awesome I had no clue Seti was still doing their thing! I remember my dad running it like 15 years ago. thank you! Although i'm looking more for a project dealing with the programming aspects of supercomputing, not just getting running an already built program on a supercomputer. Still, thank you for the information.

I was thinking you might be able to look at the code for Seti, at least for a starting point. Have you seen this?

Try doing some rendering, that'd be fun. Make a small scene in Blender and see if you can figure out how to get Cycles distributed rendering up and running. If that's too easy, maybe try writing your own ray tracer!

That sounds like a good idea. I've always shyed away from graphics in general, but now that i'm learning more of the maths involved with doing such things it may be a nice route to go down. Is there any good prefabed scenes for blender? cause i am about as artistic as a rock.

Haha, so am I. No need for a prefab scene though, you can just copy paste a few cubes and other shapes around, add a few interesting materials. Also, you can set up a fluid simulation really easily, so that can add some interesting things to your scene. In fact, here's one I prepared earlier: http://craxic.com/tori_vp8.webm

Raytracing is awesome for super computers. Now the cool thing about raytracing is not only does it work for images, but a project I previously worked on was raytracing audio. Give each surface resonant properties and you can organically create incredibly realistic audio effects like echoes or various other aural distortions.

Play around with Tensorflow.

The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API.

That right up my alley and i had no clue about this package. I will most definitely be looking into this. Thank you very much sir
