Well, I think there are a few IBM System/360 and System/370 machines
out there, I think. Why not just use them in 1401 emulation mode (if
they have that option)? Should help as well.

...What do you mean just use them natively? But that's not nearly as funny!

Probably would still be a bit slow though. Maybe we could convince all
the people doing mining to just not mine one block and let the 1401s,
and hardware emulations of said architecture mine it? You know, for
the shits and giggles.
