Spinning up instances takes a while, so I do them in parallel to save time.  I'm running CCL eval servers on the instances, so I essentially have a Lisp supercomputer that I can spin up whenever I need it.  It's pretty wizzy, if I do say so myself :-)

I'd be interested.  I have been using Amazon's EC2 for a bunch of
things, some lisp and some not.  But so far I have been using perl to
handle the launching and job management:  the absence of a common
RUN-SHELL-COMMAND, and FORK, among other things, make it almost
impossible to use portable CL for such scripting.

In the app store version it works like process-run-funciton except that if the thread produces output it pops up a background listener window instead of dumping it to the altconsole.  In the trunk I get this error immediately, even if the thread produces no output:
