Right! Back from my pilgrimage to Philip Island for the GP. 6 days on the bike, 300-700km/day. Not a bad trip. :) Thanks to Torment for keeping the news going in my absence.. expect some catchup over the next little while.
Some nicely finished PC's from oraldlight and t00l.. I like the cold-air duct on that last one.
Everybody seems to be talking about a new AMD-powered Cray supercomputer. It's only in the planning stage, but will reportedly feature 16,000 Opteron CPU's and be used for such useful things as nuclear simulations. Info on TheReg thanks Freaek, FiringSquad thanks Sniper and ZDNet thanks dred. The official word is on AMD.com and Cray.com, thanks DrDevil and Sandia.gov (the people buying it) thanks Bern. There's some discussion and more links here in our forums.
