    I'm not a green save the planet hippy or anything like that; however, that much cost and energy - I only hope it's being put to good use and not just super rich bragging rights.

    Seems awfully out of place in today's world of heterogeneous supercomputers with GPUs. The power draw confirms the oddness..

    like with any brand new super computer, typically first use of it is determining Nuclear Fall out... so not really a good initial use for such a system ~_~ but then afterwards yes they tend to do some good things with it.

    You should ask them if they'll hook up to F@H for the Bit-tech team, a couple of hours should do it.

    Yep, it's definately me causing global warming by using light bulps >.>

    EDIT: I'm also not a believer that we cause global warming since it's a fact of life. I just hate how people say it's our fault :p
