I do Monte Carlo Simulation of Electromagnetic Transport in Real
Planetary Systems. What this means is that I can bring any
computer system in the Universe to its knees. It takes a lot
of compute power to do these calculations. The physical dimensions
and calculations require double precision (64-bit) floating point
So, I must have 64-bit systems. That's why I have more than 6 systems
Yes, I could set up a new system for 32-bits, but my issue is why should
I give up 64-bits because the rest of the world hasn't gotten to
problems of this difficulty yet. I'll just wait til they catch up.....
I love being a rocket scientist..... :-)
I'm just asking software developers to do both 32- and 64-bit versions
for both versions of (k)ubuntu 7.XX and those that follow. It is a
tough row to hoe, but they can do it.
