Anyone know what kind of hardware SR Base is using?
 
I guess I have hardware envy and wish I could run a lot more numbers more quickly on faster machines.

SRBase is using BOINC to share work. So there are dozen(s) of users contributing. This make for some impress amount of work being done.

Just be patient. Tesla knew what he was talking about. It's only a matter of time before the computers on the internet will collaborate as a single Mega-Core computer. :smile:

[URL="https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/SRBase"]SRBase-BOINC[/URL] is an application for solving Mathematical problems of Sierpinski/Riesel Base.

It can run under Windows, Linux, Macintosh and can be implemented as Virtual Machine.

This FAQ list should be helpful to start.

He was so close to being right... but vests are out.

He also called a computer a brain. You have to keep in mind that the interview was conducted in [B]1926[/B]. At the time neither PC’s nor Dressed-Shirt-Chest-Pockets existed. He described the future in terms best understandable to his contemporaries.

[B]How Pocket Tees Came to Be: The History of Shirt Pockets[/B]
….
Chest pockets on t shirts became common in the [B]1950s and 1960s[/B] as a result of the decline of the waistcoat and because more and more people were wearing t shirts as outerwear. The chest pocket provided a convenient location to store cigarettes, pens, and other small items.

Plus, vests are making a comeback.
ETA BTW, television was invented in 1927 and Tube-Screens width-minimums were constrained by the maximum electron-deflection possible at Main's Voltage and what could pass through a standard door. Point being they were not a flat screen/device till the invention of LCD's. Tesla's vision is truly mindboggling.

2) Tesla was amazingly on the mark on some things and equally off on others (long range wireless power transmission being an example of the latter).

Completely agree with this.

I often have to bite my tongue *hard* when the same people who think 5G will cause cancer complain that their Phones have to be plugged in to be charged.

I don't even bother to ask any of them if they have ever built their own crystal radios...

That is a Can-of-Worms and open to debate with no resolution possible since his seized documents (after his death) have never been released to date.
There have been demonstrations/news of Evanescent-Waves-Tunneling of up to a couple of meters (good luck finding the articles). And there are those who claim this was the basis of his Wireless-Power-Transmission. So perhaps he was further ahead than we are. :smile:

I can tell you that IMHO Tesla's Character-Assassination is continuous to this day.

Please forgive me for answering to a question for Ken. But could you please support your claim with evidence?

Some of us are really quite serious.

We notice things...

Assuming you know what "[B]Evanescent-Waves[/B]" are, FTR I haven't got a clue. :smile:

In Colorado Springs, where he stayed from May 1899 until 1900, Tesla made what he regarded as his most important discovery-- terrestrial [B]stationary waves[/B]. By this discovery he proved that the Earth could be used as a conductor and would be as responsive as a tuning fork to electrical vibrations of a certain frequency. [B]He also lighted 200 lamps without wires from a distance of 25 miles( 40 kilometers)[/B] and created man-made lightning.
