Throw 40 machines at a project, reap the results: I broke into the top 1000 on That wasn't even using all of the machines at my disposal. Lets see, what machines am I using?

  • i386
    • 1.2GHz Athlon (Windows ME)
    • 900MHz Athlon (OpenBSD 2.9) (2 total)
    • 800MHZ Duron (FreeBSD 4.3)
    • 500MHz Pentium III (Windows 2000 Server)
    • 366MHz Celeron (OpenBSD 2.9)
    • 266MHz Pentium (OpenBSD 2.9)
    • 200MHz Pentium (OpenBSD 2.9)
  • PPC
    • 733 MHz G4 (Mac OS X Server 10.0.4)
    • 533 MHz Dual G4 (Mac OS X Server 10.0.4)
    • 500 MHz G4 (Mac OS 9.1) (8 total)
    • 400 MHz G3 (Mac OS 9.1) (5 total)
    • 266 MHz G3 (Mac OS 9.1) (20 total)
That's 43 machines and 18.25GHz so far. There are still 8 more iMacs (2.13GHz) that I am not using yet. They won't help much, but it all adds up...
