    We just got a brand spanking new Xserve here at work (dual 1.33, 2GB RAM :D) and we'll be running F@H on it until it goes "live".

    We should see some WUs come in pretty fast!

    Any chance you could post some frame times for that once it's up and running? I'd be interested in knowing how it measures up.

    It would be cool to see the stats - and what's the config of the XServe?
