Well I have a new object for my techno-lust: a Sun Ultra 20 workstation with a 24 inch flat panel LCD monitor. Especially since the workstation is under $900 for all that brawny horsepower. Check that against the latest Powermac G5, which starts at $1999 and only goes up from there.
This perplexed the hell out of me this weekend.
Yep. Just what it says.
Check out this behemoth: The world’s biggest digging machine, this is the largest trencher/rotating shovel in the world. It was built by Krupp in Germany and is shown here in transit to its destination, a coal strip mine.
Looks like something created by Sauron to assault the gates of Minas Tirith if you ask me.
