Old News

Since I'm still too busy to write something real, I'll just dump a few links that I stumbled over during the last few days into a list:

  • The world's most energy-efficient computer stands in Germany -- QPACE (QCD Parallel Computing on the Cell) at Jülich leads the Green500 list

  • The Royal Society has brought the back issues of its Philosophical Transactions online -- now you can link to papers from 1665 via their DOI ...

  • The LHC is just being cranked up again, and the ALICE collaboration already have the first paper using LHC collision data accepted for publication

  • A propos unusual papers, this paper has probably most unusual one-line abstract ever seen on the arXiv
