Like many of you, I don’t know much about Bentley and only a little bit more about UMass (it’s in Massachusetts). But after reading their cluster competition application, I can tell you that this is a group of highly ambitious and thoughtful students.Assuming their hardware plans come together, they’ll be sporting one of the most complex builds in the competition. We’re talking lots of nodes, and probably more cores any other competitor in the Commodity Track.Their approach is to design the system building blocks to best match the various applications they’ll be running. While this is the right idea, it’s potentially problematic. The teams don’t know the size or complexity of the dataset they’ll need to work with for each application. Some of the compute tasks are shorter than others, so Team Bentley will need to take a page from Flex the Falcon, the Bentley U mascot, and be ready to make adjustments on the fly in order to max out their performance.

The ASU Sun Devils hail from the desert wastelands (and shopping malls) of Phoenix, Arizona. With more than 70,000 students, ASU is the largest school in the competition this year.Team Sun Devil is composed of four juniors and a single freshman, and probably has the most real-world IT experience. Two of their members formerly worked in the private sector, specialising in network and systems administration. Another team member was recently in the military, and competed in Intel’s Ultimate Engineering Experience – where his team won the award for the longest sustained quadcopter flight controlled by a laptop. Other team members work in ASU’s A2C2 HPC center and have experience both in building and managing research clusters.Team Sun Devil is bringing the power to the Commodity Track competition. Their proposed design looks to have fewer, but more powerful, nodes. This could be a winning strategy, since it will reduce internode communications and the latency that comes with it.

It will be interesting to see whether Team Sun Devil has the right mix of hardware in their configuration. Will they be able to match up the workloads to their nodes in order to run at peak efficiency? We’ll see in Denver. Slippery Rock is competing at the Student Cluster Competition for the second time. They were in Salt Lake City at SC12, vying for first prize in the LittleFe competition track.This isn’t the first mini-cluster rodeo for Team Rock; the school regularly competes in or hosts various programming, maths, and robotics competitions. They’re sending an experienced, senior-heavy team to Denver. And they have high hopes for their low-budget creation.Every member of Team Rock has either completed or is currently taking the school’s capstone computer science class. One of the major requirements is for students to build their own Beowulf-style cluster and learn how to exploit OpenMP and GPUs for enhanced parallelism.

Team Rock’s approach to the competition is classic. As they put it in their application, they’ll “...build an old fashioned home-brew machine”. This means buying the parts retail from Newegg and putting them together themselves.In terms of node and core count, I would expect to see the Team Rock machine somewhere in the middle of the pack, with ASU at the low extreme and Bentley on the high side. The Slippery Rock system will be more of a traditional “balanced” mini-cluster, which could pay off in this competition. Both the Standard and Commodity tracks of the SC Student Cluster competitions have always been open to university and even high school teams. However, the Skyline Eagles are the only high school to ever compete in any SCC event.Their first outing was at SC12 in hometown Salt Lake City, Utah. They competed in the LittleFe event, where students built their own LittleFe-based cluster and used it to run the time-honored “Traveling Salesman” problem.

Although they were all high school students, they fit right in with the rest of the SC12 crowd. One of the kids had enough beard to make me request a look at his driving licence in order to verify his age. Team Skyline is a close-knit bunch. They worked together well at the SC12 competition and in other computing-related contests.We have also worked on software coding for large data sets and storage when we helped develop a replacement for our district’s current gradebook program, which has numerous design and performance flaws. Hmm… this either makes these guys the most trustworthy high school students EVER, or the guys who will all graduate with near-perfect 4.0 grade point averages. (“Near-perfect” is key. Absolute perfection draws scrutiny, as demonstrated by some friends of mine in high school who got their grubby mitts on the test and homework answers for an entire course in Business Law. It didn’t end well.)The Commodity Track is a very interesting addition to the SCC competition stew. As always, we’ll be covering both the Standard Track and this new Commodity Track from every angle. Next up, we’ll talk about the applications, and then we’ll unveil yet another surprising wrinkle that we’ll be seeing this year in Denver.

