I'm an evil megalomaniac and I want to dominate the world.But I need a
supercomputer for that.

How can I build a deadly supercomputer of doom for my sinister plans

Excellent question Dan.

First off, let me state at the outset that I'm against ruling the planet.
It's a bad idea, as the planet can do very well without our "help" (but
then, you did say you were evil didn't you). However, a computer of such
power as you describe would be marvelous. So let me commend you for your
forward thinking, and technological ambition.

That said, see:

You'll never be able to afford a Cray, but while you're bitterly lamenting
in your own private hell of dispare, yet nevertheless maintaining dreams
of success, fame, fortune, and personal accolade, perhaps that fire in
your belly can be turned from evil to good, and the betterment of mankind:

Goldfinger and Dr. No tried that and James Bond came to the rescue every
time. Beware!

Use Linux. Microsoft won't let anybody else rule the planet
using Windows. And you don't want the Blue Planet of Death.

have you considered a Sinclair zx81? I have found it to be vast improvement
on my old zx80 with its extra 1k of ram.

Well, make sure it doesn't have a winmodem, 'cos it won't work in Linux....

Ever notice how Bin Laden, a super rich Saudi with visions of impressing
his own perverted brand of Islamic domination by means of terror and
spectacular displays of mass murder, sounds a lot like a James Bond movie plot?

Ah yes, but they had old computers, as big as wardrobes, with tapes whizzing
back and forth, paper tape spewing out and monochrome terminals, which go beep
beep beep when they print characters on the screen.

Actually, the best way IMO would be to convince all the major ISPs to use
Windows. Then the world as we know it will self destruct, leaving you and your
linux box free to take over.

Got a job for me there?

wait 4 more years, and everyone will have a supercomputer in every box
so sez IBM & Toshiba about thier new Cell chip which is said to be able
to process 10 instructions at a time.
