Models of Parallel Processing

Posted 10-07-2011 at 08:38 PM by DJ Shaji

Although the human brain works in a similar manner to popular technology - in that it can only process one instruction at a time, it differs starkly from contemporary technology in that the brain itself is divided into thousands of millions of tiny networked processing units, which are specialized to perform a single function, which enable us to perform amazing tasks of pattern recognition and cognitive ability that would otherwise be rendered impossible. There are multiple ways to accomplish this...

Old buildroot

Posted 10-07-2011 at 12:54 PM by ButterflyMelissa

Buildroot has been suggested here before. I downloaded it already and was looking for a tutorial. Well, I found one.

Next, why not try buildroot to set up something?

The question some will ask is: why?
The answer: to get (back) to the essence of Linux: Open Source.

A script is born

Posted 10-07-2011 at 12:00 PM by ButterflyMelissa noted in a previous post, all stuff can be a Bash script.

Wow, never did that my first one is ... totally out of style? I know. Yes, it is, I admit

So far, it preps the disk, sets up networking, downloads and installs ... one package, but it's a proof of concept...

Next, I need to make it a bit more "pretty" and add the packages in there, and in the right order. This means hunting down the depencencies,...

Posted 10-07-2011 at 11:42 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

During the summer of 2010 I had a nerve-wracking interview with Google. It was fun, mind you, but it was stressful. I passed the phone screenings with flying colors, flew to the west coast, underwent a grueling all day interview, and flew home confident I'd impressed them. Then I got the call saying they weren't moving forward with me. I was really bummed, but the timing just wasn't right. "It wasn't meant to be", everyone told me..."Your time is coming", they said.

"no virus" != "secure"

Posted 10-05-2011 at 12:43 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 01-14-2012 at 12:21 PM by rocket357 (spellcheck fail)

This seems to pop up a lot lately in Linux and Mac circles...

The presence of viruses for a particular platform does indeed point to security issues. However, supposing the reverse to be true in all manners is a logical fallacy (Denying the antecedent, for those interested in philosophy). It goes like this: "If a platform has viruses, it is insecure. Linux does not have viruses, so it is not insecure."

The problem with this logic is that viruses, while...
