    OProject: optimized and non-cpu apps added

    FYI, Oproject has added a non-CPU sub-project "ALX". It pays a lot, especially when you consider it is just free additional credits.

    Also, they added optimized, manual apps.

    However there are no instructions (yet). I assume you need an app_info.xml, but I don't know if there is more to it or not. I haven't tried it out at all yet.

    It takes a dedicated effort to know what's happening on every project, but that's what keeps Zombie in the MM lead. Better yet, we all get the benefit as well as Zombie always shares the good tidbits with the team. It's a win-win.

    Re: OProject: optimized and non-cpu apps added

    I have a feeling that this project is going to get abused. The ALX application's code can be found in the olib code on google. The code does absolutely nothing. It sleeps for one day, writes a "1" to the output file, and then exits. Talk about cheap credit. Talk about easy to abuse. I'm not sure if it has checkpointing or not but if it does, one could probably spoof it easily to think every 10 seconds that a full day had passed.

    [Edit]According to the project's application information page, the ALX app does checkpoint and but finishes in 1 hour or so which means it might not be the same code as the in the olib source.[/Edit]

    Is this similar to freehal (nci) and, if so, do we need to do anything special to get work?

    Just turn on ALX in your project preferences.

    It is similar to freehal. But for this one, you cannot select a quantity. It will download a buttload of tasks and run them. I haven't had the chance to figure out if is a pre-defined number per core or per host yet.
