The plaintext version of text/plain media type is described in RFC 20,

822, 2045, 2046 (4.1 Text Media Type), 2822 and 5322. The precedents
+
for plaintext go back to teleprinting. In the earliest form you cut

ticker tape on space and that multiple spaces are paragraph breaks
+
where you skip a line. This was done later with CRLF and CRLFCRLF by
+
TTY operators. Similar plaintext is also the source code basis of

software.

CMOS CPUs are clocked much faster than thermal limits permit so they

stops and cools down. This means that the CPU can run much faster in

was first used in CMOS mainframes where a valid process will yield for

Linux has the ignore_nice_load feature which stops nice jobs breaking

When you are running stuff like https://boinc.berkeley.edu/ you may not

your apps from being slowed down. You need to give your CPU a chance to

cool down so that your apps can run faster.

Revision as of 13:46, 8 January 2014

The Unprofessional Delegates Networking Session (or UnPDNS) is the exciting event that gets run alongside the Professional Delegates Networking Session. It's for everyone who can't (or don't want to) go to the PDNS.

We took a break in 2013 when running the UnPDNS would have required us to wake up before 7am. Now that the PDNS is back in the evening, we're back for 2014. Woo.

  • When: Thursday night (when the PDNS is on).
  • Where: Site 5, Matilda Bay Reserve, right next to the University. See this map for info.
  • What: A BBQ (to be confirmed). Food will be $5, and we'll be selling various soft drinks. Alcohol is strictly BYO only; selling alcohol is in contravention of Western Australia liquor licensing laws.
