Hi all,

I was at the museum on Saturday as well and got information about this group. I'm enthused about the maker community and I think a group workshop is a fantastic idea!

It's been many years since I've exercised my creativeness with electronics (or other craft) and I'm eager to get back into it!

Hello and welcome, Wammie! I'm doing World Community Grid with my main PC (the one I'm currently sitting at) on Carleton College's team. I've got the latest 64-bit BOINC client running on two CPU cores and 2 nVidia GPGPUs. :) At this moment, my work units are Fight AIDS At Home and Help Conquer Cancer.

Wow, Theo! :mrgreen: I got involved on the the first public release day of WCG in 2004. I followed the forums for quite a while but now only check back occasionally. I took interest in the early discussions concerning programming of GPUs for grid processing, but last I knew, the technology was not yet available for general use on PCs and wouldn't be developed in the near future.

I just did some research and now see the GPU software provided at the folding@home site. Cool! I was hoping someday to employ my home computer graphics card for grid computing, but I only have a GeForce 4 class card, which is not supported.

You're welcome... and hey, other members of the pool can do it too! There were too many pix for me to properly, thoroughly annotate (not a bad problem to have).

I'll be uploading my own photos later on, as well.
