How about something totally different, like putting graphics hardware to good use?

If you really want to have graphics, then HLSL (High Level Shader Language) is the way to go, but if you want to use the GPU for real number crunching, you might need something that's a little more general and less geared towards graphics.

What kind of number crunching? How about AI? Neural networks needs a few (matrix) calculations and GPUs are very good at that.
The language is JavaScript. that of Mordor, which I will not utter here

This is Javascript. If you put big wheels and a racing stripe on a golf cart, it's still a f***ing golf cart.

"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.

Straw Poll

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
