This is not an April Fools post – although when you get to the end of it you may wonder.
Whenever someone visits a particular web page, either by included .js script file or an IFRAME I’ll run some code that performs some small part of batch task that’s been registered on a MetaWrap server.
This is really a test of the MetaWrap server and the ability to create and coordinate a distributed computing task and display the results.
Plan is to build a database of jobs that will render an ultra high resolution Mandelbrot set.
Or maybe ray trace a scene.
Need some way to allow people to navigate the completed Mandelbrot set online – which is a task in itself.
Google maps style interface would go nicely!
Using Action XML format to encode jobs. At this rate though not going to be finished for another year.. 😦
