Indeed. A cheap way of playing with parallel computation, especially if you want to write your own communications and task-distribution code, but not to do any serious calculations.

From what you've posted so far I doubt you want to write code of that nature but it's by far the best way of learning about the basic problems and how to solve them IMO. Book learning is fine, and essential, but it's never the same as practical work.
