    Lol, appearently you're not experiencing any heat problems

    If me pours drinks over the CPU fan, it leaks down and cools the graphics card aswell. Handy.

    Beer? What wusses. You can get Liquid Nitrogen for under $1 per gallon, and it's non-conductive.

    My wife uses liquid nitrogen for her goat semin tank (yeah, you heard me right) and It costs about $20 to fill our 30 gallon tank. I wonder how long it would take to evaperate 30 gallons of liquid nitrogen with a cpu. Hehe (hey, that's what cray uses with their supercomputers)

    Actually, cray is making a come back. They just had an article on the NY times about that.

    One thing crays can do that the clusters can't is deal with really big numbers and problems that can't be divided into smaller parts. Also, crays are easier to program. I guess people are having a hard time programming cluster computers.

    Snippet: (article is old enough now that you have to pay to see the whole thing)

    Scientists in government, industry and academia are reviving late Seymour Cray's elegant approach to building ultra-fast computers; Burton J Smith, founder of Tera, which bought original Cray Research in 2000, has become industry's leading champion of Cray's design philosophy; Cray's custom machines are known as vector supercomputers and have special hardware intended to handle long strings of numbers in complex scientific computing problems; had been largely replaced by massively parallel processors, designs based on linking thousands of inexpensive, mass-produced microprocessors; such MMP machines are now proving to have limits...

    computer.... you are shocking. AlCapone is the one who will be happiest, he is the one who breeds them and makes the videos. I simply borrow them every now and then.

    Not mass breeding, delayed breeding. Some of the goat semin we have is from bucks that are dead, we plan on selling, or is from a buck that's really nice that we want to wait and use on our best doe[s].

    We also trade semin with other people to work with lines we wouldn't normally be able to because of distance.
