It's not 100% definite yet, but I have been pushing very hard for the use of 37
Pentium-90 and Pentium-166 machines running NT which are idle > 90% of the day
(and the other 10% are just used for telnet, word processing, etc.) It looks
now like this is going to happen.

This should be enough computers (in addition to my P-150, P-90 and a couple
other random computers here on campus) to make a little dent, at least.

We'll see what happens--I may be able to scrounge up 20 Linux Pentium 166's as
well to check keys between 10PM and 8AM... THAT would be nice. I just need to
get the computer science department interested enough to let me use the cycles
(as it is, they don't allow logins except for locally although they are
networked, and the building that they are in is only open 8am to 10pm).
