Funny you should mention this...

I had daydreams all day thinking the same thoughts. Time, and my budget,
will tell.

| 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.
