Cosmic Rays and ECC

Sun,IBM and Cisco have given me the cosmic ray excuse a few times over the years but having a bit of a read of the Sci papers its seems to be a bit of an issue

ECC used to be a high end feature, now as ram becomes more dense you can expect errors in your systems almost daily

Here is a project to log the ECCs with Linux

there was a patent in 2007 to build detectors into RAM ICs,309,866.PN.&OS=PN/7,309,866&RS=PN/7,309,866
