Made it to MIT 100K Semifinal

Great night after all. Our venture,, made it to MIT 100K Semifinal (5 out of 35 in Web/IT track). It has been really hard work. It's nice to get validated in some sort of way.

On a side note, I would like to congrat SDM program too. SDM has 5 teams made to MIT 100K Semifinal. That's 5 teams out of 30 teams. 17%, wow, that's great record for SDM. Congrats to Alex, Chad, Jeff, Arthur and my partner Cynthia.

Help from MIT High Performance Computing group

Kurt Keville from MIT High Performance Computing group, who also happens to be SDM09, has been helping with the SDM cluster. I really feel fortunate that Kurt said he has a few GPUs and a few small clusters that can be hooked into the cluster. Hopefully, we can attach them to the cluster soon. It should improve the performance greatly. Thanks, Kurt!
