A man by the name of Michal Pohanka put together a nice OpenCL test using Delphi 7. I decided to explore it a little bit. OpenCL is a nice little library that allows you to take advantage of your GPU for scientific computations, sometimes giving you 1000/1 speed boosts for complex operations.
I’m sure I’m not the only person out there that checked out his demo. and the 32-bit version compiled and ran on Delphi Xe6 without error, despite the fact that he wrote it for Delphi 7.
However it took a couple of little modifications to get it to work under 64-bit. I figure I’ll just tell you what I did to make it work. It is pretty simple once you know the magic sauce. Continue reading How to get OpenCL 1.2 to work with 64-bit Delphi
As the internet is full of “trolls” and “haters”, of course, all kinds of people came out of the woodwork to tell the inventors of Solar Roadways how stupid their invention was, and the inventors took offense to it releasing this official rebuttal.
I figure I’ll offer a rebuttal to their rebuttal because, in my opinion, they’re still missing a few screws. Continue reading The Solar Roadways Scam – A Rebuttal for a Rebuttal for a Rebuttal
