    That's not bad, it's like 10x that for me :(

    GL with that, having a server is nice, I have an old Thinkpad that I use for a file/FTP server (personal use only, not accessible outside of the house yet)

    Damn!!!

    That's quite the deal!!

    But sorta power-hungry, that's the same power usage as my i7 for ~50% of the PPD :(

    Still hard to pass up for $50 :laugh:

    Excellent :)

    I think we stand to do very well :toast::toast::toast:

    And I'm going to stay doing only C4CW until the end of the contest---unless I get a Sapphire before then :laugh:

    We moved up six spots, hopefully in a few days we are in the top 3. Do you think we can catch the leader even though we started late?

    I like to think so, but I'm not overly optimistic. Top 2 or 3 should be easily obtainable :)

    P4HT running WCG now :)

    BOINC seems to have underestimated the sheer slowness of it, looks like it's going to be ~6 minutes per % on each thread :eek:

    I'll get up some C2Ds now :toast:

    Doesn't support anything newer than a PentD ;)

    And it's not mine. My P8600 (2.4ghz C2D) does one in just a tad over 2.5 hrs

    Not sure. My goal is eventually, at least half a dozen, but it may just be 2 or 3 for today. And then more next week. I'd like to gradually phase in to make sure that BOINC/WCG isn't adversely impacting people ;)

    C2D @ work as turned in it's first pair of results :toast:

    Seems like it's a lot slower than my laptop though :( Might be because they actually use it :ohwell:

    It'll be interesting to see how it does over the weekend :)
