Discussion in 'World Community Grid (WCG)' started by bogmali, May 14, 2009.
Right now it looks like there are no milestones for 1/11, but I think I'm going to try to post here every day anyway. This way, if I miss someone and I have posted to say there are no milestones, they'll know I'm full of shit and can pm me to issue a correction. It also lets people know that we're on the case.
edit - also, if I DON'T post here on any given day, they will know to be like 'WTF' dude.
bit late but thanks got the i7 crunching away
marlow.durbin passes 1,000
1,000 on his first day, not bad
That little rig is going to churn out some nice points.
Oh definitely, especially since he doesn't seem to believe in turning computers off
I like that.
stinger608 passes 40,000
devonharris passes 20,000
hms1193 passes 200
That's pretty much my philosophy as well
Might be time to help Devon out a bit more....
It says 3010 Points generated here.
WCG reports stats 4 times a day. The next one I think will be at 3AM, maybe 2am, I can never remember. When they're reported, Free-dc (and Boinc-stats) will grab them and update their database.
Also, points aren't awarded until a wu result has been validated and sometimes that can take several days. That's not usually though. I'd say that at least half the time the results will be validated almost immediately.
Log in to wcg and go to my grid, then my results. They are reported there in real time.
Sort by return time rather than sent or due times and the completed wu's should appear first. You can also filter by host (cpu), project, status and something else I think.
Crap, with two systems crunching, I would have figured that I should have passed 40,000 awhile back!
Oh well, that is fixing to change here very, very soon
Damulta passes 350,000
Giggla passes 150,000
toast2004 passes 750,000
garyinhere passes 750,000
spy14 passes 3,000
hms1193 passes 500
Very nice, two new members 3/4 of their way to their first million!
And 5 more members coming closer by the day.
Great Work by Everyone but my stats are still messed up..
points match. Are you looking at your position?
Those numbers are identical???
The "MileStones" say that hms1193 passes 500.. Shouldn't it be "hms1193 passes 6000"??
WCG Points != BOINC Points
No, no, no. But that's an understandable mistake. It's a long story but for various reasons, 1 boinc point = 7 WCG points.
I know, it seems stupid, but there is a historical reason for it. WCG used to run other software that did pts calculations differently. This was maybe 4 or 5 years ago. For a while, they ran both the United Devices client and BOINC but eventually switched to BOINC only. At that point they had to reconcile the 2 systems and this conversion factor is what they came up with.
Oh! Thanks for clearing it up.
For a second i thought i was so awesome but now i iz sad.
Anyways, Back to Crunching.
Oh, you are awesome
You should be at 20k BOINC within a week or so with that setup if you run 24/7...just wait, the best things take time
Congratulations to everyone! I'm closing in on my first 100k very quickly now that I have my parents' new pc crunching in the home. You might see my numbers slow down just a hair, I've decided that I can't punt the addiction of WoW quite yet. Just succumbed and bought Cataclysm tonight.
