Milkyway@Home: Join the MacRumors team!

Hello

The Seti@Home project is very quiet at this time, so I decided to join a new project, the Milkyway@Home. The aim is to create a 3D model of the Milky Way galaxy.

I have created a team for MacRumors members, please join me, as we all start at the same time it will be fun !

Url of the project: http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu
Name of the team: macrumors.com

Note: when possible, try to subscribe to milkyway with the same login as macrumors, so it's easier to know who's who...

I've joined as well. Now all I need is my i5 MBP in the mail and we'll be on our way

I love astronomy. So much.

Cool Meldar! Give us a shout when you get your powerful i5, we only have core 2 duos now in the macrumors team so you can catch the 1st rank very quickly

Heh, well it arrived in the mail today. At my house, that is, and I'm at college - I'm gonna head home for the weekend though, so yeah, I'll be folding away once it's up and running.

Er, bit of a delay...

In the meantime, I'm using a 3.0GHz, 4GB RAM multi-ventilated XP hack desktop from 2005. Slowly grinding along... :P

I'm "NullCoding" by the way. Pretty much everywhere on the internet, actually!

Cool I can see you now Costabunny ! A big welcome ! Wow your machine looks amazingly performant ! I think it's because of the ATI card...

I just joined but would like to know, as a huge FOSS advocate, what license will the model be released under if they ever complete it? I hope something like the creative commons.

That's a very good point. I don't have the exact answer but I remember when I picked up this project this was also because it looked pretty independent, I mean not aimed to bring money to a company...

Hmm...I'd like to see the finished model too, when that happens! It would seem that it'll end up being something like the AMNH Digital Universe on a smaller scale, possibly available for public view given that its completion is dependent on volunteer resources.

i5 MBP crunchin' away...not in first place, though. The person who is must have several machines going! Super cool. Again, astronomy + computers = I-could-spend-all-day-at-this.

sorry to dissapoint but just the one i3 running (and a 5850). (the GPU makes the difference).

Hmm I cannot figure out how to get my GPU to do work...I sort of understand how it works, but can't seem to configure it to do so - unless it is, and I just don't see it listed somewhere.

Intel HD Graphics won't do it, I don't think, but what about the GeForce GT 330M in my MBP...? if an i3 can do it, there's gotta be a way for an i5 to.

Just to clarify - my GPU is working through the Windows BOINC client and is a desktop board (don't know if there is a difference for mobile vrs desktop ATI chips).

Most likely...lots of people have told me that it's a bad idea to run BOINC on a laptop. I'm not sure why...no problems here...
