    i now have both seti@home and THINK. i've thought about using Flash to create a distributed-computing project. any ideas? i currently think of possibly pi computation, comparing systems, even creating a dynamic application, or a wordlist.

    ?

    do something worthwhile. flash MX lets you store information in shared objects (up to 100k on the users machine). You can also detect resolutions, platforms, browsers, windows version etc.

    Flash, effectively could be used to build up a huge database of user information, ie, percentage of netscape users, platforms used etc.

    This information, with enough, visitors could create a more accurate demographic of user information than the common lists that macromedia and the like churn out.
