Even Super Heroes are Curious about Project Blackbox

Its possible that you have not heard of GEO Man yet. He is quietly acquiring CPU and storage resources in an effort to defend the world from...well, bad stuff I guess. Here is GEO Man appropriately visiting Project Blackbox Tour in San Antonio:
I discussed the topic of super heroes (and villians) in a very early blog. You see, super heroes and super villians have to be careful about building permanent data centers. A super-hero data center should be quicker to deploy than a normal data center and quicker to tear down as well.
Using standard super hero powers, like laser-eyes to carve a flat pad out of a mountain and super cold breath so you don't need a chiller (CPU and storage don't mind if your breath is bad...just that it can take the place of a chiller, I would imagine any of your normal super-villians would have super bad cold breath), a super hero can quickly get their Project Blackbox contained resources up and running to save the world from...well, bad stuff.
Seriously though, the Project Blackbox North America / Canada Tour spent this week in Texas. We were at the GEOINT 2007 Government Conference, thus partially explaining GEO man.
Here is another shot of Project Blackbox behind the sandwich line And, no, the drinks were not kept cold in one of open racks in the tour unit. While the air circulating through the container tends to depend on the settings on the chiller itself, the variance is from 20 degrees Celsius or so up to about 40 degrees Celsius (68 to 104 Farenheit for myself and all of my U.S. friends). This is too warm for most beer (except for maybe Coors).
Next week the U.S. Tour is making the l-o-n-g journey up to our friends to the North, in Calgary A.B. (Alberta) and we'll be open for tours on November 1st.
