Create Debian Linux packages: "Learn the basics of creating Debian packages for distributing programs and source code. " | SysAdmin to SysAdmin: Parallel I/O for clusters using PVFS: "When you're trying to share files and perform I/O-intensive operations across 100 nodes of a Beowulf cluster, the old model of a central NFS file server handling every client request begins to break horribly."
Mahatma Gandhi Lecture 2001: "Ultimately we are dominated through ideas and ideas emanating from the West have insinuated themselves into the rest of the world in the last one-and-a-half centuries, through colonisation, and now far more massively and intrusively through globalisation."
Statement at the Plenary of the 48th UNGA -ADDRESS BY HER EXCELLENCY BEGUM KHALEDA ZIA, PRIME MINISTER OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF BANGLADESH:We all live on the same planet. World civilization today and its accumulated store of knowledge is the joint achievement of all peoples of the world. Everyone has a claim to an equal share of the world's resources and prosperity. The great disparity that exists in the field of technology must be removed; therefore, we want a free flow of technology.
Hardware Knowledgebase - Do LCD's Have any Energy or Radiation benefits over CRT Monitors? - HardwareFAQs: powered by neofaq: "Regular CRTs have lots of glass, mercury and lead which, when disposed of incorrectly, is very harmful for the environment. LCD's have a higher cost of production but they also have fewer such problems when being discarded."
About LCD and CRT monitors - Factors in selecting your computer monitor technology.: "LCD technology virtually eliminates radiation emission. However, all CRTs emit Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields from 60 Hz to 75 Hz, and Very Low Frequency (VLF) electric and magnetic fields from 10kHz to 30 kHz. Specific frequencies vary by type."

Peak Oil News and Message Boards >> Forums >> Conservation & Energy Efficiency >> Some of the simplest things we could do..sighThe PC itself takes a lot less power than the monitor especially if you're running anything newer/better than Windows 95/98. Windows NT and XP (and 2003 should as well) come with a "System Idle Process" that issues the HLT instruction (HALT, actually) when doing nothing in particular.
Energy Calculator PC Equipment: Tool to calculate the energy saving in your office!
Energy and IT vendors devise ways to save electricity: On average, CRT monitors use 80 to 120 watts while switched on. LCDs are much more energy-efficient at 30 to 50 watts in use. Although LCDs still cost significantly more than CRTs, Hershberg said the Energy Star staff is fielding lots of agency questions about how to analyze the potential savings of a switch from a CRT to an LCD.

The large amount of waste heat from CRTs increases the need for cooling in offices with many computers, Hershberg said. He noted that Hitachi Data Systems Corp. in late July announced that it would no longer build CRTs.
