OT/ON
If the LED has a built-in analog TV tuner, no prob.
The C-64 has also an antenna cable connector.

My C-128 has both composite and high resolution RGBI and twice the memory and twice the speed in 128 mode. And an extra-Z80 processor so I can run CP/M apps.
:P

I'm still working on porting SETI@home to it.

Ah, but can it do these? http://www.studiostyle.sk/dmagic/gallery/gfxmodes.htm :)

I wonder if there's an FFT that can run in 1KB (ZX80) or 48KB (C64). :-)

To which address would I need to send the floppy disk with the results?

edit: oh sorry a Z80 - the tape then.
edit2: should read more carefully :) It's Jord who would have to send in a tape. unless you can make it to run on a ZX81 with 1+32 kB in which case you can have my tapes too.

I used to do 256-channel FFTs in CBASIC on a (Z80) Exidy Sorcerer -- cutting-edge stuff in Antarctica in 1980. It was faster to precompute the arrays of sins and coses needed, and then read them in from floppy disk, than to calculate them every run.

LOL, yes, there appears to be a difference between a Z80 and a ZX80, other than the added extra X. My fault! :)

I've still got mine too, in storage in Byron Bay. Last time I checked, maybe 20 years ago, there was a bus problem between the computer and the S100 expansion unit. I'm hoping next time I'm home to at least retrieve the Micropolis floppy disks and see if I can find someone who can read them -- some results I got in Mawson which were pooh-poohed as not fitting the orthodox view of upper-atmospheric science, and so never published, are now apparently mainstream; it'd be nice to claim priority!

Now that's just 3hrs away down the hill from here, but sadly it's not the place that I remember these days.

Check the applications page, one has already been released for AMD GPUs, the Cuda version is in the process of being ported.

Anyone automatically downloads upgrades to your system without you choosing to accept is a joke. I will be gone soon....

It is normal (by design from the beginning) and is well known.

"Your PC downloads executable and input files from the project's data server. If the project releases new versions of its applications, the executable files are downloaded automatically to your PC."

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/How_BOINC_works

And this is not "upgrades to your system", the only changes are in the project directory
...\BOINC\projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\

You've been here since March 8, 2002, which means you've seen the transition of SETI@home software releases from v5.x to v6.x to v6 "Multibeam"... all of which were automatically downloaded to your machine when they were released.


So why do you suddenly have a problem with it now?

I disagree.....been here 11 years and never have been informed any NEW VERSIONS will automatically be installed on my system without my permission. I understand the file "updates". A new version should be my choice, especially when it "bogs down" peoples systems farther....like this was is doing.

This is not something you can simply respond to by saying "I disagree". I've been here since April 2002 myself, and even I've known that science apps are always updated automatically. If you weren't aware of it, then obviously you didn't read everything like I did. Whether you believe it or not, your system has been automatically updating science apps since 2002, which means you've seen v5 apps, v6 apps, and v6 "multibeam" science apps all automatically download to your system.


As for the "bogging down your system"... it sounds like there's something wrong and you should head over to Number Crunching to state what the symptoms are and to see if you can fix it.

To blame all your performance woes on the new v7 app is a bit short sighted. If the v7 app is buggy (as you seem to imply), then why isn't this happening on everyone else's machines?

We all know that SETI@home (and all projects that crunch numbers using your system) are some of the most stressful apps you can put your system through. So if there's a performance problem, it is only logical to conclude you have a weakness in your system.

A new version should be my choice


Actually, no it shouldn't. It is very important for the scientists to ensure that everyone is crunching data using the most current app the scientists wish everyone to be using. Crunching new data on older versions can ruin the scientific results.

In fact, you can't crunch workunits marked for v7 apps on the old v6 apps. So once the v6 workunits dried up, you wouldn't have any work to do, then you'd be complaining about having no work instead.

Thanks for reminding me of "all my details" which I already know. Dig up somemore and you will see I ran with so-called older versions for long periods of time until I CHOSE TO CHANGE as I upgraded my computer systems.. To me it is like a hobby watch some numbers go by without affecting the real things I CHOOSE to do. Years before I was much more involved with United Devices Cancer reseach projects until they choose to cut it off. Now for a charge you can use their software to run your own projects. I left, as I will do here.
