Right, that I'd tried already.  I'm sitting here in the lab at work,
surrounded by TurboLasers, a GS or two, and a huge pile of Alpha
desktops, plus some 2100's and 2000's ...  It would be awfully nice to
put an Erlang node on every single one of them and use them as a
distributed compute farm ...

I'd settle for putting a node on the handfull of Alpha/Linux-SuSE 6.4
boxen I have.  Not as impressive, but certainly not worth shaking a
stick at.  :)
