    the problem of current supercomputers is that the processing nodes are not central like the human brain, they are distributed on hundreds of cabinets which slows the computation considerably.

    Er what? Why would it slow the computation down? This isn't the sort of thing that needs a great amount of core to core communication.

    Hello. My name is Ahmed ibn Fadhlan. I am Nubian prince and rockstar scientist. I have cure for Corona viruses. Happily for you I am willing to share cures with your and provide $4 millions US dollard in funds to helping your with distributing of cures. I will send you $4 millions US dollards, but you will need to purchase first distributions rights and logistics network support. I will secure this for you and you will merely need to deposit $30,000 US dullards into our accounts details of which to follow.

    PLease revert back and do the needful to indicate your acceptance of these our terms at your earliest inconvenience.

    oh flumps. I just gave my $300000 to that Nigerian prince so I could be a millionaire and buy an island to live on while this all blows over. Shucks. Looks like I just missed out on *THE* cure of the century. Nevermind I'm sure this company can help out.

    no they just need to be in close proximity (within 2m) of each other for 15 minutes or more to transfer things between them
