A new year and a new caption challenge! What's going on in Daniel Guidera's latest cartoon, a new version of a stay-cation? Or perhaps this fellow just can't wait for the week to end. Whatever the reason, tee time seems to have arrived to the lab early. Give us your best shot by adding your caption to the comments field, below. At the end of January, we'll put the best submissions to a vote and the winner will their very own colorized cartoon from Daniel.
Mark, this brings to mind an off-topic episode of a similar nature. Long ago my TV Sales-and-Service boss was called to a customer's home to inspect a fracture of the CRT screen of a brand new TV set. He remarked that it looked very much like a foreign object had been propelled at the screen and thus was not covered by warranty.
Later the customer interrogated his kids. They finally admitted that yes they had been playing hockey in the living room using glass marbles for pucks. Your caption brought that memory back.
Even though Peter the Pro had unprecedented gains in driving distance, the competition committee analysts found that even addressing the ball backwards...with his heels rather than toes...did little to impact ball flight, velocity, or accuracy.
LAB PERSON #1: Since that simulation involved an adaptive DFE, it initialized before the data collection process started
LAB PERSON #2: Yep, that's the traditional way of presenting time-domain simulation output
LAB PERSON #1: And the eye diagram was color-coded to show the probabilities associated with the signal's location within the eye
GOLFER: Dead center in the eye!
LAB PERSON #2: I'd say there's probably a better way to deal with time-domain results
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.
