Winners may or may not have used grid or cluster in their creations but if they did it would have been much faster. How about competing for next year, with your cluster/grid doing the rendering?

Next Generation AIM Client with VOIP

BetaNews says that America Online has begun beta testing the next generation of its AOL Instant Messaging software called "Triton," which will replace the existing AIM client. Triton addresses user grievances while adding highly anticipated bells and whistles including tabbed messaging and chat logging.
The Triton client imports features such as mini Buddy Icons from AOL's client software and contains several idiosyncrasies of its own like Flash-based animated smiley backgrounds that augment user personalization.

Underneath its new veneer, Triton has been completely rewritten from the ground up to support advanced communications services such as Voice over IP (VoIP) Internet telephony.
