This sounds wicked fun!! It would be cool to build a
big cluster of PCs and play about with some of this.

You may want to check out
for details on the network render; it is still a work
in progress tool, but we could check it out from the
CVS. ;)

Have you guys got any space where you set these
machines up? It might be cool as a LUG project.
Incidentally, I am trying to get my hands on a bunch
of old Uni machines that I may be able to swing your
way - would you be interested in that?

All of this gives me the incentive to try and find
somewhere in Wolves to set up a machine room full of
old machines. Ho hum...
