what happened to CD?
he's back at XS I believe.
he hasnt posted anything on any forum in a long time though.
Yup, he left about a month ago.
hes posted at XS recently. That lian Li B10 case he was doing for someone, posted vids and pics and all. He announced here when he left. But he didn't say about going back to XS, just said he was going to have some downtime. If I recall correctly thats what he said.
Just curious, what kind of points per day are you guys who get a piece of the pie making? I've cyberstalked a few people's numbers on our team grid, but I can tell the average points per day stat is a bit misleading, because of downtime and whatnot. My average PPD is at just under 1000, but that is way lower than it would be had I been crunching for the couple of weeks that I wasnt (had to resolve an issue over the power bill with my roommates... turns out it was the air conditioner, not my computers.) Anyways, I just hit over 10k points in one day today (and its not quite over yet ) and about to break 50k total, and as I transition to a new daily driver it should get higher, plus that new daily driver will be crunching as well (just a celeron dual core, but its still capable) so it will go up. I was just curious as to what kind of PPD it takes to get some nice flavored pie. My pie is dark chocolate flavored atm (the black lines in between lol) but i'd like to someday have some color. What does it take?
EDIT: I thought I should clarify, I mean what kind of points do you put up on a good 24 hour day of crunching. Like I said, average PPD is misleading, cause my points today and yesterday is almost as high as alot of people's average PPD who have had the pie, and that Im sure is due to downtime like I said.)
EDIT AGAIN: Okay so this post is mostly irrelavent now, msgclb answered my question ( i think inadvertantly) in another thread.
An FYI for anyone looking to taste the glory of pie, my 14-day average is 36,919 (5,274) ppd (and I'm usually in position 8, 9 or 10).
My server wasn't running any tasks for about 6 hours. I turned WCG off (among other things) to defrag and forgot to start it again. Doh!
@Papahyooie: I'm between 27,000-32,000 WCG points/day. I attached the image.
Dang two rigs down and I still manage some pie
Cool, cool, thanks for the numbers guys, though I kind of got a good idea looking at the free DC website (which i didnt heretofore know about) Once i get everything ironed out, from what I can tell I need to a little bit more than double my output (on my good days, stupid folding is mucking up things) , maybe 2.5x to get into the pie. Once it gets cooler I can afford to run all my smaller rigs so we'll see.
As a side note, i dont want to put a formal request in the wtt forum, but would maybe anyone be interested in trading a E8500 and this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186153
motherboard plus cash (200 maybe? seems close to what you'd give for a combo on newegg) for an i7 and motherboard? Or maybe even perhaps a really nice quad? Both are pretty close to brand new, been running less than a month. So maybe someone wants to downgrade, or needs a really nice mobo and processor for a gaming rig? I dont really do much gaming on my desktop anymore as i'm never at home, so my desktops are going to pretty much web browsing for guests and wcg/folding, and i'd like to really put up some real numbers in the near future.
EDIT AGAIN: ok so i may have to way more than double my output, i thought my best day was 19k but it was only 13k, so yea, triple my output not double, more like it.
How I managed to get a piece of the pie with my problems is beyond me as I had two rigs down today. Tomorrow the heat here is going to be unbearable and it could get worse.
9% woot. thank you i7
Damn, came home with three of my rigs down
Yeah, gotta hate that. For me about once a week BOINC crashes, and I lose at least half a day on one of my rigs.
freaksavior apple pie! Good Job bro!
I remember something about him joining some branch of the military?? If by CD you mean cdawall, that is
cdawall yeah, but no they were talking about Cyber Druid.
