I just checked the stats, and the ASP distributed computing cancer research
team ranked #58 out of 500 yesterday for results returned!

We currently rank #249 out of 5000 in lifetime results - pretty good
considering we just started on 9/22/02. The team that's #248 started work
on 4/8/01.

If you're part of the ASP team, thanks for donating computer time! If not,
you can get more info at http://tinyurl.com/iuvp.

Am I correct that you need to be on the net constantly to
be on a team?

I found the statement that says software is available for
Linux clients, but the description of job assignment and
control seems to imply that those on dial-up, who may
be on the net for a limited period on any given day, would
not be good candidates.

Wondering.

I think dial-up is ok... I'm pretty sure my use of the program predates my
use of DSL. I know that it continued to run on my laptop when it had no
connection, and sent the results in and got a new set when the connection
was available.

Dial-up is just fine. The program is set up to automatically send its
data packet back to the server, and then automatically download a new
one. If it's unable to do this (such as, if you're on dial-up and
you're not connected), it'll back off, and the little blue pill icon
in your system tray will have a yellow exclamation mark on it, telling
you it needs to pinch a loaf into cyberspace.

Just made a pot, Steve, and it's really getting my day going.

According to James D. Beard <jdbeard@patriot.net>:

Where did you read about Linux support? The download page
at grid.org only talks about Windows software.

Cheers
Steffen.

My error. The software will run on Linux but only under
the WINE Windblows emulator.

So, if you really want to deal with the problems
inherent in running an emulator...

Cheers!
