    t_ski and CP, those look great! :toast:
    Chicken Patty, you came so close to that sapphire in C4SW--sorry it didn't work out for you :(

    Wow :respect:
    You're an inspiration to us all! :toast:

    Why do you not run CEP2?

    Thanks Ion! and that's a good question? I'll go back and look at my settings. :toast: I believe I unchecked it awhile back because of errors.

    Do be careful that uploads are huge (20MB)--but I've never had any errors on my rigs. I'm not running it ATM because I'm questing after another badge--but otherwise I'll run it.

    I am running all of them, the size of the CEP2 WUs does not bother me because it is a matter of seconds (I got like 30Mbit upload nationaly, 10-20 Mbit upload to tha eastern coast of N. America).

    I was just throwing that out there ;)
    At home, we have about 1 megabit upload speeds (vs ~10-15 megabits that I can get here at school)--so with a lot of systems it could slow down internet access (or bump into data caps).

    I run CEP2 on one of the remote rigs... takes forever to upload/download wu's due to the weak signal I get from a "scavenged" wi-fi internet connection :shadedshu

    See, this is the case where it would make the most sense not to run it--but to let it run on other systems with a more reliable connection ;)

    The wu has no issues running on the rig (no errors) so the wait time is just an inconvenience.

    FYI- found a thread on the WCG forum that discusses how to load/unload work from a remote machine w/o an internet connection using a USB drive ;)

    Doing it that way looked to be a real pain to do but it is possible, which is something I was unsure of. May consider trying it with the return of warmer weather next year :cool:

    You might want to check out this file from the Harvard scientists, they detail what settings to use to get the most out of their project:

    http://cleanenergy.harvard.edu/documents/Tips_Tricks_CEP2_Custom_Settings.pdf

    Hopefully can resolve your errors :toast:

    Just hit Sapphire in GFAM:

    All of my CPUs are now switched over to DSFL, but it'll take a few days to clear the cache.

    Looking at your projects is very funny--I don't think I've seen any that imbalanced before :p
    It clearly shows what the GPUs can do :toast:

    If they had more project with GPU units it would be more balanced. But then again, I nearly had the ruby by the time the HCC Challenge finished :pimp:

    Thanks :toast:

    I'm going to have to shut down most of my systems in just under a week, but I'll be bringing my i7 laptop and probably one of the i7 desktops home for winter break. Goal is to hit sapphire in DSFL in January and then switch back to all projects :toast:

    I may end up picking up a few more systems to give me some extra cores going (as runtime is the area where I'm faring the weakest), but I can't guarantee anything. It's getting a bit crowded with 15 systems on my half of the dorm room :p

    Do what you have to do, considering you not being at home and having many other things to focus on at the time, you are doing a heck of a job bud! :respect:

    It's not being at home that is what allows me to do this--no way I'd be able to run 1500w+ of computers 24/7 if my parents were covering the electricity bill.

    And thank you--it's a pleasure to do what I'm doing :toast:

    Well true, but I meant it because of school. You are away at school, I know that takes time and focus and yet you manage to pull all this off. Top notch effort dude.

    You got the blue thing in no time. The rest is going to take time with GPUs ;) Congrat with your new bronze I hope that you will stay long enough to make them all blue. :toast:

    It looks like you're making very good progress! :toast:

    Good luck getting more new badges :)

    There unfortunately seem to be shortages for DSFL intermittently, so my sapphire there is going to take a bit longer than expected--but I only need 30 more days of runtime at this point, so it shouldn't be too long.
