    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.

    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.
