Comment: I didn't see the point until I read "analog" (Score 4, Insightful) 51 51

I didn't see the point to this design until I noticed the part about it being "analog".

Until then, I wasn't seeing the difference between the memcomputer and older non-symmetric parallel processing machines which used to cluster a CPU with it's memory for each node/board of the system, but without the shared memory of an SMP system.

Still, I'm afraid I can't see much practical application to their system, and they don't give any examples of the types of problems they think it'll be suitable for.

One of these days I'll have to get "into" QT. It looks like a great successor to some of the concepts originating with Neuron Data's tools, which I spent a lot of years learning and working with. For now I've been focused on Java server code, but I've never really been a fan of Java for writing client applications, and I've no interest in buying an Android device just so I can stick with Java while working on front-end code.

No, to me, client side means an actual computer, not a mobile device. And QT hits almost as many platforms as Java does, so it would seem to be an excellent fit for my goals. :)

An optimist believes we live in the best world possible; a pessimist fears this is true.
