I'll be having the reverse experience -- this will be my third 
Supercomputing (and hopefully Beobash, provided customer meetings don't 
consume my evenings as well) but first one as primarily an exhibitor 
rather than a poster or technical session presenter.  It will be very 
interesting to spend more time in the expo area than I usually do, 
especially for setup and take-down as I'm arriving mid-day Saturday to 
get things going at the Panasas booth.

In case anybody is interested, or just hopelessly bored, I will be 
giving an Exhibitor Forum talk about a brand new storage platform I've 
been lucky enough to serve as lead architect on at Panasas over the last 
few years.  All fellow 'wulfers are very welcome to give a listen if you 
have 30 spare minutes to burn:


I'm also currently busily tuning an IOR demo of a rack of that new gear, 
which will be run on repeat at our booth, and made to look entirely too 
pretty for HPC by our marketing team.  I try to convince them every year 
that black on white console is the most spellbinding appearance for real 
HPC workloads, but it has yet to catch on.

I look forward to bumping into as many of you as I can next week! 
Thanks to Doug and co. as always for leading the charge on the Beowulf 
experience at SC.
