    I accept our new Blue Gene overlords as complete and absolute rulers of our unworthy world.

    I wonder when they're going to stop building that thing?? ;)
    It's still my dream machine though! (with a team of programmers to make a software layer for Windows too o'course. Since you'd have to be amazingly rich to get one, the programmers would be cheap... ;) Watch out 3DMark, that nice system would run it software for 100,000 marks.
