Su­per IT grunt for BOM Mar­riage lasts month

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

AN AMER­I­CAN com­pany will build the latest su­per­com­puter for the Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy.

Cray Inc has suc­cess­fully ten­dered to build BOM’s eighth su­per­com­puter since 1988, for $ 77 mil­lion. It will come into ser­vice by mid- 2016. En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Greg Hunt said yesterday it will have about 16 times the com­put­ing power of the ex­ist­ing model and will greatly im­prove the BOM’s abil­ity to pro­vide fore­casts and weather warn­ings.

“This will en­able the bureau to is­sue fore­casts and warn­ings more of­ten, and with greater cer­tainty and pre­ci­sion than ever be­fore,” Mr Hunt said. Cray is a su­per- com­put­ing firm that was es­tab­lished in 1972. GABI Grecko and Ge­of­frey Edel­sten ( pic­tured) have bro­ken up af­ter lit­tle more than a month of mar­riage.

Grecko has posted a photo of her ring­less hand on In­sta­gram, lament­ing the split.

“No longer Mrs Edel­sten,” she said, adding a bro­ken heart emoti­con.

She has also changed her name on In­sta­gram back to Gabi Grecko. The pair wed in Mel­bourne on June 11. Grecko told her In­sta­gram fol­low­ers last month she suf­fered a mis­car­riage af­ter fall­ing in her apart­ment.
