Raspberry/Orange Pi’s, PINE 64 and Other SBCs are back at crunching tasks!

Raspberry/Orange Pi’s, PINE 64 and Other SBCs are back at crunching tasks!

Hi everyone,

Today has been a busy day, as I’ve been configuring back my Raspberry and Orange Pi’s as well as my PINE 64 to crunch BOINC Distributed Computing tasks again. Also, I moved some of the Intel SBCs to their new place as you can see in the image below:

SBC 1

These SBCs has been offline since the last days of July and now I’ve put them up to work and contribute again.

They are mostly running Universe@Home tasks. You can see the tasks here:

That’s all for today!

Website updated to show BOINC tasks from my Raspberry Pi Zero. Also, now shows Suspended tasks correctly!

Hi everyone,

Today, I’ve made some changed to my software code and also added the Raspberry Pi Zero to the website.

BOINC To Web Raspberry Pi Zero

Some changes I made to the software, which is available in GitHub, are the following:

  • Status Log now scrolls to the end.
  • Option to erase the log on each update.
  • Suspended tasks now show correctly on the website as “Suspended”.
  • Password fields are now masked.

You can see that Suspended tasks will now be shown correctly on the website. Previously they were shown as “Running”:

BOINC To Web Suspended Tasks

That’s all.

Remember that I have set the software to update my website every 5 minutes! Check out my BOINC Tasks over here.

Hi everyone,

A few months ago, I got the Raspberry Pi Zero. This is a very small computer but it is extremely cheap! I got it just to try it as I was curious to see how will it perform compared to the original Raspberry Pi. It performs really well, I think a little faster than the original Pi, but that could be because of the speed of the MicroSD card I’m using here.

Anyway, here, you’ll see some videos I made about the Raspberry Pi Zero. Hope you like them:

Hi everyone,

A few months ago, I got the Canakit Raspberry Pi 3 Starter Kit. This kit comes with everything needed to get your Raspberry Pi 3 up and running. Included are the Raspberry Pi 3, AC Adapter, MicroSD Card with a USB Reader, a Case, HDMI Cable, Heatsinks, and several documentations.

What I’m doing with my Raspberry Pi 3? I’m using it to run the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computer, or BOINC for short and mining Gridcoin.

So, here is my unboxing video. Hope you like it!
