#BAFact: On this date in 2004, the Earth was hit by the biggest blast of cosmic radiation in recorded history.

Eight years ago today - Dec. 27, 2004 - the Earth was slammed by the biggest explosion of energy coming from deep space in recorded history. It is almost impossible to exaggerate the size and scale of this event: It literally had a physical effect here on Earth, even though the origin was a mind-crushing 50,000 light years away!

As mentioned, no blocked thread.

I also have a theory that I haven't tested yet, which is that async may work better with HTTP pipelining. Last time I tried pipelining with the traditional blocking servlet API (in Tomcat), the pipelining produced no real benefit: the app code still wouldn't see the other requests until the first was completed.
Hello,

I try to understand the global concept of Async on Play!
When someone go on "http://example.com/my/url", server open a socket for him.
When I do a large process with Async/Promise, the client waiting the answer.
So the socket is still used, the socket ressource is taken and this socket cannot be used for an other user.

Could you explain me how the Async works ?

Crazy, but awesome crazy.
Why Apple needs a really expensive iPhone.

Some pundits are predicting, and others are advocating, that Apple launch an iPhone that's much cheaper than the current iPhone in order to keep up with Android phone sales.

This is crazy talk.

Apple doesn't need a cheaper iPhone. They need a more expensive one -- much more expensive. Here's why.

Did you know that being the son of the monarch makes you a medical expert? It's true! (Apparently)
