The Human SuperComputer
Since I could not get to SC09, we are going to try a little experiment in High Performance Collaborative Computing. Much like Condor, I am asking to borrow a few of your spare cycles to carry a message for me. The 3 hour time difference and the fact that the Ogre is on the floor pretty much all day has caused havoc with our communication systems. I want him to understand he is missed and see if I can make him smile in the middle of Chaos that is the show floor.
If you are at SC09 today, please go by the Purdue University booth (2473) and ask for Dave. ( or ask for GOAT, or maybe even ask for Ogre). He will be the guy who has grown out his hair to look a bit like Wolfman Jack. Just give him the following message:
"There is a Kitten in Kokomo waiting for you". If you want, tell him Roguepuppet sent you.
If you manage to make it by, feel free to respond below and tell us what his response was.
Even if you do not leave a message, please accept my heartfelt thanks.
And if you are not at SC09 either, but know someone who is.... pass this on.
