I will be collecting old computers, refurbishing them, installing Linux, and giving them to deserving students in the area, who may not be able to afford them on their own. I already have some corporate backers, so I need to get this ball rolling. I could use the help of fellow Slashdotters to come up with a good name for my new non-profit charity here in Aurora, CO." top

chuckymonkey writes "I was just browsing the website for the Top500 supercomputers in the world and found no mention of the Folding@Home project. In my mind the project is just a variation on cluster technology that takes advantage of the internet and multiple types of computers to make its distributed cluster. I was curious to see whether or not any slashdotters think that this project should be included in the list. While it does not have a central location it is producing over 700 teraflops of computing power (as of 20 July 2007), which is more than many on the Top500 list." Link to Original Source top

Keep in mind that its basic needs actually aren't that much different from our own, however its wants may differ wildly."

I'm making a T1 test bed system for my company and I need to know if anyone knows the pinout for connecting two Larscom AccessT-100 CSU/DSUs together. I want two of them to be connected to together via null modem to simulate a T1 connection. We're using this for testing of routers and switches as well as pre-config for said devices before we put them in full op. I trust that some fellow/.er out there has played with these before. I looked through the old manuals that we have and even googled the heck out of it to no avail.
