SuperComputer

Yesterday I read an article about supercomputer in my office intranet. I came to know that the world's fastest supercomputer uses 1,31,072 processors. Its unbelievable right?? Also it has 32,768GB of main memory (RAM) and executes 2,80,600 floating point operations (GFlops) per second. Here is http://www.top500.org/list/2006/06/100 the list of top 500 supercomputers.
One of the top 100 supercomputers is in my office campus. But havent seen :(

அன்பே உந்தன் பேரைத் தானே விரும்பிக்கேட்கிறேன்.....போகும் பாதை எங்கும் உன்னைத் திரும்பிப் பார்க்கிறேன்.....

July 4th

Hope you all might know that July 4th has been celebrated as US Independence day. Since it fell on tuesday we got a long weekend for 4 days. On July 4th evening, we had been to Seattle to watch Independence day fireworks show. It was performed at the middle of a lake and people gathered in a park near to the lake to watch the show. All the streets near to the park were jam packed and we struggled a lot to find a place to park our car. It took us more than 45 mins to park our car (also we paid 10$ :-( for that ).

As usual SUN waved 'tata' only at 9:30PM and sunlight was there till 10PM. Naama enga ponaalum kaiya veesitu thaana povoem. 9 manikku mela bayangarama kulir adika aarmbichiduchu, apuram enna enga pal ellam type adika aaraambichiduchu. Aana namma america makkal irukaangale chair, drinks, saapda thevayaana food, pothika porvai ellam konduvandhu 6 manike settle aayi irundhaanga. Indhula enna advantage-na, pakkathula naraya figures irundhadhala time ponadhe theriyala :-).

Finally the event started at 10:20PM. Oru helicopter US flag-a parakka vitutu andha lake-a oru round vandhudhu, plus one focus light from the park pointing to the flag....wow....DTS theatre-la trailor paarkara effect....adhukkappuram fireworks start pannunaanga. This was my first time to see fireworks and it was a wonderful treat to my eyes. Around 25 mins, different colours-la fireworks. Naan malaithu poi annaarndhu paarthutu rasichutu irundhen. Square, circulare, spherical, star, heart, galaxy, falls (silver & gold colours), fountains....innum pala vagayaana forms-la fireworks panni irundhaanga. It was worth waiting in the cold to watch this colourful show (ponnungalayum sethukonga ;-))

Innum photos upload pannala. Till then watch the video of the show at the following links
