I have access to 20 C180s and C400s HP-UX running 10.20 on a fibre net at
Agilent for night time processing-If you or anybody else wants to send me
your code or anybody else has a TC simulator that needs heavy
processing-(How fast can you say E-Tesla 5000x5000 array-IF you can work
out those anomalies, TF-and get it to integrate with Beowulf).
