The adventure begins
It has begun. I just signed off the package that was delivered to me from Japan. I was relieved to find in it, the 0.2 TeraFlop/s supercomputer that they call PS/3. The 20Gbyte model shines in its majestic piano black. The ebay seller was really great. Getting the electrical juice into the beast is easier than I expected: I do not need a JAP/EUR converter, just a regular euro powercable from any old computer will do. The manuals are in Japanese only, so I have to do some googling now, and then I can switch it on. I will report back later.
