Just a thought....


How about a forum on Beowulf/HPC? There are other resources online, but perhaps a centered spot for questions?

Don't think there's enough demand yet but possibly in the future there might be.

Enough questions on said topic I would assume. There is no definite amount - it's up to jeremy.

Well considering in the past year, only around 44 threads discussed "Beowulf" and 8 threads discussed "HPC" and using "Cluster" as a search term which brought irrelevant results mixed in, it only had 254 thread hits, which a majority included the Beowulf and HPC terms.

I would say a forum that gets less than 300 threads would not meet the demand since a majority of our forums have thousands upon thousands of threads and posts in each.

I would certainly be in support of a forum concerning HPC and clustering.

One thing that I think has been overlooked here is that, if there IS a forum available for this sort of thing, then traffic and threads concerning the subject would very likely increase due to visibility.

that is a good point, to a certain extent. The LUG forum for example gets very little traffic, and it's been here as long as I have(I think).

there are two criterium for a new forum-

volume of posts, and importance of the subject. LUGS SHOULD have the forum because they are important.

Of course there is a general feeling that any new forums would just be a bad idea at the moment- the mods don't need the extra hassle.

we are waiting for a wicked cool forum development...

(ahem- WAITING) heheheheh. no pressure jeremy.
