Liquid-Cooled Supercomputers, to Trim the Power Bill
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/12/business/international/improving-energy-efficiency-in-supercomputers.html?_r=0

(Really of interest to IT folks and geeks only, not for the average home user)

Interesting the name of the super computer "The computer, called Tsubame KFC" and it is "submerged in a tank of mineral oil" So is this new branch of KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) also doing fried chicken to go :)

Would be a good synergy effect. ;D

Probably a bit wet at the moment, a few tons of water went through the bedroom windows. 

It is at Chiswell http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-26150788

Agreed.   Due to a human phenomena known as pareidolia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pareidolia there is a lot to be seen in the cloud structure.  I see a penguin, sphinx, and a horse's mouth with teeth.  Also an UFO?

Also, doubt the pileus cloud actually disappeared, but was no longer visible as the sun angle dropped down as the sun set, and the refracted light no longer could be seen, as in a rainbow, so it is transient in nature and only seen under the right circumstances.  Could be much more common because of that.  Whatever it is, there is a lot of energy visibly being displayed as the cloud is morphing into a thunderhead.

It's a good site.   ;D

Symantec fires CEO, appoints interim replacement

The company might also split itself up, spinning off either its security or its backup and recovery business and focusing on just one of them, Holland said. Integrating an acquired company into the current sprawling organization would be a challenge, he said.
