Just put the core frame on a big. powerful magnet...
Geez, now you've dredge up a memory I tried to suppress all these years. I once used a language (BASIC? On the Apple II? Fortran on the IBM 1130?) that insisted that constants start with I, J, K or something like that, while the other letters are reserved for variables, or some such nonsense (yes the memory is still somewhat suppressed).
"with predictive accuracy at 40 per cent over short periods"
I only screw up the next step half the time.
Given my handle, I felt that I had to make a comment.
First,: De gustibus non est disputandum.
Second: I consume about 5 lbs (2.25kg) of meat a week, go figure...
We presume that the planet Mars is the reference in the manfrommars handle; what do you call someone from the Vega star system?
That’s the case for most users, but I have genetic analyses that are highly parallel, so more cores scales better than more clock speed.
For example, one of my jobs would typically take a month or so, using all 24 threads of a 12 core machine, running 24/7. I would love to have a 48 thread machine, because it should almost halve the time of the run. It is much harder, and gets into impossible territory, to scale clock speed in a similar way: A 2.5 GHz chip could possibly be sped up to 5GHz, but 10 or 20GHz? I do appreciate higher clock speeds, it’s just that more cores gives me more bang for the buck.
When you get down to the basics, a GPU is a massively parallel chip, because much of the graphics task can be nicely parallelized. One can imagine (hope?) that other common tasks can better take advantage of getting paralleized to the extent possible. Modern OS’s already generate many threads, to take advantage of the cores available.

With all the comments so far, and nobody has mentioned yet another benefit of always wearing a tinfoil hat?
& where is the tinfoil hat icon hiding these days????
Almost a megawatt-hour per transaction?!!!
Here I am, switching to LEDs and adopting other power-saving measures, just to save a few kilowatt-hours per year...
Bitcoin is an ecological disaster in addition to all the other bad things they say about it.
Icon is most appropriate ——>
They both orbit Uranus, and wipe out Klingons.
Kid’s joke a I heard some years ago.
I look forward to the day when autonomous cars become common, the IT folks will then need to download both kinds of drivers.
On the face of it it, the observation that fake goes farther than non-fake says that the twats, at least in the aggregate, can and do know the difference, and treat the one differently than the other.
Being more inclined to pÉ¹ÉÊoÉ snoÉ¯ÊuouÉ's point of view (how stupid the average person is, etc.), I wonder if they analyzed if there is a distinct subset of twats who are responsible for most of the fake re-tweets.
In flight attendant. "Your attention please, passengers. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the captain has now illuminated the fasten-seatbelt sign; as we are encountering s spot of flatulence."
I'm with you, they already have an amazing virtual reality product, not involving hardware at all, just look at how many people already bought it! Even us sceptics have been persuaded to chime in.
That ‘Stob’ is bots spelled backwards?
Truly bots, huh, makes you wonder who (or what) is writing these columns.
I liked that the best as well.
My feeble try:
Hoping the cod stay thawed.
Let’s see if the commentards can come up with more, better variations.
Imagine 10 x 100W light bulbs in a closed 70 cm cube.
I would not want to touch the surface.

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy,
beg, borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.
The effective range and laser power are tremendously important:
Even a relatively slow 500 mph missile/projectile traverses 2 mile in only 14 seconds.
This is all the time available to the laser to kill it, or be killed.
I wonder how long a 60 kw, presumably IR laser needs to dwell on the target to melt thru.
and not somewhere in Scotland, that will likely leave the U.K. after the new referendum.
Bacterial cell walls (peptidoglycan) consist of, in part, D-amino acids.
Perhaps they should also test some bacterial cultures, and see if they find any signature of life.
if obnoxiousWebsite.com does that to me, and assuming I still would like to get in and take a look, I give them "theidiots@obnoxiousWebsite.com".
Seems to let me in most times.

Let me echo "Ad Astra Tabernamque".
Aim high, and make sure you have a drink in hand.
If they had lived up to their name and their mission.
We do miss the sting of the dearly departed Sarah Bee.
I like that term, manglement.
I totally agree with you. My 1st job was to do assembly programming. It taught me how to go about learning new languages, low-level and high.
Assembly language programming itself is not particularly difficult. It's just damn demanding, in a tedious sort of way: you have to take care of bloody everything yourself. Most of the time, you don't get to call on some module wrtten by some else, because it simply doesn't exist.
Maybe with the IoT demand, there will be the equivalent of modules that will become available. That would be nice, if you can trust it, that is.
Maybe it will save some UFO enthusiasts from getting probed by aliens.
Wait: Is Imperial College London an undercover, alien institution, finally coming up with a product based on decades of alien abduction and probings?
More than anyone at El Reg, you built a community around the many interests you pursued.
Our condolences to your family.
And let the software figure out which fibers are pointing at which galaxies (versus you run-of-the-mill stars and other objects).
Step 1. Buy LinkedIn to create a Clippy on steroids-cubed, and sic it on the users of Office365

Step 3. Profit!
I don't have that book, but Levinthal was prolific: I still have his 1979 sole-authored book ("6502 Assembly Language Programming" ), as well as the 1982 Leventhal and Saville "6502 Assembly Language Subroutines".
All 5 of my 6502 assembly language books are still up there on my top shelf.
Shaun, is that you?
There is no globe to warm, it's a disk!
destroyed by a deathstar a hundred or years ago? (That qualifies as a long, long time ago to me, and it's certainly far enough away).
From my reading of the description, the most hilarious part is that they hashed the original value 8 times to generate the key; the trouble is, they didn't specify a hash function (!). So all that hashing did nada. The output was the same as the input.
and the fact that their connectors are all male: gay mice?
Imagine if, instead of the piece of halibut, you had discussed the piece of cod...
I totally agree with Big John.
McDonnell Douglas had already demonstrated vertical takeoff and landing by a rocket some 20 years ago.
It's that order of magnitude greater delta-v and all the challenges that come with it that is the real rocket science.
Not to belittle the New Shepard achievement, but Musk is openly aiming for Mars, Bezos is only aiming for 100 or so klicks up.
(Amazon has loads of offerings)
It is small (2200 sq. mi) in comparison to, say, the British Isle, but not as small as the cartoon tropical island notion might suggest. It's a bit smaller than the Greater London metropolitan area (3200 sq. mi).
I'd wager that many would relish the propspects of being trapped on Bali for a few days.
Hush, she might starts blaming écureuils next, maybe even the one that is in some of the XKCD drawings.
If Elon Musk were to crowd source funds for a Martian mission, I would gladly contribute, and I am sure there will be millions like me.
I saw a California condor in the wild many years ago, before they captured all remaining 20 odd birds and put them in a zoo for captive breeding, to try to save the species.
What a magnificent beast it was, one could easily have mistaken it for a small gilder plane. It must have glided a mile or more, riding the thermals, before it twitched its wings a bit, and went in a slightly different direction.

Thanks for the hint.
