Peg Game (solitaire)

I was just thinking about this game a couple days back.  Wondered if I would remember how to do it...


Apparently I do!

It's all Bullshit

Cow Manure to power a datacenter - now that's bullshit. But a type of bullshit I could get behind.

HP today presented new research from HP Labs, the company’s central research arm, showing how the manure output of cows and the heat output of data centers can be combined to create an economically and environmentally sustainable operation.


Of course, it's a research paper, not an actual data center powered by actual manure. I'd be much more impressed if they'd actually gone out and got their hands dirty and generated some actual power before they started bragging about it.
