To be fair, that's not a simple task. This thread has 881 posts (including this one). That takes some time...

OTOH, it is doable in one long reading session.

Meh. Read the seminal threads for the creation of the major GPU applications' development. Some of those are nearly 3000 or 3500 posts each. Take notes with urls for later reference. Reread about annually in the first few years of GPU computing.

You might be addicted to GIMPS if you have a Dewey Decimal system for this forum...

"There is always something worse, than what one is complaining about." - slight paraphrase on the second part of this: "Nothing is ever so good that it can not be better, but nothing is ever so bad that it can not be worse." To complete the truth table - "Nothing is ever so good that it can not be worse, but nothing is ever so bad that it can not be better."

One of these four is a Slovak saying, but I'm no longer sure which one because I think all four of them are equally valid, and thus I think of them as being inseparable.

To the post -> Yes, that's even longer reading. But I've intentionally written: "OTOH, it is doable in one long reading session."

Thank you. I was well ****ed off when I read the comment from Uncwilly. I thought the thread was suppose to be a bit of fun. There are of course umpteen references to the number of computers people own, the amount of heat generated, and the electricity cost. There's another about grow house, and this being detected by the electricity company. Well here, when people take over somewhere and grow weed, then normally fiddle the electric, so that's often hard to detect. Thermal imaging detects the heat, even if the metered electricity is low.

I thought the comment was rather personal. I think had anyone else written the exact same words, nothing would have been said.

Several things went through my mind after reading the comment from Uncwilly,
1. pkill -9 mprime and leave this project.
2. Finish exponents I'm doing (I submitted two earlier today, and a third will finish in 15 minutes), then leave.
3. PM Uncwilly and ask why was the comment made. It seemed rather childish.
4. Eventually I decided to ignore the comment, and carry on.

If you want to let one post from one person discourage you then that's your choice of course. But I'd say don't let others control your actions. Do what you want to do.

And I don't have any moral high ground here either. I also have posted repeat stuff and been called out for it. Such is life, we can't all be perfect. Life still goes on.
