    Good work t_ski! :toast:

    HFCC has gone to intermittent status, so I'm not sure how much progress you'll be able to make there. But you're doing a sweet job in HCC :)

    Once HCC GPU ends I should be able to devote 20 cores to the other projects as it takes at least 2 cores to drive a 7870 efficiently. Right now only 8 of my cores are running CPU WUs.

    Butterflies are rare and beautiful - even the bronze ones.

    Edit: Even the BLUE ones. ;)

    Almost there, I have got plenty HCC WUs in my buffer (plus a few in my validation queue) so I will make it. The GPU has run almost non-stop for like 2.5 days though, which will end soon (limiting GPU crunching to nights, I think).

    You can get butterflies in your stomach. Means you are either nervous or excited about something.

    In my case, excited about the bronze badge for the Clean energy Project which has a blue butterfly...

    Thanks for an explanation!

    But, it doesn't have a butterfly - it has a two plant leaves made from solar cells.
    The previous phase has 1 solar cell leaf, so I suppose that represents the phase number.

    If you wish to increase the chance on getting a badge for The Clean Energy Project before WUs for that run out (which will eventually happen), you can increase the number of WUs that can be in your buffer to a higher value than the default of 1 (in your WCG profile). Note: better only do that if your ISP is not capping your internet usage, because of the down-/upload size of those.

    A point of warning: if you run too many of them at once, it seems to cause BOINC to mess up and error everything process. Only seems to happen if you're running more than 10 or so at once, but still a point of caution.

    Also, for those of you crunching on laptops in particular, the CEP2 WUs are harder on the CPU and hotter than most other ones. Running all CEP2 WUs versus other ones easily makes my Thinkpad run 10C hotter (3612QM) and drain the battery even while plugged in.

    Just FYI. I still run more at once :)

    Yeah, I was planning on that. But first I need to figure out how to do it "locally" - override with a config file or something. For certain reasons, I don't want to use the web interface / device profiles for that.

    No worries on the bandwidth for me - I have an unlimited 100Mbps connection ;)

    I believe that it has to be done with the device profiles to get sent more work at once--otherwise, I'm pretty sure that the WCG schedulers won't give you any more...

    Thanks for all the warnings. BTW, AFAIK it is better for the battery if you take it out if you give your laptop grid power.
