Hi Everyone

It was great to attend the Beowulf Bash at SC19.  I caught up with many
friends (made some new) and talked geek shit for hours.  I did have a
slight hang-over the next day.

I also spoke to Donald and thanked him for what he created.

The Beowulf movement has been one of the most significant movements in the
HPC and Linux world.

It has
  * inspired people to take ownership of their own hardware
  * helped define and promote Linux
  * support and promoted free and open standards
  * given us free and open network drivers (thanks Donald)
  * allowed us to build some of the largest compute engines in world
  * generated companies and businesses
  * driven the creation of thousands of jobs
  * defined many generations of super computers

and so much more.

Let us all get behind the beowulf bash @ SC20, make it an even bigger event.

Let us use the event to remember the heritage and not just use it as a name.

I would like to especially thank the sponsors
