How fascinating that LOFAR is using a cluster for phased array 
processing.  That ties in quite nicely with my research work (which is 
basically trying to do the same thing, except in space). I'm faced with 
many of the problems that LOFAR is, namely the need to self calibrate the 
responses of the antennas and electronics.   This list truly IS useful, as 
well as entertaining.
