Swansea University to get “most powerful computer in UK”

Swansea University gets “the most powerful computer in UK”. At least, that’s what the Vice Chancellor called it in his email to all staff yesterday. If that’s really true then it boggles my mind that the University’s own announcement is only three paragraphs long, and finishes with “For further information on the launch, click on the banner on the homepage” with no indication as to which banner, or indeed homepage, is being talked about.

Update: the Clinical School’s announcement has much more detail.

    They’re not planning on letting LIS anywhere near it are they? ;)

    I hope you have tenure when you post things like this.

    I don’t have tenure. I wasn’t worried until I saw this.

    Either way, I’ve now added a link to the Clinical School’s announcement, which is more detailed and probably what they intended to link to. I note that this post is the top hit on google for “swansea.university powerful.computer”, by the way. :-)
