  Monolithic Dome Institute
Currently, Kevin is completing the final two of eight Monolithic Domes, each with a 20-foot diameter that encompasses a bathroom with shower, basin and toilet; a kitchen with stove, refrigerator, table and chairs; a furnished sleeping area.
Despite the fact that Monolithic Domes are strong enough to withstand a Category 5 Hurricane, Cliff and Patsy Monk found out that it takes lots of patience and persistence to convince lenders, insurers and even neighbors that dome homes offer the best housing available in coastal areas.

  Monolithic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computer operating systems, a monolithic kernel is a kernel which behaves as a single program, rather than as a collection of intercommunicating programs as in the microkernel design.
The term "monolithic kernel" was coined as a mild term of abuse during a period in operating systems research when microkernels were believed to be more advanced and capable.
In glazing, a term monolithic glass generally indicates a glazing unit (pane) made up of a single thickness of glass as apposed to the multiple thicknesses of insulated or laminated glass.

 Monolithic kernel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A monolithic kernel defines a high-level virtual interface over the hardware, with a set of primitives or system calls to implement operating system services such as process management, concurrency, and memory management in several modules that run in supervisor mode.
In a monolithic kernel, all the processes such as the filesystem management run in an area called the kernel mode.
More modern monolithic kernels such as Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris can load executable modules at runtime, allowing easy extension of the kernel's capabilities as required, while helping to keep the amount of code running in kernelspace to a minimum.

 Current Trends in Operating System kernels   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
In general, it is considered that monolithic kernels are not the right way to go because of the fact that code has to be rewritten for all new architectures that the OS is to be ported to.
If we take specific examples of monolithic kernels however, we will see that portability is achieved through pre-processor directives that specify which parts of the code are to be compiled for which hardware.
In contrast to the monolithic kernel, we have microkernels that seek to be platform independent while still not giving up too much on performance.

 freshmeat.net: Editorials - Modular vs. Monolithic: The winner is ...?
Writing a program which is for the most part monolithic may help get it off the ground (like OpenOffice...or the majority of programs), but as new variations on old features are added or other software which it uses is updated and modified, a framework structure greatly reduces maintence time and trouble.
And as for performance, with speed of computers now and the growth of that speed, I think the overhead of component communication is more than compensated for by the flexibility, upgradibility, and most directly by the knowledge that the code in the module is written to be the best at what it does.
Monolithic software is hard to extend if it is not designed in a modular fashion.

 Monolithic Marketplace - Welcome
The Monolithic story begins with David B. South and his interest in dome building.
By 1975, David and his two brothers, Barry and Randy, had successfully built their first Monolithic Dome—a potato storage facility in Shelley, Idaho, 105’ in diameter and 35’ high.
Today, Monolithic is a family of companies sharing a mutual goal: to improve the lives of people worldwide through the introduction and construction of Monolithic Domes, for personal and public use, that are superior in strength, energy-efficiency and cost control.

 Monolithic Multiprocessors
It is not clear that the proposed class of monolithic multiprocessors would have immediate applications to the MS-DOS compatable world of MS-Windows variants, but such a chip should have immediate application to the UNIX workstation world.
With a monolithic multiprocessor, an interesting possibility arises: In those cases where the effects of the defect are confined to one processor, disabling that processor may result in a perfectly useful, although lower performance chip!

This is accomplished in this construction method by the continuous form of concrete that defines the shape of the dome structure.
Reinforced steel bars (rebar) are installed in a mesh formation and follow the shape of the dome that has been formed by the foam.
Shotcrete (spray concrete) is sprayed over the rebar and when it cures the airform is deflated and removed from the outside and the monolithic structure is intact.

 Re: Gates: "There is nothing monolithic about chaos."
When you use linux there's a little of everything, it really is chaotic, with lots and lots of disparate sources for what you use.
Tue, May 10 2005 7:28 PM Monolith literally means "one rock" - a solid structure with no points of weakness.
That is, theoretically, the possibility of an unchanging, static, predictable entity, an encapsulation of chaos, is entirely reasonable depending upon how and from where you are observing it.

 Monster Magnet : Monolithic Baby! - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Yes, lead Magneteer Dave Wyndorf is worthy of his own descriptive, his impeccable songwriting skills truly standing on their own crater-pecked asteroid in the music-biz cosmos.
So it goes with Monolithic Baby!, which marks a couple of superficial transitions for Monster Magnet -- off a major and back to an indie; new rhythm section (Jim Baglino on bass and Bob Pantella on drums) -- but still upholds Wyndorf's highly entertaining mass of contradictions and vices.
Simultaneously whip-smart and cementhead-stupid, smirking and sincere, he can challenge your intellect with an inspired arrangement or pseudo-political left-field lyric, then bash you over the head with a fat, greasy guitar riff; such is his genius.

 SoundStage! Equipment Review - Channel Islands Link DAC Mods and Monolithic Sound HC-2 Power Supply (9/1999)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
The stock Link DAC was on hand during the evaluation period, so there was a perfect opportunity to make some very worthwhile comparisons of the stock and improved products to ensure that the changes were, indeed, improvements.
The power supply was designed by Greg Schug of Monolithic Sound and me. The Link DAC upgrade consists of raising the operating voltage of the analog stage from +/-8v to +/-15v for better headroom and replacement of many parts in the analog stage.
The Channel Islands mods and Monolithic Sound HC-2 power supply combined give you an $857 package (includes cost of Link DAC) that vaults you over much of moderate- to medium-priced 16/44.1 playback hardware out there, especially equipment that has a few years on it.
