Henry Neeman, the Director of the OU Supercomputing Center for Education & Research (OSCER), sent us the following announcement. If you didn’t make the tour last year, then you should go and check it out. If you can’t make it today, Dr. Neeman leads tours every month or so, and we’ll let you know when we hear of the next one.
Supercomputing tour TODAY Tue Sep 8 4:00pm at Merrick Computing Center.
If you haven’t taken a supercomputing tour yet, then I strongly
urge you to do so.
In our experience, people who have taken the tour understand

The tour will be at Merrick Computer Center, a one story orange
brick building at the corner of Newton and Westheimer on OU’s
North Base. The address is 1610 Newton Dr.
Simplest (but slightly longer) directions from campus:
Take Boyd westbound to Berry (toward I-35). Turn right (northbound)

Go a few blocks until you come to intersection at Westheimer.
Merrick will be on the far left corner.
Park in either the front (south, Robinson-facing) lot or the
back (north) lot. Parking is free.
Come around to the front (south, Robinson-facing) entrance. We’ll
meet in the lobby and then go together to the machine room for
The Alameda East/N21 Green CART route departs the South Oval every
hour on the hour and reaches the corner of Berry and Westheimer at
roughly 26 minutes after the hour. On arrival, walk eastbound (with
Robinson on your right) a few blocks to Merrick (on your left):
