For those who don't know what VMPI is: http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Vmpi Basically, it allows for networked compiles. Valve has it installed on every computer in their office and so what normally takes half an hour to compile can be done in a matter of minutes. Unfortunately, if you read that article, it states that VRAD over VMPI is totally broken. I was thinking, if they end up fixing this (read: if we annoy them enough about it) we're all friends here who want to help people get their maps running. So why not start up a network so people can compile faster using other peoples' idle cpus? There's a nice tool for setting it up here: http://exp-softworks.com/2008/12/07/senc-source-extended-net-compiler/ What do you guys think?
