    Seti@Home


    I took the liberty of creating a group on seti@home for these forums

    http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/team...?teamid=116327

    The software can be downloaded from

    setiathome.berkeley.org

    Donate your PC idle time to a good cause. Browsing around the net uses minimal pc power so please use the rest for SETI or other good causes

    I've been thinking about joining something like this for a while but I never really bothered to look into it. If the account creation process isn't that involved (i.e., not a big commitment), I'll download it.

    Perhaps I'm just dense, but I can't find any screensaver, interactive opengl GUIs, or documentation for the boingmgr application (besides a tiny wiki page). Anyone have a link?

    I joined ages ago but I havn't run the software for a while, I have rejoined as my computer is on all the time and the bandwidth and CPU power needs using up.
    The biggest security threat is the user.

    I've only had this thing installed for 24 hours and it's already annoying me. After reading this thread on the setiathome forums, I think I'll be removing the client from my machine and deleting my account after it's done with its current job. Apparently the developers can't be bothered to make a decent linux release - what I have installed right now has a buggy minimalist GUI, low speed, next to zero documentation, and no three dimensional graphics (which of course, makes the entire thing worth giving away my CPU power )

    You can optimize BOINC for linux

    remember it is not about speed or the points it is about helping others.
