PERC 4 and Windows 2008 R2


Recently, I had the chance to load Windows 2008 R2 on a relatively dated piece of equipment, a Dell Power Edge 2850.  Unfortunately, Windows 2008 R2 does not natively support the PERC 4e/xx series.  

Google's Go

While playing with Google's Go programming language, I discovered that it properly traps stack overflows.  A basic concept for a compiler, but interesting to play with from a web browser (http://www.golang.org).  This led me to wonder how complex of a stack could be built and properly trapped.
