Hi all … I am finally getting around to putting BOINC back on my machines … is there a TMRO Team i can join … or for that matter should we start one?? Maybe we can help out some of the guests
There is not a team, but if you want to start one and get me the details, I can maybe add that to the end of a show?
Just curious… so I will ask the question that others might also have. Does BOINC refer to this? If so, how are you suggesting it be leveraged?
If you do start a BOINC team let me know the details, I currently run SETI@Home on my laptop.
Just been looking into it … they suggest Here that the team be set up with it’s own e-mail address to avoid spam issues … so I was wondering if @Bencredible would be willing to setup firstname.lastname@example.org … i will be more than hapy to handle the small amount of work involved in setting it all up after all once its done and the details posted on say here there is little else to do.
@M0THM-Tim_McConnell Yep, just curious how TMRO would take advantage, or use, distributed computing. From what I see, BOINC would apply to things like deep mathematical analysis of signal data, intensive aerodynamic modeling, large dataset tweaking, and other gigantic, heavy-weight things like that.
So, yes, I’m just curious if TMRO has a use for this? Or is it just to raise the general citizen-interest in distributed computing? Either answer is fun, and would capture my geek-interest. I will investigate installing BOINC.
So the way I see it we have guests on who are involved with research … we all are interested in science … seems like its a way we could as a group give back. By doing it as a tmro team all the cpu time we give is recorded to that team so we can see just how much we as a community are helping. So as a gain something for TMRO I’m not sure there is a gain as such; As an interesting application of distributed computing and a good thing to do as a community I think it’s worthwhile.
As per the BOINC site have just e-mailed David Anderson the following
I am a follower and pateron of the TMRO show (www.tmro.tv). A few of us followers would like to start a team to help with the science we love so much. Please see the thread where I suggested this here. I noticed that on the BOINC site it says to contact you fro starting such a team. Could you please inform what process you would like to follow. I will be more than happy to start a separate Gmail account; Depending on server space and response we may set up a email@example.com account down the road. If this is no longer available please let me know and we will have to have a discussion inside our forums as to setting up teams with each project.

So now wait and see.
