|Your personal background.|
|Computing from beautiful, Northern California.|
I have maintained an avid interest in all things astronomical since I was 12 years old and got my first telescope. I just recently built new computers with modern hardware and operating systems. Felt it was finally time after 6 years. Have to say that the processing power of a multi-core CPU and GPU computer is impressive. I also have attached to the MilkyWay@Home and Einstein projects because I feel the projects are relevant to my interests in astrophotography and the need for up-to-date maps of the galaxy. These projects allow me to contribute my unused CPU cycles on my workstations. SETI@Home lets me vicariously 'view' through the Arecibo and Green Bank radiotelescopes and MW puts to good use the datasets coming off the SDSS. The image is of my SBIG STL-11000M CCD camera and a new astrograph, the DSI RC10C to capture a wider image area.
1. I like to be able to use most of my many cores on my processors. I like the use of the fma, avx and sse2 architecture applications since my Ryzen 5950X supposedly should produce fast crunching times using the fma application with its enhanced mathematics desidn.
2. I like this project more than Rosetta because the tasks are very consistent and predictable. Rosetta work causes me a lot more headaches. I like to contribute my compute cycles for the further understanding and solutions for this pandemic.
