Linux now powers all 500 of the world's Top 500 supercomputers. Linux rules supercomputing. This day has been coming since 1998, when Linux first appeared on the TOP500 Supercomputer list. Today, it finally happened: All 500 of the world's fastest supercomputers are running Linux. The last two non-Linux systems, a pair of Chinese IBM POWER computers running AIX, dropped off the November 2017 TOP500 Supercomputer list.

Crysis is 10 years old - and TomsHardware test it with flagship GPUs from the intervening years. “But can it run Crysis?” It’s a question that’s still asked jokingly when new graphics cards are introduced, even if the answer nowadays is almost always affirmative. But exactly 10 years ago, experiencing Crysis in its full glory simply wasn’t possible. Resolutions as low as 1680x1050 were enough to overwhelm the likes of Radeon HD 3870 and the once-mighty GeForce 8800 GTX. Let that sink in. The fastest graphics cards available were too slow for the game’s most taxing settings on relatively mainstream monitors.

Sydney has a new ferry, named Ferry McFerryface, obviously. Run a competition asking Sydney to name a new ferry, expect the outright silliest name to win. Ferry McFerryface is now officially the name of the last ferry in a new fleet of inner harbour vessels. The name was voted on by hundreds of Sydneysiders in a competition which allowed the public to be part of maritime history. Some staff are not happy, though.

Intel are set to enter the discrete GPU market, hiring a senior AMD engineer to lead the project. On Monday, Intel announced that it had penned a deal with AMD to have the latter provide a discrete GPU to be integrated onto a future Intel SoC. On Tuesday, AMD announced that their chief GPU architect, Raja Koduri, was leaving the company. Now today the saga continues, as Intel is announcing that they have hired Raja Koduri to serve as their own GPU chief architect. And Raja's task will not be a small one; with his hire, Intel will be developing their own high-end discrete GPUs. Discussion here.

Australia post have a new delivery robot.. which can only deliver one parcel at a time and needs to be accompanied by a human. But it's a start, I guess? A four-week trial of the “mobile parcel locker” began on Monday in the Brisbane suburb of New Farm. The small self-driving container, nicknamed “Billy the Box”, takes packages door to door and unlocks via a unique code that is texted to users. For the next month, residents who miss a delivery during business hours will be given the option to have their parcel redelivered in the evening by the robot.

If you're thinking of becoming a games developer, the Australian Computer Society have a free event in Sydney later this month. Hear from David about his experiences, what works and what doesn't, and the straight dope on what it takes to make it in the competitive game development industry with a small team -- or, in his own words: "Everyone has advice for indies, but for us, it was mostly irrelevant, trivial or flat-out wrong. After 6 years, here's the advice we wish received."

Today's timewaster is Candy Box 2.. from someone in IRC. :)
