    How deep does the rabbit hole go?

    I'm pretty sure dcstats uses these links to update its own database. The thing is, WCG doesn't keep track of daily stats as far as I can tell, only totals. This is why it has to run through the whole lot every day and compare previous value to current. Of course it also has an API for generating the pie charts.

    I could totally parse only select information from those XMLs with any application or website but those latter two things are a problem and I'm sure you'd agree they are what is actually most desirable. Getting those latter two is what complicates things. The best I could do without getting someone to host something is a tray application.

    Wait a minute...

    If one can get the list of tasks with status and time, one should be able to figure the daily figures from that.

    Uh, nope. Results can't be viewed without a verification code and that can only be obtained via MyProfile page. It's a dead end without having something running daily and even then it wouldn't be ideal because you don't know the state of the jobs. Maybe dcstats has a means to obtain the task list but without that, I really can't accomplish what you want accomplished.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Okay guys, since the challenge is over I am going to be spooling down 1 of my rigs for a short bit. Selene my fx8350 rig is getting a few new goodies with a os change. She is is finally going to be totally done and the way I envisioned her being. Then I can move onto my next build. She will be back to crunching soon.

    I am spooling the laptop down, too (left on "no new tasks"; has a 2.4 day buffer)
    Spooling down one of the FX-8320 for now, too. As the rising heat is both taking a toll on me and is pushing the CPU to temps that I do not like.

    Will likely idle the cards in Phoenix for some maintenance (keeps shutting off) and potentially keep them off. Also will idle down the home laptop since it's been crunching while sitting on the carpet.

    Has anybody heard from @AlienIsGOD? I haven't seen much of it lately, and I don't think he's been crunching much lately. I hope he's doing alright.

    Thanks @Vinska, glad to hear he's OK, albeit in perhaps less than ideal times. If I get on Steam later today, I'll try to give him a little message to say hello. We need to look after out mates.

    Great to hear from you bud! Sorry things have been tough! Try to come back to crunching when you can, but stick around the team and enjoy some chat with the guys, we won't pressure you :laugh:

    Will be powering down tomorrow completely while an electrician does some work. In the mean time. I will be down some time after that. I need to make some fleet adjustments.

    Yes. A nice new athlon quad core. I also am trying to decide how to downsize. I need to sell some gpu's, many in which folders might be interested in. I may sell my x79 system but I am undecided on that. I love it, I really do. My 4820k gets to 5ghz, runs cool, and has all the cpu performance I could ask for. The 3930k will be sold. I don't have the cooling system to overclock it how I want to. 6 cores are too hot. I will be spreading rigs out too. Some family members about to get free pc's as long as they promise to let me run boinc on their 24/7 and not turn pc off.

    I got a new job, and lots of things are changing in my life at the moment hopefully for the better. I love my x79 system but it is worth a good chunk of change that I might need elsewhere in the coming year. I know I will get the upgrade itch though if I fall back onto my still well performing great 2500k though. Its good but I desire better.

    Essentially I need to align my hobby, crunching, with how my life will be in a year. I have time to plan at least.

    If your guessing what is going on in my life, it is just life. Things about to get hectic between education, my job, and my home life. I may have to move frequently. Things are just going to be so variable. Less time for me and more effort towards education and career. I want to game I want to crunch. I want to do everything. I just don't know what I will have time for.

    Thanks for sharing :)

    I went through a lot of changes myself back in my mid 20's and I still can't believe how much changed between 25 and 30... new job/different career, marriage, house, degree, etc...

    Now I'm just getting older, grumpier, more aches/pains but feel that I made decent decisions way back then ;)

    Also, just ordered a new res, Bitspower res of performancepcs. I hope it gets here quick so I can get this rig reassembled. That place isn't too far from, just up the coast, but it depends on how quickly it get shipped out, which is never all that quickly. So, I'm hoping for delivery by the weekend :rolleyes:
