    Punching out about 2,500 PPD on WCG now... ;-p The rest is going towards SETI...

    I have it setup to transfer some projects as needed to the dual core setup downstairs also.

    Sorry if you take this as offensive, but why are you even running SETI? I think that the searching for cures for diseases that WCG does is far more important than any work SETI does. I used to run SETI exclusively, but that was until I discovered WCG. I haven't turned in a WU for SETI since then.

    This rig just processes what it wants at 50/50. The rig downstairs is exclusively WCG units. Im just sharing what I got, gonna add another 12 cores here in the next few months, if the company who is renting my servers storage space approves of it. Those will also be WCG exclusive.... I will also add another 6 cores in May 2010. ;-p

    Hi vaio nice to see you here. :toast: I think it is too soon to introduce TPU to the other DC projects. They are working on Folding@Home and WCG. I think that's enough for now.:)

    Hi :)

    No I wasn't hinting at anything.....is just that I didn't realise they had got into WCG til I saw the team name at WCG forum tonight.

    Been a little "out of the loop" the last year or so.
    Anyway, good luck with your ascent, it's looking good :toast:

    Oh Also Solaris and I have been trying to get my duel Xeon P3 server to run but all the OS' we throw at it are puking at the SCSI drives. Though we are now trying Windows 2000 Server and if this doesn't work Im going to part this fatty and buy a HP blade server or two.

    I can't remember the model off the top of my head but the server is a Compaq Proliant ML530.
    Each core is like 1ghz but it really runs at 866mhz per core.

    So I also OC'd one of my socket A rigs 1.89ghz now from 1.35ghz :toast: Though I kinda have a feeling I might be making breakfast eggs off the case side soon.

    Yeah I did I'm not sure if I like it or not. Also it seemed like they rushed putting it up not everything was working for me.

    Hey guys... I should be adding a laptop to the force tomorrow. It's a Celeron-M 530. It should be enough to push me past 1k ppd (I am hanging at about 950 right now)

    Yep, I saw it yesterday.
    I really like it, I think it's easier to navigate and looks better.
    That new laptop (assuming it's on 24/7) should be good for a couple hundred PPD. :toast:

    Hey guys. This has been bugging me. How the hell do you change your "country flag" in Free-DC?