Well, thanks, but I think I could have guessed that by myself based on the simple evidence that the printer is still in Sleep mode and output tray is ominously empty. Oh well, I have a bit of time spare and I’m in need of a laugh so let’s run the Troubleshooter.Good advice. Who knows, one of my five technophobe co-workers might have come in extra early that day, located the Ethernet cable at the back of the printer and, on a whim and without knowing what it was, pulled it out. This co-worker would then have covered his tracks, wiped his fingerprints, dissolved a body in a bathtub and sneaked home before returning nonchalantly at 9am after everyone else.But no, the printer is still connected. I knew this already because I successfully sent a job to it earlier from my laptop. My co-worker’s desktop computer, however, doesn’t want to know. It, too, is connected and happily online but is inexplicably on non-speaking terms with the printer since that morning.In this office, I am just one of the gang, not IT support. However, I understand that printing problems are frustrating for mere mortals and so I’m happy to help. I know a quite a bit about printing and am by nature very patient.

This is the same colleague who got in a tizzy the other day when his mouse’s right button got stuck. I told him to throw the mouse away and take a new one from the cupboard. He was shocked at my cavalier attitude and insisted on telling me all the things he’d tried to get it to work. “Just chuck it in the bin,” I repeated. “No need to get riled about it.”This advice would have gone down well at one of my clients' offices where fully working mice come at a premium. At that place, whoever arrives first in the morning habitually nicks the best mouse in the room; whoever turns up last has to make do using cursor keys.It reminded me of the early days of working at Ziff-Davis in the 1990s. For two weeks after we moved into swanky Thames-side offices, there were fewer chairs than desks, and fewer desks than staff. Thankfully, being nice guys, we did not fight over the chairs, nor descend to that sad, private hell of painting one’s name on the back of a favourite chair with three pots of Tipp-Ex.

When I mentioned the lack of decent mice to an IT manager at my client’s office, he walked me to a cupboard and threw open the doors to reveal about 50 spare mice, all in pristine shrinkwrapped boxes. How many did I need, he asked dryly.Quotw This was the week when Dell received a flood of complaints about the fact that its Latitude 6430u Ultrabook literally stinks. The whiffy laptops were shipped out to users smelling distinctly of feline urine.So a few weeks ago I got a new Lattitude 6430u for work. The machine is great, but it smells as if it was assembled near a tomcats litter box. It is truly awful!Staff more used to dealing with technical difficulties were unfazed and suggested that folks might want to give their machines a bit of a clean with a damp cloth. But owners said that cleaning the laptops wasn't working. One user lamented:I am the technology coordinator at Washington DC public high school. We have about 300 Dell Latitude 6430u laptops. 60 have been issued to teachers for the school year. So far, two staffers have complained of the cat urine smell. Is this something I can expect to hear from everyone and what should my next steps be?

To its credit, Dell hung in there, sending out new machines - which unfortunately also smelled like cat pee. Eventually, the firm managed to discover that the smell was coming from a mysterious "manufacturing process". A staffer, "Dell-SteveB", explained that it wasn't a biological contamination or a health hazard, although he didn't go into details on the type of manufacturing process that would cause laptops to smell of piss.He added that any new orders would come out smelling of laptop, though that might not be enough to soothe customers like this chap:I want you to know that I killed our 1 year old cat, thinking it was pissing on my computer each night and now come across THIS forum telling me otherwise. Not only do I want a new computer, I want a new cat, vet fees, letter of apology and payment for my divorce lawyer, since my wife has left me after finding this out.

This was also the week when Tim Cook hinted that really super-exciting yet vague products in categories that Apple hasn't gone for before would be coming next year. Of course, it wouldn't do to confirm which categories or give any indication of what products, though some sort of wearable tech is probably a safe enough bet. But Cook was willing to hint – in a way the firm is no doubt hoping will whip up all the fanbois and gurls:I've said that you'd see some exciting new products from us in the fall of this year and across 2014 and I obviously stand by that, and you've seen a lot of things over the last couple of months.In terms of new product categories specifically, if you look at the skills that Apple has from hardware, software, and services, and an incredible app ecosystem, this set of things are very, very unique.I think that no one has a set of skills like this. And we obviously believe we can use our skills in building other great products that are in categories that represent areas where we do not participate today. And so we're pretty confident about that.
