From http://lifeboat.com/ex/press.releases.bitcoins.hundred.thousand.dollars :

"to give back to the bitcoin community, Lifeboat Foundation has created the first Windows version of oclvanitygen in the world that runs well on high-end AMD cards. (Our version runs nearly four times as fast as the old version!) You can download it for free at http://lifeboat.com/oclvanitygen and can learn more about what we did on GitHub at https://github.com/samr7/vanitygen/issues/19. oclvanitygen is used to create vanity bitcoin addresses such as our bitcoin address 1Lifeboatu7Y9YqKQRcXfjWYJdXog9CS7r that begins with 1Lifeboat."

Note that a high-end AMD card is defined as an AMD Radeon 7XXX GPU. If you have a slower card then you can just download oclvanitygen as described at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Vanitygen And if you need a Linux fix for high-end AMD cards, read https://github.com/samr7/vanitygen/issues/19 to learn how to fix oclvanitygen.

Finally, oclvanitygen, no matter what the operating system, hates the latest AMD Catalyst drivers. So if, for example, you are running Catalyst 13.9, you would also want to use the AMD APP SDK Runtime from Catalyst 12.10. (So all your Catalyst drivers would be brand new except for the SDK Runtime.)

If you are working with no GPU, try vanitygen.

If you had a desktop you would likely be able to upgrade the GPU. We generated our 1Lifeboat with an HP xw4400 workstation that is also 7 years old. The key being that its GPU is much newer. We bought the ancient workstation for $250 because we were unlucky and the GPU we bought was incompatible with our much newer HP Pavilion Elite HPE-570t.

It's not easy being a kid. I have enjoyed life much more as an adult. I like control over my life.
