I feel so guilty that my first thought when they said supercomputers can predict earthquakes was 'I bet they didn't see that tsunami coming'.

I bet they have a TA or two scouring ebay and craigslist 24/7.

I am glad someone else saw this!

True but not many do - I would think they made this to help communities and prove a concept that "anyone can do this" and provide massive computational power to small business and students?

I wouldn't mind cloud access to a supercomputer for spreadsheeting and document editing, you know - the hardout stuff.
