer scientist
