Second WAI from TTT

Question

Guest

Together yet separate,

I never can retire;

For though I may stop working,

I am reborn by fire.

Conceived by one not dumb,

And born by killing another,

I am perfected by the noise,

Though I never had a mother.

You might use intelligence,

While others ask a doctor.

To solve this one, you may need to ask questions;

I will be your proctor.

A Processor.

Together yet separate, _---A Computer and Its Processor, Sum of its Parts

I never can retire; ----Need a processor to use a computer at all.

For though I may stop working, ---stuff breaks, ya know? or shut down

I am reborn by fire.--- Booting up again, electricity.

(Processors work by four commands - fetch, decode, execute, and writeback when taken metaphorically, it fits the next 4 lines.)

Conceived by one not dumb, Fetch - It takes info from the computer

And born by killing another, Decode - It "kills" the original code and makes it understandable to the computer/

I am perfected by the noise, Execute - the "noise" of transferring the data and carrying it out.

Though I never had a mother. Writeback - It reports to itself, not the "mother". (the whole concieved, mother and born thing seems to be a play on words)

You might use intelligence,----INTEL Processor

While others ask a doctor. ----AMD Processor

Gosh am I close at all? I feel totally farfetched. :P

You got the last two lines.

Memory Card --> RAM!!

No... but still close.

No. But I like your train of thought.

TTT = TryinToThink??

Yes.... I could have called myself T3, or T3, but that just seemed either too creepy (T3=Rise of the Machines) or too bookish.

I trawled through the 13 pages thinking the answer was memory sticks, then someone tried that and it was wrong.

Now I'm going with hard drive.

I can only think of something relating to
semiconducters.

Why, sure, it relates to that. It relates to almost every suggestion made. Almost.

No. But like I mentioned above... it relates to that.

Another clue:

I was born of necessity,

Placed against the glass;

Look into my future,

You will only see my past.

The looking into my future being the past made me think of looking at stars, and how the Y2K problem would set the year back into the past (0) instead of forward (1000).

The glass sounds like a computer monitor.

You're as close as the rest.

ok, i'll admit i read every spoiler before coming up with these guesses, but this one has been driving me nuts...

An OS like Windows (which runs over DOS, for example -- born by killing another? AND its "up against the glass" because you see it on your monitor?)

OR

An Internet Browser? ("fire"fox?, IE, etc?)

No, but they use the target in one fashion or another.

I'm really curious what the answer is with so many so close!

memristor

I don't know what that is.

I really can't wait to see the right answer for this one.

the BIOS?

No, but again, it uses the target.

hmmmm... running out of guesses. I want you to give me a hint!! ^_^

I'm running out of hints... lemme come up with something.

Another hint:

I can be seen nearly everywhere,

From socks, to dips, to sips, son.

My history is wide and varied,

But one path is from the light offspring who created wisdom.

lets let my un-technologically minded brain try to squeeze out some sort of answer

fiber optics, or just fibers

No.

[spoiler='my guess

']PLASMA

NO

You're right... at the part about being wrong.

Now why didn't I think of this before?

color? or light itself?

Sorry.

Not broadband... not narrow-band, either

PM me with your sworn affidavit that you will not release the information to anyone, and you will receive the answer.

I'm not sure if someone already said this (I got tired of reading like halfway through the posts)

Is it a microprocessor?
