This is for roadrunner aka Larry

A supercomputer built with components designed for the Sony PlayStation 3 has set a new computing milestone.

The IBM machine, codenamed Roadrunner, has been shown to run at "petaflop speeds", the equivalent of one thousand trillion calculations per second.

you dont see me. i am not really here. Its my fault.. all of it. I am to blame and no one else.

Now that's one fast machine. And I bet Larry could keep up with it, too. \:\)

Very cool indeed. Thanks. I have taken note of the term "petaflop" for addition to Program's IT vocabulary. ;\)

Much love,
