    Whatcha crunching?

    After being away from distributed computing for a while because of frustration with BOINC, I've recently discovered it not only started working recently, but can see my graphics card.

    So what are you guys and gals running?

    Here's the messages which might be relevant to a decision as to what projects to run, at the moment BOINC is just idling.

    what should I do with my ATI card?

    Apparently, yoyo@home doesn't use graphics cards, so I need a secondary project. BOINC wasn't that helpful, I want fresh information and BOINC doled out multi-year old posts.

    There are several choices. Milkyway, Collatz, Primegrid and Distrtgen are some. You could also use it to mine Bitcoins.
    19 primes found. The largest: 1351*2^617684+1 (185945 digits)

    Oops, I meant Google doled out multi-year old posts.

    Decided to do Einstein@Home. lol, sounds like they're crunching beer recipes. 100 worthless points to anyone who gets that joke. Hint: Albert Einstein is German.

    Running 2 x Q6600 Quads here at home in Leicester, paradise of the Midlands, UK.
    (new recruit to the Free-DC team)

    Quad 1 runs 1 core CPDN + 3 cores Primaboinca + WUProp + FreeHal
    Quad 2 runs 1 core QMC + 3 cores Docking + WUProp + Freehal
    Not so much a 'farm' - more a 'window-box' or a 'hanging basket'......
