  1. If I weren’t in the middle of things here, I’d go even though I don’t have a Cray… Edinburgh is gorgeous, and the EPCC folk are generally top notch. I’m still bewildered by the fact that SC’08 doesn’t have them leading a tutorial again. I’d encourage anyone with even a passing interest and the opportunity to get to this.

  2. Nice! And a better time to go to Edinburgh than the first-week-in-December High Throughput Computing workshop I attended last year.

    It’s a beautiful town, but it’s at 55 degrees North latitude. In December, the sun goes down at about 3:30 in the afternoon!
