Distributed Artificial Life is a distributed version of Tom S. Ray's Tierra artificial life program. It uses spare CPU cycles to simulate a distributed soup of living cells.

Note that the machine language used is similar to but not compatible with Tierra. Tom Ray talks about his work (as far as I know, never completed) to create a "Digital Reserve". The DLIFE project is a development of this.

In other words, it's an alternative to the tedious process of cracking RC5 keys or searching for aliens. You've got a supercomputer on your desk, let's go and create some life ...

It consists of a highly optimized engine for running the artificial life cells in a virtual machine, written in C, and some Perl scripts which can upload and download cells from central ``cell-bank'' servers.
