Hardware and software

You are encouraged to do class assignments on your personal computer. A relatively modern graphics card is useful, but not necessary. OpenGL is readily available on Linux, Windows and Mac platforms. The support code has been tested on all of these platforms.

If you do not wish to develop on a personal machine, you will have access to the 'myth' machines located in Gates B08. These 3.2 Ghz DELL Dual-Xeon Linux boxes, named myth1 - myth29 are available for remote access. All students with leland accounts automatically have accounts on these machines. Home directories on these machines are shared with other Stanford Computing Clusters using AFS. If you do not have a leland account, consult this ITSS web page. Registered students will get an extra 200MB of disk quota for the quarter. Please notify the course staff immediately if you do not notice this quota increase withing 48 hours of officially signing up for the course.
