I have been messing around with FITS liberator app. and its cool! All freaking kinds of adjustments and spectrums! You can save as a TIFF, which most photo editing apps will open, if not, free converters are out there, so you can make some cool looking pics.

Hubble Telescope Contest Challenges Public to Find Celestial Treasures.

It will take some reading, and there are two different challenges, 1 you sift thru data stuff and 1 with actual image processing with real actual raw data. And you can download some cool imaging software. Give it a shot!
If this is wrong to post this, delete, I apologize.

My "radio" is playing a mix of Steve Vai and Korn..At about 100 decials, bass just-a-thummpin!
Ah yea!! No one home in my complex!!

Great!! Sounds fantastic!! I look forward to crunching here with my 2 HD5870"s and or HD4670.

For the time being, it would seem that this GPU re-branding activity is restricted to the Russian market, but we'll certainly keep an eye out in order to see whether AMD is going to push this renamed Radeons to shelves in other parts of the world as well.
Alto they are talking about old cards in Russia..Crunching.... I cud not agree with you more!
It's not so simple:

for dnet/milky/cc you want ati card
for prime grid/gpu grid/einstein you want/need nvidia.

As I have said the factors for my gfx selection was cash_a_rinoz and the need for a DP gfx. Imo the 5870 fit that bill for the projecs that I crunch, to me its an all around mid end card..Oh I just read Nvidia will be coming out with an 4/12 core gpu cards...Im sure at a premium price to match! I wish I cud buy an 2/4 core gpu fermi..

As you are aware though an ATI 5870 will not crunch here at Einstein, or several other projects either because they use Nvidia cards ONLY! YES the 5870 is a very nice card, but it is not the total answer to crunching.

The reason I choose the hd5870 was money...Hello, also if you took my statment as the 5870 be-all-end-all gfx card...well..you are wrong. Money and the card being a DP card was the determing factors...Yes I know 5870 will not crunch here...but I sure do hve A"plenty of cpus to do so. Imho ATI cards are better than Nvidia, except the gtx 5xx and Fermi cards, are just re-branded cards with code/memory tweeks, where as ATI cards are all built from scratch, imo.

Hello all... the average cpu has xx gflops where as an good gpu will have xxxx gflops quadprupel the amount of work processed, hench gpu crunching is more efficiant and faster. I switched to 2 HD5870 = 1600 shader cores running 2720 gflops my i7 950 runs 32 gflops at best....Card memory is also crucial as well as system ram/speed.anyway over nite my RACwent from 75000 to 125,000 and still climbing. I have 15 cpu cores(4 ht) 2 hd 5870 1 hd4670...One rig,Intel i7 running 8 E@H with ati Collatz, 1 rid AMD quad, 1 hd 5870 4 primeG 1 ati collatz and so on...Bset advice invest in a mid range HD card..The hd5870 are DP. I must atest I am no in the for a score...but it is a nice add on

Hello all...I have 5 case fans and 2 small north/south bridge fans, 2 HDD duel small fans per HDD. Now in winter all four Puters keep me nice and warm, there all in my living room, now in summer a whole diffrent story! Nothing gets over 95deg F at 100% with a CUDA card, fan on it of course. But liquid cooling is the only way to go...Funny though..put the towers in a refrigerator or make a refrig cooling box for the towers or even make a box with an window unit and funnel the ac into it..all dependant on yes...you guessed it MONEY.

Just think...working in conjunction with the James Web ST(when the get the darn thing gets up,2011,2012??) LISA finds sumtin good in the GW spectrum, just point that bad boy and see what we got! I do understand the JWST has nothing to do with GW, but we can see the origin in the rest of the EM spectrum.
