Transmeta's Crusoe: the Technology and its Implications

  What if your CPU could run code for any other chip at native speeds?
  Or speed up your code the more times you ran it?
  Maybe even add capabilities to itself on the fly?
  And all this with power usage so low you could run a laptop 
    for weeks on end?

  Martin Ling will discuss Crusoe - Transmeta's new processor.


This will be followed by an introduction to PGP, the de-facto standard 
for encryption of email, and how to prepare for the Key-Signing party 
on 24th Feb.

Date:  Sunday 6th February 2000
Time:  6.30pm
