I should have my quad up and running by then, so I personally should be able to contribute more than my puny dualcore.

Gary, will you be available that weekend?

We should have enough servers available to be able to spread the load of the rally around somewhat optimally--we could load some 1st Drive work into IB5000 as was previously discussed, and Gary and I are also running G4000 which is up and running stably. And if Lennart can participate then, if necessary, I'm sure he can run L6 to put his machines on. (Though, of course, if we've got enough servers running otherwise, then we may not even need to bother with L6.)

Sounds great! Let's do it! My guess is that port 400 will be enough all by itself up to 150 cores. But to be safe, we should run both ports 400 and 5000. Since we know IronBits servers to be quite robust, that should be plenty. But if we could get in excess of 200 cores running...well, let me dream a little... Perhaps in that case we might need a 3rd.
