    Alright, she fizzled out and most passed north of the city. Towns west of me like Sarnia and Port Huron got hit hard. There was also a Tornado northwest of Ann Arbor.

    Can never be too careful. Last summer lightning struck close by and all power went out Lighning/thunder/power out all in the same instant. It was loud! and when it came back on my computer wouldn't power up for around 2 minutes....my heart started racing....then finally she whirled into action. However it took my Z-5500's about ten minutes. I was so scared the unit was fried.

    Chrunchin' away again :toast:

    Good that it missed you ;)

    You should consider a UPS if you have a lot of storms in your area- the UPS will isolate your rig(s) and equipment from the grid and supply you with clean power. Worst that will happen is that you fry the UPS or blow its internal fuse.... will also supply enough power to give you some time for proper shut downs if you're home when the power fails.

    I know what you mean. I went on vacation last summer and left one machine running. We had a storm while we where gone. Took out the mobo. You could actually see the burn marks on the board.

    Yes, I've been meaning to do that before this summer. I just didn't know I would need it in March! We hit 70 F (20 C) today That's May weather for cryin' out loud! we usually still have snow on the ground this time of year!!!

    I'll go pick one up tomorrow. I have a funny feeling this summer will be a hot one for storm activity.

    What a shame. At least I had the satisfaction of ruining my own Asus M3A79-T. If Lighning took it out I'd be so pissed!

    I'll probably end up picking one up within the next couple of months- wifey is watching the UPS truck too much lately and I'm getting this :wtf: from her. Still going to build the new cruncher but need to back off a little and build up some more funds :rolleyes:

    Hmm, I am running dual GTX465's and have not had a single unit being processed with the video card. Have to wonder if they are not compatible with the projects.

    I've been getting them one after the for at least the last hour- beta results on its 2nd page on my WCG account :) The beta doesn't seem to like the 5870 in the other machine but it really likes the 6870. Why?... I have no idea :eek:

    *** EDIT @Stinger-are all of your CPU's doing work? If not try to up the %CPU usage to use all of your cores. I'm using 0.39CPU + 1 GPU on these... maybe it defaults to a full core and no GPU if one is available???? ***

    Looks like I'm getting the beta's on all rigs with a good mix of green and red cards, got 560, 570 and 5870, 5970 and 6970 in them. if I put in moore GPU's should I run them in sli/cfx when crunching?

    I have two betas currently running, and the GPU doesn't appear to be being used at all :(

    I got all of the most recent ones yesterday afternoon continuously for almost 2 hrs. It's really hit or miss but apparently you get a bunch if it likes your GPU.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Has anyone noticed a slow down or even points being taken away? I was at 57k Thursday night. Which normally I would have broke the 60k mark but Friday morning. I check on my stats Friday and down to 55k. :eek: And it seems to have been a up hill battle from there. Going up and down on points. :confused: I finally broke 60 this morning. I should be breaking 70k by now.

    Also it's not that the scores are pending. I actually seen where the points where awarded then taken away.

    I had a power flicker here at the house and restarted the 6 core :( All others are still fine.

    Where are you checking your points? The Projects page on your BOINC Manager and the WCG website have the most accurate #'s. I've seen FreeDC #'s move around sometimes but the information should be coming from your WCG account.

    @ The_Mad_ShOt also look at you're messages. If any points have been taken away it will show up in red.

    I am checking it in the project manager within the client. No red messages but my message history only goes back to 11pm last night. It seems to be doing alright today.
