The essential guide to IT transformation

Thanks to JC's for pointing us to this most interesting piece on Real World Technologies, which suggests that the Katmai core from Intel is set to burst through the turf in the cemetery and come back from the dead. You may recall a similar thing happened earlier this year with Intel's Pentium II. You can't put this core down, it seems. If Katmai has, indeed, re-appeared, it is a further sign of desperation on the part of Intel. You don't shift a fabrication process to a new fabrication process by going backwards. Amazing. Over at Frosty Tech, the boys have built themselves a great big whoppa of a coppa heatsink to make things go that ever so much fasta. At Ace's Hardware there's a piece about Linux running on that admirable microprocessor from Alpha, for which NT is sadly unavailable any more. At Tom's Hardware, there is an article explaining some strangenesses occurred when using KX-133 chipset based mother boards with Microsoft Windows 2000. There's coverage of networking using the Internet at Ars Technica.
