I noticed on page 92 (right column, top of page) of the June 2002 issue [see Richard Ferri's article “The OSCAR Revolution”]: “Workload management: Portable Batch Systems (PBS) from Veridian and Maui Scheduler (developed by Maui High Times Computing Center).” Many of my research colleagues have been closely involved with MHPCC, and I have spent some time there. We are all laughing our a**** off! I sent the following message to some of my research colleagues:
In this month's Linux Journal (June 2002), there is an article on the OSCAR open-source cluster application effort. There is a bullet item list of tools and features on page 92, but this one really caught my eye: “Workload management: Portable Batch Systems (PBS) from Veridian and Maui Scheduler (developed by Maui High Times Computing Center).” That is not a typo in my e-mail. The article really calls it the “Maui HIGH TIMES Computing Center”. No doubt, the author intended to give new meaning to the phrase “smoking fast system performance”.
Since then, e-mails have been flying. The “suits” might not have much sense of humor, but we folks in the trenches love it. Keep up the good work.
Richard replies: That was completely unintentional on my part—I really thought I had read that name somewhere, and I thought it was a very laid-back Maui attitude. Of course, after the article came out in print, and I reread it, I realized my error, and I couldn't find any references to “Maui High Times” except for completely unrelated stuff, you know—I hope everyone maintains their sense of humor over my faux pas.
