That Raspberry Pi/Hadoop article got quite a bit more traction than I expected!
Like I implied in that piece, most of the data we work with here on DQYDJ fits on disk (if not in RAM…). Still, I’m glad folks are responding to the piece – keep it coming in comments/email, and let us know if you do end up building something!
Here are the current stats on my cluster:
pi@RaspberryPiHadoopMaster:~ $ uptime
17:04:35 up 12 days, 16:48, 3 users, load average: 0.16, 0.09, 0.06
Also, I drafted my fantasy teams:
Yeah, I’ll do something about Gronk today. Too bad, but it’s only one week (Brady went for $15 in that league).
