I think the most amazing part of it all is how unremarkable it all is. I dont actually have a use for something like this, but I reckon someone on this site would have the time, money and inclination to give it a bash.

Typical linux geekspeak.Starts off saying you dont need a USB keyboard and to use the gamepad,then on a later page is "ssh [email protected]" (where IPADDR = The IP Address of that node).How would you type this into a commandline without a keyboard?

Take a look at the Nvidia Tesla series. This is a 240 core cpu that plugs into a pci express slot. Turns your pc into a supercomputer. Costs about a grand!!

Erm, with the gamepad it tells you to use!

Last time I tried to use a gamepad in a DOS box (as instructed) I couldnt get the letters to change,maybe things have changed but I wont be trying it.
