4 mid-range motherboards with fast multicore cpu's

Meh. Played with 256 core systems at AMD, and those were some power hungry boxes. You'd do better using whatever is in

Blue Gene - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Think of a motherboard with a rack of DIMM slots, except the cpu's are on the DIMMs.

a Penultimate Greek Deadline

Aren't there some EMF bonds due the 22nd? Of course the IMF might just cover that.

2015 should be the best year of the recovery with GDP growth at or above 3%.

It looks like GDP will be in the 2s again this year.

Wouldn't the idle rich benefit from having taxes be on something more portable than land? Like something they don't really care too much about, like wages?

force them to print.

Cutting them off from further loans would seem to be the fastest way to do that. But how to keep banks from lending to them, when any Greek debt is eventually covered by the Central banks?

JP wrote:

At this point, Greece is now down to two options

Why not both. EMF backstops Greek debt, to save the banks, and Greece, unable to pay the non-debt related bills on revenue alone, exits the Euro, so they can print.

My landlord ripped out the night drop box, bricked up the hole, and instituted an online payment system. I just got plane tickets online as usual, and don't even remember how to get them otherwise. I do all my work HR stuff via the web, as my employer's nearest office is 200 mi away... I don't even have a land-line or cable, just an IP address or three...

I may be atypical for a Gen X, but I guarantee millennials are at least as far along.

Even the Oil Rout Can't Stop Houston's Economic Boom

Isn't Houston more associated with the refining of oil into useful products now? Seems to me, that low corn prices would be good for Frito Lay.

major haircuts all around(feeding frenzy).

Greece's debts may have been moved out of the banks, onto IMF books, but what about Spain or Italy?

arthur_dent wrote:

she could at least have prevented the radicalization of Greek politics.

Radical? Holding a referendum as to whether or not to honor the punishing austerity, to pay the absurd debts of the last administration? That does not sound too radical.

Geo-Graphics » Which Countries Stand to Lose Big from a Greek Default?

Germany, naturally, would bear the largest potential loss—€58 billion, or 1.9% of GDP. But as a percentage of GDP, little Slovenia has the most at risk—2.6%.

Risk-shifting only works as long as the shiftees have the ability and willingness to bear it, and a Greek default will, around the Eurozone, undermine both.

The unwind would be epic. I wonder how much US investment banks and hedge funds were betting on these loans being covered. Where have they been putting all that ZIRP money?

Many of these young people have never once voted for any of the governments which have done this but now they're being told they have some kind of duty to spend most of their lives repaying debts that other people ran up and that they have some kind of duty to creditors that loaned money to irresponsible strangers. The young are right to tell the creditors to go fuck themselves. Only the old have any moral duty or obligation.

We'll see what's what when the CDS trigger. IMF has gone WAY out of their way to try to keep that from happening. I expect a desperation Kick Me

I think the answer was "staying in school longer" to explain where the missing new job entrants are.

Is there a corresponding rise in student loan debt? And is it an arms race to have the better qualifications for the few entry level gigs out there, that the other guy, also running up non-discargeable debt?

Wouldn't adding a nice github project to your CV, be more practical?

I'm up that much on TGT over a very short period, just using a stock screener looking for low P/E, and high short interest. I think the news of the Canadian failure pushed down the stock to sweet levels. The same search picked Pixar just before Disney.
