Hey Everyone,

I just released a Mac OS X version of Separation that should run on CPUs and GPUs (with double precision support). Please let me know if you have any issues with the Mac Separation application here.

Hi Jake.

I got the new Mac OS app this morning with eight tasks: four of de_modfit_19_3s_146_bundle5_ModfitConstraintsWithDisk_… and two each of de_modfit_fast_Sim19_3s_146_bundle5_ModfitConstraintsWithDisk_UpdatedCredit_… and de_modfit_fast_Sim19_3s_146_bundle5_ModfitConstraintsWithDisk_FixedParams_….

So far the …fast_Sim… tasks are completing and validating. The others are bombing out within a second of starting.

Yay! My D700 is BACK! :)

It seems that the new work units take considerably longer to run (and have longer estimated times). Do they contain more work? (Old time: 16 seconds, new time: 66 seconds).

Hey WMD,

Each work unit now contains everything needed for 5 calculations (think 5 old workunits) and a new version that takes slightly longer to run since there is an added calculation. You should see this reflected in the credits awarded for completing a work unit though.

We made this change because the load on the server was too high when we were running 1 work unit at a time and the requests for new basically DDOSing the server. Things are running much more smoothly now.

Hey Everybody,

Since a couple of months it is possible to calculate with the GPU of my Mac (AMD/ATI GPU). But every calculation ends after two seconds with a 'calculation-failure'.
