If anyone missed the Kickstarter drive, you can now reserve a board, first come first served.

Should we do this ? Or it will be shipped automatically because of reward choice at time of pledge drive ?

If we're pledged then we'll get ours when they are ready, this is for people who missed the Kickstarter pledge drive, say if Urs or _heinz or Mike decide they want one too.

[Off Topic: On] I've also pledged for the Elite: Dangerous Game, just two hours left if anyone is interested [Off Topic: Off]

Sort of related, the next generation of AMD and Nvidia GPUs will sport numerous ARM cores.

Dunno if you can run Ubuntu on them.


Debian, definitely. Debian runs on ANYTHING  ;D

Their frontman just contacted BOINC. He wants BOINC to support Parallella! Very good news!

Quote from Andrew's mail:

Quote
There has been quite a bit of interest in using the Parallella
computer with BOINC applications and I'd like to find out what work
would be required to add support for it / the co-processor.

The computer has a dual-core ARM A9 processor (Xilinx Zyqn) and runs
Linux (Linaro Ubuntu), but in order to take advantage of the Epiphany
floating-point hardware I'm not sure whether this would need adding as
a platform, or perhaps Parallella (ARM+Epiphany).

There is also interest in running SETI@home and I was thinking this
might make a great exemplar application when developing BOINC support.

That sounds possibly do-able - though with a 10:00 Sunday start, I'd need to get a train down the day before and spend the night in a hotel. Anyone else thinking of doing that, and maybe meeting up for a beer somewhere?

I'm tempted to go too, think i'd need to stay in a hotel overnight too, and i'd certainly meet for a beer.

In the latest Parallella Blog they have done a roundup of the projects in progress, and stated one of their priorities is:

A Parallella optimised SETI@home
