  GridCafé - Grid @ CERN
CERN has a reputation for being at the forefront of networking technology - "where the Web was born" is the lab's motto.
CERN has chosen Grid technology to solve a huge data storage and analysis challenge it faces in 2007, when the Large Hadron Collider, the biggest scientific instrument in the world, starts running.
So CERN has taken a big gamble on Grid technology, and is pushing the technology forward in several ways, in order to make the 2007 deadline for the LHC.

 Origins: CERN: Ideas: The Higgs Boson
Scientists at CERN, as well as at Fermilab in Illinois, are hoping to find what they call the "Higgs boson." Higgs, they believe, is a particle, or set of particles, that might give others mass.
Scientists at CERN use the enormous ALEPH detector in their search for the Higgs particle.
CERN scientists were unsure whether these events recorded by the ALEPH detector indicated the presence of a Higgs boson.

 CERN Council gives go ahead for LHC Computing Grid project
CERN is preparing for the unprecedented avalanche of data that will be produced by the multinational experiments at its new particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most powerful device of its kind ever built.
The strategy CERN has adopted to analyse and store this unprecedented amount of data is the coordinated deployment of Grid technologies at hundreds of institutes which will be able to search out and analyse information from an interconnected worldwide grid of tens of thousands of computers and storage devices.
CERN and its partners will form the first 'virtual organisation' to adapt Grid technologies to a giant data-intensive, worldwide, computing problem, but the challenge of analysing and storing very large quantities of data will be faced by governments, commercial companies, corporations and institutes in the near future.

 Status of the CERN httpd
In particular, there is at least one known Y2K-related bug in the latest (July 1996) release of this software.
The CERN httpd (also known as W3C httpd) is a generic public domain full-featured hypertext server which can be used as a regular HTTP server.
The server is typically running on port 80 to serve hypertext and other documents but it can also serve as a proxy -- a server on a firewall machine -- that provides access for people inside a firewall to the outside world.
