    Yes sir- That's the main reason I was able to keep any ppd going earlier this week. They have generator backups so they will have power regardless of what happens (two of them ran for nearly a week straight following Irene last year)

    Awesome of you! :toast:

    So you have everything except the SR-2 going now?
    That's awesome! Did the maintain internet access as well? That would seem like a pressing issue too. Given the free electricity and backup power, why don't you shift more rigs there?

    Hell yeah thats good, i remember the day when it was about 20k ppd to get some pie.

    I used to get pie sometimes when i had my farm of dual cores (Athlons,Athlon II's,C2D and C2D based, Pentium D,ect)

    Looks like now i'm going to need a farm of i7's and a few decent GPUs

    I just have the 980x and the 3 gtx480's running. I still have 2 I7's, 2 gtx570's, 3 gtx580's, 2gts450's and the sr-2 sitting around doing nothing. I'm actually thinking of selling some stuff soon here, money is starting to get tight. :toast:

    I'm sorry to hear about your financial troubles :cry:
    Still no prospects on a job?

    LMK what you're looking to get for stuff if/when you decide to sell--I might be interested in taking some of that off your hands :)

    What's your WCG username?
    #2 indeed! Now let's see if you can defend that spot--although, be warned, Norton and Mindweaver are fierce :p

    It was back up earlier but no stats. Maybe by tonight it'll be running fine I hope.

    It's certainly bizarre. I think I prefer BOINCStats anyways--faster and more information to be had :toast:

    FreeDC's outage has spread to our badges :cry:

    Hopefully they will have everything back up by tonight....

    Thanks :)

    I had a problem today - my Homeserver was locking up, which affected backups, folder shares, etc. Since I wasn't getting much out of that anyway, I've had to shut WCG off on it. I believe I'll be able to make up for that and then some in a few days with something else I have planned. ;)

    Way to go Guy's!!:mad: You freaking broke Free-DC with all your MegaBallin' AMD Cards!!!

    It's kinda sad when a brother has to pull a 4-P rig off of F@H just to get a taste of some pie around here(i'll take Cement flavor:p). In other words, keep up the good work!!

    So do you have one of them doing WCG, or are they both still doing FAH? And how many GPUs do you have crunching now?
    And thank you--we do our best to make it tough :toast:

    I switched the Opty-6176 rig over after the last F@H WU. I'm getting work, but no HCC. Hopefully it will come, but I don't know if they will let me have 48 wu's at a time:laugh:. I would not mind seeing 11-12 million for the team though.... I'll give it a few days and see if I get HCC work.

    Still running the GTX460 and the GTX275. Don't have the 6850 yet.

    WCG pulls 810 watts vs 830-840 for F@H. Yeay , I'm saving electricity!!!

    Mighty appreciated! :toast:
    I didn't know you were getting a HD6850. That should be great for WCG! :toast:
    Strange that you're getting no HCC WUs. What I've done is set WCG to send me only HCC, no exceptions, and then create a large cache (so that if there is a temporary shortage I have WUs to keep me going while there are more released).

    I just downloaded a bunch of HCC WUs right now :toast:
    Fair enough, I'm used to BOINCStats, so I primarily use that. But both do a good job displaying our DC statistics, so I'm very glad that both of them exist :toast:

    Free-DC is back up right now, although it's showing everyone with zero points for the day.
