I've been mucking around in the world of distributed programming recently. In my defense, I was investigating this topic BEFORE Scott got his hands on a stack of rack mount computers from Intel. But I will admit the sight of all those idle CPU's put the angst into my code-writing fingers. So I've gone ahead and actually written a distributed application.

A little background on distributed computing. First off, we need the obligatory "Linux is awesome." There is a kernel module for Linux called MOSIX that will transparently move CPU/Memory bound applications away from the machine they were launched on, and return those processes as soon as they need to make a system call. That's awesome.
