In desperation, I asked for help. Eric McCartney over at Prominic took some pity on me and started looking at the system. After doing all the usual swaps and tests, there were no obvious issues.
Finally, Eric loaded up a neat little program called sys_basher, which exercises all the elements of the system…hard. It puts the machine under a strong load and if something can’t handle the load, it’ll die. Quickly.
As it turned out, the problem was a hard drive. The weird thing is, we hadn’t allocated the hard drive in the Linux environment yet. It was simply plugged in, awaiting configuration. But, when that hard drive was plugged in, sys_basher would take the system down almost instantly. When the hard drive was unplugged, the system would run rock solid.
Look closely. This isn’t your dad’s rabbit-duck illusion.

Air travelers will eventually be able to keep their shoes on to pass through security, but the restrictions on carrying liquids on board are likely to remain in place for some time, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told a POLITICO Playbook breakfast Tuesday.
“We are moving towards an intelligence and risk-based approach to how we screen,” Napolitano told Mike Allen during a morning forum at the Newseum. “I think one of the first things you will see over time is the ability to keep your shoes on. One of the last things you will [see] is the reduction or limitation on liquids.”
When Simon Glik recorded Suffolk County police doing something they shouldn’t, he was threatened and ultimately arrested by a crackpot cop who boasted, “I’ve been doing this for thirty years and there’s nothing you can hold over my head.” The result of his legal troubles? A federal court ruling that videotaping police is an unambiguous and constitutionally protected right.
Cornell Creative Machines Lab wanted to see what would happen if two Cleverbot AI ChatBots had a conversation with each other.
I think I’ve just seen the beginning of the end.
Jim Ottaviani and Leland Myrick’s Feynman is an affectionate and inspiring comic biography of the legendary iconoclastic physicist Richard Feynman. I’ve reviewed Ottaviani before (I really liked T-Minus, a history of the Apollo program, as well as his Dignifying Science: Stories About Women Scientists) and I expected great things from Feynman. I wasn’t disappointed.
Feynman is primarily concerned with its subject’s life, his personal relationships, his career triumphs, his mistakes and misgivings. From his work on the Trinity project to the Feynman lectures to his Nobel for his theory of Quantum Electrodynamics, Feynman paints a picture of a caring, driven, intelligent, wildly creative scientist who didn’t always think through his actions and sometimes made himself pretty miserable as a result. But the Feynman in this book is resilient and upbeat, and figures out how to bounce back from the worst of life.
Feynman’s technical achievements are mighty, but very few people understand them (Feynman claimed that he didn’t understand them). But the way he conducted his life was often an inspiration. The authors even manage to wring sweetness from his tragic romance with his first wife, Arline, who contracted terminal tuberculosis before they married, meaning that their marriage was conducted without any intimate physical contact lest he catch her sickness, but for all that, they clearly loved each other enormously and made one another’s life better.
You may now run unsigned code on any xbox. Discovered by GliGli, the exploit requires a chip, but works on any 360: “it sends little pulses to the processor in order to destabilize the console and make it believe a modified CB is correctly hashed and signed. This operation doesn’t succeed every time, but it is repeated till it works.”
Time Warner, gigantic media conglomerate and parent of Warner Brothers, owns the rights to the Guy Fawkes mask design from the 2006 Warner Brothers film “V for Vendetta.” So, every time you purchase one of those masks, they are paid a licensing fee. Nick Bilton in the New York Times has more.
Robert Arthur is the author of an unusual and fascinating book called You Will Die: The Burden of Modern Taboos. He also has a blog called Narco Polo that he posts to very infrequently. His single panel comics are like a Ripley’s Believe it or Not of human folly.
In 2010 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the same town of Hogan Jr.’s robbery, a woman was charged with stealing $68,500 from her employer “to fuel her addiction to scratch-off lottery tickets.” There was no response by Congress to outlaw state-run lotteries. Note: The amount of money online poker sites take from players (the rake) is usually around 1-5% of the money played. The amount of money state-run lotteries took from players in 2006 was 35% of the money played.Costly Hypocrisy:
America’s hypocrisy of allowing domestic online lotteries and horse betting, but not allowing foreign poker sites was found by the World Trade Organization to be in violation of its international trade agreements. Because of this the US had to settle complaints by Japan, Europe, and Canada. The settlements were not made public on the ridiculous basis of “national security interests,” but they are believed to be in the tens of billions of dollars.
Yesterday I spotted Bisou, a new Libyan restaurant, which opened earlier this year here in Pittsburgh. At Reddit, Val_Holla reports that the proprietor claims no knowledge of his logo’s origin, which may in turn indicate that he is a master troll. Here is the menu.
Boris Smus’ idea for a minimalist business card is brilliant—so long as you’re old enough to have your own name’s domain, but young enough have its Twitter handle!
If I actually did this, it would have to have a watermark that said “Oh my God, it even has a watermark.”
American tastes are too complex to diagnose conclusively, but analysts think the ascendance of Greek yogurt is a case of conspicuous consumption (literally) led by women in the workplace. One theory holds that rich old women in affluent coastal cities are leading the trend that’s making Greek yogurt an aspirational product — So foreign! So classy! — even if the health benefits are dubious:
The rise of Greek yogurt in the U.S. reflects a larger change in the American culinary consciousness: a desire for foods that are considered purer, simpler, and more natural–in other words, not yogurts purporting to taste like key lime pie or strawberry cheesecake.
I want to suggest another idea. The opposite idea. Perhaps people are buying Greek yogurt, not despite the fact that it’s expensive compared to yogurts, but because it’s cheap compared to similarly filling foods. The taste of Greek yogurt is thick, like scooping avocado out of its skin. Sometimes I eat it for breakfast. I couldn’t eat fruit-on-the-bottom Dannon yogurt for breakfast, because that stuff can have the consistency of melted ice cream and after I eat a cup, I feel like I’ve had a big glass of water, not a snack.
Reports are circulating that databases containing BART police officer information from the website for The Bay Area Rapid Transit Police Officers’ Association site have been published. The bartpoa.com site is currently down. Who is responsible for the hack? Whoever ends up claiming credit, it’s complicated. What isn’t complicated: the notion that storing officers’ email passwords and home addreses in plain text on a public-facing network is dumb.
