  What is Condor?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Should Condor detect that a machine is no longer available (such as a key press detected), in many circumstances Condor is able to transparently produce a checkpoint and migrate a job to a different machine which would otherwise be idle.
Condor does not require a shared file system across machines - if no shared file system is available, Condor can transfer the job's data files on behalf of the user, or Condor may be able to transparently redirect all the job's I/O requests back to the submit machine.
Condor is the product of the Condor Research Project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison), and it was first installed as a production system in the UW-Madison Department of Computer Sciences nearly 15 years ago.

  Condor - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The condor is a native of South America, where it is confined to the region of the Andes, from the Straits of Magellan to 4° north latitude, - the largest examples, it is said, being found about the volcano of Cayambi, situated on the equator.
By preference the condor feeds on carrion, but it does not hesitate to attack sheep, goats and deer, and for this reason it is hunted down by the shepherds, who, it is said, train their dogs to look up and bark at the condors as they fly overhead.
Although the favourite haunts of the condor are at the level of perpetual snow, yet it rises to a much greater height, Humboldt having observed it flying over Chimborazo at a height of over 23,000 ft. On wing the movements of the condor, as it wheels in majestic circles, are remarkably graceful.

Condors are the national bird of Bolivia, Colombia, Chile and Peru and play important roles in the folklore and mythology of South America, similar to the role the Bald Eagle plays in North America.

 Crimes Of War Project > Expert Analysis
Condor was a covert intelligence and operations system that enabled the Latin American military states to hunt down, seize, and execute political opponents across borders.
Condor assassinations in Buenos Aires were carried out against General Carlos Prats, former Commander-in-Chief of the Chilean army; nationalist ex-president of Bolivia Juan Jose Torres; two Uruguayan legislators known for their opposition to the Uruguayan military regime, Zelmar Michelini and Hector Gutierrez Ruiz.
In 1978, for example, the CIA wrote that by July 1976 "the Agency was receiving reports that Condor planned to engage in `executive action' outside the territory of member countries." In fact, the documentary evidence shows that the CIA was fully aware of such capabilities and operations years earlier.

The idea behind the Condor is simple - a student's first attempts to solo launch a hang glider are easiest, and least intimidating if they occur on a small, shallow slope, at a very low groundspeed.
Most instructors report that the 330 Condor is "blown out" in winds of more than eight mph, due to the difficulty in ground handling such a large area glider in any significant wind.
Neither the Condor 330 or the Condor 225 is HGMA certified or certifiable, and neither is intended for utility class operation.
