Stouder also mentioned that he had a lawyer in the beginning, but is currently defending himself and trying to educate the legal system on the concept of open source and sharing. Sadly, McGaugh, a much respected and liked contributor to the HPC community took his own life in in December of 2004. Rocky was a constant participant in open conversations about the means and methods of HPC clusters on the famed Beowulf Mailing List. When I mentioned this story to people they often ask "what can I do to help?" I mention that if they know of a lawyer that can assist Stouder, that would be useful. - Douglas Eadline, ClusterMonkey
