    Blue Gene/L should fit into half a tennis court, or about 1,400 square
    Also using 440GX processor?--okay lots of them--well lots and lots of
    them--actually more than you could shake a stick at.
    At the end of the day,bet it doesnt have any usb ports to upload to your
    Wonder if it will run far cry without locking up?---hmm they didnt say
    about the graphics,probably going to use a geforce or summat--well if
    they can find somewhere to slot it in.
    IBM already has spent more than the original $100 million budgeted for
    the project ---so guess we wont see it for sale in staples in the near
    future---might be in maplin/radioshack coming soon section tho.
    I hope they put some of those funky neon lights on it--might aswell let
    the neighbours know you bought a new pc.
    Just pondering how you would wire all that into a 240v wall
    socket?--probably got to spur it off the street lights.
