    RT is about to get some hare-prints on his tortoise shell.

    This site has plans for GPU apps. They have had students working on it since December. I have volunteered as a tester, but I haven't gotten any word, yet. The original thread on their message boards is locked.

    I sneaked past you when you were doing other things. You need to take back your lead.

    After all, I'm here to make all the others look good. You can't be a leader if you don't have followers!

    keep us posted Fred - astronomy and physics-based DC is right up my alley, and so i might be interested in either testing or just getting on board once the GPU end of the project is official and no longer in beta. i'm trying to browse the POGS forum as we speak, but the project server seems to be crawling at the moment...

    Thanks, Fred! I'll have to give that a try at some point. Although I heard they were running out of galaxies to work on at some point recently.

    I put the rabbit on asteroids@home which looks like an interesting project. My other 3 rigs are on fightmalaria@home until we hit another TeAm 1 million milestone (2 or 3 days I think). If asteroids behaves, I'll put everything on it until we get another TeAm million.

    It's run good for me the whole time I've run it and there are plenty of WUs to crunch :)

    SkyNet site is down. They had a news item about it yesterday. It's also a holiday weekend in Australia.

    I will move to SIMAP for a while. Change of plans... Correlizer has new work!
