[snip good info]

Hmm, is this ia64 build available publicly?  The last I saw was fairly old.  But it's been a month or more since I looked last.  We've just acquired a second box (which is more than one machine) to augment the one SGI Altix 3000 we have; this one is a melange of a small Altix 3000 and a stack of Altix 350's in one tall cabinet; at least part of that one will be operational fairly soon.

This sounds very cool.
