Lintel Iron Makes Headway in the Top 500 Super Rankings
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The bi-annual rankings of the Top 500 supercomputer sites were released today, and show that clusters of servers using 32-bit Pentium processors from Intel have made great strides in climbing the high performance computing charts.

by Doug Mewmaw

I recently celebrated my 15th anniversary at my company. A mentor of mine celebrated his 26th on the same day. On each anniversary, I always feel like the younger brother of the local football star. People come over and congratulate me, then turn to my peer, incredulously, once they learn of his years of service. We are both long-timers.
