    Donate@Home: Project update

    So, as confirmed one month ago we have now stopped doing crunching with gpus for bitcoins because at this time is not useful anymore (See ASICs).Most likely we will keep using donate@home as an alpha test project for gpugrid. We are a bit short of people these days, so it is likely to happen in September.A couple of things we would like to test.1) A cpu application that we had since long ago2) A gpu application for ati cards which is based on another code base than the one on gpugrid. We will be unlikely to be able to guarantee the same level of service for this, but this is why it is in another project.If the applications will be mature enough, they might be moved to gpugrid in a second stage.For donations. We now rely on you guys to make a donation and support the project via the standard donation page or via the amazon affiliate programme. The final amount of funds raised from d@H will be posted as soon as we receive the last transfer from mtgox. Stay tuned for September.gdf

    Hope everyone met their goals...
    The state or, to make matters more concrete, the government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they cant get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods. - H.L. Mencken

    It only seems fitting. I constantly had problems with donate crashing machines. I guess it is only fitting that it now move to beta apps which will be equally flaky. :-)
