I don't mind you building computronium all over the universe as long as
you do it in an ecologically balanced way. A moon here, an astaroid
there, a nebula or two, A handful of gas giants, Perhaps a supermassive
star or a black hole or two. You will still have more computronium than
a human brain can possibly comprehend but still there will be vast
tracts of universe left for others to use as their playground.

I must have missed the post where you described "outloading". It is not
commonly used in the community.
DO NOT USE OBAMACARE.
DO NOT BUY OBAMACARE.
