rrrryan, so true. In this day and age, it is intimidating even to talk because we are forever reminded that we might not be able to walk the talk. But nevertheless, we have to keep on dreaming.. and as Langston Hughes said, *if dreams die, life is like a broken winged bird that cannot fly*

It is very understandable to have such thoughts when you are smart and full of energy and living in today's Nepal. But then, the first step in the production of something or anything for that matter is the act of thinking, better said - dreaming. So love your dreams, remain optimistic and try realizing it, not forgetting that you have a lifetime to do it.

But again, just for the sake of argument, there is the saying, "The only way to make your dreams come true is to wake up and start working"

I just read this news which says that the price perl Gflop of computing is almost ten times better than the IBM 2-cell configuration.

Amazing piece of news - using PS3s to buying cheap processing power, that too, by the American Department of Defense! In addition, the latest Linux kernels and major Linux distributions do run on it unmodified. Seems like I gotta buy one to toy around. :)

yeah @Ganesha, send me one too.. haha.. and if possible have other people send me PS3s so that I can build my own machine.

In the same thread of thoughts, I was also wondering whether virtualization on a single powerful machine would not be more cost effective.. hmm...

Virtualization is primarily used by companies when you have to setup an individual server and you know that it will be only be rarely used upto its full processing capability. You then collect a bunch of such applications that need individual installations, virtualize them and put them on one physical machine with lots of memory and CPU. That way, you will use the host machine's processing power more efficiently and save on cooling costs (the assumption is not all applications will want to use all CPU at the same time). And for cases where you need raw processing power, you want your application to access hardware, with as less abstraction as possible so that a minimum of CPU is wasted on the overheads to manage the layers. Thus virtualization in this case is just not practical.

And by the way, virtual machines can be migrated live! Isn't that just wonderful, moving a complete machine, with its state intact to another place and running it again with barely noticeable effect on the user's end? How about freezing life and restarting a year later to find the person in the exact state you froze him!
