GPUGrid.net, to keep CUDA GPU hot.
Einstein@Home for CPU-s, to find new pulsars and gravitational waves.
Keep crunchin'!

I like Primegrid. there are several subprojects that have very short TAT and if you prefer longer WU's well they have those to choose from as well.

For the GPU I use Milkyway and Collatz as the backup.

Other projects that I run are World Community Grid - I like their work on Muscular Dystrophy.

I've even ran a bit of work on EON2 though I think this project is still very alpha.

I've ran Yoyo@home but it requires a large amount of RAM

I'm using optimized aps for MilkyWay, and my dual core CPU with 1G of RAM takes about 5 hours for a WU. Deadlines are usually 7 to 10 days.


?

AFAIK, the old opt. CPU app don't work with the new WUs..
At least not on my E7600.

MW@h have since 07. Oct. a new CPU app (V0.4).
Also additional a new CPU(-only) app, nbody V0.21 .


EDIT: AFAIK, stock (CPU and) GPU apps are (currently) the fastest.


Yep, have noticed that too.


From your projects overview, you don't let run MW@h.
Why/from where you know this? ;-) (if you meant that the opt. app don't work)


I have no idea why MW dont show up on this page.
Already finnished 6 units so it should.
I also added Collatz

I think it is an old optimized ap. My copy of the executable is dated July 2009. I get WUs steadily, they are all 4.5 to 5 hours to complete, and I think I had maybe one WU hang up in the last year. I get slightly more RAC per CPU hour with this than with optimized S@H.

From posts over at the MW Forums, it looks like the newer stock aps are sometimes fast, but are causing problems on some operating systems. I will stick with this until I see a reason to change.

Note to mods: I know this is all way off topic, but I hope you will let us sort out how to run other projects until the REAL project comes back.


My app is from 03/2010.
Hmm.. strange that your old opt. (0.19) app is working with the new WUs.

In the meantime, MW@h released the 0.45 app. (after 0.4 and 0.44 was/is buggy)

Maybe arkayn could reactivate the DL for the old opt. 0.19 apps on his site?
If they work well with the new WUs.. to the time, maybe Gipsel looked again to the code and release again new opt. apps..

It's not off topic, this thread is about alternate projects.. :-)

Sometimes it last up to one day (or more), that the projects have updated the user projects list.
