Google, Intel and Sun save the world!
Or something like that
Radio Reg Welcome to Episode 8 of Semi-Coherent Computing - the savior edition.
Yes, this week's show has Sun Microsystems software engineer Bryan Cantrill talk about the role that DTrace plays in saving servers and applications gone wrong. Cantrill explains some of the basics around how DTrace helps with system tuning. In addition, he also hits on how IBM and the Linux set have reacted to Sun's flashy Solaris tool.
Along the way, I try to coax a few details out of Cantrill about Sun's upcoming Fishworks project.
Part two of the show brings us to Allyson Klein, who is a server and software exec at Intel and also one of the company's leading forces behind Climate Savers. Intel and Google announced Climate Savers in June. The project centers on buying and sell more efficient power supplies and improving the usage of power management software on PCs.
Klein tells us how and why Intel and Google came together for this project. She also updates us on the progress of the group.
The legendary Dave Patterson will be on an upcoming show. Send any questions you have for Patterson to hardware @ theregister.com.
Thanks for your ears. ®
Believe me, if you've ever seen Bryan Cantrill do a presentation you'll know that even audio doesn't do him justice, no way do you want just a boring transcript...
A hearty Fuck you on a Sunny Indian Saturday... What a way to start the day.
I already feel energised. Now gimme some Paris Hilton please ;)
No Transcripts PUHLEEZ. The Mumbo Jumbo is already fueled by Vendor Centric views which MUST be avoided at all costs. Since charity begins at home, i am planning to go deaf starting monday.
Grammar Nazis don't do a spell check. Neither do dyslexics
Re: @ Ashlee
So you're volunteering to do the transcripts?
So I guess it's a hearty "fuck you" to deaf people then? Sounds about right coming from the Reg I guess. Who needs physically handicapped people knowing more about technology or what's happening after all.
Hey, I know, why don't you make the website with a red background and green text, that gets rid of the most common colour blindness sufferers. You could also force the text to be really really small (post as an un-resizable image or something) to get rid of those with other eyesight issues. I don't know, be creative! Lots of stuff you could do really to get rid of the annoying "handicapped" crowd and their constant bleating for accessibility.
Re: transcripts and monitors
We're not doing transcripts for the moment, mate. And I doubt we ever will.
We write quite a bit about most of the topic covered in the shows, and, well, audio suits some people and doesn't suit others.
