    Does anyone else think zerad's bucking for a "Forum Smactard" title? :blah:

    Regarding the 4 Processors: Yes, run four apps at the same time. You could also devote one or two to a second DC program, like BOINC or Folding@home. :shoot2:

    oh elrado, i'm touched? :oops: :) Does discussing Seti's shortcomings make you uneasy? Why do you think that is?

    It's not the optimaztion :roll: It's simply the fact CPU cycles have to be spent to constantly redraw the image showing on the screen. And each unit twice is only in BOINC beta, not normal S@H

    Now if ya run SETI the same way as that link I gave ya and if that system is Hyperthreading enabled then ya'd be able to crunch 8 w/u's at the same time (if no hyperthreadin' support then only 4 w/u's at the same time). :devil:

    Regardless of which DC u like, this isnt a good way to welcome someone who wants to run DC program.
