The only place for a CC number is on the card. No where else. Unless you like memorizing CC numbers

Re: Launched at 45,000 ft

White Knight 2 is a very much skin and structure layout. Too much turbulence is bad news.

ARM server chip upstart Calxeda bites the dust in its quest for 64-bit glory

Re: O gosh

You have no idea how much history repeats itself.

AMD developed the problem plagued K5 processor. Another company called NexGen was struggling/died. AMD bought it and rebranded their processor as K6 aka Athlon and the rest was history.

Original HP notebooks were POS. After the purchase of Compaq, the Presario range injected the much needed know how to make reliable notebooks. The same can be said of their DL series of servers, orginally from Compaq. HP original Netservers was a joke.

I am sure there are more examples.

Got loads of old databases clogging up your company's storage?

Alfred Loo

Launch separation and banking

1. Launch separation.

Note the length of the orbital rocket and its minimal vanes. Getting a clean separation is going to be tough, If it pitches down, its bye bye time.

2. Roll to side or banking?

With this monster's wing span? How long does it take to get the wing tip to clear the center line?

Why blade servers still don't cut it, and how they might

Niche market

Useful when you are adding more applications than your real estate (server room) can grow. Otherwise it would be a hard sell against a traditional server.

Here is some food for thought a 42U server can theoretically take 42 servers. Anyone ever checked the back of the rack? It is simple not possible to run 42 power cords to the PDUs.
