Comment: Lenovo think pad works beautifully for me (Score 1) 708

by crivens (#37826104) Attached to: Ask Slashdot: GNU/Linux Laptops?

I have a Lenovo at work that runs Fedora 14 beautifully. Performance is excellent and graphically it does everything I need, which is typically web development. Though I do quite a bit of browsing in chrome. The default graphics card is fast enough, and I presume it's an inboard Intel chipset. I don't know what CPU it has but I'm guessing it's two years old; it was someone's hand me down.

Comment: Backups aren't infallible - which medium? (Score 1) 511

by crivens (#31565316) Attached to: What Is Holding Back the Paperless Office?

We store our home photos on CDs and only print the really good photos at Walmart/Blacks/Shoppers etc. This saves us money but we get to keep some photos that aren't good enough to print but worth keeping all the same. So we're almost "paperless" in that sense. But a paperless office needs a solid backup strategy but what backup medium can survive in the long run 100%? An office (or home user) could burn to CD/DVD but how long will they last before they become inaccessible?

An Open Source Compiler From CUDA To X86-Multicore 71

Posted by timothy
from the abstraction-gains-a-layer dept.
Gregory Diamos writes "An open source project, Ocelot, has recently released a just-in-time compiler for CUDA, allowing the same programs to be run on NVIDIA GPUs or x86 CPUs and providing an alternative to OpenCL. A description of the compiler was recently posted on the NVIDIA forums. The compiler works by translating GPU instructions to LLVM and then generating native code for any LLVM target. It has been validated against over 100 CUDA applications. All of the code is available under the New BSD license."

When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.
