We're On the Map...Sorta

Supercomputing....

Well we're on the map over at the New York Times. Or at least LONI, the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative, is.

And a mighty strange map it is. Check out the lower left hand corner for #77



(Getting technical, and since we're talking about supercomputers how can you not be technical, the "computer" they're talking about in the list from which the above referenced map is drawn is the 35 teraflop "Queen Bee" (LONI says 50.7 but now we're picking nits) a node in the LONI grid that is 'sposed to be an 85 teraflop machine in its own right. The Queen Bee herself is technically in Baton Rouge but is named after a Lafayette resident. It used to be number #23 on the list back in the glory days.)
