I was wondering the same thing.
I know a Dell too, small world...
These days servers have so much memory that they can hold the image in RAM which should lessen the load greatly; moreover the IB network should mean that the provisioning node(s) can heave out the images quickly.
Yep, I think they'd bug him a lot
"Mind you... seeing that advert go back to back with one for Tena Lady."
you mean the lady on the new ten pound note?
No, because it sucks
The BOFH's company's caretaker is one of the few survivors* in the stories; I wonder if the BOFH/PFI had a hand in this?
*Security camera footage "leaks" or "disappearances" can be so useful...
"BT unilaterally decided that we all wanted to suck FROM the internet and never send large amounts of data TO the internet."
A cynic would suggest that they're trying to protect their leased line market...
It's not supposed as to be happening yet, but sooner or later, the FBI, NSA, etc
Well, that'd save GCHQ a job...
Intel are very keen to get into this game too; maybe if push Phi/Nervana whilst there's a GPU storage then they can catch up
The DGX-1 is the only machine of its type around at the moment. Sure, you can build your own machine with five GPU cards, but you still want get close to the performance go the DGX-1 due to its custom bus features allowing date to be transferred to the GPU cards at impressive speeds.
Cray sell a box with eight P100s and NVlink too. I'm sure other vendors are getting in on the party.
The Titan-X is a consumer card aimed at gamers; the DGX-1 has cards designed for compute servers which cost rather a lot more money. There's also Infiniband and NV-link.
I want some of what the worshipers are drinking
The state of the art in HPC is about eight or so GPU and beyond that you need to give someone like Cray a ring. Even then, they can't go much beyond that without all sorts of bus contention...
Full marks to BUPA for coming clean and notifying the affected people. Getting the cops involved would possibly lower the chance of a company 'fessing up to this kind of breach. I guess there are no right answers here.
If the DBAs granted each group of users access to a single view with a subset of anonymised data then ODBC access could be reasonably secure.
In Europe I'd say the Dutch, the Swiss and the Scandinavian countries could have both the motivation and the skills to field an anti carrier weapon.
Why the Swiss? Switzerland is 100s of KM from the nearest coast and I assume that in a war situation the Italians would object to a carrier that near to their coast too.
Cornwall will ask to join as an associate member and the smuggling will start again.
Nope we'll be "wrecking"
We gave up trying to back up most data (~30PB of genomics and imaging data) a few years ago and now replicate.
I don't think there are that many alternatives TBH. I'd rather use SAP than some of the Oracle stuff though
What are you guys Tooting on about?
I bet if it had been FlOSS then would he have had the same problem?
You R correct
I thought the Apple stores generally have and sell the Mu-so from Naim?
The currency is called eth and there are various versions. Do you think they have eth0, eth1 etc - not at all hard to Google for!
I imagine that most bot nets would have PCs with Intel integrated graphics rather than a discrete GPU. I suspect that if you're keen enough on PCs to want a decent GPU then you'll know about patching, anti-virus etc.
I'm not paying again for a subscription so it can be delivered to me again on my own bandwidth cost.
It's more convenient for me to [losslessly] stream* than it is to walk over to my shelves, find the CD and put it on. It has the added benefit that artists that I like make a bit more money out of it.
*Either from my NAS or the Internet
This is the responsible thing to do, there should always be someone ready to take over at a moment's notice. What would happen if Linus or a similar person got knocked down by a bus?
Blue Steel surely...
But if/when things go tits up and the inevitable blamestorming happens, the board can point the finger at $OUTSOURCER and deny responsibility...
110 Baud was good enough for us.
Young people these days!
Yep, these "millennials" get baud so easily these days...
I used to love the way it made your computer unusable for a few minutes when starting a Java programme on a machine with a single core.
And yes, it definitely seems as though the real Software Engineers have left
There's a strong chance that the Software Engineers agree with you; but have to implement it anyway
You've got to wonder if all the old software engineers haven't retired and it's the under 35s who've taken over product design and development with the executives in thrall to the ideas of youth.
Probably the over 35 product managers trying to get cool and down with the kids*.
* Well they would do if their knees would let them...
You copied me!
"With Entanet now part of the CityFibre family, our combined offering will accelerate the take-up of services over our growing network footprints, leveraging Entanet's enviable channel partner network and continuing to transform digital connectivity for thousands of UK businesses."
Does this guy speak English?
Nope, just a load of Rams in a field
There are a few ARM supercomputers, but they're currently a bit small. IIRC the one in Barcelona is 0.5PF which is under 1/8 of the Bull system. Give it time and I'm sure there will be some advanced boffinery on ARM.
I think you had to RAC your brains for that one...
If they can bear it....
Maybe they can start off their own small "hetro" computer in some kind of cottaging industry?
They're not going to throw *a* fridge, they're going to throw *The* Fridge!
Have a Perry Sir ->
I was expecting Mr Astley's finest - not sure if that's any better...
Yes, from orbit ->
This time an actual pint for the author...
...And a vague promise to look at the icons more carefully
The Geek's Guides are great - keep 'em coming.
Pint for the author ->
Anyone who does science expeirments using anything but SI Units should be tarred and feathered and forced to walk the plank (insert other medieval punishment as you see fit)!
I'd have given you an upvote if you'd have spelt it Planck - Yargh ->
This marks the first time a German team has won a major performance award on their home soil and is likely to result in the declaration of a national holiday featuring parades and a statue raising in their home town of Nuremburg.
Why the sarcasm? This is quite an achievement for some students; >99% of the readership of this Esteemed Organ wouldn't be capable of doing this.
"throw pillows and teddies"
That's well weapon...
