@max: "...Little Green Sprout":

Well, that sounds like a perfect description of the typical Brussels one.... IIRC, his head bore a strong resemblence to one!

@mhrackin: ...wasn't the Jolly Green Giant's sidekick a little "kid" vegetable named "Sprout"?

I think his full name was "Little Green Sprout"

Re The Sprout: wasn't the Jolly Green Giant's sidekick a little "kid" vegetable named "Sprout"?  Nobody brought that up on the Sprout blog IIRC!

@mhrackin: It may be time to start resuscitating the Mighty Sprout as well.

All Hail The Mighty Sprout!

@mhrackin: I have thought about starting a soft-serve ice cream place and naming it "Custard's Last Stand."

Good one! I still remember seeing a frozen custard place down at Gulf Shores -- the sign outside proclaimed "So good your tongue will slap your forehead" ... and it was pretty darned good!

Well, now that Parker Bros. has "updated" Monopoly by repacing the Iron token, perhaps it's time to update Clue so there would be a "Col. Custard" character!  I have thought about starting a soft-serve ice cream place and naming it "Custard's Last Stand."

Just further confirmation of my theory that food is the basis for blog popularity!  It may be time to start resuscitating the Mighty Sprout as well.

When i was a child my mom bought us imitation ice milk instead of ice cream. I was young and ignorant at the time so I didn't know the difference.

I also didn't know the difference between margarine and butter.

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 todayís commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
