You're given unrestricted access to the Pleiades Supercomputer for 48 hours. What would you do?
>inb4 install gentoo
It already runs on Linux
upscale anime to 4K using the latest and greatest VP9 encoders for optimal file size
Mine BTC, also bring a few cute outfits and take pictures of me posing by it and then shitpost about how I'm mining BTC with a supercomputer with the pics as proof, nonstop for the next 48 hours.
install BOINC, add seti, rosetta and einstein projects, run them for the 48 hours, get attention for the rest of my life fo supporting the science and potentially finding another life form in the space
It wouldn't show the gorillion CPUs. It's a bunch of networked computers. Each node is beefy, but not THAT beefy. Any node would just look like a beefy workstation, not a supercomputer.
There are computers from SGI that have >1000 cores running one instance of Linux. If I wanted to show off, I'd use one of them.
Install Windows 7 so its actually fucking usable
>All it took was the offer of free imaginary money.
All money is imaginary. It's not like paper money has value because of the paper. Hell, even gold is only valuable because people generally agree it is.
moot managed to convince someone to pay good money for an antique Pakistani doorhandle collectors messageboard, ffs.
Mine Bitcoin. It wouldn't make me much money at all, but it's the best thing I could do on such short notice.
Bitcoin mining is 100% integer. FLOPS is a VERY poor way of estimating how much bitcoin you could mine.
Technically you are correct, but government backed currencies have a powerful entity and a global trading system saying that they are worth something, whereas Bitcoin (when it was young) had nothing. It's pretty cool that it grew into a global community that says it has worth.
shit post on /pol/, troll on /x/, fap to queens blade on some chinese web site that streams anime and ask a few dumb questions on /g/ like can i run h games on linux without a windows emulation box?!?!
>Run benchmark tools and use the name FAGGOTNIGGERBALLS so all the benchmark tools would have to show it on their top list.
>Run folding @home and mine cybercurency for 24 hours , after that donate all the money to charity and attract media attention ,legally change my name to "fuckniggers Peterson" so they have to say it on TV
