Internet struggle

I've been taken back to my pre dsl days, thanks to the MTS MBlaze stick I recently acquired. The connection is best effort, speeds go down to a few bytes, forcing me to refresh a page at-least thrice before I can see it. All of this has made for a great vacation and bad experience. Sigh! I should have done much more research before acquiring a USB modem stick. I should probably move on to the 3G sticks available.

cgroup proposal for use in SLURM

I came across the following slides about using cgroups with Slurm. Very exciting to see cgroups be used more widely. For those of you who missed it, there is also a long discussion on autogrouping using tty's.
