I'd hoped it would get some of you going. ;) We're using 15 machines (48
UltraSparc processors, 12 SuperSparc) and we're excited that we're able to
help out. Of course, we're extremely upset that a bit-splice method won't
be available til Solaris 2.6. We could really be a contender then. ;)

I was prodded by a university ( to begin this and am hoping to do
my share (of prodding) to some of the other Oklahoma universities. Heck,
maybe we could even begin looking at this at a state level. Ah, probably
too difficult to manage with the logs. Oh well, if I get really ambitious
I may add ~40 more SuperSparcs. I believe the key is to brag about your
ranking to someone with decent facilities, believe got me going.
