You go through the calcs to figure out how many overclocked, liquid cooled P4's it would take to heat your spa. :furious:








You actually build a CPU heated water heater to make hot beverages. :devil:

You hijack the Earth Simulator Computer in Japan.

You don't know why you were just arrested.

... if you put Prime95 on the display computers at your local Circuit City, Office Max, CompUSA, and Best Buy.

My last post sounds like i actually did it, but i have not. (I need an EDIT button :) ) I have thought about asking the manager if i could run Prime95, but never had the nerve :) .

We could almost have a tread on unusual places you might find GIMPS power :) .
