Whee..
 
More #RealGravity images tonight as #Gravity is up for awards at the #Oscars2014: Astronaut Bruce McCandless II, is seen further away from the confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut has ever been on Feb. 12, 1984. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Space Shuttle Challenger's payload bay, McCandless went "free-flying" to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. This stunning orbital panorama view shows McCandless out there amongst the black and blue of Earth and space.

In 12 exercises deploying only body weight, a chair and a wall, it fulfills the latest mandates for high-intensity effort, which essentially combines a long run and a visit to the weight room into about seven minutes of steady discomfort — all of it based on science.

Hello everybody out there using Linux -

I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, even if it's big and professional) for 486+ AT clones and just about anything else out there under the sun. This has been brewing since april 1991, and is still not ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in Linux 3.11-rc7.

I originally ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), but others have taken over user space and things still seem to work. This implies that I'll get the final 3.11 release within a week, and I'd like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them :-)

To be slightly more concrete: Yahoo, Amazon, and several other companies built Map-Reduce before Google did (or around the same time). But all of them suffered through custom, per-use case implementation that caused lots of pain if the workflows changed, or they wanted to add a new process. I'm trying to find the citation for this (there was some reaction to MapReduce from Yahoo like "this is nothing new") but I cannot find it. But the point is that many companies suffer greatly, and fail to recognize it
