Using stream_select() it will send http requests out in parallel. These requests can be made in a blocking or non-blocking way. Blocking will wait for the http response; Non-Blocking will close the connection not waiting for the response back. The API for httprl is similar to the Drupal 7 version of drupal_http_request(). As a bonus, a simple threading library is built on top of the parallel http requests functionality. This allows you to...

Boost provides static page caching for Drupal enabling a very significant performance and scalability boost for sites that receive mostly anonymous traffic. For shared hosting this is your best option in terms of improving performance. On dedicated servers, you may want to consider Varnish instead.

The US space agency's experimental hypersonic research aircraft, the X-43A, could one day revolutionise long-distance travel and space launches. The unpiloted 3.7m-long vehicle uses a scramjet to reach a design speed in excess of Mach 7, about 8,000 km/h. Scramjets burn hydrogen but take their oxygen from the air which is forced into the engine at very high speed. A scramjet operates by the supersonic combustion of fuel in a stream of...

The Cell technology, on the other hand, uses multiple Cell processors linked together to run lots of calculations simultaneously. This gives it processing power an order of magnitude above its competitors. ... Each Cell will be linked to the others, creating a vast home network of computing power.

The researchers discovered in their study that the bacteria’s game theory decision making process is far more advanced than the well-known game theory problem known as the Prisoner's Dilemma. Scientists studying how bacteria under stress collectively weigh and initiate different survival strategies say they have gained new insights into how humans make strategic decisions that affect their health, wealth and the fate of others in...
