    Took one i970 off for a day and just put it back on together with my lappy (with a "load" of 98 % completed jobs). I noticed that we had a reduction in average run time off 3 min from the 7th to the 8th (all time, WGC homepage). I hope we can swing it the other way around in the next 20 days.

    I started planning on the build b4 the 6903 came out, but they'll be a definate plus. F@h became an addiction, which wcg will most likely become too. I keep saying I'll build a new rig, like the Sr-2, and sell a couple of rigs.:rolleyes: That never happens though.

    This is highly addictive, I am just restricted due to space limitation. But I will use it to the max!

    Yea I hear ya CP! That is my biggest issue at the moment is not having any frigging room to set up more than my main system and the wife's for crunching:banghead:
    That is about to change though, as I am in the process of trying to purchase a large 4 bd house with a full "man cave" basement:laugh:

    I already told the wife my intentions for the basement:roll: IE "Man Crunching Cave!" :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Shit, I have my main system crunching with six cores and the wife's dual core at the moment. However I have two dual cores and one 4x4 just sitting:banghead::banghead::banghead: Waiting to crunch! Hell, they even wine at me once in awhile:roll:

    yah man, I can only have two rigs here, that's why I want to build a rig, a very powerful one so I can try to have as much crunching power as I can in one rig. :(


    Guys, I'll be updating tonight after the stats update, I was out of town till just a few hours ago. CRUNCH ON!

    Yeah this challenge doesn't seem for us at the moment. Seems like we lost output after the CC. Hopefully the contest gets started soon and that spark some interest and attract new members.

    Just waiting for a case for my SR-2 Dave, once it's here it will be crunching first before folding.

    Appreciate it Jon, thanks!


    On the other hand, just got the powerstrip that Heath(Hammeron) sent me along with some stuff for the WCG Contest we are planning. Between today and tomorrow I hope to have everything hooked up and running, thats' another two cores for WCG, and finally a card folding! :rockout:

    Score dropped a bit more but remained in the same spot. It's just a bit weird how this contest works, our production has been really stable but we keep dropping.

    Extract from WCG site on how the points/percetnage is calculated:

    Taking a quick look at the other teams, those in the lead have 1-7day/per day runtimes, whilst out team has 1.3yr/per day runtime. Essentially it requires us to do around 2yr worth of runtime per day to challenge at the top. For reference an i7 9XX can do about 5days/per day runtime. :ohwell:

    Nice challenge for WCG though, means they're getting a lot more work done per day.

    Yep, I joined to see how we did, this is not the type of challenge I'd worry about if we didn't win. But it's fun to see how it works. :)
