FASTRA II Puts 13 GPUs In a Desktop Supercomputer

Globally Mobile Re:Swordfish (127 comments)

was there supposed to be a question here?

oh wow. Yeah, there was. And it had to do with this new computer. And I failed. Epic. Brain. Fart.

What I was trying to ask was a bit of a wandering thought, so I don't even know if it needs to be repeated. But I am always up for answering questions I know the answer to, so here goes... I wanted to say... Why dos this piece of tech-hardware remind me of the computer/monitor setup in that cheesy (though who doesn't love cheese cept those that are lactose intolerant, and maybe a few anti-cheeseheads... [Though I doubt they exsist])yet fun/silly holowood flick Swordfish. (What with it's multi-GPU's, I am assuming (another good way to make an arse out myself, woot) it can run that many screens, and pump-crunch through the needs of the program in record time.

Also just was a bit in awe of the tech-specs I saw, and was drooling, so I had to let it out, somewhere.
Wow that was a rambling... *crawls back under his warm lizard-style hovel, and hides*

Flexible, Color OLED Screens For E-Readers

Globally Mobile Re:The problem with an OLED e-reader is the E. (118 comments)

Well, there is also the need for light in some places hungering for the lumen of even a few candlepower... Better overhaul then expecting them to continue adding to the emissions through other forms of more deadly illumination... .. . Some people use their screens to look @for keys n/ such. .. ...

EU About To Grant US Unlimited Access To Banking Data

Now while the privacy issue is an obvious one, are there also any sum +'s that will boost our banking in a better direction? Or is this just another way to leave a trail of breadcrumblies behind us?

Legalize Marijuana!

Globally Mobile Re:Roll it, lite it, pass it around! (16 comments)

Heheheh, I so would if I could my man, things been dry around here for me; when it comes to two things. LOL. Greens, and Pinks. :P As far as the harmful effects, all I was pondering was when most people smoke, they smoke, they don't vaporize, or eat it. And smoke isn't the best thing to be pumping into your lungs. Then again niether is the air in most parts of the world, so... But trust, if I could, I would be doing just that right now; kick back, smoke a phat azz joint, an prolly watch the new sanctuary. LOL. Like the quote, btw!

Legalize Marijuana!

Globally Mobile Roll it, lite it, pass it around! (16 comments)

uhhh, 900 number? Looks like Northern NJ, though I do for some reason remember three digit exchanges (when you didn't have to dial the area code) that was 973 that were like, dating/prono/pay-per-pscyhic/call-a-doc lines. So what are the costs? And I dunno, couldn't this be some sort of sting-like op? Also, in addendum, if he wants proof he should just look at the things that 5-7 states have done when it comes to the attempt to at least de-criminalize if not outright legalize. Maybe even more. Would be great if they would just bust it out an get it done with, lived in Portland, OR for a while, was a card carrying member, had my growers card and my own card saying it was for my medical issues (and my guy who grew/found for me was in tight, finally created something that allowed me to focus without the need for the toxic stuff i been feeding my brain upon since i was 4 or so, back in the early brain-race daze. Blargh. Now in another state that has voted on the issue, and I believe at least upon a first offense (after at the discretion of the officer) you can be let go with a warning, without it going on record. There are way too many people sitting rotting in prisons for possesion/growing/intent to distribute something that yeah, can be harmful for you, but come on, compare that all with alchahol *says this while taking a shot of HUNTERBLOOD! WooT JaGEr! Uhh, on the other hand, yeah, can sometimes make you a little stupid, Homer-Simpson like and what not. But peaceful in general, and being the reciever of the Piece of Pie, maybe he should lead that path for us. Sorry if that was way to rantulating, just got me goin. Been a rough one. :P

Squatters Abusing iPhone App Store

Globally Mobile Squatters, or Followers of the Subgenius? (121 comments)

Squatter, or just extreme slacker?

When I first reached out to google for the definition of squatter, I got a bit confused as to where the illegality lay[gr.?]. The definition of squatter hereseems to express two types, those with legal, and illegal. When I switched the search to cybersquatter, I then understood more about where the laws start, (though seems a amendment may be needed) here in the United States, Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act passed in 1999, an amendment to the Trademark Act 1946 also known as the Lanham Act.

