hmmm... a cray? yeah... i don't know that the assembly and machine-dependant parts are very easy to get... you probably need to know someone at a university who has a supercomputer or two lying around. i know that linux has been ported to a cray at some university... i don't think you'll find that on kernel.org tho.

good luck on the money... i got... 10.. no, 20 cents here in my pocket.

Sigh...... I wonder how fast it could do a MPEG 2 --> MPEG 4 conversion. I'll bet it could kill a P IV if you could get the job to split into seperate threads properly.

I think it's pretty much obsolete, but you should be able to get it to run Tux Racer.

i've never heard of that stuff... heck i've never even seen a minicomputer in my entire life, what more a supercomputer?!? <-- (so suah ku)

but if i get my hands on that monstrous sounding device, i'll probably convert it into a huge blender. i mean... look it's already got so many blades and u have 4 more slots for more blades. i mean... what's with the blades?

as for $30,000 i could probably pay for it if they accepted leg hair as currency... leg hair is probably the only thing i have in some multitude...
