Re: For Wayne...

I'm not a real doofus, but I play one at a national laboratory. (

Thanks, I enjoyed them, even if it did take me 2 days to get around to saying
so. It's those pesky users' fault, of course. Griping that they can't use
their hot new Alphas because of silly little details like the 1/4 TeraByte of
disks' not being connected and mounted yet. Picky, picky, picky.

BTW, I tested the Seagate Elite 23 over the weekend. Yep, 23 GigaBytes in a
5-1/4" box. I filled it up 30 times or so, and it worked just fine. May be
the last of the 5-1/4s (there are rumors of an Elite 45), but it's hard to say.
We also just got in 18 9GB 3-1/2" drives. Not the 10,000 RPM jobs, though.
Maybe only 5400, or 7200 at best. You know, the cheap ones.

The Trib has a nice fluffy piece on the Lab today, even if they can't get their
units right. We sit on 6800 *acres*, not square miles.

The powers that be also got some pretty new pages set up.

The Science of Particle Physics "tour" has some interesting discussions. If
you're interested, of course, and vice versa.

They even whipped out an applet to show p-bar/p collisions.

Well, coffee break's over.