Where am I going with this? How does one determine good faith? How do you differentiate between a person who might struggle to get it up (specially if a deadline looms overhead, further if that deadline is tightened) and one who is squatting maliciously, awaiting a time when they can resell the slot to someone else who has developed the application, put in the sweat, time, thought, tears, hours, etc...
To end with a wee bit of entertainment amidst all this legal jumbo-gumbo, figured I might throw a little head-nod to J.R. Bob "Dobbs" (not MS's failed project). Slacking is an artform, a religion, one that many take quite seriously. So much so they used it in the naming of a Linux distro. Slacker? Or Ill-memes willful disconsolation?

Tech industry braces for more antitrust scrutiny

Globally Mobile Antitrust (I'll take mine without sesame seeds) (1 comments)

Popping in on this entry, think it's of import, though would like to see more links backing it up. Mostly it is something that is on my mind often, the thought that when one tracks down who owns who owns who in most markets you wind up with a few. Though I suppose it's been this way for aeons. *shrugs*

Comcast vs FCC, courts ruling on net Neutrality?

Globally Mobile Globally Mobile writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Globally Mobile (1635415) writes "No decision has been made yet, but, if Friday's arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals in DC are any indication, it doesn't appear that the FCC will prevail in exerting its authority over Comcast. Losing this battle may be just what the FCC needs to move forward with its efforts to formalize net neutrality guidelines.
Comcast v. FCC The case before the court is an appeal from Comcast related to sanctions imposed on it by the FCC for discriminating against peer-to-peer networking file traffic in an effort to throttle bandwidth demand on its broadband network. Comcast's challenge claims the FCC has no such authority.
Where do you think this case is going? Who knows, the slashdot effect could have political ramifications, it certainly has other serious effects on other matters..."

Hacker refused extradition appeal

Globally Mobile Globally Mobile writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Globally Mobile (1635415) writes "According to the BBC, Computer hacker Gary McKinnon has been refused permission to appeal to the UK Supreme Court against his extradition to the US.

The High Court ruled the case was not of "general public importance" to go to the UK's highest court.

Glasgow-born Mr McKinnon, 43, of Wood Green, London, is accused of breaking into the US's military computer system.

Mr Mickinnon, who has Asperger's syndrome, insists he was just seeking evidence of UFOs.

In July he lost a High Court bid to avoid extradition."

GE: 1Tb micro Hologram Disc Readable by a Modified

Globally Mobile Globally Mobile writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Globally Mobile writes "The Register has this article concerning GE announcement that it has been developing a 1 Terabyte DVD size disk that can be read by a modified Blu-ray player. Peter Lorraine, GE's lab manager, talking at an Emerging Tech conference last week, said that license announcements could be expected soon. He also mentioned the notion of disks having the capacity of 100 Blu-ray disks, implying a 2.5TB or even 5TB capacity, gained by increasing the number of layers used for recording. The discs will be used for high-end commercial niches initially and then migrate to consumer markets in 2012-2015.
Also here is a video of the technology explained.

Seeking opinions on the best network hosts on the

Globally Mobile Globally Mobile writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Globally Mobile writes "It has been quite a while sense I registered a domain name, and I am looking for the best hosting solution for the least amount of money (preferably free, although a trial period would also be great). Quite embarrassingly I spent everything I had left for the rest of this week on the actual domain name, after finding that it was available, and getting a fairly good deal on the registration. But now I am stuck with a domain name, a few great ideas, and nowhere yet to host my pages. I am hoping to utilize PHP & SQL as well as modern web technologies. I would love to be able to find a host that allows me the ability to ssh in, set things up the way I would like, and might also be interested in utilizing my own portal management, such as Joomla!, as well as group project management software like egroupware, virtualzation software like vmware, and possibly a solution like packetfence, though that might be a bit more then I need, at the current time. I want to be able to set all of these things up myself, and have a pretty good amount of freedom as well. I suppose the first question to ./ would be suggestions for free/virtually free (aka cheap) or free trial hosting solutions. I also would love to have suggestions on software that might serve me the best in these various areas. Thanks for any help you can give me in advance!"
