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.

However, my associates are often much better funded, and they just love to play with things like this with their $ 100,000 to $1 million dollar systems.
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
