Hello all,

I'm new to the list and just thought I'd introduce myself, as will probably be
posting to the list a bit.  I'm a system administrator for a Beowulf cluster at
UW-Milwaukee.  It's a 22 node 2.4GHz Intel cluster running Linux that is
dedicated to studying clouds (using wrf and COAMPS (MPI based software)).  It's
a student job, and a lot of fun.  I'm a Computer Science major, and have all
the Computer Science course done (just have a few math classes left).

I'm starting to think about Grad school and Master Thesis stuff, though that is
a little way off.  Along this vein, if anyone has any suggestions as to hot
research topics a CS major with access to a few spare clock cycles Beowulf
cluster might be interested in, please feel free to send them to me. ;)

I've only been admin-ing the cluster for about a year, so I don't know how much
I'll be able to help people with questions...  But I may throw an idea out once
in a while.  I suppose here I may be asking more than answering the questions,
as it seems a lot of you have quite a bit of experience with larger clusters.
