Sure, off course it is!

And now I'll take the gold, thank you.

Oh no you won't! :p

Your old machine is now awake and valid!
But only when you don't call graphics it seems...

Yea, once the graphics show, even if I close right after, there's no telling how long the workunit will take.
I guess it's the design that the captain implemented, to make the workunits longer to those who watch the graphics. It would be like a kind of reward but then again most people don't, and so when the quorum is set the lower claims (of those who didn't run the graphs) are selected for granting.

hmmm
make many small wu's:)
so all can crunch:-]


I remember that was once tried and was not very good. :P
I don't know where the threads about that lay, but once our Captain put at our disposal nothing more, nothing less that some 12,000+ workunits at once! The result was a major flood! Any boinc that contacted the pirates site was flooded with small workunits. I myself got some 300 of them in queue before boinc say that wouldn't fetch more!

I tried hooking into pirates from the custom boinc client of that japanese project, Cell Computing...
Who would have thought that it worked? :P

The Cell client

Now if only Pirates had some java workunits... lol

Will the source code and examples of the pirates apps be kept online for devs to study from and apply on future boinc projects (maybe)?

Nothing lasts forever... and we all knew this moment was coming soon. :(

Nonetheless we had a great trip! Our captain took us sailing through the seven seas and even more. The memories will stay with us forever, as will it be written in history about a Pirates project that, more than any other, helped make boinc what it is today! :)

To me it shows everything. Got an Nvidia Geforce4 4400 Ti with latest drivers
Just the top images seem to be a bit cut off on top, like dislocated to the outside of the screen, but if I resize the window they got to the corner automatically and never get dislocated again. (similar thing with starboard 4.12)
