Re: See you on the other side
I start on Sept. 2, mate. So, guess it depends on fast I type.

I'll use this comment as a jumping off point for a note on Ted's stories.
Lots of you are griping about his language. I'm rejecting almost all of those comments. Save yourself some time and write something constructive. It might get published.
Please don't torture yourself by reading the stories if "bad" language offends you. Otherwise, just relax and enjoy the ride.
Power4 was dual-core and arrived at about the same time Afara was working on eight-core chips.
I certainly consider Sun the leader in the multi-core era, as it was the first mainstream vendor with a very, very aggressive design thanks to Afara.
If you want to count dual-cores as multi-core, so be it.
I knew this was coming and, as editor of the story, will address now to stop a flurry of comments.
As I see it, computing is often used as a noun as well. High performance computing being on example. Business computing being another.
Perhaps I have gone too far, but am sticking with it for the time being.
Yeah, that's exactly what I asked Seybold, regarding the local storage and apparently missing iTunes for Linux. I dunno. He had some weird smile when he answered the question. The only thing I can guess is some cloud like thing where you're storing the songs somewhere else, but I can't imagine why Apple would agree to that or why anyone would want it.
That is the same RB, as far as I know.
It seems pretty in keeping with The Register's style to allow for difference of opinion on something between our reporters. (RB is only an occasional contributor.)
That said, the barbs in the comment section don't strike me as the most productive or civil way to go about things.
Do my homework? How dare you!
I drank my way out of college specifically to avoid that.
But even with my booze addled brain, I can see that this is not IBM ordering some SKU from Taiwan's finest. Living, breathing engineers were involved here. I've talked to them.
If you look at the case, you can see that they save on fans and power units at the very least. It's also half the size of anything Dell can offer, which, as mentioned, affords some unique data center rearrangement.
Dell's Cloud program does have the variety of motherboards and liquid cooling available, but I think you're kidding yourself if you think that equals this box.
Back to the Jack. Burp.
Mmm, Google does hire evangelists. Jeremy Allison, of Samba fame, was hired as a "Linux evangelist" for example.
There is quite a bit of bias in Google's results. Ever noticed how Wikipedia crawls to the top on so many searches? PageRank is bias.
Regrettably, clipping is real tough to fix in post production - at least with my skills.
The big problem was a software crash with the main copy, which made me use the back-up that's connected to the mixer. Sadly, I obviously had the levels set too high on the back-up machine.
Am rather inexperienced with this audio stuff, so if anyone has suggestions on fixing clipping in post, please send them along.
My sincere apologies on this one.
I'm going to hit all three of these comments in one go.
Anonymous - please relax. Two of the people make open source software. I use it - a lot - and have an Ubuntu laptop, as we've discussed in the past. Think you should hit a valium before something serious happens.
Joke boy - no idea what you're talking about.
Pie person - I'm a fella and can cook, but that's Matt's pie recipe. I believe he's a man.
Mmmm, their profits actually increased since they've been giving away Player. Their rate of revenue growth is now predicted to slow, which is certainly a factor of the company's size. I think the bigger deal is how quickly VMware will move from around 90 percent growth to 50ish percent. Few people expected such a drop so quickly.
That's an innocuous post? I'd have thought a $18bn company changing its entire business model rather noccuous.
The point is that Brian doesn't say Sun will move the shared network.com service it offers today. In fact, he says, in as far as he says anything, rather the opposite - that Sun will have no systems left to offer such a service. He never explains where internal Sun IT ends and outward facing Sun begins with this plan.
Since he's talking about his company's entire business changing, you'd think one or two details might help. Awful lot of coverage on his first post for it to be called innocuous.
