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
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.
HP cloud? I got 18 cores running now for free.
Hopefully bog or F150 can help you out. I have no experience so can't help there.
Thanks, as of last WCG website update, I'm about 1/2 there. A few more days I imagine!
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.
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.
We need to have some serious talks with our wingmen. They be holding up the process.
Yeah, you'll find yourself having a few pages of "pending validation" WU's. Completely normal.
Well guys, I have 8 Core running full blast and the newest should aleast start finishing projects so my numbers will be higher soon. Also Once My wife picks up her fathers old PC, I will have a case for the extra dual core setup I have and It will be running 100% as well.
That's the spirit man, great job!
Tpu why u no have our crunching badges displayed >_<
Free-DC is down and the badges need to read you're points from Free-DC.
Omg love the quote CP
Hey guys, Internet was down for 2 days, but back up now.
Sorry about that.
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?
It seems like minhund have a similar internet problem, or? What happend puppy?
No Internet problems here only shutting down for maintenance and need one of the SR-2's for LN2 time. I'm also getting strongarmed by someone(no names ) from XS
^^best of luck.
Sure you do.
Glad it's back up. . I had net issues for a long time and it was painful man.
Good luck on that LN2 session.
Got 10 cores at home crunching for the team now, and 4 more at school
I want to throw a special shout out to mjkmike and stinger608! These guys are just super awesome!
