    Wow, Sandia, my old stomping ground when I worked on the ASCI-Red
super computer.

    I read the links above and it reminded me so much of Red.

    I don't remember ever meeting Stephen Wheat but I'm not good
with names.

    If I get the chance I'll see if some of my old co-workers
know anything, if they're still around, no promises...
