Wireless remote data
Technologies and sample systems that gather sensor data across distances, usually via radio links. This includes general telemetry and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition), especially for gathering data about wildlife, natural resources, and distributed energy systems.

I have created a new category in this blog to carry notes culled about virtual computing, including virtual machines, virtual storage networks, and distributed and grid computing.  Earlier blog entries on grid and distributed computing have been spread between General Networking and Network Software categories.  I have a backlog to blog in the new category today; my apologies to subscribers to the whole blog if this isn't your cup of tea...  10:29:49 AM  permalink  

Damn Small Linux, 50 megabytes of penguin power: "Damn Small Linux is a business card size (50MB) bootable Live CD Linux distribution. Despite its minuscule size it strives to have a functional and easy to use desktop."  Pretty neat; could be useful for embedded systems or for virtual machines.  Many applications included.   8:46:08 AM  permalink  

Wireless Sensors Monitor Glacier Behavior: ", an interdisciplinary team of the University of Southampton, GlacsWeb, has deployed a network of wireless sensors inside a Norwegian glacier to record its behavior. This news release, "Sensor Technology Comes in from the Cold" says that the sensor probes, housed in 'electronic pebbles,' are buried 60 meters under the surface of the glacier. And they transmit wirelessly their observations about temperature, pressure or ice movement to a base station located on the surface, which relays the readings to a server in the UK by mobile phone.
