Upgrade of the T3E

The Cray T3E at NSC has been upgraded with 32 additional processors with 256 Mbytes each.

The upgrade was done on the 1 - 3 December 1997. Since it involved rewiring of the computer it required a lot of time, and the T3E was completely unavailable for use from the morning of Monday December 1 until the late afternoon of Wednesday December 3.

We regret any inconvenience to our users, but trust that you will appreciate the advantage of the expanded resources.
