Invitation to the wake for the QCDOC

A short obituary of the QCDOCThe QCDOC was born two and a half years late, to parents who had already divorced. The QCDOC was a sickly child. It would only work for brief periods of time (20 minutes). However it was guarded by jealous and proud parents. After a great deal of pain for its carers, the QCDOC started to be slightly useful, just as the money to keep it in electricity ran out. So on Tuesday 31st March we celebrate the death of the QCDOC, although technically the QCDOC is still alive, as some people are unwilling to switch off the life support machine. We are still waiting to see whether the QCDOC will be survived by any dependents (new computers).
