This is a title
They learned the hard way that a pure oxygen environment can be very bad. See "Apollo 1 disaster" for the reason why.
Wot no wireless part 2...
Yes most people will have a wireless router, however this device is also a print server. Most routers are where the phone line terminates, most printers are on a desk somewhere else, maybe next to a wireless PC if the house isn't wired with CAT5/6. Given that this has to sit beside the printer for it's USB connection wirelss would have extremely useful to save having to use a PC as a print server. This isn't a NAS device only, it would seem to be most useful serving portable devices for combined NAS/print.
Wot no wireless ????????????
The lack of wireless connectivity makes this a non starter for most users.

No ID3 - WTF?
Even the chapest £9.99 MP3 player hanging on a hook in Tesco does ID3
Wrong... it's still free
Solaris 10 is still free. If you don't register for a free Entitlement Document it's just 90 days.
"The registration process to receive an Entitlement Document is part of the Solaris download process, with the Entitlement Document being returned to you via e-mail. For this reason, YOU MUST PROVIDE A WORKING E-MAIL ADDRESS AS PART OF YOUR SUN DOWNLOAD CENTER ACCOUNT. If you fail to do so, you will not receive an Entitlement Document and will only have the right to evaluate Solaris for 90 days. "
Not that liiving room...
... as in comfy couch and big screen TV. More like the the sweeping steps of the motherland. Lebensraum was used by the nazis to refer to extra "living space" for Germany offered by those countries conquered by them.
Does it have the facility to post your "high score" for everyone to see??
That was the ACT Sirius. 1.2M floppies in the early 80's using variable speed drives.
OpenSolaris on ARM - perfect fit
"It is hard to imagine there is a lot of room for OpenSolaris on the kinds of devices served bv Atom-based processors"
Embedded NAS anyone. Throw in some cheap SATA and/or flash and with ZFS you have proper NAS on the cheap. Current ARM Cortex cores are more than capable of running that setup. Perfect media hub in a black box.
D'oh! - Homer Simpson??
If I remember rightly Peter Glaze of Crackerjack (...... CRACKERJACK!!!!!) fame used it long before Homer.

Son of God ??
Looks more like the bass player from Spinal Tap
Good grief Matt
HP's delivery of Tukwila based systems is making Sun's Rock timescales look positively speedy.
Anyway what do you expect from a reseller, it's not like HP actually design anything any more anyway.
Why is this under Servers and not Channel
After all HP are now just a big reseller of other peoples IP.
"Invent"... my arse.
I'll believe when I see the Playmobil.
Any chance of including some useful metrics in these benchmarks, like IOPS?? Not everyone wants to schlump multi-gig files all over the place. For example somme SSD's really make ZFS fly when used as a ZIL device, but IOPS is the killer there.
With you on that. Butter spoils it. Me ma made jam sandwiches for my school lunch in the 70's. By the time lunchtime came all the jam had soaked into the the bread. Nothing beats a couple of slices of rasberry flavoured pink bread !!
Snapping plod on double yellows outside the chippy...
"In line with the model used in related laws, the offence itself is "strict liability": it is the gathering of information that will be deemed to be the offence, and a defence that the person had a "reasonable excuse for their action" is only allowed after the offence has been charged."
So let me get this right. If I photograph an officer committing an offence, I can only use this information once I've been charged as part of my own defence.
Re Device above
It's the head unit for the 7410. It's actually a 2U AMD based server.
An observation on games like this
"key clashes between US, Japanese, Soviet Union and Nazi Germany forces at the close of World War II"
Seems to be someone missing here...
I'm not British but I if I recall correctly they did play a major part in the battles against all of the Axis forces. Yet that contribution seems to be ignored in most WW2 shooters/RTS games etc. In fact the Commonwealth forces in general get a pretty raw deal. In this particular case it can't just be the usual "Merka saves the world single handed" as the Ruskies are included.
The thin ermin line....
How many people like myself have previously held this lot in near contempt yet time and again they seem to be the only branch of this whole rotten system with any grasp of reality.
Forelock duly touched/tugged in your general direction, your Lordships and Ladyships.
These systems are perfect for consolidation, LDOMS and/or Containers; a big pool of threads and memory in a 4U enclosure .
Listen just because Oracle are still clinging to a late 20th century licensing model, that's not going to stop hardware evolving. Eventually as the core count increases on AMD and Intel also, Oracle will be dragged kicking and screaming into the real world.
...a little bit of Acorn that refuses to die...
And the venerable 6502 of course which ARM borrows heavily from..
Where are all the Z80 fanbois now.. eh.. eh.. ?
Sorry just warped back to 1982 for a minute there
Just out of curiosity...
Does anyone know why the shuttle can't go from Hubble to the ISS. I thought the ISS was lower so it would involve slowing the shuttle to a lower orbit which I would suppose is easier than raising to a higher one. I know there is a reason but what is it?
Private space couriers vie for NASA deliveries
No delivery and a card stuck through the airlock if they don't open the hatch within 10 seconds.....
@AC Re: "and the chance of then being mistaken for a terrorist"
You might like to know that "scotch" is a drink. I think the term you are looking for is "Scots" or "Scottish"...

