An offer to tempory fix the server problems. Watch
512MB of ram? I'd have expected far more.
I think your Yahoo! comparison is frivolous; a supercomputer in the 90s certainly would have been more powerful than the server UK-L is running on currently. Besides, I'd be surprised if Yahoo! was ever run on a single computer.
Yeah true, maybe it was 1GB it has upgraded to, I can't remember now.
My desktop machine has 512MB RAM. However it is still a lot since an average server in yester had 16mb ram!
I think it was 1GB the server now has. I'm tired and confusing myself now.
remember servers are usually more powerful than desktop machines, and have more ram on average.
I disagree, I reckon you'd still need a cluster to match it even these days.
Can't be arsed to dig out the MFlops stats Depends what supercomputers we're talking about anyway. Surely not a top-end one. You can get supercomputer-ish performance out of a cluster of 8 top notch workstations/servers.
isnt that the biggest/most powerful "supercomputer" now?
Don't know but probably now that I come to think of it. Looks too geeky for me though, I'd rather have women on my screensaver
Ah but I'm only on diallup at the moment so need to keep as much bandwidth free as I can
