Ed Force One was this morning tethered to a tow truck to be taken for refuelling prior to flying over the Andes to Cordoba for the next show. On moving the steering pin that is part of the mechanism that connects the ground tug to the aircraft seemingly fell out. On making a turn the aircraft had no steering and collided with the ground tug badly damaging the undercarriage, two of the aircrafts engines and injuring two ground tug operators, both of whom have been taken to hospital. We hope of course that they make a full and speedy recovery and we will be closely monitoring their progress. The flight engineers are on site and evaluating the damage, but their initial report is that the engines have suffered large damage and will require an extended period of maintenance and possibly two new engines.
Because third world...

Years later, of course, we know that chickens do work rather well, for certain types of fields.





(Cray was defending his company's use of a small number of large, complex, very fast general-purpose CPUs, as opposed to the then-growing trend towards massive parallism, for what we'd now think of as vector computing. History proved Cray wrong.)

Wrong or not, I can still remember working on the console system (DEC VAX unit) for one of Lockheed's Crays back in the late 80's and feeling somewhat awestruck just to be in its presence.

Well, when you're that prolific and that forward-thinking, you're bound to be wrong occasionally.

And yes, the system architecture of the early Crays was... interesting. The fact that you had to use a whole minicomputer as a terminal interface meant that you basically had the world's most expensive math co-processor.





Also, since I know everyone is dying to build their own fully functional 1:10 scale model Cray 1, here you go: Homebrew Cray-1A

I'm pretty sure theirs was a Cray 2, but my memory could be fading.

This is alleged to be the first functioning prototype of what would become the Creative Labs Soundblaster. (At the time, it was referred to as the "Killer" card.)

Wow, that's something.

I'm surprised it's not even a printed board

My first creative card was a sound blaster pci512





It lasted many years.... I think over a decade going from pc to pc. It was paired with my creative 4.1 speaker setup that I still have and use today.

Now I'm using a asus xonar d1 pci... insane improvement with quality vs the old pci512

I have one of those in my attic in the same box as this



And one of these, cause it made Tribes look cool.


It may be a voodoo2, can't remember exactly, but the box was like that.

Eating lunch at a Thai and sushi place and saw something on the menu that didn't seem very culturally sensitive.

I guess ordering the Agent Orange Chicken would also be frowned upon?
