    he started crunching for me? I need to take a look at my stats more often. I knew he was going to i didn't know he already started :laugh:


    The i7 is going to be down till later this week while i wait for some barbs for my new rad. :ohwell:

    EDIT:I would love to get the funds to replace my X2 and board with a AII X4 and another board(my board doesn't support the 45nm quads)

    Yea bro check your stat's hehehe x 980 crunching away! :rockout:

    I've got an itch to buy a new PII x4 or x6 when they are ready. I also want to replace my G/f's p9500 with a PII 940. :toast:

    If I end up buying an X6, I'll give you a decent deal on my X4 955

    Well if anyone is looking to pick up a Phenom and board or Athlon and a board, I've got all bases covered in my FS thread :D

    On another note, I should have my i7 860 back up in the next day or two as electrical repairs are about done, cost so far $950. Could have been a lot worse so I'm not too mad/sad.

    So, anybody else see that we are done with rice. Now it's time for them to actually utilize the data.

    Kind of cool:

    "Nutritious Rice for the World Research Project Completion

    Member News

    World Community Grid is pleased to announce that as a result of the generous contribution of computing power from our members, the Nutritious Rice for the World project finished on April 6, 2010.

    The project was launched on May 12, 2008. While it was active, World Community Grid members processed over 29 million results which required nearly 26,000 years of computing power. This work would have taken about 200 years of time using the computing resources available to the researchers at the University of Washington. Using World Community Grid, this research was completed in less than two years.

    With this project's completion, our members have significantly contributed to the research that is being done to ultimately develop rice strains that will make a difference in fighting malnutrition and feeding the world’s people.

    Now comes the difficult part of sifting through the data to find the best models. The researchers need to find the best models from the almost 7 billion models generated. This should take approximately 3-6 months using their fastest methods. After identifying the most accurate models, they will use the information to figure out what functions these proteins perform in the rice organism. This involves comparing the structure and sequence to known proteins which is also a time consuming process. The plant genomes are not nearly as well studied as the human and mammalian genomes which makes the process all the more difficult.

    You may read about these plans and get the latest update from The Nutritious Rice for the world scientists in this forum thread or on their website.

    The Nutritious Rice for the World research staff at the University of Washington, USA wish to express their sincere gratitude to you for contributing your computer power to this project."

    Right now six. Im trying to get everything "condensed" a little bit. So my number of rigs is going down, but my output is up. My final number will be five AMD X4's. When I get my shop finished possibly a couple more. But thats a good year or so down the road.
    Three are up and running 'balls to the wall' right now, one is waiting for parts. Still working the deal for the stuff I need for number five. :toast:

    That's a heck of an effort you are putting into crunching bro, keep up the good work :toast:

    Good luck with your shop.

    Yep, same here. Excellent work everyone who contributed to RICE! Let's hope they can make something useful out of all of that work now :)
    That's pretty impressive, that should be good for ~10-12k (estimating 2-2.5k for each X4 @ 3.x ghz)

    Everything that could've happened it seems. The meter socket, where the electric meter plugs into the breaker box was burned, the main breaker was burnt and damaged, the busbars were burned and 90% of the breakers were burned or damaged. The entire breaker box was replaced.

    blk, it absolutely is :) I was able to get your package out yesterday morning. I'd PM you the tracking but I can't find the receipt. You'll probably get the package tomorrow before I find it.

    Im getting ready to change jobs here soon. The economy has really done a number on my company. Its costing me out of my pocket to stay running. So for the near future Im going to work for someone else, let them pay the bills for awhile. The pay is much less than Im used to, but thats ok, it comes with full medical and dental benny's. So the shop is on hold for a few months at least.

    Right now my average is right around 1700 to 2400 per machine. Once I get that forth one finished it should jump up some. Im averaging 3500 to 6500 ppd right now.

    I get about 2000 points out of my X4 955 each day, so those numbers are very reasonable. What clocks are you running at?

    That sounds like a reasonable strategy as long as it's for the better :toast:

    3.925GHz averages 2300
    3.125GHz averages 1785
    4.068GHz averages 2340
    Some days it good numbers. Not so good on other days. I dont think the servers update as much on the weekends, thats when my numbers really take a dive sometimes.

    Very true. I bet those servers are pounded pretty hard on a daily basis. I would need a break too. :laugh:
