[CoLoCo] Ubuntu-us-co Digest, Vol 20, Issue 19

Thank you for the clarification on the lpci.  I was under the impression
that a person needed the lpic-1 before the lpci-2.   If it is the case
where I can get 2 before 1 that will be the area that I focus on.  More
shops have linux in the computer room than on the work floor.

This is not to say that no system admin stuff will be in the LPIC-1 cert, but that which remains will tend to be local system administration.  The tests are also being updated for newer technologies, so printing will no longer test about printcap, but instead will focus on cups.

It would be great to get together and study as a group; however the earliest that I could even begin studying for the exams would be some time in April, so that may exclude me from the group if you guys are ready to start right now.

> > The Sony PlayStation 3<http://www.us.playstation.com/PS3> has a number of unique features that make it particularly suited for scientific computation. First, the PS3 is an open platform<http://www.playstation.com/ps3-openplatform/>, which essentially means that one can run a different system software on it, for example PowerPC Linux<http://www.terrasoftsolutions.com/products/sony/>. Next, it has a revolutionary processor called the Cell processor<http://www.research.ibm.com/cell/> which was developed by Sony, IBM and Toshiba. This processor has a main CPU (called the PPU) and several (six for the PS3) special compute engines (called SPUs) available for raw computation. Moreover, each SPU performs vector operations, which implies that they can compute on multiple data, in a single step. Finally, its incredibly low cost make it very attractive as a scientific computing node i.e. part of a cluster. In fact, its highly plausible that the raw computing power per dollar that the PS3 offers, is significantly higher than anything else on the market today!"
