Links for Thursday, April 19, 2007

  • IMDB: Back To The Future Trivia – “The script never called for Marty to repeatedly bang his head on the gull-wing door of the DeLorean; this was improvised during filming as the door mechanism became faulty.
  • KernelTrap: Linux: The Completely Fair Scheduler – “This project is a complete rewrite of the Linux task scheduler. My goalis to address various feature requests and to fix deficiencies in the vanilla scheduler that were suggested/found in the past few years, both for desktop scheduling and for server scheduling workloads.
  • HacksZine: WIKISKY: Google Maps-Like View of the Night Sky – “WIKISKY lets you see what’s up in the heavens above. You can locate many deep sky objects, get detailed information on them by simply hovering your mouse, and see high-quality Sloan Digital Sky Survey images for selected parts of the sky.
