gimme some of that!
Whoa. That's pretty cool. I like how they have 0.5 Terabytes of hard disk space.
My favorite sentence is this: "The installation and set up of this cluster took less than 1 day (including moving the machines to the computer room, unpacking the machines, and making all the cables!), and it did not require previous knowledge of networking..."
Tell M$ to stick that up their NT pipes and smoke it.
i just messed myself.
It's too bad you can't really do anything practical with it, like play Quake, for example. Anyone remember how to program in Fortran 77? . Fortunately, I took Fortran and Cobol on old Vaxen, so it shouldn't be too much different. I want a cluster of 64 for my birthday... Pop those puppies into 1U rackmount units and hook up a plasma display... Boom, baby!
.5 terabytes isent all that mush when you thing about it.. only 500gigs you can get that in 5 100gigs HDs
That's true. Just think about any heavy scientific modelling. They'd have to have multi-terabyte arrays to store the data. Protein sequencing, quantum particle stuff, etc. Heck, even the Terraserver has a terabyte of info in it. Now, if some kind soul would go into the future and bring me back a terahertz Mac, I'd be fairly happy.
