Re: "They’re just like Fight Club, but with much more math."

I'm really glad to hear that you enjoy the coverage of the Cluster Competitions, thanks for the comment - it made my day (so far at least).

I've shot and posted quite a bit of video covering the cluster competition at SC10, SC11, and ISC12. A quick search on El Reg using my name and/or cluster competition should pull it up. All of it is also up on YouTube too. I'm going to shoot more this year and you'll see it here first. Thanks again for the comment, it's much appreciated....
