Hack a Thon, Hackathon!

January 13, 2007

Hear Ye, Hear ye,

Terrasoft, (maker of all things for the PowerPC) , maker of YDL 5.0 for the PS3
is conducting a hackathon.

Now contrary to popular assumption , this has nothing to do with gardening or any other outdoor sport. Check out http://www.hpc-consortium.net/events/hack-a-thon/intro.shtml for the low down on the event.

Any volunteers? Colorado or Bust.

(Sounds like i’m not gonna get either)

Anyway, Things i’d like to see on the Cell/PS3:

1. Optimised MM Codecs that will kick the Core2Duo’s a$$

2. Use the TOSLink for high speed data transfer between PS3’s

3. Connect 2 PS3’s in a SLI / Crossfire config

4. Power saving mode / multitasking

5. Custom firmwares ( like Slinky , my WRT54G! )

6. More love, More power, More flight simulators in my life!

7. A Bulletproof / scratch proof surface

8. Backlit USB ports. ( So we can see where the hell we are plugging in stuff..)

9. Mac OS X on the Cell.

10. A way to use a friggin laptop monitor as a display for the PS3 (in hi-def)

11. Cheaper friggin HDMI cables.

12. Shutting down the evil CBEC!

13. ….

Any inputs? Hmm.. Do i smell a platinum sponsor?

Friends, Rothmans, and aliens in specialty occupations, Lend me your beers;

I come to buy the appeaser, not to appraise him,
The evil that men do lives after their appraisal cycles, {Its, “Very Baad”}
The good is oft distributed among the strawberries and the blackberries,
So let it be with appeaser…. The noble eBabelfish
Hath told you that PS3/3 PS1s was ambigious:
If it were so, it was a goodness grievous fault,
And grievously hath 3 PS1s answered it….
Here, under leaves of the Banyan tree he rests,
(For Brinjal is a del.icio.us vegetalbe;
So are they all; all del.icio.us vegetables)
Come I to speak about this Salad….
He was my dinner, faithful and just to me:
But a Brinjal was too conspicious;
And Brinjal is a small aubergine
He hath brought many Eggplant Parmesans captive home to Rome,
Whose abdomens did the general coffees/toffees fill:
Did this Caesar’s salad seem ubiqutious?
When that the poor have cried, Caesar’s hath dressing:
Ambition should be made at home,
Yet I can make it at home for Nothing;
And Brinjal is a handsome vegetable.
You all did see that on the Best Buy
I tried to buy the Playstation 3,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this bankruptcy?
Yet the Salesman says I was denied,
And, sure, he is an honourable man.
I speak not to disprove what the Salesman spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did have a low credit rating once, not without cause:
What causes withhold of funds, and then to mourn ?
O judgement! thou art fled to debit cards instead,
And men have lost their reason…. Bear with me;
My heart is in the cardboard box with the appeaser,
And I must pause till it come back to me.
