    I tried it with no caps too, but that is exactly how my WCG name is.

    Try copying and pasting, make sure there is no additional spaces or anything.

    just go to w1zz he should be able to take care of it for you. If anyone will be able to help it will be him. it maybe a bug with the updated software he put on not that long ago so contacting him maybe best.

    Paulieg is one of the mods in the WCG Sub Forum, he might be able to help as well.

    Black Panther had this issue as well, just started working randomly for her. I noticed that the last update was zero for everyone, maybe it'll show up the next update?

    This is not something I can fix. Just send Wiz a PM, and he'll take care of ya.

    Thanks for clearing that up Paul.


    Ion, I don't have that underscore and I didn't see it in his name neither. Worth a try though.

    ah the problem seems to be that the updater script can only pull the top 100 producers for our team

    W00t! Machete is happy. It's odd that I wasn't included in the top 100 though, I'm #82 on the team. Thanks dude :toast:

    I tried out folding for a while and decided it wasn't for me. The thing I love about crunching is that any computer can do it and contribute, not just ones that run a specific type of video card.

    I had to buy some nvidia's myself to fold, just wanted to contribute to both sides of the TPU team you know.

    When I was using my 4850, I tried f@h, but with the 4 or 5 rigs I had on WCG at the time I didn't want the additional hit to my electricity bill. Now I'm down to 3 rigs with wimpy graphics and I'll probably keep things that way. I'm seriously thinking about making them all 1095T's though - instead of just the one I have now.
