[Beowulf] How to make a BeagleBoard Elastic R Beowulf Cluster in a Briefcase

Cute, but my question is, what use is one of these homegrown 
platforms?

Certainly if it was commercialised that would be a beasty compute 
appliance... but that's not my question - I'm asking, what is the 
role of the home hacker in the HPC world?

I mean, it's fine to go and make one of these things, but once you've 
made it, what do you use it for?

I ask as I presently have a "grid engine in a briefcase" sitting idle 
in my cupboard, fun to make but as I have no datasets to crunch, it's 
not even particularly good-looking eye candy!

I joined this list to get the answer to this question...
