    Nothing better than some hot coffee on a Friday night after a long week of work plus I barely inched in for the 10 spot :clap:
    Nice battle there between Ion and Norton :cool: :cool:

    I certainly do enjoy having fierce competition once again--and Norton provides it admirably :toast:

    I am a bit surprised that I managed to hit 30k today---but no complaints ;)


    Those are the WCG credits, while Free-DC uses BOINC points, which are worth 1/7 as much :ohwell:

    Thanks, man!
    I am surprised myself that I am able to taste pie every day! :laugh:
    Unfortunately, due to this I am afraid I might not be able to keep this up for long. I am already barely making the top 10, so it's only a matter of time till a day comes when I fail to slip in :ohwell:
    (I am currently making ~5.5k PPD less compared to what I could make if I go munchking again)

    Well my cruncher is rebooting randomly, BSOD F4 and sometimes a hard freeze. Sucks but I have it were it will crunch when windows loads so fucking it. Ill drive it til the wheels fall off.

    I'm surprised about that, I must say...I found that HFCC and C4SW both gave a bit better PPD (~5-10%) than average, but those are both gone. CEP2 is below average too--and doesn't do a very good job checkpointing, unfortunately.

    What were you running before and what are you running now?

    Was running mostly Drug Search for Leishmaniasis with a bit of Say No to Schistosoma.
    I was pulling over 13k a day when it stabilized. Shortly after it stabilized, I switched to *everything* (CEP2 and HPF2 on the FX-8320 and everything else on the FX-8120). Now I struggle to get 9k...

    The latest calculations show this. CPU-only projects sorted from the best to the worst PPD. This holds for my chips, at least.
    • DSFL - 37.2995 BP/CPUh
    • SN2S - 36.1208 BP/CPUh
    • GFAM - 35.6213 BP/CPUh
    • CEP2 - 25.3562 BP/CPUh
    • HPF2 - 25.2593 BP/CPUh
    • FAAH - 23.0923 BP/CPUh

    BP/CPUh - BOINC Points per CPU hour

    Yes, FAAH gives the worst PPD for me.

    I know you all like to get a piece of the pie but, really?

    Crunching for me is, mostly, about helping to find cures for problems and diseases that WCG decides to help. I like points, but, not enough to not do some projects, and not others.

    Do as you will, just throwing a couple pennies. :toast:

    Nothing personal, honest. Plus I do find it interesting, the breakdown, but I just run them all. Until I get my meager farm back running, no idea when, I am happy with this crunching for me.

    Pie is pie... it's all about the work done.... and every work unit crunched is important

    As far as selective project choices... it really comes down to personal preference or optimization. Some systems do better on some projects than others or even cause errors. While this may reduce "points", it also reduces the amount of work done by your system (and wastes electricity) as well as create a burden on WCG- the failed/errored wu needs to be sent to someone else to do. Personally, I avoid certain jobs for these reasons:

    - HPF2 seems to have issues with some of my rigs so I avoid it on them if I see errors/invalids
    - CEP2 work units are huge compared to others and I typically don't run them on the "sisters" because they have a limited/slow connection on a free wifi network that I need to run manually to report them.

    Etc.... my $0.02

    Please elaborate- sharing constructively is encouraging :)

    However, I suggest bringing the discussion over to a new thread or over to the Team thread.

    Opting out for projects that do not "give enough" points is wrong. We are not doing this for points.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I myself crunch everything the rigs can handle. Only exception is if a project throws error on one rig, I then suspend that project for awhile and try it at a later date. Also when I was running the slower rigs I would not let them do extremly long wus.

    I do every project instead of cherry-picking them for points. All the research is worthy of being done, and if you find your points lacking, add some more computers. :)

    The only thing I've done in that regard is to limit CEP2 to my X4 620 since it doesn't get lots of ppd anyway and the X6s run every other project.

    That being said, I do this for points and for the (potential) prizes. Showing up there in the pie gives me satisfaction too. I can't honestly say that I crunch just because.
