This Wednesday, my facility is being inspected by the fire department, so I plan on unplugging my older machines (with their respective cables) and storing them in another room temporarily. Don't really want to have to explain why we have 12 PCs running in a room, so I'll put some away for a day and leave up 2 or 3 of my decent, non-ghetto looking machines to appear "somewhat" normal. Since they were like "da fuq" early this year when I literally only had 2 towers running and stacked on each other, I'd hate to see their reaction to 12 of them.
That makes a lot of sense, getting shut down by the fire department would be unfortunate
Do you keep your rigs at work?
Explaining to the higher ups they got shut down because of your systems wouldn't go over very good. .
Probably a good idea. Fire inspectors can be a pain sometimes.
Tell them you're a computer pack rat and it might save them from excessive smoke inhalation causing cancer!
Ok now the WCG website is fine but now I can't upload or report any work units :shadedshu
then that guy had no idea what he was talking about. Thanks for clearing that up

12-18 hrs that puts a return to service out to late this afternoon!
They are going to get hit with lots of data when their servers are back up and running!!!
My work buffers are all set to go from 1 to 5 days depending on the rig so I'm set for a little while....
You farsighted, sir!
As for me, a typical buffer is only 2 days for all rigs. I hope it will be enough.
NEVER Play a HD Video while WCG running on a P4!
on the good side
GOT my PC case for the i5! ~ Cooler Master Elite 311
Two days works well, that way if something happens to the PC you don't lose a ton of work, but it's enough to get over most bumps in the road.
I personally run a buffer of 3 days on dedicated WCG systems and 2 days on everything else
I have my work buffer set for 7-10 days. That way the work is there and can be done over a long period of time if something really bad happens.
I have my work buffer set to four days. Just to be a bit more on the safe side.
Nice, got anything else for the build so far?
How do you set a "buffer"?
Options=>client settings=>net settings=>download&buffer
I really need to up my buffers on my rigs with all the outages here lately. Rigs are probably sitting idle right now saying wtf.
Is that Russian or Ukrainian?
I'd strongly encourage it
No, only PC case
Look at my work buffer
That's Russian. Very little difference with the Ukrainian, Belarusian, Bulgarian or Serbian. You know the Cyrillic alphabet?
Your computer still has tasks to work?
I do not. I recognize the Cyrillic alphabet when I see it, and I figured that it was the likely to be Russian or Ukrainian because those are the two largest languages that use Cyrillic. The university I'm at offers a Russian class, which I may take at some point in the future (I'm studying history, and I find Russian and German history to be the most interesting), but I'm taking required engineering classes now.
EDIT: Ahhh power cut going off, after uploading the WU
Given that one thread is going idle, I'd suggest that you set a larger work buffer
