Default 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.

When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is…. We shall be able to communicate with one another instantly, irrespective of distance. Not only this, but through television and telephony we shall see and hear one another as perfectly as though were face to face, despite intervening distances of thousands of miles; and the instruments through which we shall be able to do this will be amazingly simple compared with our present telephone. A man will be able to carry one in his vest pocket.

SRBase-BOINC 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.
