Personally I'm putting money on "frivolous lawsuit".

"I upset people, so my mission here is accomplished. "

You're only a year younger than me, so it's kind of depressing that you think making yourself look like a moron harms anyone but yourself. In fact, it provided me great amusement.

Have fun with that whole thing by the way.

(also, for some reason I had your DeviantArt gallery in my browser history from before you posted this comment, but I have no idea why. Go figure.)

Three things:

1.) You're an idiot.

2.) You do get stuff, there's prizes. You might know that had you actually read the post.

3.) See item number one.

BOINC can DEFINITELY support AMD GPUs, and in fact support OpenCL much more extensively than CUDA, so AMD GPUs absolutely monster NVIDIA ones.

Unfortunately, Rosetta@Home is not one of the BOINC projects that supports GPUs, but we have teams on other projects like DistrRTgen (as detailed in the post) that do support GPUs.

It's currently 581,562 to 1,765 in our favour, so... Not really.

That said, they haven't really done much in the way of advertising, so when they do, that number could change drastically.

I can't see any reasoning in that at all. The charities get more money, the communities get a flurry of activity, and the users participating get to have fun. It seems like you're basically complaining that having a competition makes the donating less "pure", which actually seems likmore self-adulating in itself ("My donation was more charitable than yours!).

For the current phase of Distributed Computing, competitions are an incredibly regular part of the system, and most distributed computing projects host their own competitions with regularity. Most people would donate even without the competition, but with it, it gives everyone a central place to go to, raises awareness, and gives an excuse to advertise it more. For instance, without this competition, very few people here would know about Rosetta@Home, so they couldn't participate even if they wanted to.

It does. And if you follow the link in the post, you'll note that of the four phases of this competition, only one is a pure monetary nation, so you can contribute immensely even if you aren't rich!
