In the old days, computer programs ran on big centrally located computers that belonged to universities or big corporations, not on personal desktops or laptops. It just occurred to me that this might still be possible. I'd gladly pay a modest sum to run a few of my simulations on something that was, say, 10-100 times faster than the MacBook Pro I'm typing this on. I tried googling "buy time on fast computer" and other permutations, but couldn't find anything (lots of "When is it time to buy a new fast computer" pages).
I think that there must be places to do this. Perhaps one of my occasional readers will know. But, in case you don't, I'm going to send an email to the evoldir list, which reaches thousands of evolutionary biologists.
