This brings out a question I know I asked before and I can weagley remember
getting an answer to it, just not exactly what it was :).

I also have some 486's, simple pentiums, a couple of Dec stations etc...
I even think I can get me a old VAX1 if I really want to! (but I don't,
it's _HUGE_ and _LOUD_!! :) Can ALL these machines be a part of the same cluster?

I just have a big aversion to throwing (working) things away, and why not
putting them to (good) use if possible? :)
