Ok, I can not help but to comment.
Once upon a time, just for S&G's, we spec'ed out a T-FLOP cluster out of
PalmPilots. Assuming no space for wiring, we figgured we could fit
about 144 of my Palms into a cubic foot.
Crammed floor to ceiling, had our building had 1,500 stories, it would
have almost held the thing.
Sorry for my silliness, but i still find it funny.
