New Memory Update

Now I could get to doing the new Predictor@Home WUs...except they don't have an application for Windows users. The project is demanding the client to have at least 1024MB of memory. But, the machines that actually have 1GB installed...only report some number slightly smaller than 1024MB as available memory. (about 1011MB). This is normal. Had the same problem installing RHEL3 once...it said minimum memory is 256MB, but wouldn't install on a machine that had exactly 256MB of memory. Something about the first MB isn't contiguous....

The only machines I have that are over the 1GB mark (or have 2GB's installed) are machines not supported by the current Predictor@Home project. This windows box, and my Solaris 10/Opteron Ultra 20 at work.

Only one of the two planned future computers will work....I'm still planning to get a Mac Mini....pretty sure it'll still become the HD DVR I keep meaning to build. Though I'm also planning to do the things an Apple TV won't do...but wanting both...namely being able to play downloaded content on my big screen, and surround sound setup.

The other is hopefully another Windows XP box of some sort.... Which likely means the Windows box will come first, instead of the Mac. Though the time line is still looking to be sometime in the late summer/fall time frame for both. :?

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
