buzzcut73: So, new Fark server coming soon, or is Red Tube gonna snap it up at the surplus auction?/Honestly curious about what's going to happen to it
wildcardjack: I've never played with supercomputer scale problems but I've done a course in FEA. To properly describe an object would take massive matrices and lots of trigonometry, but it was all interconnected. So I understand why you'd want to keep your data in touch with all the other data points in the matrix, sort of.It's strange to think about distributed computing vs super computing. An outsider has a hard time wrapping one's mind around the difference, and quite frankly I'm not sure where the line is. I know on DC you do single thread tasks that are not interdependent, but where's the point of complexity that breaks between DC and SC? I guess that's a CompSci issue, I just used ALGOR for my mechanical engineering course./Back in the day they'd do FEA by hand//Instead of a steno pool they'd have a floor of women doing math.///Which is why I think you should be able to break anything down to DC.
