8/3     "IBM to Build Supercomputer for U.S. Army"
        http://www.csua.org/u/8fn (Yahoo! News)
        1186 machines, ~2300 processors, runs Linux.
        \_ There's one contract for AMD Opterons, there's another contract
           for Intel Nocona (64-bit Prescott) processors.  Goddamn, the Intel
           cluster is going to burn up the building when all the CPUs hit 100%.

8/5     Why is Mac OS 10.6 $29 and 10.5.6 $129? Is it a typo?
        \_ $29 for existing users.
           \_ it doens't even support ppc does it.
              \_ who cares about ppc anymore? Everything is Intel based

12/4    A question to you old crufy alumni: So lately we've suggested
        VMs, and been asked why it's necessary. We've suggested top-of-the-line
        hardware and been told we don't need that much power. So I'd like to
        ask -- what exactly do you think the CSUA is supposed to _be_?

12/3    Are any of you CSUA alums working at Intel?  Is it possible that we
        might be able to hit Intel up for donated/partially donated (reduced
        price) Core i7 Xeons when they come out?  Who would be a good person
        to contact about something like that?  We're of course willing to put
        out for them - perhaps we'll tattoo an Intel logo on toulouse if that's
        what they want :-p  -- steven

        its global work force, as sales of its high-end computer servers have

This would be the largest Linux based supercomputer in the US military, IBM said. The system will perform at a peak speed of 10 teraflops, or 10 trillion mathematical operations per second. That means the supercomputer will be able to accomplish in just one second what it would take a person with a calculator a few million years. IBM expects the computer to be ranked among the world's 20 fastest computers when the next list of the top 500 computers is released. The Top 500 list is compiled and published twice a year by Jack Dongarra of the University of Tennessee, Erich Strohmaier and Horst Simon of NERSC/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Hans Meuer of the University of Mannheim (Germany). The fastest computer, according to the most recent list, was the Earth Simulator Center in Japan made by NEC Corp. Last week, IBM said it had been selected to build a supercomputer for the US Department of Defense that would be deployed at the Naval Oceanographic Office Major Shared Resource Center in Mississippi.
