comment Does the meaning of the term WWW mean it has to be performed by HTTP servers- by definition?
@cecilkorik, that indeed is the point. It can be done - just not as well as with HTTP. Indeed, you could easily make the case that the "Web" would not have taken off without the introduction of HTTP/HTML/etc & I think that would be right. Gopher, after all, was a pain to use!

Semantics and politics perhaps. From the WikiPedia page on SPDY: "The first draft of HTTP 2.0 is using SPDY as the working base for its specification draft and editing". Perhaps what I should have said was the SPDY was designed to improve rather than replace HTTP.

SPDY is not a replacement for HTTP. Indeed, HTTP v2.0 will encompass SPDY and replace the current HTTP v1.1

comment normal motherboard and CPU temprature
CPU is fine, maybe the motherboard is running a little hot but it isn't too excessive. Try the trick with the vacuum cleaner if you like, it doesn't hurt. But overall, I don't think you've anything to worry about.
