So, at the end of H3, Cortana tells Chief that it's gonna be a long time before they're detected.

Chief tells her to wake him up if anyone finds them.

But, I remember reading in Fall Of Reach (or maybe First Strike, can't quite remember) that Cortana has a limited lifespan.

If she "died" before anyone came, Chief would be frozen for pretty much all time, wouldn't he?

Can anyone confirm her lifespan? I'm not sure, but it seems like a bit of a problem for Chief.

I believe the AI's in the Halo universe have a lifespan of 7 years, aprox anyway, i'll check the details in the book when i get home, but thats the number that i remember for some reason...

there was a reason for this, it explained it somewhere about the quantum programing becoming unstable after a set amount of time...

After seven years the AIs become rampant, means computer crazy ;). But yeah I was under the impression that she would think herself to death in seven years and have been wondering about this as well. Maybe she can put herself in a kind of computer suspended animation. But then why would she tell John that she would miss him if she would be frozen anyway. Its probably just that no one on the production team thought of that.

Huh, no concept of sarcasm

sudden rabid attack on a thread that you obviously have no interest in

Youre a wii owner. Way to promote your console of choice. Rabid fanboyism has always been persuasive. Only problem is that you just build a great argument fro whatever your against.

Yeah, I guess it's a bit of a hole that the writers missed.

Hey! Meta Knight would never do something so dishonorable as stabbing a helpless opponent!

IMPOSTER!

there are three types of UNSC AIs. Micro AIs are mini AIs, with 1/10 of the capacity of "smart" AIs. Dumb AIs have a limited core, meaning they can only learn so much, but they can last forever without damage. "Smart" AIs, like Cortana, can learn any thing, but the average life span (depending on how much theyve learned) can last 7 years ACTIVE. this means that if she goes on stand by mode, aka "sleap mode", she can last forever, as long as she isn't hurt externaly.

Oh, and yeah, and meta knight is a stupid character from a stupid gaming system. the wii is cartoon-ie, and cant handle a game the size of the first gamplay level of halo3.

Bleh, no console is good enough for me but the computer.

So Master chief is going to become a icicle?  That would be a major improvement.  In the mean time, have Samus Aran die to the Balrog.  And kill off the protagonist of killzone.

Speaking of her thinking to death i read somewhere that its possible for that to happen to a human that they think so much that the brain loses concentration on keeping vital organs working is that true?

Yes that is correct, cortana is using very little if not any of her processor matrix. She isn't thinking herself to death.

She's a lot like my back up computer when I use it for more than six hours non stop.  She goes bonkers.       Any way, all consoles shall bow down to the computer and virtual reality gaming.

Diidnt Cortana say to the Chief  'I'll  miss you'? I think she knows she is dying. Also her life span was reduced from containing milennia of Forunner knowledge.
