Re: Little-league stuff

On a larger scale- a VAX 11/730 ( IIRC) test machine in a little office.

When the aircon failed over the weekend, the disk drive (huge box the size of a washing machine, about 50Mb...) started to squeal. Eventually the disk stopped rotatating, just as we came in.

Fearing the worst, a quick shutdown was in order.

After the AC was fixed, the VAX started up without any complaint and kept running thereafter.

Servers? Wimpy little tin boxes... :)

YOU! DEGRASSE! It's time to make Pluto a proper planet again, says NASA boffin

Re: It's no big deal

Well, to shut up the debate, we could agree that the 'dwarf' bit is silent, and just call Pluto a ... planet.

Or we could invoke Stallman and call it GNU/Pluto - that would certainly lead to it being called a planet by most people, just like now.

After all, to paraphrase a wise elephant- "A planet's a planet, no matter how small..."
