Re: Digital TV

DVB-T theoretically delivers a better picture than analog TV. But practically speaking, you got several disadvantages: - As DVB-T is digital, there are only 2 states: It works or it doesn't work. When you watch analog TV, even if the signal is bad, you can still watch it (you'll just have some white...

Pretty please? :?:
IMHO that would just unnecessarily slow down the release of the 1.0 version. Just think about all the feedback that a 0.9 release would generate, taking more of Bars' precious development time.

Re: BarsWF feature wishlist

This might be helpful for example if your CPU cooling is poor and you computer crashes after a few minutes if you stress your CPU too much (I had this some weeks ago, but next week the problem should be gone as my new cooling equipment should finally arrive :) ).

I dunno what your movie taste is like, but if you like heist movies, I suggest:

  • Ocean's Thirteen
  • The Italian Job
  • Gone in 60 seconds
With some restrictions, I can also suggest The Thomas Crown Affair, but that a little too much soap opera for my taste...

How to get nvcc to use gcc 3.4

If you get errors or warnings when compiling the CUDA SDK, this might help you (you'll obviously need to have gcc-3.4 installed). On my Archlinux 64 bit box, these changes made the compilation of cuMD5 as a native 64 bit binary possible. This is a "clean" solution (without renaming the binaries of t...

How well have they done their job at ATI if you compare it to CUDA? (In other words: Will a Radeon HD 4870 X2 be faster than a GTX280 or will it be slowed down by bad drivers or something like that?)

What are you exactly gonna use for the ATI cards, Close to Metal or OpenCL?

Re: 32 GPU cores. Will it blend? :)

I just tried to imagine what would happen if you put 4 of these boxes onto one of these quad-sli-mainboards (using a $20 PCI graphics card to be able to connect your monitor to your computer). That would be 24 GTX280, or even worse, 24 Radeon 4870 X2s... Hooooooly shit.... :shock:

Wine actually isn't an emulator but a wrapper for the Windows API under Linux.

Running BarsWF with CUDA support under wine on Linux

I just found this howto, they seem to describe there how to get CUDA work with wine on Ubuntu 64bit:

Re: How high can you get

After all, they're both companies to maximize their benefits and their shareholder value, so these things are just plain normal everyday business policies. They want to make money, that's their prime goal, designing more (or less) good CPUs is just their way to get there.

Re: WPA support

Sure they aren't simply faking this to make people buy their stuff instead of just using BarsWF?

A direct benchmark where both tools have to find the same password with the same settings (as far as possible) would be very interesting I think... (Of course I do hope Elcomsoft is NOT faking this).
