Word of the day: Orthogonal

or·thog·o·nal:Adj.[from mathematics] Mutually independent; well separated; sometimes, irrelevantto. Used in a generalization of its mathematical meaning to describe setsof primitives or capabilities that, like a vector basis in geometry, spanthe entire `capability space' of the system and are in some sense non-overlappingor mutually independent. For example, in architectures such as the PDP-11or VAX where all or nearly all registers can be used interchangeably inany role with respect to any instruction, the register set is said to beorthogonal.Ah, the PDP-11 or VAX, such memories of room-sizedcomputers with monstorous gigabyte hard drives.  Anyway.I used the word "orthogonal" today to describe the "innovationpack" planned for Lotus Notes and Domino in mid-2006.  This isthe set of capabilites including a blog template, RSS feeds, and Noteson a USB key that were announced at Lotusphere.  They're "orthogonal"because they are not a 7.1 or 7.5 fact, no core code is disturbedat all.  This is critical to those organizations who have testingrequirements in order to deploy a "new" piece of software.  The"innovation pack" is separate from the core Notes/Domino codestream.  Apparently, the "orthogonal"nature of this deliverable taught several people in the room a new SATword.Other notes from today's Lotusphere Comes to You in Chicago:- About 120 customers and partners attended.  Speakers included KevinCavanaugh, Rob Ingram, David Marshak (demonstrating Sametime 7.5 live!),and Joe Linehan. - In my session on Notes/Domino directions, all of the attendees were onND6.x or 7.  A number of Linux and iSeries customers represented,as well as some pSeries and Solaris.  Oh yeah, there were Windowsusers, too. - Today was my first visit to the IBM offices at 71 S. Wacker, Chicago. This is the address that has been on my business card since August,but until today, I had never been there.  Nice place, very sleek. The A/V equipment is first rate (except the wireless microphone setup). But now I can no longer point out that as a telecommuter, I've neverbeen to my own office.  Though I still didn't go looking for wheremy snail mail is stored.

ThumbDrive is a portable, removable storage drive with Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectivity.

IBM PCs push dual-CPU, USB, MO hot buttons

IBM will shortly launch machines designed to run dual Pentium Pro processors at prices under £3,000. Exactly what machine will be launched and the exact date, is a secret for the next couple of weeks, but for someone who simply must have the fastest machine around, it looks like a safe bet that you'll be able to buy a dual 200MHz machine before the Xmas rush.
