Considering that I'm just trying to distribute the workload of a math program that I wrote and do not need anything fancy, your first sentence probably says it all. I was hoping for a bare-bones app or framework that has all that ready and allows you to add your own client or program with minimal effort. Unfortunately, I'm not seeing anything that simplistic. I may just do as you suggest and create my own program to do just that.
Of course, using an established program such as BOINC does allow me to tap their end-users potentially.
Both. Considering the numbers being generated and the quantity, I would like to distribute the workload across many users. I was hoping to use an existing framework and server that already had many users (e.g., BOINC).
What this sounds like is you want to distribute the internal processes among many machines in order to speed up the time it takes to complete a process.
If this is the case, than this is not a distributed system in the sense that I was talking about but more of a system in which you want to be able to implement distributed or parallel processing among the various internal tasks. As such, tasks a, b, and c would be sent to workstation-a, while tasks d, e, and f would be sent to workstation-b, for example.
This doesn't quite give me what I want. I was hoping for a framework with a base of users (e.g., BOINC) that I could tap into. My only issue with BOINC is that it does not have a bare-bones container that would require minimum customization and configuration of my program to distribute the work. I need to think about this some more.
Whiteboards are useless - the chalk doesn't show up at all like it did on the old blackboards. Why do they have to keep changing things just for the sake of it? I bet these whiteboards only exist to show new icons better.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
As long as we get CodeProject served to us, nobody really cares about the hamsters. As the song goes:
You load 16 bits, and what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt.
St. Peter don't call me, 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the CodeProject store.

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
