    Thanks, I'll check that out :toast:
    PPD per day? :shadedshu
    Points per day per day? Points (per day)^2 :roll:

    But that would be awesome :D

    And I will likely have another couple K PPD coming next week (Macs)...IIRC each has a ~2ghz Dual-Core Intel

    Rampage or not you have to luv the outcome. Crunch on and Crunch Harder!
    That sound dirty, sorry BP.

    Bro, are you going to put every computer in your state to crunch? :roll:


    Fine with me though :p

    Hah, I'd love to :p

    For now thought, it's just going to be about half a dozen at work and 2 dozen at school. Maybe closer to 3doz @ school @ some point.

    The X31 is back in operation, I had to nuke my Ubuntu install (still don't know what happened) and reinstall. Oh and I decided I might as well upgrade it to a gigabyte of memory while I was messing with it. When it's doing the C4CW and FAAH WUs, it ran dangerously close (~480mb) to the 512 it had...this should fix it :)


    Oh, and the best thing, normally w/ my i7 and the rigs @ work, I have about 3 or 4 pages of WUs pending validation. Now? 11 :p
    [​IMG]

    Already have 5 pages and counting of valids from the school farm:
    [​IMG]
    Next update should be amazing :D

    It's a shame IMO that CEP2 is Linux-only ATM, the school really has the bandwidth to be amazing at it, even with 24 systems (at the rate these things go through WUs, no way our home connection could handle CEP2)....but school:

    Thanks, I'm really looking forward to this :D

    They're pulling down WUs at an astonishing rate....I didn't expect 48 threads to go through so much work :eek:

    ...and your numbers are going to get better when the new rigs get fully up to speed :rockout: number 1 is definitely possible. :respect:

    If/when I get the Macs up, I think that No1 could certainly be possible w/ the i7 & 2 other quads (maybe even without the quads).

    Without them, I think it could still happen on occasion, the farm is ~13k PPD, and I've been managing ~5-6k normally. So that's ~18k, which is ever so slightly above what Mindweaver does :D

    It'll probably be ~10 days before I know, by the time that everything is going full force, I'm probably going to be w/ XS for the week, so I'll have to wait until I get back to see :ohwell:

    I finally received the email for the contest. As much as Dave (movieman) has been a remarkable person and I would love to help him out I was once treated ridiculously stupid when approaching them for a suggestion. Therefore XS is not getting my help. Sorry, I know we received help from the XS refugees, but one person spoiled it for the rest.

    WCG Supercomputer run part 2 - November 1-8,2010

    Hello,
    As most of you know back in May our WCG team made a one week push to show the computational power that resides
    with the members of XtremeSystems.
    It was one heck of a week.
    We maxxed out that week at app 18,000,000 WCG points per day from a previous average of app 7,000,000PPD
    A lot of good people came to help and many stayed.
    For that you have my thanks more than I can say in words.
    We're now averaging app 12,000,000 PPD and with the cooler weather now here we want to give it another shot.
    The plan is to bring everyone we can onto the WCG team for the week of November 1-8.
    We'd like to see the team break at least 30 million PPD during that time.
    Can it be done? The answer is yes and easily if you help.

    Think on this a minute:
    There are over 135,000 registered members on XS.
    If every one of those 135,000 members brought just ONE old P4-3000 or AMD X2 to the team for that week at 2500PPD each we'd do 337,500,000 PPD and that my friends is more than any Supercomputer that exists in the world can do by a factor of three.
    Now factor in that most of you have machines that can easily out do those old P4's and AMD X2's we have the opportunity here to make one heck of a statement while doing good research into Cancer,Muscular Dystropy,AIDS and other diseases.
    Since the way WCG works is based on a quorum system( WU sent to at least 2 people to make sure the science is correct) the smart move is to get the app running at least 4-7 days in advance of the November 1 date.

    We have an excellent How-To on setting up WCG on your machine(s) located in the XS WCG section here:
    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=230613
    plus any questions you might have can be answered by myself or any of the other team members in that section.
    Thanks for reading and we look forward to having you with us.
    Movieman

    Trying to get their WCG PPD as high as possible for a week :)
    Stupid-awesome deal! :respect:

    There's a very real chance next week I'll be trading my Thinkpad X31 (PentM) for a Macbook (specs unknown), a friend of mine @ school hates Macs and would rather have a PC. Even though it's 7 years old :rolleyes:

    Whatever, the Mac should crunch much faster (plan on running XP on it)

    Yep...it seems like they're planning on doing it twice a year :toast:

    And Nov is much better than May IMO

    The idea sounds familiar. Maybe someone suggested to do something similar here as well?

    Good luck to them.

    I'd give you ~2 months, I doubt I'll be gaining on you at much more than 10k a day :laugh:

    I don't think the help that you offered to help me get to 2mil this year is going to be needed @ this rate ;)

    I'd like to hit a few more stones, but then, sure, I don't see why I couldn't help you w/ my i7 for a bit :toast:

    The PentDualCores are all going to stay w/ my name, it's too much trouble to go around and change 24 systems :p

    EDIT: Got another PentDC @ work going. Total thread count here is 10 now :)
