    Originally WCG used a client from United Devices. Later they migrated to BOINC. They figured 7 to 1 was a reasonably fair means of converting from UD points to BOINC points.

    I agree
    Sorry brandonwh64 but I don't think you could call guns toys, I'm not American so I don't understand this fascination for guns.

    Now back on topic, anyone else got a truckload of errors on the 10. and only on "GO Fight Against Malaria" project?
    Like this, three pages of them.:wtf:

    Yup. Got 14 or so myself. Though it appears to have been an issue with WU's:

    Goods news guys, Lauren and I are doing quite a bit better money wise. I've been doing some computer repair work on the side, and she's got a job lined up it looks like.(Thus my new purchases.) We're hoping to move from where we are at now in about two months or so. We'll see.

    Unknown at this point. We just completed some batch of BETA WU's but anyone's guess what the actual new projects will be at this stage.

    Your i7 should be able to do just over 3K Boinc or 21K WCG point per day if it's crunching 24/7.

    But WCG is all about whatever you can give towards research. So a good average PPD is whatever you can afford to keep giving consistently :toast:

    Go to applications, then ubuntu software center, and search for boinc manager. If I remember correctly, it downloads and installs itself- not 100 % sure though. After that, boinc manager will show up in applications-system tools. Setup after that is just like boinc manager in windows.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Does Bonic run as efficient under Linux as it does under windows? Why I am asking is I am debating what os to run on the new cruncher.

    I would think it would be the same or better, but I never tried both on the same rig to compare them. I run ubuntu because it's free, but it can also be a pain in the ass too.

    I already have one system running Ubuntu 11.04 so I am used to it. And like you said it's free. I wasn't really wanting to buy another copy of windows.

    I got an invitation to HP cloud and was thinking to use it folding but since they reduced the available RAM to 20 MB it didn't make any sense. I then made 10 two core "servers" and got the first started up running WCG. The first four CEP2 resulted in errors before they even started. The hcmd2 now have a predicted 160 hours left (keep growing) and the dsfl vary between 2 and 4 hours and has during that for the past 3 hours. Not great. I have one problem and that is that I can't detach the PuTTy window (I use XP, don't know if it matters) so I can't start up the next 9 "servers". Any input Bogmali, F150?

    Edit: My 160 hour WU ended with an effective CPU time of 2.79 hour. Still havn't sorted out how to detach my PuTTy window.
