Response to: an important piece is missing.....

That's not what anonymous 1 meant ... statistically there is a possibility that there will be an error in RAM that flips a bit randomly (caused by a stray cosmic ray or whatever). ECC RAM has an extra chip on the memory module to compensate for that possibility. The longer the calculation and the more computers involved the more likely that a RAM error will occur. It would be interesting to know how they do resolve the problem.
