Is it possible to render the frames in a backwards order?

Hi!

I have two computers that I’m going to use for rendering a intense animation scene with ambient occlusion. It would be nice if I could start the render normally from frame 1 and proceed torwards the last frame (300) on the other computer and start from frame 300 and proceed towards frame 1 on the other. This way I wouldn’t have to worry about the optimum frame range for the individual computers. Is this possible to do in Blender (I’m using 2.49b)?

If they are both on the same network you could do a simple network render with the Touch and No Overwrite render settings or look at some other simple network rendering options.
