Thanks for the explanation.
Admittedly not as large but I worked on 2000+ node clusters in the early oughts. They way they got "efficiently used" was they were broken up and jobs generally only used a small subset of relatively adjacent nodes. One scientist would use 40 cores on 10 servers sharing a switch, another 100 copies of a serial app on 100 cores etc. Every once and a while, and it was rare, an astrophysicist or whatever would actually use hundreds of cores concurrently for a parallel algorithm. It was by far the minority case though. That said it is ~13 years later and more tools to use parallel exist, and DOE, defense etc have more budget to pay for massive parallel code to be written and even if it is relatively junk if it runs faster in parallel throw 1B of computer at it and say "well our budget is +- 1 steath fighter anyways so
I agree. The very fact we'll know where this datacentre is probably means it will be being used for relatively lower security stuff. The exascale supercomputer for actually analyzing the NSA intercepts probably already exists.
right next to the calculator button. The 1 time a year you wish you had it you can hunt for it and push it. Maybe instead it could be a page down and with shift a page up button Rather than when navigating having to go way the hell off the home row to hit the tiny buttons.
but why she kept coming back?
Or alternatively assumes that you are widest at the ass and then taper down at the legs. It could just be an optical illusion but I don't think so: the seats look narrower at the front than the back. They are making them irregular quadralaterals and then overlapping them as far as I can tell. Essentially assuming everyone is going to be cool having their feet and knees touching for the whole flight. Nutcracker ballet.
Because generally the stewards are only seated for takeoff and landing. Planes tilt towards the nose you'd have an uncomfortable flight in a backwards facing set you couldn't just lean back on your seat and sleep for example. You'll be ever so slightly leaning forward
It looks like from the picture that the extra compacity comes from having the seats taper Ie the seats next to you "overlap" what would normally be your leg room. This isn't using geometry to save space, well it is but in the weakest sense. It is assuming people will be okay having their legs together for an entire flight. They do realize guys have balls that need some space right?
Mah I considered the x1 but the super small laptop isn't for me I need a full sized keyboard and no num pad throwing off the alignment of the keyboard with the screen.. Lights instead of back lit keyboard that just sounds annoying.
Especially when they are in the middle of the news feed later.
Haha. So true. Tofu has to have one of the most nasty look and texture of tofu. It combines rubbery with slimy in one go.
I'd have to see the artist's contracts but it is pretty scary if the label has all the power to negotiate something like that. The songwriters, artists etc are supposed to get royalties having the label decide to give away free samples is insane. I want the movie industry to do the same thing: I'll pay them the second time I watch their movie.
Oh also: one thing once this thing is out in the wild for a while I guess then the number of new subscribers tapers off. But it would suck to be a new artist that just happens to have their album coming out the week that this goes live. All your prime time on the chart gets sucked up by Apple and not paid for. Probably screws your billboard list too since you aren't selling copies.
I don't get it how did Apple get away with saying they won't pay royalties? Everyone else has to. What they just say "well we aren't making money so we don't have to pay"? Can I use that when I seed my torrents?
I don't. Because our bandwidth caps are so low on our phones netflix dossn't make a lot of sense (also a much smaller selection than in the US, talking maybe 10 new movies a month, most 6mths-years old). So you "acquire" things in different ways.
