Well, Help.fulguy, I'm terribly sorry this article wasn't to your taste. if you felt it was a waste of your time, however, you could have simply stopped reading it after paragraph 2, when you realized it was 96th. Instead, you chose to waste more time and write a comment accusing EE Times of taking money for editorial? Is that right? Is that what you believe happened here? Because that is not how we do things at EE Times. Just wanted to clarify that for you. I wrote about it because I happen to be passionate about HPC, about education, and about making supercomputing available to a wider, younger audience. Now, the fact that you are not passionate about that is fine, but I do hope you don't believe our news team writes ANYTHING for financial incentive. Ever. Have a great weekend.

What a piece of crap article. This is 96th on the Top500 list! Talk to me about the top 5. Not the Top 96th! Thanks for wasting my time. Is this what they call AdverNews? I wonder how much $$$ EET got? Not surprised with what's going there.

I would say that anything which brings supercomputing into mainstream education is absolutely cause for applause, yes. If it becomes normal for universities to have supercomputers, that's a huge advantage. In my opinion...

um, this is a completely mundane cluster; does it really merit applause?

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
