you think i can use the same directory, with two copies of the app running?
or use separate folders with the secondary machine using aliases over the
network to the server's buff files?  the two won't conflict??

seems the way with least maintenance - i took the first suggestion of
moving the files around over the network - set the buffs to 400 each - but
this may get tiresome after several days..

along with a processor upgrade, my block output is now quadrupled..
