Here's a question.. will the server fork off children so that we can
use of technologies like openmosix? As a gentoo guy, you should see the
incredible greatness that would acchieve. ;) 60 processors are better
than 2, imo.
If so, it would be amazing to get a bunch of nerds together - even on
different continents - to create ipsec tunnels to their home servers and
share time to create one mammoth bf2 server.
