Subject:    Needed: Examples of how Beowulf systems are used in "real life"

I was wondering if people would be so kind as to send a couple of sentences
on exactly WHAT they were using their Beowulf systems for in "real life"
(other than just building a 'really fast machine').

As an example, I know of one group that is using it to simulate meteors smashing
into the earth...another group that is using it to do real-time animation.

If you would be so kind as to send me a few sentences about what you are doing,
what your organization's name is, and how big your configuration is, I would
appreciate it.  If you do not want me to mention your organization's name, that
is fine.

Warmest regards,
