    Awesome :)

    1mil should be very doable for us then :)

    Today should be a pretty good day for me now that I have both GPUs going. And then I can't wait for when the GTS450 arrives :D

    Unfortunately my rigs will be down Tuesday AM until Thursday PM, but the future looks bright. By Monday I should be settled into the new place with rigs a'blazin. I will also have my second -bigadv rig up and running at that time. Keep on Folding Boy's!!!!

    I have been missing my i7 rig's PPD :(

    May have to look at getting another -bigadv rig running again.

    Is it still best to run it on a VM or can it just be run like a normal SMP?

    Just like normal SMP, just add the -bigadv flag after -smp. Linux systems aren't even getting bigadv WUs ATM due to a pretty significant issue regarding bigadv and the A3 core

    Thanks [Ion] , been awhile from I run a -bigadv rig.

    Sounds better just running it as normal SMP with flags.The VM was a bit of a pain to manage.

    Will look at this over the next couple of weeks.

    Much easier, and uses far less memory. Bigadv + 1 GPU can run w/ XP on 2GB ;)

    The above is a snapshot taken about 2 1/2 hours ago. Unless they found some mojo then when EOC updates in about 1/2 hour they will be behind us. Let's not let them turn into one of our 'Threats".:)

    With everybody spending on their rigs I decided I would use my candy money for this month so I've got a GTS 450 in transient that should be here Wednesday. It looks like I will need to spend next months candy money on another GTS 450.;)

    Separating my gpus nets me a total of 10k ppd!:eek:
    [​IMG]

    [ION] is right though. That 2Ghz P4 doesn't have HT. I guess it's time to replace it. :p

    Also, I'm having a bit of trouble here. Lappy and Prof (down for repairs) are running Ubuntu and Debian respectively. Both have the F@H folder shared using Samba. Both report in to FahMon normally. Farm also has Ubuntu, also has the F@H folder shared, it sees that it's online, sees most of the stats, but doesn't seem to be able to calculate the PPD. What am I missing?

    Off-topic Edit: This workunit sucks.

    Not bad, not bad :)

    But you'd get far better PPD on that laptop with SMP. Even without bonuses, it would get more than 150 PPD (probably closer to 350 or 400) ;)

    Just realized my laptop does indeed support 64-bit. I'm not sure why it's not running 64-bit linux. Core Duo T5200. *facepalm*

    Almost daily, it seems :laugh: :toast:

    My goal is to end up doing ~100k a week, if I can maintain that, that's ~5mil a year :)

    At the rate I'm going I should do about 6,570,000 per year. Of course, my output will only go up, not down. :D

    Very much so :)

    I think that 5 mil a year is a good baseline goal, be interesting to see if I can maintain it :D

    Might be forced to outsource GPUs for FAH :laugh:

    5 million a year is a lot. Enough to rock my socks!
