My worst travel nightmare was during last year's Icelandic ash cloud saga. Stuck in Germany, it took me 48 hours to get back home in the UK, and I used trains, taxis and a boat trip for that!!

My manager wasn't too bad about it, and the delay could have happened on any airline. The common theme in all the Travel Nightmare stories is that there almost always turns out to be something positive in them, a silver lining to the cloud. In my case it was seeing somewhere new and the Moule Marinieres...in max's case he got the job...etc

Don't go early and don't be late! Let me blame everyone else, since I'm the manager. Where's Professor Peabody and the Wayback Machine when you really need him?

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.
