Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Sorry to disillusion you, but people really need to understand just how little power the 99% has.
Wait till they get rid of net neutrality. Comments like that will take a loooong time to reach the server.
I'm actually impressed. Who else is this honest? Most people wouldn't mention the oil and gas, just the environmental impact. Whether or not I agree with them, I respect the straightforwardness.
Nah, they know the beginning ratio and ending ratio of the different types. If they are not the same, then some must have flipped (or rotated, or whatever language the neutrino guys use these days).
Really? Look inside any machine nowadays. I'm working on an 8 core machine right now. The individual cores aren't going to get that much faster in the years to come, but the number of cores in a given processor is going to increase dramatically. Unless you want your programs to stay at the same execution speed for the next 5-10 years, you need parallel. And what we need is languages and compilers that abstract away the actual hard work so that anybody can make a parallel program.
But how much is actually used to perform a search, and how much is just the cost of running the servers? I doubt that running searches on google uses much more power than their servers just idling.
