I finally decided to change system’s default browser from IE to FF. About time, it is.

Dear God, Why Brits?

Filed under: Dev inside!, Funnier, Rant vs Vent — Tanveer Badar @ 8:50 PM

Why do they have to talk about something when they don’t know anything? Just the hype. Just the news they get from CNet/ZD Magazine/w-e. Just the little, tiny bits of information their minds retain.

Case in question:

Moore’s Law in relation to manycore

Today, July 28, 2008, 8 hours ago | noreply@blogger.com (The Moth)Go to full article

When most people’s brains first light up on why parallelism is the next BigThing, some jump to the conclusion that Moore’s law is over. Let’s clear that up below.
All of you know Roger Moore’s law which boils down to the prediction of

"the number of transistors on a chip will double about every two years"

clock speed increases and that is what has tricked most of us to associate Moore’s law with CPU speed.
So, now that chip manufacturers cannot make single CPUs any faster (well, they can, but they can’t cool them down enough to make them useful), they are resorting to having chips with multiple cores, which we are terming the manycore shift. The manycore shift has a profound impact on developers (especially those programming for the desktop client) in that their software now has to learn how to take advantage of parallelism.
So if you followed the logical flow so far, you’ll conclude that Moore’s law is still alive: we are still getting more silicon, but it does not translate to increased linear speed, but rather to parallel "engines" that your software must learn to utilise.
I am glad we cleared that up :)

Please read the funny stream of comments. And a bit unleashing of my own wrath.

I am glad you don’t actually do anything in hardware industry.

First off, it is Gordon Moore not Roger Moore. Get your facts right before you post.

Second, holy parallelism has its own nemesis, the Amdhal’s Law. You cannot go faster than 1/[portion of serial work] even with infinite processors.

Third, the problem isn’t even cooling. They can’t make the a transistor’s channel short enough.

Storm or Strom?

Filed under: Funnier — Tanveer Badar @ 11:23 PM

EarthStorm’s (probably a sucky movie because I don’t like William Baldwin) name is written EarthStrom on HBO. :)

P.S. I should add "sarcastic" to the categories, soon. :) :)

Threat Levels

Filed under: Funnier — Tanveer Badar @ 6:03 PM

[Disclaimer: No intended offense to any English, French, Italian, German, Belgian, Spanish or Aussie reader who happens to come across this post.]

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists themselves have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666.

Also, the French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France’s white flag factory, effectively paralysing the country’s military capability.

It’s not only the English and French that are on a heightened level of alert. Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."

The Germans also increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbour" and "Lose."

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual, and the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels.

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

The Australian’s level has increased from "What the f#ck?" to "Who the f#ck?". The next level for Australia will be "Well, f#ck me" all the way up to "Enough is a f#ckin nuff".
