I could definitely build a really cool 2^6 hypercube with firewire hardware 
but last time I checked there weren't any free TCP/IP drivers for firewire 
that would support the kind of routing I'd like (could you have something 
like CT routing in software?). Anybody's got the latest scoop on firewire for 
linux networking?
