    You think that's scary? Look at his profile picture.

    It's nice to have Macs used for Cassini work, too. They're definitely not just expensive toys, despite at how good they are at being toys.

    I'm always feel proud to be a Mac user, when I see what amazing thinks the scientists are able to accomplish. This is the very reason that Apple is going after the scientific community.

    Well I thought my earring help bring out my inner beauty!

    BTW I'm out of majic rabbits in my hat, for some reason the article has died.
    Basically it spoke about how popular Mac's, and sun systems are at NASA, and how they enjoy the command line ability. They went from zero to very popular with OSX. They also mentioned how few dell's there are there, I guess they need serious computers, not solitare machines! :D
