I noticed this post about Munich’s new LRZ supercomputer in Garching on Moritz Angermann’s blog. Looking at this photo (webcam apparently, so maybe you can only see it in the daylight), there’s something faintly absurd about it. Apparently this big cube building (at the right) is the computer, or can be perceived as the computer because it’s dealt with remotely. This might be a picture of the inside, but I’d still rather think of the building as the computer. It’s just a very big computer, you see.
I’ve never been to Garching, but I keep meeting clever people who work there.
