Hello everyone,

I've been recently looking into grid computing and wonder has anyone ever thought of using packet radio for grid computing?
I think it would be a neat little thing to try in ham radio, yet I don't know what uses it would be good for. I know what grid computing is, I've been in it for a long time, but what uses in ham radio would it be good for?

comments?

Would the idea be to use packet as the coordinating mechanism?  I haven't looked into the AX.25 protocol in depth yet, but I'm sure it could be used to coordinate resources.

The problem with packet radio is that even at 9600 baud it is incredibly slow by todays communications standards.

Which is fine for coordination, but could be severely limiting if you require a large data set

I recently downloaded this software http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/VmServer along with VirtualBox to see what applications It could be used on over packet radio. Another route would use a higher network like AGW, which uses a sound card instead of a TNC. For the time being I'm experimenting with a application with a Linux Networx Evolocity I cluster supercomputer with a fiber optic network. Eventually, soon I'm going to start apply wireless (packet) networking to the system.
