What about Gene? We need an open source guru to help
us when its time to port over whatever we derive. Shall we
use microsloth excel as a development tool with the long
range goal of creating an open source free for anyone sim
tool? What about Adrian Tymes? There are other
valuable contributors as well.

This is an exercise that is as much about spontaneous
creation of a software tool as it is about space exploration.
The mersenne prime search is an example of a software
tool created entirely by a group of volunteers, with no
money changing hands, being run by a few thousand
CPU cycle contributors. That project is succeeding
beyond the wildest imagination of its creators. spike
