I think it would be nice to get that 9260 PPro 200 machine that intel made
recently cracking on it :). You could run 9260 copies of deschall (one per
processor). If anyone wants to read about it, there is an intel press
release at www.intel.com/pressroom/archive/releases/cn1217fs.htm

It runs at 1.8 teraflops, has 9,260, 200MHz PPro 200 processors, 573 gigs of
ram and 2.25 terabytes of disk space. I'd say that would make a nice little
deschall machine :).
