This could be a marketing strategie of Sony to find new markets not in server market but in living rooms with home pcs. But very intresting.
RSS is still out of date.Hu? Neuwagen
3,000-sq-ft playstation 3 supercomputing facility: Thats pretty cool :)
I belive its an genius marketing campaign
3,000-sq-ft supercomputing facility! Wow thats crazy.
3,000-sq-ft supercomputing facility, that's probably all gamers biggest dream. Oh well, thinking about it, what took full room of computers 30 years ago, is now fit in a cellphone, i guess we'll just have to wait to play crazy games.
Playstations starts to play a role in many stuff, with ATHome projects and supercomputer gaming dreams :)
Roleplaying game, since 1990
What's with all the wrong dates? RSS feed is all out of order
I was using one of their feeds on one of my linux sites and never noticed the wrong dates until someone asked me about it. I sent an email to admin but I haven't seen any response yet.
I noticed that also. Cant seem to see why myself.
They're a company with some chutzpah, in the good sense. I've been using their Yellow Dog Linux ever since version 2.3 on a Power Mac 9600 SMP box, which I later sold to get my G3 (also runs YDL). If you've ever used Red Hat Linux or Fedora, then YDL will be quite familiar.
Several years ago, they sold me a briQ--a low-power G3 small form factor unit--that only recently I decided to use for another purpose. The box was intended as a cluster node, but it made a fine mail server as well. We had a power outage for just over two days in my neighborhood. The briQ and the DSL router were the only things on my UPS, which, admittedly, used a car battery. I had no electricity...but I could still check my home email from work. Since then, power requirements have been a consideration in every computer purchase that I've made.
They've been working on PowerPC GNU/Linux for quite some time, and it's neat to see them continue to be successful.
