Ok, thanks for all the replies.

Does anybody know of a use for a cluster? I know I'm going to build one, 
and I have no programming experience. My thought was that I would just 
calculate Pi out infinitely, but that doesn't look like it will work. 
The nodes will be cyrix x86 processors w/ clock speeds of 133 MHz. They 
each have about 3 GB of HD space. Thoughts on something that I can 
calculate and log in a MySQL database?

I think computer viruses should count as life. 
I think it says something about human nature 
that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. 
We've created life in our own image.
