    Just got a server in at work, but one of the drives failed (stupid 15k SAS drive). I hope it's not too late. Dell PowerEdge 2950, dual Xeon 5150 2.67GHz, Vmware ESXi host, Ubuntu Server guest.

    I've set it to report immediately and it's running MCM with a 2h 55m estimate per WU. I'm not sure if FAAH will have shorter WU times.

    doing 5 millions in the challenge, that is an hard work xD

    I should put boinc on the 15 server I got at work xD (I don't think people would like that) Plus the 100 PCS (like 10% xD)

    For the Titan drawing:
    - 5 million total by the end of the challenge in crunching or folding not 5 million in the challenge
    - crunching AND folding during the challenge at the Top 20 level in at least one of them
    - we'll create a seperate thread for the Titan drawing and a list of those qualified will be in the OP
    - those on the list will need to opt in if they want to be included
    - etc... balance of terms in the prize post ;)

    6 hrs to go.... keep the hammers down! :D

    I think we all would, or at least most. That is one fine fine prize. I would think it would be the top 20 over the whole challenge, but I do not know. I am certainly opting in.



    I can see that every tpu cruncher who is in the top 20 over the last 7 days has greater than 5 million. These names here are ordered by points accumulated in the last 7 days. So here in an unofficial list of which crunches are probably eligible for the titan.

    If we can beat RIT by 65k points (BOINC) on the final update we can take home the win :) We caught up by about 25k on the last update! :toast:

    Maybe we can catch a little luck and they will idle down as the long holiday weekend approaches :p

    ^^^ This! :toast:


    2 hours to go!!!!

    FYI- If you have access to your rig(s) it may be useful to check to make sure nearly complete work isn't stopped before it's finished by a long duration high priority wu... selected usage of pause/resume may be your friend in this case ;)

    I'm taking a wild stab here, but assuming you're talking about command-line, I *think* it's
    Code:
    boinccmd --network_available
    If you mean via the GUI, then it's considerably simpler. You want this bad boy right here.
    Edit: I lied. It's this.
