I worked at <a href="http://fnal.gov">Fermilab</a> for about 5 years. I didn't do the programming of the actual scientific algorithms, but worked on some of the supporting tools and libraries. Also wrote most of the hardware diagnostics for a custom-built massively parallel supercomputer they had there about 10 years ago.
The years just pass like trains. I wave, but they don't slow down.
