    Hope you all don't mind if I donate a few days crunching time. :D


    edit: to the person looking for 775 board a few posts back, I have a maximus II formula, a ga x48t dq6, and an xfx 790i, pm to discuss.

    DrPepper Welcome to the team every bit helps we will take whatever you can give us.:toast:

    loonym you are more than welcome. Pull up a chair and relax and have a nice hot coffee. :respect:
    Now, what can we do to convince you to stay for weeks rather than days?;)

    I feel a plan coming on, if we can encourage a few more big hitters over from XS. I can sneak back and grab myself a slice of pie.:laugh:

    Hi Mike nice to see you at TPU. Keep looking in we may need someone good with ubuntu. I have tried it and even managed to get WCG, running on it. Just don't ask me how I just couldn't get a temp monitor to work with it.

    Welcome to the team!

    Just watch out for the temps on that lappy. If it's loaded 100% in task manager, and your temps are too hot, you can set your BOINC profile CPU usage parameter to less than 100%. I used to crunch my lappy at 60%. I ran for a year straight that way, with no problems.

    Thx for joining us. :toast:

    Runs pretty cool at full load actually. On top of that its my work laptop, nothing sensitive on the drive that I'm worried about if it catches fire at night.:laugh: All that stuff stays on the network drives.

    Rightmark cpu clock util will let you lower the vcore on most lappies while still running at stock speed. The result of course is being able to run a few degrees cooler while still maintaining stability. ;)

    This is a great forum. There's a large and very loyal membership base here. All the projects of WCG are very worthy but the cancer research is very personal to a great many people. I don't think there are many people on this earth whose lives haven't been touched by this illness in one form or another, either directly or indirectly. It kills and it doesn't discriminate by nationality, class, age, whether you're a good guy or an asshole, or any other factors. Imo this is the angle the core members of this team will need to utilize to attract others to join. This work can potentially save the lives of our sisters, brothers, children, etc. The immediate goal of top 100 team is readily reachable in a relatively short period of time if the team can build momentum. With just the group that's here crunching now, the top 200 may be reached in a month or so and can you imagine the excitement of the countdown to 100 after that? I've found that crunching can be highly addictive. I started out with one quad last March and it didn't take long to be completely hooked. It's rather competitive in a friendly sort of way and the larger the team, the more competitive it becomes. So really once someone starts for a few days it sells itself. Hell, I remember when CD started in a few months ago. At first he's like, well, maybe I'll just try this a little. Now look at him. He's an animal, completely out of control. I love it :D My point is, there is a solid core group that needs to work to attract other TPU members to the team. Once the goal of having your own sub-forum is reached it should become infinitely easier to do this but for now there is going to need to be some real effort put forth.
