Strange coincidences

Best one I had (not electrical though) was when I was travelling on an open road....came to a corner and braked gently.  At that very instant an ad came on the  the radio, for a smash repair place, that started with the squeal of brakes and a collision.  Took me an anxious couple of seconds to realise it was nothing to do with me braking....

Same thing happends when pluggin a rice cooker in the kitchen. A this exact moment lights went down. Woopps

Check the fuse in the flat, they were good, lights were off also on the building.

Crap!!

Ha... no light in all the city.

That was 3 strange minutes. :)

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.
