Solving problems whose solution space is so large standard AI finds a good solution (not the best solution) or simply fails. I usually use genetic techonology to find more "creative" solutions to the problem at hand and distribute the problem across the network so several computers can help in searching for the best solution and thus increase the potential of finding a better solution faster.
Complex AI and heuristic search problems.
Worked for Formula (Israels second largest software company) and did heuristic scheduling algorithms in C++. Worked for NCC a large outsourcing company and developed a simulation project in CPP, later on continued that work at Pixel. Java editor at EDM/2 ezine.
I have experience with CORBA and a little RMI. I use a little UML but still do a lot of design work and make heavy use of software patterns. I have approximately 6 years experience with C++ programming and 3 years with Java programming. I know Java very in depth since as a Java editor I used to research my articles in every Java related subject.
I use mostly Java today, although I am a very strong C++ programmer. I did use in my school days: SmallTalk, Pascal, C, x86 Assembler, Basic/VB, Cobol etc...
I used watcom quite a lot a couple of years ago, and quite a bit of the VisualAge tools. I used both Borland and MS compilers for C++ and mostly the sun JDK 1.0x to 1.2. I used JBuilder, Visual cafe and cosmo code for a brief while and contributed some source code to the free builder project.
I mostly use x86, I worked very little on mips and PPC. I am very familiar with PC hardware since my childhood hangout was a PC store in which I sometimes worked.
I use many different OS's NT, Linux, OS/2 I recently purchased Solaris, and used for a short while both AIX and IRIX. I ofcorse used quite a bit of Dos ;)
I worked quite a bit in robotics theories and implementation, helping a friend form a startup company in the robotics market. I developed with him some of the concepts of the robots framework API and some AI technologies such as object/language recognition.
Mostly the JDK, Mr. Ed text editor and Netscape communicator.
I have 3 PC's, 2 MMX 200 with 64mb SDRAM and a total of 5GB disk space and one thinkpad 390cd with a TFT monitor. They are all conected through a 10 baseT hub.

The network is the computer. Having a 100 old 486's could mean that you have one large super parallel computer which will be able to solve highly complex problems. I belive Java will be going everywhere as JIT's improve and it will probably replace C++ in many of the day to day tasks.
