Well as I said, we want to cluster this app and make it scale up AND
highly available; OpenSSI rocks for that but only runs on a handful of
OSes, all of which are *expressly* unsupported.  In other words, it's not
just a matter of needing the company's blessing for tech support (which we
do), it just won't work period.

Oh well, perhaps UserMode Linux will do the job.



Have you ever lied, no matter the color?  I have.  Have you ever stolen
anything, no matter the value?  I have.  Have you ever lusted?  I have. 
Jesus said whoever looks at a woman with lustful intent has already
committed adultery with her in his heart.

We are lying, thieving, adulterers at heart and will face judgement one day.

There is good news for us!  "God shows his love for us in that while we
were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Since, therefore, we have now
been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the
wrath of God." (Romans 5:8,9)
