Since it's so cheap it will be very easy to build a cluster of this little things and start computing in prarallel. Since I'm also attending Udacity CS 101, where you learn to build your own search engine, I'm dreaming about a data center full of raspberry pi's crawling the web :)

Hi!

I am currently attending Udacity CS101 also and am picking up a raspberry pie! Let me know if you want to collaborate on something like this for fun or maybe for a project for the class

adobe reinvented minecraft? :)

sounds like "minority report" to me, in the light of the events in norway.

no, you're wrong. the spiral-like patterns are the sleep cycles that gets disrupted by staying up late and waking up late in the day. The holiday are the periods that's all gray -> days with no connect in august

-----


He kinda did say that. And yes, those all gray areas are vacations.

-----


The spirals are called "Synchronous DSPS", as I recently found out. I've been sleeping like that for about 10 years.

There's some similar charts here: http://www.supermemo.com/articles/sleepchart.htm

I wonder if google will ever include PHP into Google App Engine ..

-----


There's an implementation of PHP on the JVM Quercus: http://www.caucho.com/resin-3.0/quercus/

Presumably, you could run it now...

-----


See http://phpwithjava.appspot.com/info.php

-----


beautiful ! now ... can you put a link up there on the ... erm ... menu bar ?

-----


The implementation can't be that hard ... come on ... it's about doing some query on the database.

-----


That is really not the case. Search is a hard problem.

-----


After all, what is search, really, except to look for things that are already inside of us?

-----


In general, yes. In news.yc's case, no.

-----


I must disagree in this case.

-----


that's what I was reffering to when I wrote "search with google and site:news.ycombinator.com"

-----


Heh, from your commend I understand that you find windows obsolete the next product cycle :))

-----


Why don't you use WAMP instead of LAMP ? http://www.wampserver.com/en/

-----


I thought about that.

I'm not opposed to going with WAMP. It's just out of everything that's stuffed into Windows, I only need a very small subset. With an imaged LAMP, I can copy and scale very easily. I guess I'd rather have 20 boxes whose CPUs were only the doing the few things I care about than all the other stuff that goes with Windows -- patches, updates, Active Directory, Kerebos, etc.

But no, I'm not ruling WAMP out. I was curious to see what kind of learning curve we're talking about moving from a windows to a LAMP environment. A couple of months ago, I downloaded a LAMP vritual appliance, but didn't have a good grasp on how to do even some very simple things.
