Hi, There doesn't seem to be a section on the forums for discussion of using macs in science settings. I've put a post on the Distributed Computing forum suggesting expanding its remit (but there are not many responses at all! But then there aren't many visitors!). What would people think to expanding the remit of this special interest section to also include... 1) Benchmarking 2) Macs in mathematics and statistics (matlab, spss, for example) 3) Macs for visualisation of data (matlab, graphing apps) 4) Instrumentation (labview) 5) Anything else sciencey! Astronomy, engineerng, social science, chemistry, etc. etc. 6) and of course distributed computing projects. There doesn't seem to be a natural home here on the macrumors forums for this type of thing currently. Given the amount of posts on Distributed Computing is low and usually distributed science applications are science related (SETI) I think it would make sense to expand this section rather than make a new one. The new special interest group might benefit from a new name - Macs in Science, Scientific Macs, please suggest more! Thoughts? cheers, a.
