not sure about the mac native client, but the windows one uses my ATi without any setup.

Yes, according to the BOINC wiki, ATi doesn't require any additional setup...thinking I might invest in one of those...

I'm in!

Hey my peeps!
I've got my 8 core Mac Pro w/ 6 gigs of RAM crunching for the cause.

Hm, nope...trying to remember when compute 1.3 came out, though I doubt I could crunch MW@H on my dad's '06 white iMac. Although it IS on 24/7...

In other news, my contributions to PrimeGrid have now largely exceeded my MW@H ones...still trying to get a GPU for my home machine so I can follow the white rabbit.

All but totaled my Belkin cooling pad, too. (why am I proud of that?)

ooh ooh let's take on Reddit. :P

Once I get home (Friday) I'll see about getting 3 or 4 of my computers on the grid as well. Most likely I can get my dad's iMac crunching, as he never turns it off and also happens to love science. And he admits I know more about computers than he does.

On a different note, I've made the bold decision to build my own computer around hardcore gaming and super-efficient grid computing. If you're logged into Facebook, click here to see a list of parts I wanna put in it...if you're interested.

Glad to see the MW@H MacRumors team is taking off! We have 14 members now, 3 of whom haven't yet done anything (but that's ok). I've taken it upon myself to create MacRumors teams in other projects like eOn, PrimeGrid, Collatz, and Pirates@Home - there is already one for Einstein - so if you do any of those projects, why not join MacRumors there as well?

Just noticed this thread. I joined! And the team *is* ranked, at #249. Still one spot ahead of Microsoft

However, my MBP has an unsupported 9400M GPU, and I run BOINC with very conservative settings to keep heat and fan noise down. Also my gaming PC (GTX 560) is running something else right now, but I'll see what I can do.

Hmm, seems this is dead thread. Too bad. I just activated this project on my aforementioned GTX 560 desktop last night. So now I'm doing as much work in a day as I did in a few months prior.

The macrumors.com team is currently ranked #361 in Recent Average Credit, and #260 in Total Credit.

Interesting project! If it's still active, I might try it out since I've done some of Folding@home.

Yep, still plugging along. (I'm having trouble connecting to the website at this moment, but it was up this morning.)

I had it running 24/7 on my GTX 560 desktop, which allowed me to march right up the leaderboard but I've had stability issues with the card, so I've turned off the GPU component and have it on two cores of an i7-2600.
