A sandbox for playing with the coolest CPU around.

For quite sometime now I've been giving these presentations on how the layman's understanding of the Moore's Law is dead and how the world is embracing the multicore (CMT) model. The usual question I get whenever I convince people that this is, in fact, the case seems to be: "But how can I jumpstart my foray into this magical world of parallel computing?" My usual answer to that has been: get your hands on the only 8 core CPU available today in the market -- UltraSPARC T1 by applying for the Try'n'Buy program.

Well, now I've got an even better answer for all of the OpenSource developers out there: you can ssh into one of these things: ssh.sundemo.ru!

That's right. Apply for the account on the Sun Studio Demo Server and hack away!

P.S. Even thought the form is in Russian, here's what the individual fields mean:
  1. First name
  2. Last name
  3. E-Mail
  4. Address
  5. Phone
The last one is a pretty generic EULA check box.

The site seems down, any clues ?
