#1 Back Again

Post by Inveteratus »

It's been a very long time, but I've finally reached the stage where I feel I have sufficient hardware to donate a few cycles. I recently put together a nice Intel i9-13900K system with 128Gb of RAM plus an RTX 3060 128Gb box a for my personal use and I must admit I'm impressed with the responsiveness of it, even under heavy load.

Not sure I can contribute that much with only a single box, but it's good to have a little play again and maybe help out solve a few number crunching problems.

I'd like to contribute to a project that has general good to all peeps - but my knowledge is a bit lacking in that dept - Maths I can handle up to a point, Chemistry, Biology etc. I've no real clue about - I think I got some A levels in them but that was a looooong time ago!

I'm a developer at a big anti-piracy company so I usually run just a browser, a terminal, a decent IDE and a few docker images so spare cycles are always around, but till recently, I've not really had the hardware. Hopefully I'll manage to put some effort in this time around!

Slàinte mhath to you all.

Oh that's embarrassing! Oh well, can't be helped.

And no, I can't login to forums - they seem to think my email exists but refuse to send out a password recovery -- perhaps if one of the admins could have a look, I might be able to enter a discussion into how to improve crunching as my boinc acts rather wierd.
