But I DO happen to have 5 Arduino Uno Ethernets here in my desk drawer, and I have a 5 port hub/switch as well.  The switch claims 1 Gbps, so I probably won't have to worry about saturating its bisection bandwidth. Or constructing some sort of toroidal fabric.  Funny, I don't see an implementation of MPIduino anywhere though.)

I'm still gunning for a 8-node Parallella cluster.
