The morning of the first tournament day

The tournament starts today!
I think MP-Fuego is as ready as it can be. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the connection to Hungabee holds up. Hungabee is a large 2048 core machine in Canada. Last year we used it for this competition, and again this year we were allowed to "take over" the whole machine for the event. Thanks Compute Canada, Westgrid and the fantastic people that work there!

I'm still in Tokyo, will go to Chofu in a few minutes. It is Saturday morning so the trains should not be too crowded. It is a bright morning, and I can see mount Fuji from my hotel window. A rare and beautiful sight from this far away!

I will try to keep posting about the results during the competition.
