I enjoy very much reading this periodic message.

One suggestion : would it be possible to add some other variables. I mean
it's already a neat thing to compute the Gflop price. But it's not
everything. Example of thing i'd like to know : the speed of the genome
deciphering, when the telomerase can be treated not to shorten,
gain on life expectancy, etc... (kind of stuff people over forty might start
to worry about ...).
