Supercomputer bits 'n' bobs - How to compute the "Super"

In our last talk we heard the names Babbage, Turing, Flowers, Cray and 
others in passing. There are a few more names and stories and devices to 
tell for where Supercomputers are now.

Keeping with the "Super" bits and following on from (or following 
before) our last Supercomputers talk, I hope to give a 'prequel' talk to 
give a feel for what the /Super/ /is/ in "Supercomputers".

(And Linux just happens to be the OS for most of the top 100 rated 
computers in the world.)

All at our favourite venue:
