Links of interest for 21 Mar 2008 - 25 Mar 2008:
- Paper Enigma Machine - What a brilliant idea, and a great teaching tool too.
- Sun turns to lasers to speed up computer chips - Now this would be brilliant if Sun research proves to be a success. Sun's continually proving it is light years (excuse the pun) ahead of everyone else in the processor business and this is just another example.
- Australian WiMAX pioneer trashes technology as "miserable failure" - I wonder how many more people are going to come forward now and bring their problems to light.

- From BFS to ZFS: past, present, and future of file systems - Great article on the filesystems and their history.
- Firefox 3 goes on a diet, eats less memory than IE and Opera - Finally!! Firefox has got it's memory usage under control. Only time will tell how well it keeps things in check, especially when badly coded extensions/add-ons are added to the mix.
