We have a winner for the January caption contest! The tie is now broken and our winner is .... jkdrum, who received 24% of votes with his Dangerfield-esque caption, "Iím sick of this! First Dave gets a BarcaLounger, now he is playing Golf!
Meanwhile, last month, they completely throw me to the sharks! I get no respect!"
There is still a tie for the second-favorite caption, with JOtt and eganon both receiving 19% of the votes.
I'd like to once again send out a "thank you" to the always-helpful David Ashton for jumping in to narrow the captions to our final 10% for voting.
jkdrum will receive a color print of the January cartoon with his winning caption in place. And the celebrity "Caption Captain" to narrow down the February cartoon captions will be our very own Max the Magnificent.
The March cartoon is on the site, so head on over to put your caption in place.
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.
