I played with openMOSIX this nigh from 00h00 to 04h00 at university. As i've already worked with openMOSIX, i wanted to try it on live CD : found clusterKNOPPIX and Quantian. It's magic : just insert the CD and that's all, you can work on your cluster. I've worked with 6 Pentium 4 2GHz and run some benchmarks (e.g. cdparanoia + oggenc, etc): it did pretty fast :D.

Knoppix-based distro for scientific stududents
I'm working since last summer on a KNOPPIX based distro designed for scientific students. My friend and i have worked a lot to get rid of KDE (excessive memory consumption) in favor of XFCE4 which is also Qter :D We're having troubles with non-free software (e.g. scilab) but it's getting finalized. We have a big CD usage issue so we only have French locale : btw we are just targetting our own university and may be some other french universities.
Some of you may have noticed that i have fucked up the blog diary because of an unbalanced quote and bold tag. The result was that the entire page was in bold and that the Edit page was broken (couldn't edit/preview anymore) ... i guess the tag parser failed -- if there is one. Amen, xmlrpclib saved us ! i've just opened a python shell : login, retrieve my last entry, edit, send and that's all :D
