5 centuries ago...

I just queued up jobs for a physics simulation that are 5 compute-centuries long:

6 jobs x 11.5 hours x 16384 nodes x 4 cores/node = 5.16 centuries.

I'm expecting the runs to be finished in about a week

If this ran on a single core and I wanted it to be finishing in about a week, I would have had to start them in the year 1495 (the most interesting wikipedia note for that year is Friar John Cor records the first known batch of Scotch whisky).

  1. if you wait 18 months you can do the simulation in 3.5 days.
