    But you are one who has fantasies about ramming into Andrew.

    I can see it being a decryption revolution. How would it change encryption?

    First transistor - 1949; first PC - 1979. 30 year wait.
    First quantum gate - 2016; first quantum PC - ???

    God, it's that grinding noise again. Rather than empty a bucket of pompous negativism onto the board, why not contribute to the speculation?
