So, a little light relief from work.

First, this cubicle is in our lab building.

The notice on it really does say "Mr M Barker. Office. Do not disturb." Suddenly my wee corner of an open plan office doesn't seem quite so bad!

Second, for the geeks out there... Some time ago we used some surplus project money to buy a monster computer - with 12 CPU cores, and 12 virtual cores - the equivalent of 6 fairly standard current home PCs sitting next to each other, or thereabouts. Sadly, it didn't seem to recognise the virtual ones, but today we figured out the issue, and poor old windows doesn't know what to do with itself when we tried to get it to show CPU use:

Look at all those CPUs! Looking forward to some serious computing power now.
