Well, flops are floating point operations, I believe. We have a
zero-flop computer, since none of the clients are doing any
floating-point ops for the challenge.

The teraflop computer uses 4800 nodes, each of which has two
Pentium Pro 200 procs. I think we've already done the math to
find out how many keys it could do.
