New version of EMC2

At the moment I am reordering the information on my router I realise I have not written about the single most important improvement. Installing a new version of EMC2, including new Ubuntu.

I started with Ubuntu 8.04 and the video on the first page of this book shows the resulting speed, about 300 mm a minute.

After I installed 10.04 I ran the latency test again. Where first it was in the 90,000 area (which is changed to 50,000 by emc) it was now around 17,500. Those numbers meant an incredible difference in performance.

The 300 mm/minute went up to...

...7000 mm/minute! Seeing that for the first time is plain scary!
