And super it was! :-)

Thanks to Chris for a screaming good talk and a brief glimpse of some of 
the work done both in and on the systems. All nicely extreme with 
simulations of the universe down to molecular interactions and many 
things in between. All equally extreme with the 80dBA to 100dBA scream 
of cooling fans and a temperature gradient spanning 14 deg C to 36 deg C 
across the cooling corridors... If only the students knew what might 
fall on their heads!...

And all running batch jobs on Linux :-)

Great stuff!


The Facility



SRIF-III upgrade

Next is a curry somewhere around Nottingham. Suggestions welcomed.

Cheers All,
