Still think it isn't worth your time to figure out how to get your simulation to checkpoint to disk every hour or two?

I never said it wasn't worth my time. I said it was beyond my current skill set.

Checkpointing might not be as hard as you think. It might be worthwhile to figure out how to checkpoint. The time invested in doing that could pay back hundred times and save you from endless days of frustration ;-)

Btw, when do you think NanoEngineer will be ready for downloading? I'm itching to start playing around with it.

I am going to hold off trying to figure out check pointing for a little while based on inside information (BRAG!)


I believe NE1 will have a public release in the first half of 2008.
