    Weta is the S**t. They rank right up there with Pixar when it comes to breaking boundaries. I cant wait to see King Kong, and they havent even started it yet!

    Sweet. They should convert to G5's. I guarantee that Weta would build a bigger G5 "supercomputer" than that of Virginiatech. Just giv'em the ol' discount. I wonder if Steve would ever give Weta a discount? ;)
