Speaking of floats, does anyone know whether there are implementations of the UNUM floating point representation out there in HPC world?

I think he got an MSX, in the end
Damn you Greg. Long time, no see!

Everything is relative, yes we get it.
but I feel
Science has scant to do with stuff from Lucas Space Fantasy movies.
A storm passing over the Southern Alps releases more energy in a couple of hours
Numbers, dude. I want numbers.
Yes, have seen it before. Also, I think Mercury has a feature like that.
Shouldn't you be in prison for dissing our our honorable effort in Afghanistan?
...until you step on a lego brick with your bare foot.
I know I was first fascinated by pictures of computers in encyclopedias (which were probably 10 years out of date) as a youth.
Hell yeah. Time Life Science books, so mysterious. Those were the times.
If the other 50% are management, we have a problem.
Back in the early noughties they had bad data on customers' credit record, basically shitting over them with no recourse.
Don't know whether fixed.
Clearly we are in the epoch of "Doxx Quantitative Easing". The market value of the info will go to nothing as duplicate records fill mobster Excel sheets...
Ah... Apple Lore!
Suck it up.
Yes, I do. Sucking hobo logo.jpg

Don't you mean tensor?
Also, it's easier than the Ringworld. Let's do this!
Though the Hajj is going to be difficult and costly. (At least it won't be under control of our favorite rich.man wahabbi-pushers to which which we also ship several billion USD high-tech weapons at taxpayer expense because "friendship" and "reassurance against random Iran attacks." I'm not saying we should bomb, I'm just saying.)
No, wait... Mars ... Dunes... Fremen!
I have a butlerian feeling about this.
Just one more little reason....
Why do these pieces of shit called "word processors" exist at all?!
"Software as an Enema" has arrived
Well, I always wanted to talk to Steve Ballmer...
Let's do this!
It's always the hippies' fault.
We are not talking war crimes here.
OTOH, Dick Cheney is still free as in freedom? Pity.
The german pronounciation would be "Lease", so it doesn't quite fit.
Anyway, this must be the latest shark-jumping act in "THE CONSPIRACY OF THE PEONS".
All female participants will be offered mentoring through the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet
There are also partly female participants?
So you can anti-firebombing professional professionals armed with Dragunova?
Of course, a "key" is just a particular password itself...

There was a little bug a big back:
"akonadi" is the search server as I know. No need to panic.
You are probably safe. Probably. Unless ....
"there would be a workforce cyber-skills shortage of 1.5 million by 2020"
There will also be a shortage of hyperdrive shunt operators and xenobiologists, but so what?
Actually it's a real-world satire.
Microsoft never gives you anything to rave about. A best, it's "meh+".
Even the Gipper's head of OMB has something to say:
Carly Fiorina proved at least one thing last week. Namely, you don’t have to be a career GOP politician to come across as a war-mongering neocon and abortion-bashing statist demagogue. She took the stage fully formed as a frightul modern-day Torquemada, threatening to bring fire and brimstone down on anyone running afoul of her righteous indignation and crystal clear grasp of the Truth.
The truth is that Fiorina was a once and failed CEO only because she rode the Lucent Bubble to undeserved fame during the blow-off phase of the massive 1990s tech bubble. Its peak market cap of $250 billion at the time of her departure for Hewlett-Packard in 1999 was not due to her business prowess as head of its major division or that ATT’s gussied up maker of prosaic equipment like switchgear had invented anything new under the sun.
Lucent’s giant but fleeting market cap was entirely a product of the Greenspan Bubble and the fact that its leadership including Fiorina had no compunction about goosing its sales by lending billions to its customers, many of who were tech era start-ups rapidly burning off their VC supplied cash.
In any event, Lucent’s stock crashed and eventually plummeted to less than $10 billion after it took multi-billion write-offs for its bad debts, laid off more than 50,000 employees and confessed to the SEC that it had doctored its accounting. More importantly, Fiorina had gotten out of dodge just in the nick of time.
... But it was at HPQ that her immersion in the destructive financial engineering that has become endemic in the C-suite of corporate America went full frontal. Even Donald Trump called Fiorina on her phony claims about the company’s spectacular growth during her tenure—–claims which the company’s SEC filed financial results don’t remotely support.
It probably doesn't work better than go faster strips but one never knows (and doesn't NASA hook up with bizarre stuff like "reactionless drives" that have had no result in 20 years?)

I don't know to what level of self-delusion people will go, but I want to find out.
would be an actual solution to the pollution issue
Because destroying the old cars and manufacturing new ones sure won't generate pollution, or waste for that matter.
This is the same reasoning behind the "cash for clunkers" idocy: wholesale destruction of working machinery because GAIACULT and, after all, money can be printed. Please leave thinking on the level of differently abled 6-year olds to politicians.
A new meaning!
I don't see what this has to do with Star Wars?
Unfortunately against the onslaught of fake productivity via Quantitative Easing, it won't even make a blip on Krugman's monitor.
I am comparing this with a picture of the whoée structure (the one shown for the present El Reg article being just a part of the whole Nebula) in a book from 195. Blue-white & black, printed on cheap post-WWII paper, the ink is oily in appearance. There is no detail in the image, the stars are fat dots ...we have come some way, indeed.
In order to hit a critical deadline, the main details will need to be decided by the end of that particular huddle
An excellent way of proceeding is to close the door and not let them be reopened until consensus is reached.
I dunno. How is it possible to talk like that without having been on meth for a few years?
Who would spend £1000 on a car worth £1500?
Anyone who doesn't want to spend £10'000 on a new car?
The repair cost has naught to do with the resale value (which, in the example above, would be more like £500 with a CD deck thrown in, amIrite?)
I can't disagree but it sounds like the engineer's version of "crazy preparedness".
TODAY ONE CAN NEVER BE SURE.
This really could be a 100% honest statement by any of the US-american presidential hopefuls.
Yes, we are living in those times.
