I have not played FPS for over a decade but I have a soft spot for "stompy robots". I bought Crossover at the end of last year, just to run Mechwarrior Online(and support Wine/Crossover) and it installed Steam and MWO without a hitch and it works really well. It is the 32bit version(DirectX 9). DirectX 11 is a work-in-progress.

This is my experience as well. I have supported a shared memory system and now a distributed memory cluster, the resilience of the latter means job resubmission of jobs related to the failing node is the standard response. A failed blade (Altix brick in my case) meant the entire numalink connected system would go down. Component-level resilience and predictive diagnostics help. Job suspension and resumption and/or migration is also useful to work around predicted or degraded component failure.

Journal Journal: Honours Update

Honours completed sometime ago, with a mark that enables further research. The model results were nothing to write home about. I was able to tweak the model to match, broadly, alkalinity observations around towards the end of the last glacial period. I did also get to learn more about myself. After years of denial, I sought help with mild depression and my outlook improved significantly.

Thanks for the links, especially the SIAM one. Some of those ideas I touched on in my Honours thesis as my project was directly affected by the issues of lost programs; old media storage where was were parts of programs found; a paper with an idealised function only described with a graph; incomplete mathematical description of a model component. I have begun planning future research along with a methodology to avoid a lot of the above issues.
