How fast did they go on the salt flats?

I figured out what I needed to duplicate them just using a Digikey catalog and a Visa card. Anyone else with a dollar left on their credit line can do the same.

John what are quantum purifiers and why would you need one ....

LLNL keeps up with the best of everything... including computer science. yes, used a Cray like the one shown... I saw it thru a glass window when they were up and running... several in a row. But today its a different brand... see LLNL.gov for the latest and fastest on the planet and where /who has it. Things change fast in that field. -RNM
