    Bruno crept back across the pond without telling us? Menino travesso.

      Ha. I wish. That photo is from last year. Next time I’ll try and swing by your place to listen to music in that fancy-schmancy system of yours.

    Batman is a gorgeous feline! Please add a cat link to every shortbread. 🙂

      This is what I’ve been saying all along!

      You could change the final section to “Cheese, memes, and furry things” to include other furry friends, too.

      But obviously include lots of kittens.

      He’s easy-going too. He let me hold him without turning my face into bacon strips.

    From article 9 from the top:

    [quote<] Pentium Silver is for chips found in mobile and low-powered devices using the BGA mounting method. Why Intel found it necessary to further segment its already heavily segmented product lines is anyone's guess, but it just makes a situation that is already very confusing even more confusing for shoppers. [/quote<] Ding ding ding! Because marketing departments are being overrun by people that don't know the product, or have the a fiber of actually caring for making things less confusing for consumers. Throw reason out the wind! AMD is happily following along..... "Gotta catch 'em all!" [s<]Pokemon[/s<] Intel I can't wait for them to release Emerald; it was my favorite! uni-mitation Edit: strike-through code

      This really isn’t new though. In fact, it’s actually an improvement over the previous scheme. The addition of “Silver” or “Gold” clearly marks whether the chip is based on the little Atom-class cores or the big desktop cores. Before you’d have had to checked ARK.

      My day is ruined.
