Excerpt from the Forward of The Missing Manual:

"Desktop Cray is the world’s first supercomputer emulator running over the internet. It runs on all computers that can access the world wide web over any browser that you choose, and to top it off, at any connection speed.

For the first time, the average user has access to massive amounts of computational power, for any application, at any time.

Whether you are a nerd or a housewife, freshmen student or top UNIX geek, you too can benefit from Desktop Cray’s simple and easy-to-learn interface and unleash the power, and the speed of your own Cray... at a fraction of the cost and bother.

But Desktop Cray puts an end to all that. Simply click on the Desktop Cray website and the power of a world-class Supercomputer is at your fingertips.

This manual will help you become a “Power User” of what is the world’s greatest “Power App”.

Imagine what you can accomplish with your desktop computer now that you finally have... “All the speed you will ever need”.
