Google Sparking Interest To Quantum Mechanics With Minecraft

z4ckpete Re:educational potential (71 comments)

The redpower mod is how I learned how gates work and how they're combined to make RAM, adders, etc. I even made a simple calculator (which is not something I thought I'd have the attention span to do.)

MS, Intel "Goofed Up" Win 7 XP Virtualization

z4ckpete Re:How to figure it out (315 comments)

echo -n "Does my cpu support virtualizaiton? "; if `cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -q svm || cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -q vmx`; then echo Yes; else echo No; fi

This is even easier:

echo -n "Does my cpu support virtualizaiton? "; if `cat /proc/cpuinfo | egrep -q '(svm|vmx)'`; then echo Yes; else echo No; fi

even easier: echo 'Does my cpu support virtualization? Yes' (only works sometimes)
