Meeeeee! How about using the extropian idle CPU pool or the ExI GIMPS team to see if a huge matrix can be inverted using distributed computing? I wonder what is the largest matrix ever to be inverted? The two largest matrices ever multiplied? Shall we find out and try for the world's record? Can you not see the application of using distributed computing to do matrix arithmetic to make artificial fractal landscapes, etc? Id give up GIMPS in a heartbeat if someone can figure out how to do this. spike
