    Your name shows up on the list just with 0 results. Go into the boinc client's advance view, are there a lot of WUs waiting for upload? what are your network settings in the client?

    I'll be missing some gaming this coming week. However I also need to put off changing up my rig to its new home. I've been piecing together all the little stuffs I need to make the transition, but it'll have to wait til after the challenge.

    But it's all good, just more to look forward to :roll:

    Those kinds of sharing have never gone well in my experience.

    i see under tasks i'm crunching 8 tasks at a time but they seem to be very long. so i dont think they changed as looking at results i see all 8 in progress but nothing else so that must be why i dont have credit.

    You just started running it? From what I hear, you need it to run for a few days to let the system spool up then your numbers will count up quickly :fear:

    Norton helped me so here is a how to get the report to upload immediately..

    $quoted by Norton%

    Here's the version I prefer:

    http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_7.0.64_windows_x86_64.exe

    and to get results to report immediately you will need to add a cc_config.xml file to your BOINC folder

    Open notepad and type the following:

    <cc_config>
    <options>
    <report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
    </options>
    </cc_config>

    save file as cc_config.xml (file type- All Files)

    Shut down the BOINC Manager and drop the file here:
    * note- ProgramData folder is hidden so you have to make sure you set windows to show all files (folder options> view iirc)
    [​IMG]
    This should get you going pretty good- feel free to PM any questions or post them on the Team or challenge threads- we all help each other ;)

    Just a quick question, hyper threading better to have on for crunching?

    And how would a 8350 AMD 8 core do against IB?

    just curious and not starting a flame war , it's just a question:fear:

    already was writing that before you posted lol. gotta love google and whats crazy is i have been writing so many bat files and conf files and now conf.xml's i think boinc may make me quit mining as i dont want to config anymore. especially because those bitcoin erupters are a pain in the sweet mary of joseph to get configged. lol can i just donate crpto's besides i see them posted on the page but the points stats were updated 7 hours ago whereas i started crunching 5 hours ago so i'm probably just waiting on the next update period.

    HT = good

    8350 vs Core, depends on the application. On integer math the 8350 do pretty well, on floating point not so good, about 2/3 of a comparable Intel.


    To put it into perspective, I used to crunch 24/7 on a 8350 getting 8K, while my 3770K did >4K. After MCM went in full force my 8350 numbers plummeted to 3.5K while the 3770K rose to >5K (that's why I'm pretty sure MCM runs FPU calcs).

    Just remember that HT doesn't scale linearly. You're still using a quad core CPU, just running it close to 100% efficacy.

    FF, you'll realize TPU's WCG team is an advanced, more mature group of people who don't get into flame wars.

    Here, we talk kindly about all sorts of hardware and the eventual good that can come of it. ;)

    Borderlands 2 isn't very CPU intensive. I play it all the time on my 2600k system, while the system is crunching. It's barely noticeable that your crunching while playing Borderlands 2. So you can GAME ON and CRUNCH ON at the same time. :rockout:

    Hold on.. If I stick a blue portal on the wall here, ship you the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, then you stick an orange portal on the wall there... Hey TRWOV! What's your mailing address? :p

    Here is your FreeDC page: http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=user&proj=bwcg&name=895444

    It shows BOINC credits, not WCG points so don't fret if they don't match (1 BOINC = 7 WCG). WCG updates 3 times a day, validation time depends on the WU quorum. The same WU is sent to 3 or more people so you'll get credit when everyone sends their results.

    yea i just looked it up i'm monitoring the page along with my mining page i have 1,564 points so far and that was updated 6 hours ago. hope the 2 softwares dont conflict but i'm not using cpu miner so i just got to make sure boinc doesn't send any gpu work or it may interfere with bfgminer. speaking of which i should start folding again. does anybody know how to disable that boinc screensaver. its really buggy

    Right click on desktop > Personalize > Screen saver. Set it to none.
