Would like to hear if folks are at all worried about the newly discovered "Row Hammer" failures. Here are two links. http://www.futureplus.com/images/FS2800/The%20Known%20Failure%20Mechanism%20in%20DDR3%20memory%20called%20Row%20Hammer.pdf
and an excellent study by CMU https://www.ece.cmu.edu/~safari/pubs/kim-isca14.pdf
For these surveys of common topics. Sometimes I miss one and having a collection like this allows me to double check. Wish we had more of these. Maybe a monthly 'best of' would be useful in all the topic areas...
