Cool project. I hope this can garner some interest, it has the potential to be the underpinnings of something great.

+Maksim Lin​ might be of interest to you.

In 2001, the world's fastest supercomputer was IBM's ASCI White, which cost $110 million, weighed 106 tons and used 3 MW of power to reach a theoretical peak speed of 12.3 teraflops. 

Fifteen years later, NVIDIA will now sell you a 3U rack-mounter server which uses about 1,000 times less power (3 kW), costs 852 times less ($129,000) and is 3.5 times faster (42.5 teraflops). Oh and it probably weighs 2,000 times less as well. 

Or to put it another way, just 5 years ago, to get a similar amount of performance you had to buy something like a SGI Altix ICE which was the world's 432nd fastest supercomputer and used 183 kW of power. And only places like the National Institute for Materials Science of
Japan could afford such beasts. 

So this NVIDIA DGX-1 is basically a supercomputer of five years ago, in a box, costing hundreds of times less, using about a hundred times less power, and making high performance computing available to basically any medium-sized organisation.

And in 5 years, I would not at all be surprised to find this amount of computing power in a high end GPU used in a gaming PC. It's amazing!

#RIP Johan Cruyff. RIP Andy Grove. It's not fun when your childhood and teenage heroes die.

The last time the GOP was taken over by an "outside force" was 1964, which lead to the nomination of the ultra conservative Barry Goldwater.

This is a 4 minute (yes 4 minutes!) ad that LBJ ran against him.

It's spooky how some things look so dated (the cigarette, etc), and yet, how so much remains the same. I expect the DEMs to run retouched versions of this ad against Trump, and I expect they'll work well.

So how is the temperature in hell today? Frozen, right?!
It’s been an incredible year for the data business at Microsoft and an incredible year for data across the industry. This Thursday at our Data Driven event in New York, we will kick off a wave of launch activities for SQL Server 2016 with general availability later this year. This is the most significant release of SQL Server that we have ever done, and brings with it some fantastic new … Read more »

It's satire +Mark Gillespie. Or perhaps you don't know what GNU/Hurd is?

So you can now run Linux binaries, unmodified and without needing to recompile, on Windows. 

I feel I should say something about hell freezing over, but this is beyond that. This is so incredibly cool. 

I might actually think about switching to Windows now. This is a colossal improvement over Cygwin and everything else that's been available for Windows. It's even an improvement over OS X, I don't have to do gymnastics to replace all the ancient BSD utilities that Apple ships with OS X with their GNU counterparts.

See also Scott Hanselman's blog here I'm in San Francisco this week, attending Microsoft's Build developer conference, as a sponsored guest of Microsoft. That's perhaps a bit odd for me, as I hadn't used Windows in nearly 1...

So after nearly 3 years of being a loyal Netflix subscriber, it looks like my relationship with Netflix will be coming to an end.

It seems Netflix has just blocked my smart DNS and my VPN providers. I can't bring myself to go to the effort and cost of renting a VPS and setting up BIND or OpenVPN on it just to get around their silly geoblock. If Netflix doesn't remove its block in the next couple of days, I will be cancelling my subscription.

Guess the movie studios would rather I go back to Usenet than pay them money. Oh well. I tried.

Uno I can't begin to put words to that look Christi has but I'd say that's close. He looks like he sold his soul to the devil & he's got nothing left inside. Just my opinion😐

Introduction
Sharing my thoughts on politics, science and technology, law and issues surrounding IP and privacy, the criminal justice system and the world economy.
Really solid food, far exceeded my expectations. The quesadilla was beautiful, and the margarita was delicious. Prices are reasonable. You have to go and order inside, so no wonder Lisa couldn't get service, but there are signs saying that so she was probably blind.

Friendly and caring staff who are willing to go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction. Prices are competitive (though not always the cheapest). This is probably one of the best pet shops on the West side, and their website is up to date and usable on a phone, which is more than can be said of most similar shops.

Overpriced, with mediocre food, and subpar service. I don't get the appeal, but most people disagree with me on this.

Fun, modern and yet authentic takes on Shakespeare's works. Couldn't ask for more.

You're in the middle of the city, there is so much actual food around. Why are you even thinking of going to KFC?
