Eh, you're allowed to be double-plus cranky. ;->
I have some idea of what running such an HPC setup entails, having been
part of a team that built and tested (but did _not_ administer) what was
at the time of deployment the #2 entry on the Top500 supercomputer list,
a 1024-node monster based on 4U quad-Itanium2 Intel Tiger4 boxes. I'm
sure I could still dissassemble and debug that thing in my sleep, though
I'm trying hard to forget.

Please indulge. XTeddy will help with the cream and sugar, if you
happen to lean that way. Me, I go for the Agent Cooper effect:
