You go through the calcs to figure out how many overclocked, liquid cooled P4's it would take to heat your spa.








You actually build a CPU heated water heater to make hot beverages.

... if you put Prime95 on the display computers at your local Circuit City, Office Max, CompUSA, and Best Buy.

Has anybody seriously thought of doing that? That is alot of computing power doing nothing but, "BUY ME !"

I do not think this should be done without getting permission first.

My last post sounds like i actually did it, but i have not. (I need an EDIT button :) ) I have thought about asking the manager if i could run Prime95, but never had the nerve :) .

We could almost have a tread on unusual places you might find GIMPS power :) .

If you are at HP's largest benchmark facility for the next 2 weeks and are thinking "how can I use these machines for GIMPS?"
