I have to come up with my own problem. I worked on a Beowulf cluster for
  my assignment and I quite liked it. And I'm interested in HPC.

That's true and it's embarassing. I liked working on the Beowulf cluster
and want to do project on "cluster computing" to solve a compute
intensive problem. So I know how I will go on implementing it but don't
know what I will implement. :o)
