reading guitar tabs

They have some good tabs there (metallica, black sabbath)
guide from mxtabs

Friday, October 28, 2005

One day one colleague told me about mixing
"get on top" and "fade to black" from metallica (seems that both had same rhythm)
Don't know who sang "get on top" , Just google it :)
I think is Red Hot Chili Peppers but not so sure about it.
Sound of both melodies was good (run them in the same time)

VMX,or cell coprocessor for AMD cpus ?
It could be something like that (make sense from one point of view)

Source arstechica

"Ultimately, a new set of ISA extensions with a flashy name and a special logo program are going to be just one marketing weapon among many in the next phase of the war with Intel. AMD has established itself as the current CPU vendor of choice for tech savvy gamers, and a set of 3D-oriented ISA extensions that have some level of game studio support will help them reinforce that image in the face of Conroe."

"Intel has ripped open another huge hole on the troubled ship Itanic, saying that the dual-core Montecito chip won't arrive until mid-2006 and will come in much slower than expected."

UbuntuBugHuntingDay

"Breezy is now out and everybody has celebrated its release. You have, haven't you? Before we all start our now journey to an unknown destination, we need to clean up a bit all the dust everywhere. And the place with the most dust is probably our bug tracking systems. So we shall have a Bug Day.

The Hug Day. This is a very special Bug Day: on Hug Day, when someone closes a bug, then someone else should hug him/her. Why? This is a very special way for us to tell everyone that we love contributions! And triaging bugs is a really big contribution."

I like it :Hug Day

"How many is a brazillion?"

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing. He
concludes by saying: "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed."
"OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!" His staff sits
stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the
President sits, head in hands. Finally, the President looks up and
asks, "How many is a brazillion?"

stripe for speed (swap)

The kernel itself can stripe swapping on several devices, if you just give them the same priority in the /etc/fstab file.

No money in the sack
