Anybody who contributes is not slackin'!
Hey bro sorry i'm responding so late.. I've been really busy. I've got the x6 back up and crunching strong! and a few more.. hehehe from 19 to 26 rigs crunching strong right now! Keep up the good work bro!
26 is quite a few....I'd hate to see the power bill for that
I'd guess that the 24 systems here @ school would draw about $4 of elec a day, not something I'd want to pay for. Fixed rates FTW!
Yea fixed rates is the best way to go.. hehehe
I hope to meet my goal of 30 crunchers by the end of the week.
That would be sweet, I think I have 30-32 at this point. 25 @ school, the laptop, the i7, and then a few @ NC State, I don't remember how many
Wow nice! those 2180's are nice little crunchers. I had a few.. One just died and I think all i have left are a couple 2160's... I'm recount to confirm what I have crunching.. I've been busy and really haven't done a good job of keeping up with my rigs.. I'll do better..lol
They are pretty good...I'd estimate right at 550 PPD per system
The C2Ds in the Mac lab should do ~650 PPD per system, the guy that let me get the PentDCs going isn't in charge of them, so I'll have to persuade someone else, but now I have 'connections'
Without ION, Mindweaver has now taken the cherry pie. Good job pie eaters
Congratulations all...although I intend to have cherry again tomorrow
Coming back already? Wasn't it one week the challenge?
Challenge is indeed one week, but it just feels so much better crunching here. Maybe I'll pop back over to XS before the end of the challenge, maybe not, but at least for now, I'm going to be contributing my points to TPU again
I truly appreciate that.
I think this is the first time i hit a piece of pie!
This is just my e-home bro, nothing else I can say
Good job Gary!
If I can get the Mac systems going, that should help nicely in the competition, there are 12 2.26ghz C2Ds...@ 600 PPD each, that's another 7k
Still unsure about how to get BOINC going as a service on X, so I'd probably only get 1 going max tomorrow to make sure it would work
Well, once you get one the rest should come easy don't you think?
I'd like to think so
By default BOINC Manager auto-launches when anyone logs in, which I'd have to disable. In order to do that, I'd need the list of every single user from the IT guy, which might be hard for him to get. I don't know, I'm going to ask him first thing
See if he can help out, make it easier for you.
Yeah, without his help, it would pretty much just be impossible, there are in excess of 500 usernames I'd have to get
Holy crap. Yeah, you'll need his help definitely.
atleast there aren't thousands like there is at my school
but 500 would be a pain in the ass
Everyone in middle school or high school has their own account....so yeah, there are lots. But I'm pretty sure he could just copy/paste them all to a text document
I am sure as well. Just keep us posted man. I receive my 3rd rig on Thursday, I hope to get it running same day. I'm going to do a project log on it, it'll be a short basic one, but I'll probably do a little sleeving here and there just to entertain myself a bit.
The i3, right?
