CUDA app testing
As some of you already know, we just started testing of CUDA Gromacs application for Linux and Windows computers.

To use it under Linux you should have Gromacs installed (apt-get install gromacs on Debian based systems).

Under Windows you should have Nvidia GPU with CUDA 2.3 capability and AVX256 capable CPU.

Also, ignore estimated running time reported by Manager as is currently set very high by me for testing purposes.

DrugDiscovery@Home is back
After few months and loads of discussion about future of our project we decide that project will be continued in a bit changed team.
At the moment, before we decide to involve other people in it we will stay with:

Andrey Voronkov as project main scientist.
Vladimir Berishvili - project scientist.
Krzysztof Piszczek - main developer, server administrator.
Krzysztof Faryna - project developer, server administrator.

Project is not connected with initiative any more on any way.

So, currently we will test server to be sure that applications and work units are ok and everything is going smoothly.
The cryptocoins featured will be completely changed in near future but at this moment it isn't in our main scope.

Ethereum wallet testing
In next few days we will start testing cryptocoins transfers to your wallets.
For those who will join to tests under "other account info" is new field with option to put wallet address to make transfers from us.

To get DrugDiscover "dummy" (at the moment) tokens you need in your wallet ad "Watch token" contract and put in this address:


In next few days we will transfer some those tokens to your account to check how fast and reliable is this way.

Also, we consider few options to make it:
"On demand" transfer - where you can make it when you like and receive whole collected tokens in one, bulk transfer.
"After batch" transfer - where we do transfer after finish each work units batch (and checking results).
"Daily, Weekly or Monthly" in this case we will make batch transfer to all users on set period of time.

We will be happy to get feedback from you with information what way will best for you, or if you have other ideas.

Change in administration
Hi all,

For the next couple of months I'll be taking over administrating this project. Having neigh on no experience with the BOINC back-end, I'm looking forward to it, if only for the added experience.

As the first thing, I have updated the forum software and merged the forums.
Then hacked the database to add the news forum. The script that should've done this didn't work. I am now trying to fix it so the news actually shows on the front page, not just in the 'old news' section.

There's no work as of yet. I'm busy trying to figure out how to get a Java application working with the new BOINC wrapper. But for this wrapper to work, we need more up-to-date BOINC server software, so guess what's next on the To-Do list?
