    Well GL :)

    My issue w/ FAH is mostly that my dad suspends internet access for me overnight.....so 7 hrs with no WUs sucks :(

    I think once more people are doing just C4CW, we'll do much better than No 14 :)

    I turned in nearly 100 C4CW WUs today

    You still got another three to go after that :p :toast:

    Try using a older version, sometimes that does the trick for me. Use the oldest version and try that.

    I've discovered how the Clean Water Challenge points are determined.

    I copied the following from the above link the statistics updated as of 9/29/10 23:59:59 (UTC) that shows our team had a score of 851.
    Column 1
    0 Rank Team Name Current Score
    1 14 TechPowerUp! 851


    Below I have two images.
    The first image was taken after CP entered the team into the C4CW challenge at 09/28/10 23:59:59 that shows the team total results returned for C4CW was 17,171.
    The second image was taken at 09/29/10 23:59:59 and it shows that the team total results returned for C4CW after the first day is now 18,022. That's a difference of 851.
    So each team comes in as a new born baby and if we are to win we need to grow up fast.:D

    I'm going to be updating the WCG Team Challenges Thread shortly. This way we can track the results easier. :toast:

    Good find though :rockout:

    Looks like everything is working again. Patience was the key after all. Now to get the second i7 up and running tonight and get them pushing for the Team Challange. Already have gold badge for that project, time to turn it into a ruby red in the process. :D

    Well that is what I would expect :p

    But I think that we're in a position do do well, if after 1 day we can be #14 when everyone else started a week ago, I think we're fine :toast::toast:

    Yep, sounds about right, mine was a dedicated cruncher, at 3.8 GHz did about 5.2-5.5k. But it was nothing but crunching. Never was used.

    Mine is also used for school, gaming, and sometimes it's off. And it has this weird issue where it only uses 7.5 threads :confused:

    But it still is quite nice, 8 C4CW WUs every 2.5hrs :D

    I'll get an SS later, it uses all of 7 threads and about half of the last one. Confirmed with 'top' command and System Monitor (Ubuntu)

    Of course, I happened to get the SS when they were all @ 100%. But you can see from the graph it isn't normally like that
    That's what I'd guess
    Yeah, it's a bit :wtf: and :confused:
    lol, I wish :p

    Did you try running the CPU benchmark feature? That normally sorts out missing cores

    EDIT: ooh.. that gnome looks really nice

    Yep, twice ;)

    And tried dropping it to 7 threads and putting it back to 8, still no luck.
