Figure out if you can run your problem on your university computational
cluster or something.
I'm not so sure that a cluster will make -gllamm- or even Stata faster. A few months ago there was a discussion about performance on this list and Alan Riley replied "Apple's dual G5, for an application like Stata which only makes use of a single processor at a time, will not run gllamm (or any other Stata code) significantly faster than the same computer with only a single processor would" (http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2004-04/msg00471.html). The fastest computer at that time to run Stata code was the Opteron running 64-bit Linux and 64-bit Stata.
