Comment Rats. (Score 1) 95

I just, with this article, realise that my understanding of computer science may not be keeping up with reality. I am now old. Why would someone want to calculate zillions of floating point results on their PC? How can a GPU card have no graphical interface? And when did we start using Teraflops in desktops!??!?!

Similarly, I bike to work. It takes me about 12 minutes on my super-efficient bike (BMC, 8.1kgs total. Once a gear-head, always a gear-head). A can of redbull has 152 calories and given that I'm an average rider, I burn off pretty much every one of those calories on the way to work, thereby justifying a second caffeine hit. Sweet, eh?
