[Beowulf] OK, I'll be first: mac mini

anyone working on assembling a large cluster of Mac mini's?
I hafta believe that some of you bio or montecarlo types are
thinking about it. sure, the box only has a G4, and only 100bT,
but it's small, fairly cheap and gosh-darn cute!
fairly low power, and the input might be DC (gangable?).
if not a compute cluster, how about a video wall? radeon 9200 is
nothing to sneeze at (faster than my desktops), and one of these
would look pretty cute sitting under a mini-DLP projector.
I wonder if there are embarassing-enough parallel applications where
even the annoying cat5 could be dispensed with (just opt for the
internal 54 Mbps wireless card).
regards, mark hahn.
