We are figuring out that more and more people own a PS3, but the lack of compatible projects (only 2 available, "PS3GRID and Yoyo@home) is limiting the installation of the BOINC Paltform on them. I would be interesting that you develop an application for Linux PowerPC and so could take advantage of an enormous computing power that will be raising with time to reach, we hope, the PetaFlops. That was possible for Folding@home so why not for BOINC.

SETI has a SPE application, too.
SIMAP has a PPE only application, like Einstein.

The project admins has written, that the LHC application was written in Fortran and there are only compilers for MacOS and Windows available. If you compile the application with a different Fortran Compiler on other platforms you would get different results, which is a no go for LHC. - This was the cause why there is no MacOS application for LHC.

I heard someone was still coding in FORTRAN, so you are the one ;)

A lot of science application are still written in Fortranm, inlcuding lot of BOINC projects.

Climateprediction.net app is a few million lines of FORTRAN code.

That just means your particle accelerator crashed quickly. I had some units take 15 seconds.

it works it's just a part (1/6) of a sixtrack i guess.

What about:
10409706 9626561 20 Dec 2007 6:19:06 UTC 20 Dec 2007 20:13:56 UTC Over Success Done 1.06s

But somebody managed to get 0.98s ...

But this is way OT :-|
