    N'ah. There'd be a mouse and a potato inside.

    Why? Well, the mouse would run a treadmill, to power the potato. D'uh.

    Or Joe has just cracked it as to why the patatos have the power, because of the mice!!! :jawdrop:

    I had no idea that supercomputers were so cheap! £300m for the world's fastest supercomputer, for 5 years! Bargain imho.

    How random.

    There's no mice, there's certainly no potatoes and definately no lolcats.

    Supercomputers are measured in hpi (hamsters per inch).

    Surely everyone knows that?!

    Btw, there's jobs available to work on that supercomputer in the weekly rag I get at work.

    I bet you, 3 or so months after this thing is installed. It send messages to all our computers stating "All your Ghz are belong to us". Then proceed to destroy us all, but our only hope was the Pentium II's that it ignored. That would make an instense movie... imagine if this became a transformer :| hmmmmm
