SGI Securities to Cease NYSE Trading  —  MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., (November 1, 2005)—SGI announced today that it has been advised by the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) that its common stock - ticker symbol SGI - and its 6.5% Senior Secured Convertible Notes due June 1, 2009 - ticker symbol SGI 09 … [tech.memeorandum]
This is sad, but expected news. At some point an SGI was the machine to have for scientific computation, then it bought Cray and started making its own chips, and later it lost all positioning and showed all the usual signs of senility for a company (Released Intel Workstations, sipported Linux, etc). Only SUN left and even they are using AMD processors to support Windows... How sad.

Today's total post...

The last few days have had so many news I wanted to comment on, that I am thinking in a change of style, at least for some days. Write posts with more links, and more than one topic. This is the first of those... First, Sony gives another reason to stick to the Mac and not buy CDs, while Nokia releases a new browser but you can't get it, it seems. I wonder if it also passes the Acid2 test, seeing that it is based in Apple's work. Meanwhile, Russ's realizes that Microsoft's Live= Monopoly 4.0.

On politics Chirac seeks to calm Paris riots, is this another May of 68? and how come only Paris get those? And, locally, kind of, Chavez Warns of Moving Jets to Cuba, China. Right, real danger. Because in all these year their intelligence is so bad, they haven't been able to get their hands on those...
