Thank you, at least we know its a server problem and not something wrong with our rigs
Not only that, but I had internet issues as well. So I have tons!
First time I've managed to get pie all day, amazing!
It's been awhile since your last pie!
Has anyone else gotten any of the Discovering Dengue Drugs -- Together -- Phase 2 WUs? I've gotten a total of 1, which took like 45 hours on the stock-clock Q6600 that I have running, claiming ~600 points.
45 hours? I've not seen a single WU for that project yet, but that's some big WU by the sound of it
Yeh bro, really really long time. Good to be back
im new to this just started and was wandering if this is supposed to happen my cpu jumps from 7% to 100% back and forth
ithink its normal, mine does the same
Pretty normal for when your computer is crunching. Mine does it.
the only thing is i thought i had it set to 60% max
Its normal IF YOU DON'T HAVE CPU USAGE SET TO 100% IT WILL DO THAT. Now with that being said if you don't have it set to 100% it will run in "pluses"
If its on 100% it should look like this
Click on Preferences and you can change the % use for you processor. I've found that 100% works even for my 24/7 machine. I hardly ever see any difference. You'll have to find out what works for you.
Haven't seen one WU that I know of. 45hrs seems loooooooooooong
As Tim stated, if set to 100% it'll look like this
holy mother of all updates
nice update i also had a big update...It seems that for part of the day i can nip at your heals but its always the last 2 updates that you pull ahead
That's a nice update CP!
Alas I contribute the least during the weekends - If I'm at home I use the Q9450 and the E8400 but if I'm at the summer house I take the lappie with me so it's only the Q9450.
During the week I have the Q9400, E4300 and E7500 running but only from 7:30AM till like 5:30PM weekdays. They're the work computers and my dad shuts down the main power plug when we close for fire hazard precautions (our adjacent stores are full of paints, thinners and the like so it's wise of him I guess!)
Yeah, I've been super inconsistent lately since I've been on and off. Right now my AMD rig has been off for hours, keeps wanting to do a CHKDSK but says it can't then the screen goes black and that's it. Waiting on my buddy to bring me HIrens boost CD to see if I can get it going if not I have no clue what's going on. That plus the Easy COnfig file doesn't work on the AMD rig so it's not updating when the WU's are done neither.
Any contribution helps BP, and indeed it is a wise choice to shut down the electricity if the adjacent stores are full of paints and thinners and stuff.
It is a while, it probably would only be ~30 hours on a high-clocked i7, but even that is long (the only time I've had WUs over a day long was when I had FAAH running on a DP 1ghz P3, WUs were frequently 30+ hours)
Just got home.... I still have like 4 or 5 waiting to report, been that way all day. My 250 was down all day also, my numbers today = FAIL!
As long as you have a decent buffer (~3 days), this isn't a problem for WCG. I have major internet issues, so I have a larger buffer, and it then can upload a bunch of WUs at a time if need be, and I can go ~4 days with no internet before I run out of WUs to crunch
Mine has prob enought to last a few days loaded, just need them to report back. Right now I have 5 waiting. The 250 is back up now, psu problems. New one on it now.
Hmm... it shouldn't be long now. Hopefully, everything will be waiting for me when I get home from school tomorrow. I'm starting to get excited in anticipation of the performance increace I'll get in games with this new cpu... 3.5GHz of PII arcitecture sounds awesome compared to 3GHz of crappy PI arcitecture
