comment Will a DVI splitter work for connecting multiple computers to one monitor
I went for an IOGEAR 2-Port Dual-Link DVI Cable KVM with Audio (GCS982U) in the end. It hasn't arrived yet.

KVM switches are anything but reasonably priced, being at least $200 for a dual dvi version.

comment Plugging in a GPU into a PCI slot via a PCI-e to PCI converter: is it possible?
Oops, this question is so old I forgot to read it properly; no, I did not try putting a PCI-e into PCI, but PCI-e 16x cards into PCI-e 1x slots by heavily modifying a 1x extender. I really do not think using a gfx card via a PCI slot will work unless you heavily modify the driver it runs on.

Fine, it worked exactly as expected, managed to get 4 5870's into one computer and started mining bitcoins on them at the same time (using poclbm)

comment How to delete the git reference `refs/original/refs/heads/master`?
+1: You should always use git update-ref -d instead of just rming the ref - bad things can happen otherwise.

comment How fast is each core in a dual-core processor?
@stalepretzel: Many notable python implementations have something called a Global Interlock Cache which means only one thread can modify global (ie shared state at a time). This really slows things down when trying to multithread, in many cases actually making the program slower than the single-threaded variety.

It's worth pointing out as well that core frequency is not really an important factor in determining the number of operations/instructions a second a processor can make (these days).
