Pooch provides the easiest way to assemble and operate a parallel computer. We encourage you to see for yourself. Pooch even operates correctly on mixed clusters of OS 9 and OS X Macs. The download also contains the AltiVec Fractal Carbon app, a parallel application that rapidly computes Mandelbrot-style fractals which also demonstrates high-performance computing and parallel computing. And the Fresnel Diffraction Explorer which simulates Fresnel diffraction, a phenomenon of light, using an advanced set of algorithms.
What's new in Pooch
Pooch revised to disable use of deprecated components such as Network Services Library
Conversion of the Pooch Installer and Pooch Package to Universal Binary
Conversion of other Unix-level components to PowerPC and Intel fat binary
I was wondering if pooch is able to work under the new Intel Macs and also I wanted to know if I could use any old application (ex. Photoshop) to use pooch? I tried to find the answer on your website but didn't really findd a direct answer.
Wonderful product for those needing extra CPU power for long (day & week-long) analyses. Had it understood & up and running in less than an hour. The developer is very quick to reply & informative. This is apparently superior to Apple's xgrid app...
