Back in the early days of RC5-56, when the client source code was still
being freely distributed and *anyone* could play, some of us on the
rsacrack at vex.net team had a bit of a contest to see who could get the
slowest box onto our local stats page. I was down pretty low for a bit
with a 16MHz 386, then some wise ass brought up a Sun 2/60. Never seen
numbers so small.
I hate to say it, but there's a *reason* your 3/60's are in the basement
doing nothing. Give them something to do, and the'll still be doing
pretty much nothing. Four of them running RC5 would still be slower
than a 386/40. Best to spend your time recruiting a single person with
a 486. :-)
I have an old electric typewriter here, but I don't know where to find
a C compiler for it....
