yeah … well … ok

page counter is broken. I put in StatPress. 1800 page visits yesterday (started at 10am) 2218 page visits as of midnight. Sheesh. This matches the logs and the post-read counts at the bottom.

Speaking about LNXI (and SGI) …

John at InsideHPC blog has a brief writeup on an article I refrained from commenting on a few days ago. In John’s writeup, he (sarcastically) notes that going private didn’t help LNXI. Last I remember, LNXI was never public, they wanted it to be, but I don’t think they ever hit an IPO.

This is not an anti-SGI position, but I did expect to hear that one or more of the investors wanted to “unlock value” which is usually code words for an asset/company sale, last year, while the valuation was still higher.

This said, you should see some of the RFP T&C we are asked to agree to.
