There's more than one way to do things

I was struck by the same thought recently. In a class we were briefly introduced to Grid computing. I don't know much about Grid computing, this was just a very brief intro. But the picture I formed in my mind was amusing. It's supposed to be the new, up and coming thing. All I could think of at the time were old scifi movie scenes of huge computer rooms with huge systems and many companies calling in at the same time.

I know it makes sense and in today's world Grid computing is not the old "huge system" we used to see in the movies, but as Grey Fox says, it does seem that we're going round in circles. We started with a central computer area that many companies shared, and now we're talking about going back to the exact same configuration. Granted that new configuration has huge improvements over the old.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
