Samurai Jack

Samurai Jack - Season 1

The twins just started watching this. I have four seasons on DVD. Haven't watch 2 of them yet. Now I find out Cartoon Network is replaying them again. While I can embed other cartoons, for some reason I can only link to this one.

Coding Horror: Should All Developers Have Manycore CPUs?

Coding Horror: Should All Developers Have Manycore CPUs?: "Here's the second part of the answer I promised you earlier. The one you might not like. Most developers aren't writing desktop applications today. They're writing web applications. Many of them may be writing in scripting languages that aren't compiled, but interpreted, like Ruby or Python or PHP. Heck, they're probably not even threaded. And yet this code somehow achieves massive levels of concurrency, scales to huge workloads, and drives some of the largest websites on the internet. All that, without thinking one iota about concurrency, threading, or reentrancy. It's sort of magical, if you think about it."

Read the entire article. It is a fairly accurate view in my opinion. However, and some of the comments point this out, while one application may not use all the cores, the other cores can be used for other applications.

Techdirt: Your Electric Vehicle Is Too Quiet; Congress May Force It To Be Louder

I am easily amused tonight. Read the blog post to see what the comment below is related too. :)

Techdirt: Your Electric Vehicle Is Too Quiet; Congress May Force It To Be Louder: "#
Only if I get to choose the sound.. by Ajax 4Hire on Apr 14th, 2008 @ 2:25pm

The new ringtone;
download a new cartone for your EV (Electric Vehicle).

Transformer transforming sound would also be cool ringtone.
If I have to submit a sound for my EV then I should at least be able to pick the sound; blowing rasberries, WrapSong...
I like the Jetson sound also.

Next is a Shania Twain skin for your EV.

I love technology."
