The Beowulf Underground is an evil subversive group bent on
destroying everything we hold dear and sacred as computerists.
Instead of nice, compartmentalized machines that send terse
and appropriate messages over thin wires, they want to have big MONGOLIAN CLUSTERFUCK
computers with Aqualube and Free Love and Open Source and gooey money
shots of data splurting EVERYWHERE. To them I say, Beaujolais!
Beowulf is the coolest thing to come down the pike in a long time. Hell, in
terms of changing the world, I think it might even be more important than Linux.
Beowulf is a clustering technology, meaning you can tie together a whole bunch
of computers and they will look like one computer, with the combined
strength of all the components.
In other words, you and I can take out of our closets all those lame dusty old
computers with the long gray beards and bad coughs and the rheumatiz and put
them all together into a brand new sexy SUPERMODEL computer with Stairmaster
thighs and stunning white teeth. Wee-haw!
Clustering of computers is real cool. But Beowulf is OPEN SOURCE clustering,
making it super-extra fancy cool. Unfortunately, Beowulf has come out of the
academic environment, making any documentation about it REAL BORING. That's
where the Beowulf Underground comes in. It's a cool new Web site that has lots
of news and info about Beowulf. I must say, it is Da Bomb.
In fact, we're going to build a giant UBERCLUSTER with, like, 216
386 computers running Beowulf. We'll run Pigdog Journal off of it, and then
people will get the great taste of Pigdog in record time! AND there's only one
place to find out how to do this: BEOWULF UNDERGROUND. Go there NOW!
