    11'''December 9, 2011:''' We broke '''200 GFLOPS''' running HPL on the a Limulus! The latest version uses the Intel i5-2400S processor. (Note: the results are double precision CPU GFLOPS.)

    3 '''September 15, 2011:''' We are seeking a vendor to manufacture Limulus!. If you are interested, join the [http://www.clustermonkey.net/mailman/listinfo/limulus_announce Limulus Announce List] or the Twitter feed.  
     3'''September 15, 2011:''' Once we figure out how to package and power things, we will be seeking a vendor to manufacture Limulus!. If you are interested, join the [http://www.clustermonkey.net/mailman/listinfo/limulus_announce Limulus Announce List] or the Twitter feed.

    5 '''March 24, 2011:''' New annotated views of the [wiki:LimulusCase Limulus Case] 
    65 
    76'''March 23, 2011:''' We are evaluating Sandy Bridge (i5-2400S) systems now that the motherboards are fixed. There is now an announce mailing list (see above).

    9 '''January 18, 2011:''' Software is almost done. Expect the repository to go up ''any day now''. Check out the automatic power control test in the [wiki:LimulusSoftware Limulus Software Page]. The [wiki:LimulusCase new case] needs a few small adjustments which should be done by the end of February.

    11 '''Novemeber 10, 2010:''' I will be at [http://sc10.supercomputing.org/ SC10 ] '''booth number 1731''' with the improved case. From the outside it looks the same, I added a new and better RAID drive case (4 drives in 3 bays). The new one (Xclio SS034) has a key locks on the drives and blue LED's to match the rest of the case (pictures coming soon). Using a 4 drive arrangement allows for either RAID drives for the head node or a drive for each node. The final design will include an SSD boot drive plus 4 drives in a raid 10 configuration that could easily get you to 4 TB of storage. If you are at the show, stop by for demo and peak inside. If you are not attending, keep an eye on this page for more updates. The software distribution is almost done as well!

    1310'''September 14, 2010:''' The improved case is almost done (really). Who knew sheet metal could be so much fun. Lot's of RPMS are done. I also decided on the next system to build with the new sheet metal. I'm going to use AMD quad-core 910e (2.6 GHz @ 65 Watts) for the three nodes and a six-core AMD 1055T (2.8GHz @ 125 Watts) for the head node. That will be 18 cores, one box, one power supply, cool, quiet, and fast. Should have it done in October time frame.

    1512'''August 5, 2010:''' The improved case is almost done. We have been moving on both hardware and software fronts and expect some announcements this fall. There are also a bunch of Xeon 3400 series Micro ATX motherboards now available that support dual Intel GigE and ECC memory. (Supermicro, Asus and Gigabyte).

    1814'''April 30, 2009:''' I have been busy with the hardware aspects of the project. The goal is to try and fit  [wiki:NorbertLimulus Norbert Limulus Cluster] now fits in a single case measuring 23x20x8.5 inches (58x51x21 cm). It uses a single power supply, is very power efficient, quiet, and looks rather cool. There will be more real soon. The first version will use quad-core CPUs for a total of 16 cores per system. Also, there has been some concern about using non-ECC memory. Based on current memory technology, actual tests, and some research papers I do not think this is going to be a concern for most users. More information when the tests are done.
