I'm ashamed to say that I have the DVD, but I haven't watched it yet (so many things to do, so little time to do them all) -- do you recommend it?

Speaking of prawns, did you see that great South African sci-fi movie "District 9" (the aliens are referred to as prawns"? It does get even better if you have knowledge of SA.

@Antedeluvian: "I just knew that would put a ripple in the space-time continuum." So that's what it was -- thank goodness -- I thought I'd eaten a bad prawn :-)

Well we could only invite him to meetings on hot summer afternoons, and just look the other way while he pours the lemonade in.... ;-) An engineer who does not drink beer is one thing. A Zimbabwean who does not drink beer is altogether a horse of a different colour, however, I'm not sure what to do about that....

Fortunately (especially for you) we are a very forgiving organization ... especially after we've blown the froth off the top of a few cold beers :-)

"Are saying that you think mixing beer with Sprite and Ginger Ale is a good idea?" I crave the TWAOFB's indulgence and apologise for my perfidy profusely. I am not saying it is a good idea, merely acceptable. I might add that I have known colonials that used American Champagne (Coca Cola) as the mixer of choice. There I've committed heresy- start warming the barrel.

@David: "How do you become an engineer without drinking beer?" There are some questions that should not be asked because the human mind is simply not capable of rationalizing concepts of this level of depravity...

@Antedeluvian: "However the mixture of lemonade and beer (a Shandy to the colonials) served at a temperature where the ice crystals are forming is absolutley perfect on a hot afternoon. And the froth is even thicker!" So am I to take it that -- despite what you said before -- in fact you DO drink beer so long as it is diluted with lemonade (the English kind, of course ... not what the Americans laughingly think of as lemonade" @Antedeluvian: "Too bad there is no fizzy lemonade in this neck of the woods. Sprite and Ginger Ale are acceptable substitutes." I'm sorry? Are saying that you think mixing beer with Sprite and Ginger Ale is a good idea? I must warn you, Sir, that as liberal an organization as The Worshipful Ancient Order of Froth Blowers is known to be (we are famous for it in fact), your words are difficult to swallow (almost as difficult as the concoction of which you speak). You are coming perilously close to volunteering yourself as the star of the show for the first annual "Tar and Feathering" party ... even worse, you will be obliged to cover all of the expenses :-)

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
