Is there any? How did you use -fork?

Obviously, I re-worked the MPI code in inc.c while adding --node, and I never tested the effect of my changes on MPI (we didn't intend to use MPI in the contest, and I think we didn't use it). Someone reported that MPI worked for him anyway (after the contest), but that might not be reliable info. > I guess the -node option and MPI > should be unified and use the same code in most places. This will help > debugging MPI a lot too. I agree, and in fact they are unified in j5c4's inc.c. So I don't know why MPI broke for you. Alexander
