    Fifth Quarter

    The last thing Tera needs is another quarter per year: that would just be another excuse for delay.

    By the way, Leinenkugel's is the official beer of supercomputing.

    • How can you possibly say that Leinies is the
      official beer of supercomputing after they were acquired
      by Miller, the paramilitary branch of Phillip
      Morris. Leinies is not what it used to be - spiritually
      or tastewise.

      If Huber won't work for you,
      how about Red, White & Blue or Grainbelt? Maybe
      Andeker? Even Old Style (aka Dog Style) will work in a
      pinch. Wish I could email you a sixer, but that protocol
      has not been released yet.

      Off topic, what
      they hell is going on with our little company here,
      Third? I was hoping for some press releases after the
      new year to take advantage of this January Effect.
      Any insights or guesses?

        Speaking of news, I would have thought that SDSC would

        No one answers the phone at Tera, so either they're
        in "bankruptsy" or they finally got "Caller ID".

      • (mysteriously around the same time Tera was
        founded) when they sold out to those executives from
        Pabst, who ran the place into the ground and sold off
        the Augsberger line to Stroh's. While the family is
        back in charge now, they're hardly in a position to
        take on a responsibility like Official Beer of
        Supercomputing. In any case, I saw Burton at the Blue Star a few
        weeks ago, and while I didn't go over to ask what beer
        he was drinking (or when they'll get four stable
        processors) I can tell you authoritatively that the Blue Star
        serves neither Huber nor Leinenkugel's.

        anyone tell me what a 'test chip' is, regarding the
        development of the CMOS machine, and whether having one
        represents significant progress or not? Is this one of the
        first stages of the journey or the last?
