That's a Whole Lot of Power, Mac - ""There's a book called How to Build a Better Beowulf that's 230 pages long and tells you how to set up clusters with Linux," Dauger said. "We have a one-page manual (PDF) that shows you how to do it on PowerMacs. We've had high school students do it.""
Just going to download that link. I wonder what I could do with a super computer cluster. ";->"
The cellphone is not just a phone anymore: "The first thing that strikes a visitor to Japan now is that the number of people looking at their phones exceeds the number who are talking on them. Phones are to be seen flipped open and in use everywhere- on subways, while walking, in lines, while walking, in bars and restaurants..."
Oh, this is fascinating. Japan first, then Europe next and the US can wait, and wait. Some of these things are going to be so useful for us all, business and pleasure, though I think more pleasure. Who wants to work commuting home?
The Register: That 'Microsoft' RTFM page: "Our inboxes are filling with links to a rogue "How to RTFM" page posted supposedly on Microsoft's Web site.
But it's a hoax and as such not very funny. It's not a very clever hoax at that - although we can say that because we already know the trick."
Ah! Well, I got caught. Still funny though IMHO
CNN.com - Andersen CEO: Enron cost firm business: "Berardino insisted that it was a failure in Enron's business model, not its accounting practices, that torpedoed the company's stock and sent the energy trading company to seek bankruptcy court protections."
"Andersen hired a law firm to conduct interviews with the many Andersen employees involved with Enron, and Berardino said any wrongdoing would be punished."
"With Enron in bankruptcy, shareholder lawsuits would likely target the company's auditor, Andersen, analysts said."
Andersen CEO Joseph Berardino tried to portray the accounting firm as a victim in the Enron scandal at a Chicago press conference Monday.
They may have "85,000 honest, hard-working people at Andersen" but they're still in deep doo-doo.
