memories of the past: BitSavers.org just added a whole bunch CRAY documents

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/05/16

Nobody but very wealthy research institutions could afford CRAY machines.

They were the computing workhorse of their time. Now your smartphone is faster (:

BitSavers just added a bunch of CRAY documentation of the 1980s and early 1990s.

Great questions from Iris “Asking a ‘stupid’ question, every day for 365 days”

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/05/16

For 10 months ago, Iris started Asking a ‘stupid’ question, every day for 365 days.

Virtually all of them very valid questions that remind me of various stages in my software career, and will remind me during the stages still to come.

Her motto is “there is no such thing as a stupid question”.

I agree, and would go even further: keep the questions coming every day of your life, as it is the only way of learning.

Recommended reading!
