@Paul Murphy

servers with switches etc built in - as a matter of interest, how many ports would you want to have?

Intel eyes sun-powered data centers

Iceland?

loads of geothermal, cooling not too much of an issue and photovoltaics could have all that ice to reflect light onto them ...

as for Sun-powered data centres, don't tell Mr Bryant

Sun revs VirtualBox desktop virtualization

Andy Billington

@kevin

now that's an interesting idea .... any other devs out there that would be interested in this?

am puzzled though as to why now "HP is the master of the universe" comment from Matt "HP = Gods" Bryant. Maybe they don't have a workable desktop virrtualisation product. Or a workable virtualisation product. Or a credible non x86 box.

Reg eds - can we have a Apple/Sun;/HP/mis fanboy warning icon?

BSI vs HMG

Can we have a rule brought in that says before BSI tells us how to store data - for whatever purpose - the Government has to go through a year without leaving stuff on trains, losing it with couriers, or just generally making stuff up?

Virtual servers and economic gloom boost Wyse Technology's message

Andy Billington

hot desking?

as zvonr has raised Sun Ray, how does the Wyse setup compare with hot desking?

Oh, and as we've both mentioned Sun I guess Mr Bryant will be along shortly; how does Wyse's offering compare with HP - I seem to remember a sales pitch from an HP reseller a while back about one blade per desktop?

Yes Minister .....

"if you put data into a database, you're going to want to take it out". (Hopefully not by putting it on a cd and leaving /selling it in the local).

Yes Minister, Series 1, Big Brother. (except for the bracketed bit obviously).

Another thing I remember from my fave analysis of UK government, which sadly is becoming more and more true each week goes by, its something that I really wish our current politicians had the self-respect to honour:

"it happened in your department, you are deemed therefore to have been responsible. The only honourable course therefore is for you to resign".
