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.

MySQL, Thread Caching, Linux and a busy site!

Heres an article that helped me with an issue over at a friends site http://www.ftatalk.com Their site was exploding and they need to tune out the current server as much as possible.

Flock 0.9 lands gracefully

I remember first hearing about flock. I actually got a version of it when it was just skinned to look different than FireFox. I didn't expect the project to get this far. Give it a wirl, looks to be promising.
Flock 0.9 lands gracefully -

The Flock project has been building a "social Web browser" since 2005. The upcoming Flock 0.9 release adds new blogging features, integrates media streams into the browser, and includes an overhaul of the Flock bookmark system. It's not perfect yet, but Flock 0.9 is a big leap forward.
