Many of us by now are using this marvelous Hungarian's optimisations, now he's got a nice mention in the New Scientist (online at least). Have a look at the article: Programmer speeds search for gravitational waves.

Alas, it didn't arrive in time for this week's print edition (cover date 20 May).

Maybe next week, if they can optimise those old steam-driven presses....

More likely TeX-driven than steam-driven. It is far easier to publish on a Web page than on paper, but paper lasts more (if made with the right stuff). Having worked at Mondadori Publishing House I know that printing has its deadlines.
