    So maybe that's why I'm over 200k today? Seems right maybe, as I want expecting that.

    BOINCstats info is usually off about 1/2 a day from FreeDC ... it's still a 24 hr number but not the same closing time as FreeDC.

    FreeDC matches WCG the closest for end of the day totals

    I use a HD 6670 and it crunches just fine. Slower than the 77xx but still decent enough (keeps up with the GTX 560/570).

    Actually, the 750MHz GTX 465 is about a 4 minute card. Even though the 465 and 460 1GB are pretty much identical in games, it seems the GF100 is more balanced towards GPU compute than the GF104 is. Admittedly, NVIDIA cards are atrocious for HCC, but I have some consolation in running the 470 and 465 since they run MUCH cooler than they do in F@H, and I figure both cards combined is like having another single WU 7950 since I can't do the multi-unit per card stuff.

    You know what I noticed the last time I tried the multi-WU trick 2 nights ago is that when I opened a new tab and went to Facebook in Chrome (had a TPU forum page open and that's it) the GPU crashed. I wonder if some other piece of software is causing the crashing in Windows 8. What browsers do you folks use, and were you web browsing at all when you tried the app_info trick and the display driver crashed? I use Chrome on the desktop (not the Metro version as for some reason it stores all the settings and history in a different place than launching the desktop one).

    I may have to get a 7770 when I get a chance,even if the gpu wu's come to an end soon for this one project I'm sure more projects will follow and durring the down time it could fold along side the nvidia card(s)

    Kind of tempted myself, as I could use another GPU anyway lol. Or, I can pick up another 465 on the forum for cheaper and SLI them. Decisions, decisions. :p

    I don't remember exactly but I'm pretty sure I had Chrome open every time, from the desktop. Tomorrow I'll try again in Win8 and see what happens.

    I've been trying to get the app_info to work on n3rdf1ght3r's computer. It's running windows 8, so i'll try again tomorrow if i have time.

    That is true, Free DC seems to have issues far more frequently than BOINCStats.

    Still no answer? Weird, you think he's seen it?

    :rolleyes: Yep, never did get a response from Bok. I even explained that I was a crunching member over here at TPU and that it wasn't some spam crap. Man, I figured he would at least respond at some point.

    According to that forum post link that KieX sent out, he was going to be away for a few days. I would guess that he has additional support offers in addition to your offer... said he was going to consider his options.

    Yea hopefully he gets something else figured out. The site is down so much, and is such a great site and Bok is so awesome for doing a site that has all the info everyone needs.

    I have had my web hosting up now for about 6 or 7 years and don't plan on stopping any time soon. That is one of the reasons I offered it up to him. :)

    I am more than willing to offer him unlimited bandwidth, space, and support free of charge for as long as he wishes.


    Also wanted to mention that if any TeamTPU cruncher would like some web space for a site, or even just for an FTP site, I will also give the free option as well.

    Seems like he needs a more resilient database server. I think he said he was leaving for the weekend or something, so maybe that's why he hasn't responded.

    Oh I tried to contact Bok several months ago though. I tried two or three times to reassure him it wasn't a spam message and never did get any response.

    Weird. Hopefully he is able to resolve the problem soon as FreeDC is like the only WCG stats site I can actually navigate and understand. For some reason (maybe I'm dumb with this) I can't find my personal daily stats on most of the other sites, only project overviews or whatever. At least F@H has EOC stats, because I can easily navigate those too. :eek:

    Here's your page from BOINCstats:

    http://boincstats.com/en/stats/15/user/detail/652421

    Agreed that FreeDC's info/format/etc. is a lot more user friendly but this is an ok backup site :)

    Yay, I'm back on the pie! Can't wait to get my cute little 7770 to throw in my machine.

    Also, great job everyone else for booting me out of the pie for a while. I may have been unnecessarily grumpy about that for the past month, and I apologize for my poor attitude. Good to see our team kicking ass, though. :D

    You've been just fine about it :toast:

    I hope you enjoy the HD7770---that model is affordable, but it looks like a lot of NE reviewers have issues with it :ohwell:
