Good morning, my little brainiacs,

I've been reading up on clusters because I think it would be a fun experiment 
to build one at home. Hey, what self-respecting geek doesn't have a houseful 
of lazy, under-utilitized computers? One question I'm having a hard time 
finding an answer for-- would this speed up all computing tasks, or does it 
only work for applications that are specially tweaked? I do a lot of audio 
and video editing, and if a little cluster would speed that up then I want 
one now.
