BlastOne, it's a Linux application right now. You're running Windows. Wait for the Windows application and you'll get some work units. Otherwise, you'll need to either run a Linux machine, or dual-boot, or use a virtual machine on your Windows box.

After a rough start at my end, I hope the w/u's from your project continue to flow. From a previous post, I now see why nothing is coming to my "windows" based computers.[/b]

Hello,

When do you expect the work for Windows based computers will be sent out?

Thanks

I am not receiving work units after multiple attempts. Are there work units available and if so please assist in helping me get some so I can crunch some units out. Thanks.

There is still application for linux only. You can now try to install linux in some virtual machine.

According to a site boincstats Windows-system are used in 4 times more than by Linux. Lack of a Windows application deprives the project of a large number of participants. Work with the virtual machine is accessible not to all participants.

Sure enough, one by one, just like the good predictable brain dead little lemmings they are, every Winblows user comes to the edge of the cliff, babbles forth what the previous lemming babbled forth then plunges over the cliff. Hilarious!!

What's even more hilarious.... they all sincerely believe they are telling the rest of the world something profound, something nobody but them has been able to figure out. ROFLMAO!!!!!!

Would someone please provide some bug infested, security risk piece of crap software for the lemmings so they'll STFU? They'll love you for it and they'll love you even more if you charge them $200 for it.

You about what told it? The Windows application isn't necessary? It is not necessary to speak about it?

The best selling car brand is Ford.

Ford is nowhere near as good Honda, BMW, Toyota, VW etc.

But Ford is the best selling. Ford is the most popular.

By your logic, roads should be built that Fords cannot drive on becuase there are better cars.

:-P

Cheers,

Al.

You missed the point. Here it is:

If I build a road that your Ford isn't capable of driving on then don't talk to me like I'm an idiot and tell me how Ford is most popular and how I'm depriving myself of having all the Fords drive on my road because I already know Ford is most popular and I already know Fords can't drive on my road. Repeating the obvious over and over and over doesn't reinforce the point or make the messenger appear intelligent it just makes the messenger look like a pompous ass.

It's been mentioned many times at this project, in these very forums, by the admins themselves, that a solution for Winblows is in the works. Why is that not good enough? Why do lemmings need to stand up one by one and tell us what we already know: that Winblows outnumbers Linux and the project is missing out by not having a Winblows app. The admins already know that. Repeating it over and over and over is not going to speed up the delivery of the Winblows solution.

We should be able to discuss whatever we want in these forums and I support that 100% but if the discussion is about the admin being an idiot (and that is EXACTLY what the repetitive messages about Winblows being more popular and the project losing out on CPU cycles is all about) then fine let's discuss that point and see who the idiot is.

BTW, Ford might not be the best vehicle but they have some very nice options. For example they now offer a heated tailgate option on trucks sold in Canada.

Probably the project until enough computing resources. Jobs is not enough. Increases productivity is not necessary.

If I understand correctly from reading the info at this project and its forums, this project's work requires enormous resources so I assume (correct me if I am wrong) the admins probably want to attract many more volunteers and increase the work flow considerably. I am certain they will find a way to allow Winblows machines to work too but some Linux apps are incredibly difficult to import to other platforms and vice-versa. For example, the task of porting the Linux apps used at Test4Theory project is so difficult they decided to not even attempt it and to use a virtual machine instead. Even Linux hosts at T4T have to run the virtual machine at T4T.

I'm sure the Asteroids admins are glad they have interest from Winblows users but talking to them as if they don't already know they need Winblows support is an insult to them. It won't help them develop a Winblows solution any sooner. If you wish to insult them then be prepared to receive some insults and know that as a Winblows lemming you are an extremely easy target. If you wish to add something productive or at least humorous to the discussion then I'm sure the community welcomes that but annoying twit lemming type comments won't get you what you want.

Yes, but, Windows is more popular though innit? Isn't it though? Isn't it?

Lordy. Either gay talk, or dagorath has got himself a new account. Never seen good old dag and joobly in the same room. CONSPIRACRY ;)

Cheers,

Al.

p.s. FTAOD I think we've got a live one, so trolling is allowed. It's the law. But maybe only in Canada :)

In some contexts it is but in many contexts it's not.
