"Grid Confinement" - A Physicist perspective

The following post should not be taken too seriously! If Grid Computing is so good but what we see practically is a complete chaos in the Data Center then there must exist an Anti-Grid that cancels all its benefits. If one tries to make an order and to split the Data Center into two separate sites then immediately Grid - Anti-Grid pairs are produced out of the vacuum and chaos is being restored.

Social Networks and Grid Computing - Some similarities

Mounting a memory stick under Linux

A short reminder for myself and for all those who are lost when no auto mount works: 1. Verify that the device is recognized in 'dmesg', write down the device name. e.g. /dev/sdb 2. mkdir /disk_on_key 3. mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /disk_on_key 4. at the end un-mount by: umount /disk_on_key Good luck!
