Note the quotes, since this isn't much of a "networking" solution. I'm just wondering. Say you have one recent, up-to-date computer and you have five or six 486's you're ready to throw out. They're all in working condition, but you don't feel the need to use the older computers; neither will anyone take them. Trash heap, right? Well, say you get this "brilliant" idea. How about if you somehow hooked up all of them so that they could act as one computer? I recently thought about that scenario and I'm wondering if there is such a solution that will allow you to connect them so that their hard drives act as one, CPU's act as one big CPU, et cetera. Is it possible? Just wondering here. Also, how would you instruct the computers to do that? Would you need to write some new protocols or something? --Long Live the Female Messiah.
