Network Solutions (NSI) is registering every domain name checked throug their WHOIS

I always thought there was something really strange about the WHOIS searches done at Registrars. Specifically the searches would have to be done on their website, a normal "whois" lookup through Linux wouldn't show up registered the next day.
A story is developing regarding domain name registrar Network Solutions front running domains. According to multiple sources on, it appears that domains searched via NSI are being purchased by the registrar thereby preventing a registrant from purchasing it at any other registrar other than NSI. As an example, a random domain which DNN searches such as can be seen in this whois search to now be unavailable to register at other registrars but at NSI it can be purchased

Inside Nvidia’s Testing Facilities

Here's an article from FiringSquad about their trip inside NVIDIA’s Santa Clara campus, which houses many labs and their massive group of grid computers. Good read, images included!
NVIDIA releases a new product, on average, every 6 months. Sometimes sooner, sometimes later. But what goes on behind the scenes to make this happen? Earlier this week, we had the opportunity to find out exactly what happens behind NVIDIA’s closed doors. We were given almost unrestricted access to NVIDIA’s many labs and their high-performance computing center; what we saw was impressive. We were essentially given unfiltered access to see and talk with the people at NVIDIA. The engineers did not have to turn off their monitors when we walked into their labs. We were simply asked to black out any parts of the image that could reveal confidential information. Read More

Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 (1 Terabyte) HDD review

I just picked up a SATAII 500G drive that went for $130CAD, Western Digital. Hitachi use to make drives for IBM, if you ever remember the DeathStar's. It seems that someone forgot to put in some logic within the drive, and have the drive park its heads during idle. It never did this and eventually the heads got so dirty they would scratch the disk. This has all been fixed now, but its a blast from the past when you see "DeskStar" popping up. I remember losing quite a bit of data that summer. I did however recover some by putting the drive in the freezer. :D
Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 (1 Terabyte) HDD review - The terabyte race for consumer desktop hard drives has been on for a long time, now the first generation of drives is here. On April 25th, Hitachi announced that it would begin shipping the Deskstar 7K1000, their latest series of consumer hard drives, weighting in at 750GB and a monstrous 1000GB (1TB). The 1TB version which we are reviewing today is slated at $399, a serious price tag for this colossal amount of storage.

The Deskstar 7K1000 represents a milestone for Hitachi and for the hard drive industry as a whole, as it is the first drive to offer a 1 terabyte capacity. However, Hitachi has not simply grabbed five 200GB platters and stuck them together to create a 1TB hard drive. Rather, there is much more to the Deskstar 7K1000, such as its Serial ATA II interface and the massive 32MB memory buffer. This is also the first desktop Hitachi drive to feature PMR technology (Perpendicular Magnetic Recording).
