    I just wish some of these projects would just put a simple what we are and what it`s all about link on their site. I read most of it and still not sure what the hell it`s supposed to be.

    up and running with this on 1 PC - WUs seem pretty quick compared to everything else (~5 mins on my AMD64 3400+ at ~75% CPU usage).

    Someone please explain this project, and try to make it where your average 12th grader could grasp it fairly easily.

    To quote from NeoGen our team's resident BOINC guru:

    "Now, after a bit of study I can say that this is a project similar to uFluids, it studies the forces and interactions at molecular scale.
    The application does not yet support suspending/resuming, but the workunits are very small, ranging from 2 to 30 minutes on an XP2000+, so it isn't really much of a problem.

    The graphics is just what was said there, a wireframe cube delimiting the space where the molecules can wander about, and the molecules themselves interacting with each others.

    An interesting twist on this project is that you can make up your own workunits, with your desired parameters and send them to the server to be crunched. (By you and/or someone else). Unless you really study the input format, and the dynamics and all that is related, what happens often is that the workunits end up being badly configured and fail. But there are some example workunits already on the site if you want to tinker with it. You can take one of those and make small changes to it for example.


    I've noticed that sometimes there's lack of workunits. Don't worry about that. It's just that right now there are quite a few problems with the application and the developer has to study the results to find and correct the bugs. Leiden is an alpha or beta project yet (don't know which), so it's still in a sensible phase. "

    Hope that helps you Shish.

    Ta very muchness mate.
    Just wish all the projects would put some kind of indicator/summary of what their goals are in simple language for the layman on the first page.
    Some people don`t have the time or knowledge to wade through the details.
