In an underground bunker 100 feet beneath Stockholm lies a unique facility operated by the Swedish ISP Bahnof. It’s become known as the “James Bond Villain Data Center”. Dean Nelson of Data Center Pulse recently got a tour of the data center from Banhof CEO Jon Karlung, who provided a look at the many unusual […]
If you follow this link it will take you to an interactive map of the linux kernel. It is really interesting and works a lot like Google maps for navigation.
Been having a tough time figuring out just what CERN’s Large Hadron Collider does? Well check out this nicely made video and all will be explained.
Stefan Grothkopp has come up with a pretty neat tool called goosh.
