Now, before I show you the cool new toy, I have to point out why I will never trust SGI / Cray again.
I had 100 shares of SGI. July 5th 2006 they announced this:
SGI's current shareholders will receive no recovery under the plan.
I thought WTF, so I emailed them. Lisa Pistacchio emailed me back:
Upon confirmation of the Plan of Reorganization, the current SGI stock will be cancelled.
For more information, please go to www.sgi.com/reorg
My regrets. I am a shareholder, too.
I thought WTF?
So what happened? They dropped my stocks, didn't reimburse me a dime, then immediately started selling stocks again. It's like if you loaned your friend money because you believed in and like them; then one day they walk up to you and say "Fuck you! I'm never paying you back biotch! BTW Can you loan me some more money?"
So, while I will never trust the company again, this does look cool (if expensive). Of course, I'd rather it be AMD and OpenSolaris, but hey....
