The [email protected] server is now open for beta-testing.

Kaktwoos is the first application in test with several thousand work units available for processing.
Currently, this application only supports Windows 64-bit clients with an Nvidia GPU, this will be expanded to cover the majority of other platforms soon.

Kaktwoos uses chunk seed generation to find cactus stacks of 20 blocks or higher by locating neighbouring chunk seeds which overlap with the input chunk seed.
Cactus stacks generate when two overlapping chunk seeds generate a cactus on the same x, y coordinate.
The input seeds for Kaktwoos were generated by scanning all 281.7 trillion possible chunk seeds for cactuses of 10 blocks or higher. This yielded 42,497 seeds which were algorithmically reduced to a smaller sample (used as the input for Kaktwoos) by scoring each for the likeliness to collide with another cactus.

During beta testing, any issued credits will be cleared as the beta period ends, this is to ensure fairness once we are out of beta-testing.
Any work unit time estimates are inaccurate as we have not specified the number of floating-point operations required for work unit runtime during this stage of testing.

Computation errors during this stage are expected and should be ignored. We kindly ask you to leave your clients running for as long as possible whenever idle to allow us to take full advantage of this beta test.

Looking forward to the Linux support for this project, I'd love to donate some of my spare computers to this.

When will [email protected] be ran during the testing period? So far I've had it run for 5 seconds in the last day and a half and that was it, the rest of the time there was no work :P

Hi

One thing admins might want to look at is this:

The website is called minecraftathome

The project is called minecraftathome

but when adding the project to BOINC Manager, the project is called minecrafthome - note the absence of the letters "at".

regards
Tim

Thanks Timbo, the people at Berkeley gave me some instructions to resolve this yesterday, I'll sort it out.
