I’ve avoided posting videos of people shooting the iPhone with bullets, dropping iPhones into squirrel pens, and ingesting and then excreting iPhones because I think such videos are wasteful and pointless.
The kerfuffle over radio shock-jock Alan Jones suggesting that “laser” technology is better than the fibre-based NBN over which the “lasers” would actually run on shows that while some people love to bash Alan Jones, the NBN is still an expensive white elephant.
According to important research performed by Australian, American, Iranian, and Chinese scientists, controlled fusion power to generate abundant electricity may be attained with the use of ultra-high power lasers and a fuel source of hydrogen and boron-11.
I'm building AMD APU based desktop for my folks and I need efficient 250-350w ATX PSU for it. Especially I would like it to be efficient on low loads since it will be mostly idling and when you have APU, couple of RAM sticks and one SSD inside it won't use more than 30-40w when idling.
I have 1 physical machine with 2 VMs (VMWare esxi) - one for database (PostgreSQL 9.2.1), and one for application. I'd like my application to connect to my database in an efficient way, and I've heard that using a file system socket is more efficient than a network socket (TCP overhead, IIRC).
Is there a way to use a file system socket with the aforementioned setup?
