Anyway, not the topic of the thread. Though I have been inspired to start looking into OpenCL for my ATI-based graphics card. Me, too! I have a radeon 57xx, and I'd love to see the sim running. Unfortunately, because the gpu code is cuda, it's nvidia specific. To run it you have to use either the c...

I saw this in the readme.txt while I was doing moving files around and couldn't resist passing it on. My tired eyes mistakenly saw Johan F. Prins and I almost ran for the hills lest I be compared unfavorably with a snake's anus for excessive curiosity. This sample code originally accompanied the GPU...

Thanks for the explanations. They'll prove useful when I get to do some actual coding (hopefully soon)! I intend to rebuild my environment tonight, and will describe what changes I've made in a readme just so it's clear (to others and myself). Once complete and working, I am going to try to make it ...

aye. when it's running, first press "c" to stop it from cycling through pre-defined parameters, then you'll have to adjust the sliders to get them into a reasonable range so taht the particles don't just all fly out. also make sure to set the particle filters, particularly z-bottom and z-width so t...

well yes, but my code is open source and publicly available via svn here . i'd love to have more eyes on it (and hands!) and i'm happy to answer any questions. I haven't said anything because I haven't done anything useful with it yet, but I am examining it. I plan to take the cuda code and convert...

And, how does a hot multi core desktop computer with a good graphics accelerator compare with the super computer circa ~1993? I understand even 64 bit processing would strain to achieve meaningful results. No need to guess. Top500 has their list from 1993, which tops out at 124 gflops. http://www.t...

More like fascist or neo corporatism

Sounds more like fascist or neo-corporatism than communism.

Elsewhere

You can find it elsewhere with some searching, but they really make you work for it. I couldn't find the first part, unfortunately.
