I'm already doing F@H. Why should I switch to Boinc? Necropaxx (T) {~} Saturday, 00:06, Oct 10

Because you can do more than one thing in Boinc, from Marvin@Home, which translates Martian to English, to Nap@Home, which is learning how bears fold into sleepier bears over the winter. Perhaps I'm not selling it too well. Their list of projects is here, anyway. I'm currently doing Climate Prediction (Study climate change), Einstein@Home (Search for gravitational signals emitted by pulsars), Malariacontrol (Simulate Effects of Malaria and its Control) and GPUGRID (Do full-atom molecular dynamics simulations and other scientific applications) & SETI@Home (Looking for love in all the wrong places). The latter two use your 8800 or newer NVidia videocard. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:56, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
I no have nVidia. I'll take a look at the Climate change one, though. Necropaxx (T) {~} Saturday, 06:09, Oct 10
Good grief, that link was complicated. On second thought, nah, I'll stick with F@H. But thanks for the offer. Necropaxx (T) {~} Saturday, 06:13, Oct 10
Good grief, all you have to do is Step 1. I just put the rest in so that you can easily join whatever projects you want from one place (although, for example, you can just run Climateprediction from their own site, and join our team, Team Uncyclopedia, from there).

Ehh... I've already got F@H and their Rosetta@home project sounds exactly the same. I'm already curing cancer, Modus! I'm just one man! Necropaxx (T) {~} Sunday, 07:19, Oct 11
It's all good. It's just another thing that you can do for nerd pride. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 08:24, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
My PS3 had F@H. My PC, as you may remember, has the pulling power reminiscent of a kitten attacking a galaxy. F@H was easily accessed on PS3, I remember (it's on the blink, atm), what about B@H? Primate blame study is intriguing. --nldr 01:37, February 21, 2010 (UTC)
The only one I remember for PS3 was PS3grid, which isn't PS3grid anymore and no longer has anything to do with PS3, sadly. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:04, February 21, 2010 (UTC)
Oh. I guess it's back to old-fashioned donating to charity then. --nldr 14:41, February 21, 2010 (UTC)
Or you could get a computer that isn't complete shit. Even my old dual core (which still sits beside my "new", almost two year old, computer) crunched numbers. It doesn't, now, because I made my new one to be quiet, so the old one sounds like a hurricane beside it. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:54, February 21, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, mate. I could if I my only source of income was selling things using mockney-intuition, if my motivation for a superpowerful computer was more than just being able to play E:TW and if I had lived my childhood and teen years living with my middle-class, but SD-oriented parents, who are not simply Luddite, but recognise that there is a line between things we really, really, really need and things that are slightly extravagant (plasma TV we got nine years ago > any HD TV of any kind). Do you have MSN? --nldr 16:44, February 21, 2010 (UTC)
I grew up with broke parents, too. I also spent a considerable time after that completely broke. It sucks. Eventually, you'll find a real job, you lazy bum. With luck that job will either be enjoyable or pay well (the two rarely overlap). With the former, you'll be something called "content" and the latter will give you spending money to paper over your seething rage at the endless night of an unjust universe.

There's a comedian (and Observer writer) in the UK called David Mitchell, funny guy and that. He wrote that he still has the same TV from his university years despite now being 35. I can see his point. : / --nldr 18:27, February 21, 2010 (UTC)
