Lost Glory: $5 Million Cray Y-MP Supercomputer Is Now Baby Furniture

Taking a moment away from prediction markets, we wanted to call attention to some dear friends of ours who were recently featured in Gizmodo.com. Pam and Paul Costa who live in Silicon Valley recently had a baby named Edison. Paul is a computer engineer and apparently picked up a Cray Y-MP Supercomputer at a YARD SALE and turned it in to baby room furniture.

Knowing Paul and Pam they will be pleased by whatever little Edison decides to do with his life. But we can't help imagine 2 beaming parents 18 years down the road when the kid tells them he's going to major in computer science or mechanical engineering. :)
