I watched an episode of NOVA on PBS about Hurricane Katrina and they showed a clip of a guy doing some models back in 2004. Here is the exact quote: "The fictional hurricane Pam was created by Ivor Van Heerden in his supercomputer..." He was using a PowerMac. I just thought this was kind of funny. I know you all know that you have been using supercomputers, but it's good to here someone else on the outside commend Apple for it's "superness." Anyway, I thought you guys might like that. Here's a link to the video if you want to watch it. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/orleans/program.html It's pretty interesting. Although I liked the one about the DARPA race for unmanned vehicles better. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/darpa/program.html It's amazing that they had 5 robots complete this 130 something mile course. It's incredible. The farthest any went the year before was 8 miles.
