the povrays (pvm povray, mpi povray ) are probably the most graphical
of the embarasingly parallel problems.  I don't know if mpi-povray
works with lam, but i know it works with mpich.

most scientists don't care to put something fruity like a "progress
meeter" or a "speedup ticker" into their code, so yes, it's hard to
find good bell-and-whistle demos for things like trade shows or budget
