What is zslip?

zslip.com is a web site that provides additional download resource for optimized apps which have already been reported, or referred to, in the MilkyWay@Home forums.

These optimized apps are deemed to be providing good WU (work unit) returns because those that have created them, or reported them to MilkyWay@Home, have said so and that they include all the requirements specified by the MilkyWay@Home administrators. Additionally MilkyWay@Home administrators have said that these optimized apps are returning good results and include the requirements, in the MilkyWay@Home forums or as replies to individuals asking the question, or they have not said otherwise in the MilkyWay@Home forums.

zslip.com attempts to bring together all the current optimized apps for MilkyWay into one place, www.zslip.com (use of http://zslip.com is the same). It includes a link to where in the MilkyWay@Home forums the optimized app is referenced/reported.

Hopefully, zslip.com enables people to find the optimized apps quicker than trying to trawl through the various MilkyWay@Home forums to identify them and to confirm whether they are the latest or not.

zslip.com is a volunteer resource and in no way takes transfer of responsibility or liability of any of the optimized apps – it simply reports what is already there and provides a download for what is already there.

zslip.com includes links back to the MilkyWay@Home forums as to how to implement the optimized apps.

Co-operation to ensure zslip.com is up-to-date would be appreciated by posting in the MilkyWay@Home forums, this thread would be good, or by emailing zslip dot com at gmail dot com

Thanks!!

Actually, it started out as the name of an invention. I dreamt up something to do with the prevention of something slipping, and came up with the product and website name 'zslip'. Who knows, maybe the invention will come of something and you'll all have to find another website to get your appz from :P

Thanks for putting all the op apps in one place with links to 'how to'.

No, it's "Transparent Nylon"... How do we know he didn't invent it anyway?

Edit: Of course, with your avatar of Grace...maybe it should be "Transparent Cylon"? ;-)

Or it means he'll give 'Z slip' when everyone is expecting to use the link, it'll change to something else.

Whilst it's nice to have everything on one web page in http://www.zslip.com/milkyway, I have also put the Windows and Linux optimized apps in separate pages;

http://zslip.com/milkyway/windows.htm

http://zslip.com/milkyway/linux.htm

Hope this helps.

It might help some folk if it wasn't blue text on a blue background. Having text colour saet differently to the background colour does make it more readable (and I am sure there are people who find it hard to read but don't like to say anything...).

Thank you for that feedback Debs ;) I've updated the colors and hopefully it's more readable now.

That looks much better now, thanks for taking note of my comment. It's made a useful site much more usable :)

I'm glad you commented and not me, 'cos I'd just feel an idiot.
I am an idiot anyway 'cos I have a wornout monitor and on a site like zslip have to switch backgrounds off.

Incidentally, I defy ANYONE to be able to use parts of cosmology@home's site correctly, you have to find a black button on black background in order to fill in form information (in black).

I'm glad you mentioned it. I've been tweaking one or two other things to perhaps improve it more. Thanks again for your feedback.

So....what's your problem.

zslip does read better, the main part is still a tad hard to read though.

Do you mean the front page where I've left the background blue?

I'm with Phil on the cosmology web pages. I don't find it all comfortable to work with those black pages.

Yea, last I checked it was still bright blue. Now it's maroon. Taken care of then.
