"Command-line tools can be 235x faster than your Hadoop cluster"

Interesting metrics. Probably a good idea not to abandon old tools that work well, just because they're well, old.
Introduction. As I was browsing the web and catching up on some sites I visit periodically, I found a cool article from Tom Hayden about using Amazon Elastic Map Reduce (EMR) and mrjob in order to compute some statistics on win/loss ratios for chess games he downloaded from the millionbase ...

12 billion times as big. 420 trillion times as luminous.
Some 12.8 billion light years away, astronomers have spotted an object of almost impossible brightness -- the most luminous object ever seen in such ancient space.

It's more crowded out there than you'd think.
We all know and love the moon. We're so assured that we only have one that we don't even give it a specific name. It's just The Moon. But the moon is not the Earth's only natural satellite. Here's what you need to know about 3753 Cruithne and what its weird orbit reveals about the solar system.

The food is decent and reasonable priced. But this place is perpetually overcrowded. Be prepared to be elbowed around and don't expect anyone to respect your personal space (what's that?). The coffee is good and cheap.

Love the masala dosas here. This is one of the few places that hasn't shrunk the size of the dosa or its contents. And the stuff is tasty.

A lot of natural flavors. The ice creams are creamy and have actual fruit in them. They also pack it nicely in a polystyrene box with dry ice if you want a takeaway.
