Yea, most modern video cards can push math waaay better than a cpu.

Well crap. Looks like it's for folding at home and only on the newer nvidia cards. My bad.

That's why they built a beowulf cluster out of Xbox's? Or some other high end gaming machine where they used the graphics processor and the gov't was jealous (kinda).

I think that was ps2's. There was an export ban on them for a while.

When the PS2 was launched in April 2000 the Japanese government classified it as a military weapon . . . in December 2000 the US Defence Intelligence Agency claimed that Iraq had imported 4,000 PS2s to control all of its nuclear-tipped missiles . . . the rest is history.

Shouldn't someone tell the NCSA that Sony includes a rootkit with most of its products?

Too bad it's no longer working, at least last time I checked and tried to get some cross-compile time.

I know. Throw your rotten fruit at me for bringing this thread back up. I just thought it needed some attention. We can do so well on the Wigle Site, but our Seti group is failing miserably. We are placed at 3008th with only a handful of us donating processor time. So I thought i would revive this thread and maybe generate some more interest in our Seti Team.

I've been playing around with the new bionic app on my file server. I need to cut it back though. It pegs both processors at 100%. Who the hell is Ben any way?

Yea I cut it back and only allow it to run when the computer has been idle for 10 minutes. It was really easy to install and set up on the Ubuntu desktop. No screen saver that I can find and doesn't have an icon or anything indicating it's running. It just runs nicely.

As far as Ben I have no idea. Might be a lurker and started the team on the Berkley servers. Looking at the first posts in this thread, it might be King_Ice_Flash.

Most all my boxen with CPU ticks to spare are running OpenBSD. Haven't been able to get the stuff to run there yet, although haven't tried lately.

I have shut my Seti farm down. I'll toss a couple processors back into it.
