Nice thought -- but I really do need to get rid of the ones that don't fit (which is 90% these days) -- rather than them sitting in my closet, someone else could be enjoying them (there are some really nice ones)

I just wish I'd discarded the old shirts before everything crashed around my ears

Clearly he doesn't need to get rid of shirts, he just needs a stronger closet rod to hang them on.

Is that a Griffith crack or a Griffin crack? The loud bang was probably caused by too much 'loud' in the closet. Years ago, some professor was talking about implant access to mega-computers, and he asked, "What would happen if we had the equivalent of 100 years of thought in every decision we make?" I replied, "No more Hawaiian shirts?" And yes, I was wearing one at the time.

Look up "Griffith crack length". That'll explain it. Basically, a crack can slowly creep and get longer over an indefinite period, but once it reches a critical length, it sprints all the way to breaking point.

There's a message in this, but I'll be damned if I can figure it out!

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.
