Message 11775 - Posted: 20 Feb 2009, 8:43:55 UTC

The Heart of Gold is a prototype space ship for infinite credit travel in the Milky Way. The principle is that as its drive reaches infinite creditability, the ship passes simultaneously through every point in every BOINC project. It is then possible to decide at which project(s) you actually want to be at when creditability levels decrease and approach normality.

Credibility is falling, but normality has not yet been achieved.

Lol

Yeah, I love the heart of gold, but you forgot to mention that anyone on board has to talk to Marvin.

And this is really describing the Situation at MW.

Marvin would tell you the facts about the Heart of Gold and it's prototype for infinite credit travel.

The principle is that as its drive reaches infinite credit, the ship passes simultaneously through every conceivable and non-conceivable BOINC project in every conceivable and non-conceivable universe (in other words, when one activates the Infinite Credit Drive, the ship is literally in every BOINC project at once).

It is then possible to decide in which BOINC project you actually want to crunch when credit levels decrease.

Don't stop. It sure drops fast when not crunching here. In 2 weeks ~410 to 113.

Oh, I'm going to have to stop when I go for my hols shortly. I must admit I get very tempted to crunch nothing but MW to push it as far as I can. But then I want my Climate credits above the million at some time.

Thanks to nVidia my SETI RAC is about to pass my MW RAC. Someone needs to design the stand alone GPU BOINC board. It's just a rudementary OS and BOINC stored on a flash chip and several onboard GPUs. The new revolution in "farming".

I liked the FTL drive that simulated a restaurant, because the laws of mathematics don't apply in restaurants.

Check out this bad boy - multiple nVidia GPUs, but no graphics ports. You just set up one or more of these and one graphics card (or on-board graphics) so you can see what's going on. nVidia has some reference systems specified, where you run three (or even FOUR!) of those monsters (C1060 "Tesla" GPUs) on the same mobo.

Or, one can buy a box already configured.

Well watching that video all I need is $10K in throw away money and I can tell Ice to BEAT THAT!

Looks like you need an nVidia chipset too

Well! That core clock speed is certainly impressive, as is the price! It appears to be an infinite probability decison - that nVidia, or two brand new PCs with an ATI HD4870 in each - which would give more creditability? :p

As for;

The infinite credit drive is achieving even more optimization; 61,000 RAC... and rising...

You got a ways to go to catch Campaign's 248k RAC. Your only 28th. Quit being lazy. :P
