    Exclamation Earth to Laurenu2.

    It looks like Lauren is AWOL (absent without laughs) on us. Anybody want to guess why? My two choices would be:

    1. His whole farm was producing so much heat trying to catch me that the whole thing went up in flames. He tried to rescue some of his precious GPUs, got burned and is now in the hospital. Let's hope not.

    2. The little guys that SETI have been looking for found out about his obsession with crunching and being number one. They came and got him to see what makes him tick.

    Both guesses are probably wrong, at least I hope so.

    Earth to Lauren, where are you?

    You need to slow down and smell the GPUs burning.

    At our age, that kind of pace will put you in the ground real fast.

    Then I wouldn't have anyone here to compete with.


    But it might help stop global warming with all your rigs turned off.

    OK, I'll play. Watch your back, Drug Discovery has Nvidia apps and 1 ATI-Open_Cl app.


    Now if they just had some work.

    Would you rather play on MW? 250 Million is the next milestone for us. You currently have the lead but I can do a switch over on Thursday.

    I do not know I am tired of MW as I am sure you are as well
    is there a 3rd choice?
    Cosmology@Home
    Docking@Home
    RNA World
    Leiden Classical
    Edges@Home Beta
    they seem to have work.

    Or
    Do you like flight sims like JSF (Joint Strike Fighter)
    I could host it from here with up to 6 members at a time
    Now that I have the bandwidth and and static IP

    In order to be fair it would have to be a GPU project. DD and Hydrogen are the only new ones I know about and Hydrogen seems to have disappeared. I'm going to put my ATIs back on MW till I reach the milestone and then see what is available.

    I really don't have time for games anymore. With two sons (10 and 13) and an Australian Shepherd puppy I am exhausted at the end of the day. And then there is the 7 hour time difference.

    We could try a run at Collatz but I do have a slight lead at the moment.

    I'll put the ATIs on it tomorrow. The Nvidias are staying where they are because the credit is just too good.

    BTW DD@Home are testing the GPU apps and should have them ready for the next WU release.

    The ATI application is Open_CL so it will require the same setup as PG. Don't wait until work is available to do the setup. If it works for PG it should work for DD.

    CPU or GPU? GPU requires the APPS driver to run Open_CL.

    All My Nodes have worked DD in the past so I am attached to that project
    and you said if it worked on PG it should work in DD
    Is there something else I need to do ?

    Change your preferences at DD to enable GPU.
