7th of August

Farm news
I did some rearranging of the network on the weekend. Unfortunately it went wrong and I was without internet connectivity for a couple of days. Well a couple of machines could connect, just not all of them. I think I have things working again, but it will take a couple of days to confirm as the slower machines finish off work.

I should be picking up another i7 on the weekend which will join the Intel-GPU cluster once set up.

Android BOINC
As I mentioned last week various projects are supporting the Android platform. That has generated a lot of messages on the various project message boards about their problems. Personally I have no plans to use an Android based phone or tablet for number crunching as I don't consider them suitable.
