New DC effort: Einstein@Home
« on: March 15, 2005, 09:34:53 AM »
Heads up for those with plenty of spare computer cycles: the LIGO collaboration---that is, the scientific endeavour which is searching for gravitational waves---is offering a client for distributed computing to help in analysing parts of data of actual experiments. The client is called 'Einstein @ Home' and can be downloaded from this site.

(I am not affiliated with Einstein @ Home in any way: I just happen to think this is a particularly sensible way of spending CPU cycles (apart from the computation of protein folding)---all that SETI and RC5-72 stuff is a waste of electricity, in my very humble but very definite opinion.)
Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.
