Hello.

I was wondering, if this is how boinc works.

Lets say I have the boinc server set up and running. I have an application that is computationally intensive. If i add this application to the projects database of my boinc server, clients that are connected to my project will start to do some computation on that application. Is that how it works? Does the server automatically "break" the application into pieces so that clients can compute different parts of the application?

Just trying to understand the big picture here, thanks.

look at http://boinc.berkeley.edu/create_project.php for how it works.

I actually read that, but I just wanted to clarify it.
