Halcyon show off their soft side

Tech divers don't need to go all in black anymore - it seems Pink is the latest colour for the northern hemisphere 2011 summer. Camo always seems to be in with cray hunters - any takers?

I'm picturing that in warm water matched with a pink camo thong...

Not on me you understand! I really hope no one was picturing that... At least no one who knows me!

Good to see a more playful design approach

What does the H2 SPEC mean?

I hadn't.... until you mentioned it. Unfortunately, I can't get the picture out of my head now.



I've always kinda thought about Halcyon as the "Big Blue" of equipment manufacturers, Jamie.... pink is certainly a novelty! I wonder how pink would go down if the original Big Bue (IBM) started selling servers in pink??

Doesn't red (a large part of the colour pink) disappear pretty shallow anyway? So at the 10m mark the Pink turns black anyway? But seriously, nice to see Halcyon taking life a little less seriously and realising that not everyone wants to be a ninja.

Re the big blue: Soon IBM will commission it's new $80m world class data centre in NZ (http://www.nbr.co.nz/article/ibm-buildi ... tre-116222) - you can then buy virtual servers and imagine them to be any colour you want.

In the Zen tradition, there is the phrase "Nen nen ju shin ki" which means something like "Thought following thought." Sometimes this concept is translated with the help of the words "first nen" and "second nen" where each "nen" is a reaction to the previous one. We can think of our thoughts, memories, visualizations, or sensations as good or bad, and as true or false. Particularly with the judgment of word-thought as true or false we continue this reactionary "nen" process. Another way to think of thoughts is as in context, sort of like a Jenga puzzle or concept map, where each thought is part of a system and is related to other thoughts.
Since words tend to take the form of form, thoughts also tend to categorize various sensations. In this way we have the labeling of hot or cold, life or death, black or white, or self or other. It seems that Buddhists practice non-attachment to these judgments with the observation of the incomparable uniqueness of everything. This is referred to as Buddha-nature and Buddhists say there is no word for this because all words are defined relatively.

In Western cultures this is often referred to as the "inner monologue" and takes the form of a small inner voice keeping a running commentary on things related to oneself. In some people this inner monologue can be unintentionally said aloud or indeed put down in written form. The individual suffering from this disorder can be quite unaware they are doing it.

See this comment you made here Chucky?

That's your inner monologue that is! That's you you're talking about..
