Madness Takes Its Toll - Have Exact Change Ready


« on: March 07, 2019, 01:13:35 AM »

BOINC (Dr Anderson) has published a paper about BOINC *yawn* and you can read it here:

https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1903/1903.01699.pdf

In it he mentions a project I had not heard of; BOINC@TACC (Texas Advanced Computing Center). I went there and signed up.

https://boinc.tacc.utexas.edu/index.php

It is a wrapper project and here are some notes:

1. There is no work yet.
2. It uses VBox  Thumb Down
3. It does not export stats to BOINC yet and I am not sure they plan to do so. (?)
4. It randomizes your username (e. g. mine is "Dataman (CMx1iDdIIT)" Not sure how this would work for the stat's sites. (?)
5. It is funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF). TACC is an old and established organization and has done contract work for NASA.  Thumbs Up
6. It is CPU only.
7.. There is no BOINC@Australia team there.

They have set a limit on Team Creation as you can only create a Team after you have completed a task.  There have not been any tasks available since I joined, but I have my machines ready to accept tasks when they bevome available and I will create the Team.

Maybe they are going to run the BOINC wide Teams script which creates all the registered Teams which we are one of??

OK, cool. I too have it on a machine. Too bad it is VBox.
