not sure who still monitors this forum, but we have been talking about closing this subforum. It may make more sense to create a Distributed Computing Mega-Thread in community forums instead.

Let me know if anyone has any strong feelings about this.

I'm all in favor of the meg-thread idea and closing this forum.

Whatever happened to that discussion? Since then there’s been but one new thread.

Been a while since this was posted, but it could probably be closed and sent to archive. Only 1 thread since then, which saw far more activity than past ones but died quickly. This thread of course related to dire events of recent, so it's not really an indicator of interest in distributed computing.

This is probably the most dead part of the forum altogether, so it may be time for it to go. On a side note, I'd also recommend closing OS X Panther subform in OS versions, as it's only had 2 posts since March 2005, one of which was a bot.
