Very disturbing things that I have suspected for a while.
Concurrency isn’t coming. It’s already here. And what was once an incredibly naive high-hopes buzzword and procurement concept has now become a slur in many defense crowds. Now, after nearly downing the F-35, and causing chaos in many other defense programs, it’s trying to sink America’s newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford.

This is absolutely true.
If you don't know how technology works, maybe its time for another job.

One of these days I'll get around to doing something like this.
 
How to build a Linux-powered router from scratch (or rather, from a small PC): http://ow.ly/4mMjPC
Remember how our homebrew router embarrassed off-the-shelf options? Go make your own.

Anyone who loves computing history or Raspberry Pi computers should register their support of this Lego Idea.
Analytical Engine Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) is widely credited as the first computer scientist and Charles Babbage (1791-1871) is best remembered for originating the concept of...

A good Lego Idea that needs support.
This project is a timeline of the history of Computers from Babbage's 'Difference Engine' to the latest 'ipad'. The timeline is split into three sections: 1. The Pioneers - Ch...

The Raspberry Pi line of devices are inexpensive, low-power, credit card-sized computers. But while there are USB ports for connecting a keyboard, mouse, gamepad, or other accessories, there are also a series of GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pins that allow you to connect hardware in other ways. For instance, you can connect a HAT (Hardware …

I would enjoy building computers more if they had tubes and things such that they looked all engineery and stuff.

I get nervous just making a remote networking change to a secondary interface.

HDMI and DP convert to DVI with an inexpensive adapter. Loaded with what? 16GB of RAM and a SSD aren't all that pricey any more. No way I'd put Windoze on it.

I am VERY happy about this new standard. Once, being a developer meant you needed the best computer possible. Now developers just need a slightly better than average computer. This means smaller, quieter and cheaper.
Intel launched a new platform in 2015 for the smallest motherboards that could support upgradeable CPUs. Now we’re starting to see some of the first actual boards based on that platform: ECS and ASRock both unveiled new mini STX motherboards at CES last week. Basically, this means you can build your own computer that’s not …