Anyone who remembers those shots of Linford Christie doing the 100m can see the possibilities for the lads too .... well for some of us anyway!
Interesting but meaningless
TPC-C has become the 0 to 60 of benchmarks, interesting and entertaining for the vendors as a test of tuning skills and extravagant hardware configurations, but absolutely useless as a real world performance metric.
@ Nono Nano
"Will my Atom require extra TMS2114 RAM chips to run iPhone software ?"
Yes and you can still solder them on top of the originals and bend out the Chip Select pins !
I'll have ...
.. 10 litres of pepper sauce and a couple of cases of your finest claret. Bring the fillet first, then the sirloin.. then
Just a thought
In the accompanying picture, just who is the US ground crew directing his hand signal at .. ???
Couln't agree more
My two kids saved for a Wii after playing one at a friend's house. When they got it - it was used every day for about two weeks. Since then it hasn't been touched, that's two months ago. My son has gone back to his PSP and my daughter is once again engrossed in SIMS2 on the PC.
I think the Wii is now buried under DVD cases...
In five years time...
......replace "Syria" with "UK".
What a contrast..
...France, Germany and the rest of ESA, produce technology like this and the U.K. can't find a couple of mil' to run Jodrell Bank properly.
Software part was easy
They didn't have to do much, the software has been around for years.
@Robert Hill Diesels Pollute more
Funny how all the oil burner drivers whine on about CO2 emissions as if they were the only pollutant. In a city environment by far the most dangerous emissions to people are PM10's and soot, emitted by guess what - diesels. You only have to watch some moron in TDi flooring it away from the lights and you'd swear the thing was running on house coal from the smoke. That's also why my air-con automatically switches to re-circulate after a couple of mins behind a diesel.
When diesels are as clean as petrol cars, i.e. active catalytic converters and soot filters, then you can lecture petrol drivers on the environment. Until then, as I drive round behind your stinking hulk, my petrol car is actually cleaning up after you.
Paris, because she knows all about emissions.
UK TV History
FYI on Freeview UK TV History (Ch12) is "history".. after 6pm. Then the slot switches to Dave (Ch19).
Dave is sh*te and I was really getting into the repeats of Secret Army on History, one of my favourites from the 70's, but can't get them after 6pm now.
Not all repeats are crap, and don't mention Allo Allo ... please!
Think that's bad???
I saw a "Snow White" style bed in my local furniture shed. I went straight to the manager and demanded it be removed. I mean imagine putting innocent children to sleep in a bed themed around a slut who's idea of a good time is to shack up with 7 men she's never met before.
I was outraged, we must protect our children's innocence....
Now if you'll excuse me I have to attend to my 10 year old son who can't work out how to use the rocket launcher in Call of Duty 4.
Paris, because she is the model daughter.
Works fine on 64 bit Solaris 10. If you will use a toy operating system then expect these things...
.... grabs asbestos jacket.
What if the dogs defrost first and are a bit hungry.....
Even with licencing costs the T1 still wins.
For example Oracle:
Power 6 - 0.75 licence per core = 1.5. Round up (Oracle say you must) = 2 licences
UltraSPARC T1 - 0.25 licence per core = 2 licences
T1 wins hands down on performance, cost, power consumption.. and the T2 is just a few months away!
"On that sort of anecdotal level, when was the last time you heard a group of women start off talking about a camping trip and wind up in a discussion of whether or not they knew enough to raise steam on a tourist-line locomotive, in the event that the zombies attacked?"
Now that's just forward planning... another thing us blokes are better at!
RTFS (S - Sign)
Ehhh... is it just me who sees the real problem here...
"there was a little sign saying, if the light is green, open the gates and drive through"
GATES, I mean if she'd done what it said there would be no problem. The sat nav got here to the right place, now if she had been smart enough to understand the sign....!
Sheesh.. a near miss for the Darwins methinks
