some method other than a network to combine all the processors to serve
as one main computer process to make them into a super computer for
math calculations or biorythyms, I have seen some method but it would
mean having to take all the motherboards of the cases, and even then it
may not work if I can find a software that can use all the procesors?
any ideas or solutions thanks
Re: utilizing multible computers for one calculation or process for one result
Yes there are ways but 1) you need to write your own programs to take
advantage of them and 2) you actually need to connect the computers
together so if you have already decided that you want something "other
than a network" you are out of luck.
A Linux Beowulf cluster is probably the cheapest way to accomplish
"supercomputer" tasks with a bunch of PCs.
In any case, why would anyone bother calculating biorhythms with a
supercomputer? An Altair 8800 could do that in the mid-70s -- biorhythms
were pointless then and adding computational horsepower can't reverse
