What I would like to know is the number of Cray-2's still intact, and...
probability of availability (ie, acquisition). The last I had heard, the
last operational Cray-2 was decommissioned, yet left intact, by
NetworkCS sometime in 1999. Trouble is, all that which was mentioned
previously in this thread regarding acquisition of Cray supers, plus the
fact that it was liquid cooled, and Fluorinert (sp?) which needs
replenishing would cost oodles of money.
