Since 2004-01-19, A native MOS dnet client was availabe for the public. And the happy cracking begun... And now nearly 2 months later we reached 105358 Blocks. And that means, we are only two days away, to leave the PPC equipped Amigas behind us. To bad actually I really would have had a nice competition, but it seems there are realy few PPC Amigas left, much worser, there seems to even no OS 4.0 dnet client. Anyway, many of the MOS clients are cracking for Team200 "Amiga" anyway, and hopefully there will be some more joining. And btw, hope to see MOS 1.5 soon, this should give an enormous Speedup to the dnet crew, as with MOS 1.5, Altivec Support is enabled :-)

Pegasos/MorphOS platform stats:
http://www.morphos-news.de/guides/rc5-72/dnet-mos-stats.php

My stats (;-)):
http://stats.distributed.net/participant/psummary.php?project_id=8&id=433721

Yes, the Pegasos/MorphOS effort is moving *fast* forward! :-) Only the top 5 on that list seems to be out of reach when it comes to the number of keys crunched per day!
:-D

If you have a Pegasos, please join the effort! Everything you need to know you can read here (it's really easy):
http://www.morphos-news.de/guides/rc5-72/index.html

And if you have any questions regarding installation or setting the app up, you should visit this thread:
http://www.morphzone.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=1491&forum=3

Just do it! :-)

Altivec makes it about 2.5 times as fast on the G4 @ 1GHz compared to the current, non-altivec enabled crunching. The stats will "explode" once MorphOS 1.5 is here!
:-D

In reply to Comment 1 (hooligan/dcs):
What's the fun in racing? ;-)

Actually, I joined mainly because I wanted to test my home made cooling solution for my G4. It has been running non-stop at 100% for almost two weeks now, and it runs very cool!

But then I kind of got stuck in this "racing" effort, and I kept the client going to make a contribution to the platform stats. It's actually kind of fun, and I check the stats on the stats-page every day!

You should install the client too! You can have it running in the background to use up all idle CPU time that would go "wasted" otherwise!

How cold hearted are you!? Just think about all those poor CPU cycles that would just die the horrible *idle death*, an empty life completely in vain, without having the chance of making a difference in this world!!!
:-O

No, give them a meaningful beeing, let their short lives mean something, and let their sacrifice make a difference!

In reply to Comment 7 (Dirk-B):
Are you talking about the links? I simply left any HTML code out and just pasted the link as pure text. The "ann engine" then makes the link active. Note that this only goes for comments, if you are posting a new "news item" you must use correct HTML code for everything you do.

(Speaking about this, wouldn't it be nice with a "preview" button in the "add comment" page?)

can you place explained what this as to do whit
"there seems to even no OS 4.0 dnet client."

AmigaOS4.0 is not out an bbr is trying to stop it from coming out, we AmigaOne owner invested cash on the computer, and you take pride in writing propaganda.

I crack the keys on my AmigaOne since early 2003,
so that would be more then a year by now. ;)
Ok, it is not with AmigaOS for the moment, but
what, it is alot faster then on my A1260/G2. :)

In reply to Comment 11 (Kjetil):
Unfortunately a lot of people took a lot of criticism when they said 'Amiga OS4.x is years away.' (Some of them bought a Pegasos, some of them just left.) These people, however, have been proven right and the temptation to say 'I told you so, is far, far too great' especially the level of personal attacks that were around at the time.*

Fact - AOS4.x is not publically released.
Fact - There is no publically available AOS4.x dnetc client
Conjecture - when AOS4.x is publically available there will likely be a dnetc client version for it.

Fact - in the public domain, Genesi has stated that they would like to see AOS4.x on the Pegasos platform.
Question - how does this publically widespread statement match with your flamebait that 'they' are trying to stop AOS4.x coming out?

P.S. * I told you so :P (No hard feelings eh?)

In reply to Comment 9 (takemehomegrandma):
In this case, the HTML didn't work because it was spread across two lines. ANN should have basic routines to handle both HTML links and text-only links, but only if they are well-delimited and not on multiple lines.

As for adding new features: comment previews would be fairly trivial to add, if I didn't have more urgent work to do elsewhere.

Most Pegasos users contribute to the Team Amiga Effort. Me too. Don't think "enemies of the community" would do that, eh?

(This is only a parenthesis to avoid any misunderstandings: Of course
you are part of the Amiga platform, that's not what I meant, what I
meant was that your keys will be registered as PPC/Linux platform,
plus the Amiga RC5 team, and last but not least for you as an
individual, that's all! "Amiga" is a state of mind! :-) Another thing
was that PPC/Linux is *really* far ahead, and hardly within reach!)

I was not forgetting the Brit bikes, they
are a class on their own and are the better
ones if you look at the two other groups.

Perhaps the 3500+ daily blocks from Pegasos/MorphOS would make a
difference ... *IF* everyone also joined Team Amiga of course ...!

Well, to be fair, a bike, like many things in life, is what you make it : if you want to spend too much money to live a marketing dream at the weekends, there's a hype machine for you; if you want to look like a motorcycling superstar in over-revved dayglo vomit, we got what ya need; if you just want to ride a bike, take your pick...

Wel i am more in the last group. ;)

Maybe that is why i am content with
the Amiga also, and don't need hype
or turbo machines, just having fun
that is the most importend thing.

Hi all.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge on this matter, but I do not understand these numbers...

"PowerPC/Amiga OS 109,795 42 1
PowerPC/MorphOS 109,153 3,795 here we go!
"

What do they mean? How can it be PowerPc/Amiga? Are they meaning PPC cards on Classic Amigas? What does that '1' means -109795 blocks in 1 day!!??? Not possible, isn't it?

Saluditos,

Ferrán.

In reply to Comment 29 (Ferry):
Yes PPC Card equipped classic Amigas are meant.
109,795 means the total Number of Blocks cracked by this System
42 is the number of Blocks cracked for this day.
1 Is the Number of Days it will take for MOS to pass this System,
for PPC Amiga that means, bye bye tomorrow.

Thanks for the info.

BTW, did you noticed this "X86/Mac OS X"? Weird... As weird as "Z80/WinNT" ;¬) Or perhaps not, who knows....
