Nice joined up thinking here...
To communicate with the Home Office they REQUIRE you to use PGP!
and got redirected to a 404 page not found, clearly that's a hot bed of kiddy porn....
Interestingly, just tried it again 2 minutes later and it seems to be working (7:30am 14/1)
Sequencing isn't the problem
It's actually understanding the data when it comes off the line.
The Bioinformatics software to analyze the data isn't the worlds most efficient! It requires thousands of cpu hours to find a single SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism). With a single a full genome being available in 15 minutes it's going to require an enormous cpu farm just to keep up!
Oh wait.... now I get it....
Better than native
I've used wine for some time.
For some applications it's better than trying to run the app on a native windows platform. The example I can think of specifically was the Enterasys Roamabout management platform - this was hideously slow and unreliable on windows natively, under wine it was slightly less hideously slow and a great deal more reliable.
A better solution
Power efficiency was a hot topic at SC07. Practically all the large research institutes looking to gain efficiencies in one way or another.
However outside the conference rooms however were the gazillion flashing light of the casinos.
I very much doubt that all the power savings made by datacentres around the world by any of the systems touted at SC would come close to that of nuking Reno & Vegas from orbit.
A "Zero day flaw" what exactly do you mean by this apart from getting a threating headline?
A zero-day exploit, fair enough - that's an exploit that's in the wild that is using a previously unknown security flaw.
This has been discovered by researchers, communicated to the developers and a work-around is available. There's nothing zero day about this.
I thought ballots were meant to be anonymous?
The paranoid among us don't vote even with paper ballots as the serial number of the ballot is linked against the name and address you give at the polling station.
I certainly wouldn't have any confidence in a system that involved electronic voting & electronic identity!
