Too early to be
Cleaning up, but everyone
Else might as well be.
It's been an interesting day. There have been a few unfortunate incidents on the Cluster Challenge.
MIT: From what I understand, they were going to try to run things with GPUs, and they couldn't get it to work in time. So they've been filled in for by Stonybrook, the team from last year.
Colorado: Their vendor partner hasn't yet actually released the hardware they were intending to run, so there was an epic cluster rebuilding this morning.
Arizona: Running Windows Servers? It's been an interesting challenge for them. A lot of the troubles they're having are somewhat reminiscent of issues we encountered last year on OSX.
But, anyway, the time is drawing near for all our HPCC scores to be publicized. I'm anxiously awaiting our actually getting the real data sets and getting going. :) I'm even more anxious to whup up on the other teams. :P
The conference isn't as swingin' as it's going to be, but the show floor should be opening up soon. Awesome.
