  • Folding@Home clustering with Raspberry Pi 3

    I've recently begun working with my first Raspberry Pi 3, and I'm planning a new project.

    The idea will be to set up an expandable array of Raspberry Pis that will be 100% dedicated to Folding. Each Pi 3 has four cores at 1.2ghz each and 1GB of LPDDR2-900 SDRAM, as well as a VideoCore IV GPU.

    Short-term goals:

    • Build a base/rack for the units, ideally to be hung on a wall.
      -- Will include a powered USB hub for distributing power
      -- network hub/switch for connectivity
      -- room for further expansion
    • Enable one Raspberry Pi 3 with Folding@Home, maximize single-unit computations, enable remote monitoring.

    Once that's done:

    • Liquid-cooled SoC
    • Overclock
    • Add more units
    • Cluster units with BOINC
    • 100% self-contained solar powered
    • Upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit Linux ????

    Photos/progress will be posted here and probably blogged somewhere, so tune in to this thread for updates! Any guidance and insight along the way is much appreciated.

    The crosstown bus will take you to Woodward, and you can grab it at Avery & Forest. ($1.50 fare)

    This app will tell you when the next crosstown bus is coming.

  • Re: Cloud Storage 2017

    I have been using SpiderOak One for a few months now, and I love it. I Have 250GB of space for around $9/month. For everything that Dropbox has, SpiderOak does it better, with the exception of the mobile app. I guess we'll have to see where the mobile app goes, but I also understand that the mobile app has less features for security reasons.

    Good opportunity to pull out my new nun habit that I made. You know, besides casual Fridays.
