Also just wanted to mention, for those using the EC2 cloud, that during
SciPy I also added a new plugin to the StarCluster project
(http://web.mit.edu/starcluster) that will automatically configure and
launch ipcluster on EC2:

http://github.com/jtriley/StarCluster/blob/master/starcluster/plugins/ipcluster.py

The ipcluster plugin will be released in the next version coming out soon.

<plug>
For those unfamiliar, StarCluster creates/configures scientific
computing clusters on EC2. The clusters launched have MPI and Sun Grid
Engine as well as NumPy/SciPy installations compiled against an
ATLAS/LAPACK that has been optimized for the 8-core instance types.</plug>

Thanks,
