Super Computer in Wyoming?? Nice!

I hope this project gets approved, win for Wyoming! I agree though that the picture of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department makes little sense, is there a reason for the picture?

I'm not sure what the deal

I'm not sure what the deal is with the G&F picture. I think perhaps Shane was a bit confused when he posted this story... I'll try to get in touch with him to get it fixed.

Still trying to comprehend what the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has to do with this story. Nice picture... do you even read the stories before putting photos with them?
