    Yeah, but I didn't realize the whole points difference.... :shadedshu

    Someone send me money to build more crunchers, or give me one of theirs. ;):laugh:

    guess i could crunch for you for a few weeks if you'd like me too, but its not gonna be at 100% 24/7

    more like 90% 12-16 hours a day, how about that?

    Naw dude, don't worry about it. I'll catch up. I'm hopefully going to have a second desktop built here in not too long crunching as much as this rig.

    There are two different points systems, it's as confusing as hell but here's the summary:
    The WCG website uses it's own points, each point there is worth 1/7 of a point as reported by BOINCStats, Free-DC, or the BOINC manager. These are known as WCG points. The points that BOINC reports are known as BOINC points. The milestones here are BOINC milestones

    Building a set up for my better half, it's going to be pretty obvious it belongs to a girl, but it'll be a good rig.

    Yeah... there's two types of points for this... there's the WCG points, points that are credited by the WCG project itself, and BOINC points, points that are credited by the people who run BOINC, the software that host the WCG projects, and many others too. We go by BOINC points here; WCG points can be converted (roughly) into BOINC points by dividing by 7.

    Going to be building it in this case... She's an artist, and I'm pretty sure she has some artwork planned for this little case. Plus, it'll almost always be crunching at 100% like my current rig.

    This could take some time, and some of my wise wit, but I may be able to convince my aunt to run WCG on her machine (sporting my old 7750BE, heh). I am very worried about her electrical system. Before I got to it, she had a computer, monitor (CRT tube type), speakers, printer, cable modem, tv, tv cable box, and dvd player all running off a light extension cord (a power tap with the ground prong pulled off was employed) like the type seen below:

    [​IMG]

    Since I was charged with building a new computer, I noticed this mess and was horrified, and I had her get a better extension cord. Now she has a heavy duty extension cord (unfortunately, some raggidy old dirty chewed up thing that was used outside, and has the ground pin missing) going to the power tap (again, ground pin missing...) supporting the pc, monitor (now a lcd), speakers, printer, and tv. The other extension cord is powering the modem, router (got one to set up a network) and the dvd player.

    My plan is to have her get a decent extension cord like the one she has now, but, new, not chewed up and with the ground pin, and get a surge protector with >=9 outlets. After that's all done, which will probably take a while, I'll try to talk to her into running WCG again.

    She's going thru a pink stage right now with her art... I don't know what else to say. She wanted a pink case, and I looked around for one and she liked that one.

    I kinda like it to be honest. But I'm going to have to paint the inside of it.

    EEK! I run my laptop on an extension cord like that, but I run my desktop on a heavy-duty cord.

    @ The Alien. Great job breaking out of the 101, but top Cannuk is 3xploit at number 20.
    He/She is putting up good numbers.
