Upside is you not catching me messing up the nice new chart.....fixed now!
So long as I'm in the Pie, you can mess up all you want
Great job to all the crunchers! Sadly my Rogers internet was being stupid, as usual, and my rigs weren't getting WU :shadedshu So many problems
Great job, Norton, love it! Well done everyone
Mmmmmm, tastes gooooooood
Now we just need to get the flavors right
Awesome job with the pie bro!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's what were talking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well I'd say that the colors are not as important. The pie itself is, and it looks good, as well as the squirrels Bright colors are cute
All this pie is going to make me fat soon
I hear it's nice to share ;D
There will be an available slice on the 15th as I'll be relaxing and gaming on that day, which means I won't be getting any
Nothing wrong with a good gaming day
NHKS took a look at my Pie and really raised the bar using MS Office 2013!
Consider me impressed....Now I want to do it this way
That looks great! Definitely even better than the Free-DC pie. Will you keep doing this, or revert to F-DC when it comes back online?
The Free-DC pie is slightly more readable (because of the angle, closer to flat 2D which is optimal), which is more important than sexy looks, IMHO.
Absolutely, f yes. Thanks for the awesome job, I'm impressed. A few additional compliments
Loving the new pie
Consider it a work in progress- expect improvements on it daily.
Thanks again to NHKS for showing me the capabilities of Office 2013... hopefully I can improve it up to that point over the next few days
Nice pie norton - looks great!
Couldn't crunch much today following an early morning instability crash
But, I'm confused as to the points allocation. I know I can't beat t_skis awesome triple set up but I crunched for 9+ hours continuously with 2 7970's @ 1.05GHz on Sunday and thought I had more points. Not that the points mean much to me.
Here's a screenie of my breakdown over the past few days. Can someone let me know how the pie points are calculated? Is it more based on results returned?
I'll also only be able to crunch for a few hours each day (except at weekends, should be more). I don't like leaving my PC running when I'm out (I get water paranoia!)
The points as reported by Norton's pie calculations, the BOINC manager, Free-DC, BOINCStats, and BOINC Synergy are 1/7 of what the WCG Website reports. This originates from WCG initially using a different client; the adjustment was made when they switched to BOINC.
Expect to see me higher up in the pie charts soon--I've purchased KieX's two HD7770s
The Pie (Draft 2.1)
Comments (positive/negative), opinions, and suggestions please
Note-suggestions for lighter/darker on the flavors is encouraged
IMO the Lemon should be a more vibrant yellow--what is labeled Lemon should be Banana instead. Also, maybe make Ice more blue-ish? And the lime a vibrant, radioactive green?
I tried BOINC on my laptop again, and found that a 450MHz HD 5650 (400SP VLIW5 Evergreen) takes 12.5-13.5 minutes to complete an HCC 7.05 WU. Although extra points are nice, it doesn't seem worthwhile to make the effort to keep this laptop running at every possible moment (and be extremely laggy in the process) so I might just end up uninstalling BOINC if it isn't going to be running much anyway.
Yes - cement flavour haha.
Getting better I think
