    How do I get that little WCG Cruncher badge in the corner that some people have?

    Found some ways to cut down on other electricity use and bring up my daily Folding and WCG run time. Hopefully I can keep it up :D

    First earn 100k BOINC points by installing, setting up, and running WCG (this may take a little time). Then go to UserCP, click edit options, and scroll down to where it says 'WCG Username' and enter the name you are using on WCG.

    Awesome! :toast:

    Hopefully bog or F150 can help you out. I have no experience so can't help there. :(

    Must share. :D

    Do you have any rigs running ubuntu? I don't use putty, I connect by ssh in the terminal off of a rig already running ubuntu. Sorry, can't help much.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well guy's I think Ubuntu is getting the nod for the next cruncher. Now Should I run 32 bit or 64 bit? I am leaning towards 64 bit.

    Also I switch 2 of the other machine over to WCG. They didn't do well so far on there first day. One has done the blistering total of 2 packs and the other (laptop) hasn't finshed any since last night. It fell asleep on the job and I didn't catch it until about 30 mins ago. I gave it a good scolding and set it so it won't fall asleep again.

    As I side note I have 12 or so results pending validation. Is this unusual? If they validate I will be over the 3k mark..

    I'd say 64 bit. As for pending validations, I think its normal, I still have some old work pending validation. Why it sometimes takes awhile is something I cannot answer.

    Pendings are normal, I got 24 pages of them now and I bet F150 got 40 pages or more, the WU's are just waiting for youre wingman to finish.

    Yeah, you'll find yourself having a few pages of "pending validation" WU's. Completely normal.

    Free-DC is down and the badges need to read you're points from Free-DC.

    :slap: :laugh: shit happens. As long as you have a buffer to work with no big deal as far as WGC concerns but it must have been painfull to do without internet for that long. I have a backup USB 3G for when that happens to me.

    Haha! Painful it was. It's what happens when roommates don't pay their part of the bill for 4 months. I just did overtime at work.....had nothing better to do so why not make money, right?:laugh:
