Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Even with the fancy floating ball bearing it can be picked.
Google says they have the cold air come up from their raised floor.
Google uses a different approach.
Google realized that the so-called cold aisle in front of the machines could be kept at a relatively balmy 80 degrees or so—workers could wear shorts and T-shirts instead of the standard sweaters. And the “hot aisle,” a tightly enclosed space where the heat pours from the rear of the servers, could be allowed to hit around 120 degrees. That heat could be absorbed by coils filled with water, which would then be pumped out of the building and cooled before being circulated back inside. Add that to the long list of Google’s accomplishments: The company broke its CRAC habit.
They also might not have a million servers,
a tiny embossed plaque that reads july 9, 2008. google’s millionth server. But executives explain that this is a cumulative number, not necessarily an indication that Google has a million servers in operation at once
That has a link to the exact terms, with examples.
I think you have to do a software as a service but you don't have to host with MS. They will push it hard but you can host where ever you want.
I was thinking more about Windows licensing, as to run those you need to run Windows, and server versions of Windows are fucking expensive with licensing.
No need to use the Express editions of Visual Studio when you can get the full version for free through Bizspark
Bizspark is Microsoft's way of hooking start ups. Free licenses to all MS software, yes office included (even Office for Mac), for 3 years. Then you pay an "exit" fee of $99
After the 3 years you can continue to use the products you just don't get anymore licenses, and yes they can be used for commercial stuff.
A little fine print, you must meet the following requirements:
- Developing software?
- Privately held?
- Less than three years old?
- Making less than US $1M annually?
It has been in use since 1989. So yes there has been more reports of crime in 21 years than people currently live there now.
My guess is that is true no matter where you live.
The Wikipedia article states that the satellite also broadcasts the same information as a "GPS" satellite. Don't know if that makes it a GPS sat or not since it is commerical, but it does all the function of a GPS sat plus more (WAAS).
"The space segment consists of multiple geosynchronous communication satellites which broadcast the correction messages generated by the Wide-area Master Stations for reception by the User segment. The satellites also broadcast the same type of range information as normal GPS satellites, effectively increasing the number of satellites available for a position fix..."

Dish Network has the Family Pack for $19.99. That gets you 55 channels. Sure most are family orientated but you also get channels like:
DO IT YOURSELF
FOX NEWS CHANNEL
THE SCIENCE CHANNEL
Or The Welcome Pack for $9.99 (23 channels)
Home & Garden
Dish Network is moving to the small packages and it sells pretty good.
I was hoping OMG PONIES!!! would make a comeback today.
Same here I was a slashdot reader but i missed OMGPONIES!!!
I feel so left out and cold
The guys who created the Rouge Equifax Signing Certificate used 200+ PS3 to help find the MD5 collision.
We had more than 200 PS3s at our disposal, located at the "PlayStation Lab" of Arjen Lenstra's Laboratory for Cryptologic Algorithms at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland
There are tons more you can do with a PS3 than play games.
Speaking from experience: Microsoft site licenses for its products for academic institution cost $0
I dont think that you are speaking from Experience.
Micrsoft would never give away Server 2008, Vista, VS 2008 for a whole school for free. On the page you linked to you need to click on 'Compare Subscriptions'
and you will see that the cheapest they offer is $399 a year. That only gives you online access.
Each department needs to sign up for MSDNAA. The CS dept. cant use its software keys for the Math or Engineering dept.
The ACM club at my school sells Vista, and VS 2008 for $20 each. If my school did the 3 years online and media for $1437, it would only take 24 students a year to buy Visual Stuido and it pays for itself.
Sure it is not free, but you are not losing money on it.
