"I have fulfilled my function"

Britain Scotland's new supercomputer is the High End Computing Terascale Resources (HECToR):

t represents the equivalent of approximately 12,000 desktop systems.

The £113m project will run for six years and will enable scientists to develop life-saving drugs and model climate change and epidemic patterns.

Researchers said it was hoped Hector would play a "key role" in keeping scientists at the forefront of their fields of research.

The supercomputer is based at the Edinburgh University's advanced computing facility.

An Edinburgh University spokesman said: "Adding the power of supercomputing simulation to the route of exploration and discovery has moved science to another level.

"Hector continues this process by taking high-performance computing up yet another gear."
So you're saying that the BBC, digg, and publictechnology.com all missed it?

A British supercomputer named Hector and nobody (save a single engadget commenter noted the eerie similarity??
