Might be a long-shot, but the potential upside is incredible!  Worth $100 or so.

Being the geek I am, I've created a site to help coordinate the efforts of Graphical Processor Units (GPUs) owners to help with the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS).

Please see

And if you have a GPU and aren't yet playing with us, please consider doing so....

So, I just brought version 2.1 of the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS) Visualisation Tool on-line.

Here's another video of humans doing amazing things... In this case it's two guys "free-climbing" to the top of a 1768 foot tower...

I used to climb towers myself. The highest I've ever free-climbed is 150 feet. Not much difference if you fell, but the higher you are the more time you have to think about maybe you should have taken that desk job....

One of my very favourite artists is Laurie Anderson. She's just so eclectic and brilliant.
