If you're in the need for more hard drive space, but don't want to add another drive to your computer, you can always opt for an external hard drive. Network storage drives are a conveniant thing to have, especially if you've got a home network going. "When looking for additional storage for your PC there are 2 choices; internal or external. When going the external route most people opt for USB or Firewire drives. They are fairly inexpensive and very easy to setup. How about storage that you can access from any PC in your house and even from anywhere via the internet? Yes I'm talking about network storage. Today I am taking a look... Read more...
Some good news for AMD for a change. The success Sun and HP have been having in the server market with AMD's Opteron family of processors has caught the attention of IBM. IBM is now considering increasing their server product lineup with more servers built around the Opteron processor. The Opteron's large advantage over Intel's Xeon, is that it uses less power and produces less heat, while at the same time performing faster in most server tasks. This leaves Dell as the only top-tier server maker not selling any Opteron based servers, which could cost Dell market share.... Read more...

ZDNet has an article running on how Intel's Hyperthreading hurts server performance with certain applications.  There have been instances reported with SQL Server and Citrix Terminal Server where under heavy load, performance degrades with HT enabled.  A Microsoft SQL Developer reported performance degrading and documents the details.  Apparently, the problem lies with the on-die cache being unable to keep up with a flurry of multi-threaded requests.  "With both SQL Server and Citrix Terminal Server installations, HT-enabled motherboards show markedly degraded performance under heavy load. Disabling HT restores expected levels, according to reports from within the IT industry." ... Read more...

Hey folks, it's hard to believe that the new year is upon us.  2004 has flown by in my opinion, with a lot of changes in my life occurring.  I hope 2005 will be a good one, with a few goals set, it could be.  I'm not big on the whole "resolution" thing, but there is that sense of a clean slate, starting fresh.  I have to say, I always get a bit of a chuckle this time of year when you suddenly start seeing more joggers than usual on the road.  I guess getting in shape is the most popular resolution out there.  Well, I'm running a little slow today, woke up with no coffee in the house.  So let's get the news going so I can go get my java!
