Right now I am in the process of getting a new OLPI, and my plan is to leave
the old laptop in the Helsinki office, contributing to our small IceCC
cluster. Andrés' EWS is running here, so it will help a bit.

It would be nice if Claudio (hello, Claudio!) could bring his build machine
from home to the office. That would help even more, and maybe we could run
one more EWS here.

Another idea is considering buying more build machines. How do people feel
about this? Also, if we aren't running an EWS in the Coruña office where there
are several powerful build machines, we should do that. Probably Carlos López
knows what's the situation there.
