Comment Re:Theoretically up to? (Score 1) 67

It's the number of nodes that can be connected into a single machine multiplied by the theoretical peak performance of each node (implying zero actual communication). The limit on the number of nodes can be limited by a range of things, from how many nodes are addressable by the networking hardware to an #IFDEF on the maximum number of nodes the software is willing to support.

Comment Re:Unexplained Achievement "The Maker"? (Score 1) 1582

As far as the total achievements go, I think it is a true sum of all the instances of each achievement. However, next to each achievement, it only shows the most significant power of two in the binary representation. So, if you have 70 +5 posts, it will only show 2^6 next to that achievement, but will contribute the full 70 points to the total.

Submission + - Ada inventor Jean Ichbiah dies

An anonymous reader writes: Jean Ichbiah, French inventor of the programming language Ada, died Jan. 26, at age 66. He suffered from brain cancer.

Ada, created at the end of the 1970s, was the first object-oriented language to become an international standard, in 1995. It is still widely used today, mainly for real-time systems in the aeronautical industry; the code is embedded in the Rafale and Mirage 2000 fighters and in the Boeing 777 airliner.

Submission + - how to stay anonymous online?

An anonymous reader writes: With recent news about certain industries giving people problems for even legal use of torrent clients and various instances of government snooping etc, I'm wondering how one can stay anonymous and still (without being a jerk abusing the TOR system) being able to download/upload large files?

After any salary raise, you will have less money at the end of the month than you did before.
