Jeff, this is going more and more off-topic, but
could you please drop a few words about ancient
seti@home clients here ...
There are some "about one hour" results out there
calculated on ev67 Alphas using a optimised 2.4(?)
Seti@Home client that utilised DEC/Compaq FFT
libraries ... is that right so far? (Obviously
Berkeley does not allow such vendor-optimisations
at this time.)
If that is true, how large was the benefit using
these libraries compared to a unmodified Berkeley
distributed S@H client at that time?
(who is running the S@H client on two Alphas using
Debian and NT4 ...)
