The organization was going to set up some big iron for doing this with Loci. 
We were hoping to get a computer donated from Compaq, IBM, or whoever.  We
also have a pretty hefty network available now: a fiber -optic T3 backbone
that we can run some 100baseT lines off of.

Server crashes would of course be bad, but with the right equipment, we could
get 4 nines (99.99%) uptime.

We could also give away the source code for setting up a central server and
have others set up their own.
