This is BRILLIANT -- I'm laughing out loud (I loved the "Close the door" bit close to the beginning...

Of course all the Supermarionation was big down under. A comedy show sent up the thunderbirds in it. Of course the great YouTube provider has a link to it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZC4frcXimz4

I loved UFO! I even watched the series more than once in rerun. I loved those British babes - totally hot and unquestionably competent! It was interesting when the 1980s actually came.... I never got into Space 1999. It was just too lame.

I'm planning a future column on programs like Space 1999... Can you think of any others of this ilk?

Reg Hill, Desmond Saunders and the Andersons also went on to produce the live-action series U.F.O. and Space:1999.

I must disagree; the miniature work in the Supermarionation series is still mind-bogglingly good, and puts most CGI to shame.

Nope, I leave FPGAs to others :-) I'm an RF/microwave/EM/MMIC/antenna type (although I confess to some embedded stuff, to poke bits into the RF stuff...) I do Planet Analog, though!

I must admit that I had forgotten about the gnome :-) Have you joined www.AllProgrammablePlanet.com yet?

If there were ever any doubts...the garden gnome's sign saying, "GO!" removed any and all :-)

I've seen all the early Wallace and Gromits -- I LOVE that Thunderbirds take-off scene of which you speak -- Max

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.
