More or less. You develop code to run on the T805 and on the PPC
(typically in Occam and/or C, the latter riding on top of their MP
libraries), then download it to the cages for execution. They aren't
"jobs" in the traditional grid/cluster sense (this is a lower level
environment than that) but, as an analogy, it isn't too far off the mark.

None here. Google turns up papers and processes based on these and
other Parsytec parallel computers, though; you should investigate there
