[erlang-questions] How to enslave an army of minions with Distributed Erlang Nodes

Hi everyone,

I've been reading up on some of the cool distributed features of Erlang.

With this in mind I've created a simple example so I could demo this
to a couple of people by connecting the nodes on a few laptops.

Check out the code if this sound interesting to you:

It has mostly been tested on Mac OS X, and it can be improved a lot by
maybe applying more OTP principles etc, but I had quite a bit of fun
doing and showing the primitive version already.

Next I'd like to figure out some more simple and fun examples to do
once you have a master node with an army of minions at your disposal.
Any ideas would be appreciated :-)

Kind regards,
