At 10,000 boards/second former corresponds to about 2 billion years of compute time, and the latter just two years. Just [...]

So what to do with all that power? One option was to compute statistics on random boards. Another is to hunt for the holy grail of Boggle: the highest possible scoring Boggle board. The next few posts will be devoted to the search for this board. [...]
