    I read an article in BYTE in the 1980's. They claimed to be doing this back then. So much for 30 years of progress..

    Of course the first thing that it will do is download porn and get a nasty virus.:D

    Seriously though, I take it that this is the quantum processor that can do the same calculations in one second that a "normal" computer can do in one day ? Refridgeration technology is built around it as no one fan would be big enough to cool this mega processor. It`ll take seconds to break passwords with that kind of computing power I presume ?

    Regards Eck:)
