Having Made Fun of Russian and Chinese Military Fraud

 I thought sharing this gem of the USAF doing something clever and cheap with PS3s:

In November 2010, the Air Force Research Laboratory created a powerful supercomputer, nicknamed the "Condor Cluster", by connecting together 1,760 consoles with 168 GPUs and 84 coordinating servers in a parallel array capable of 500 trillion floating-point operations per second (500 TFLOPS).[22] As built, the Condor Cluster was the 33rd largest supercomputer in the world and was used to analyze high definition satellite imagery while costing only one tenth that of a traditional supercomputer.[23]
