    WCG isn't actually associated with the UofC@Berkeley. It's more associated with IBM.

    You can crunch any project that is most significant to you. I crunch one until I get the top badge in it, and then switch over to a new one. All of them are valuable for different reasons :toast:

    I crunch them all until they start acting up. Then they get the boot.:nutkick:

    im not sure they read my application thoroughly I found a link to their admin CP on their site and mentioned and linked them to it on my application, then i told them how to fix it. IDK if thats why I have the interview or if I have the interview because they skimmed over my app.

    You just may have gotten yourself a new job man. I think it is because you told them how to fix it.

    Checked on the Ubuntu machine today, suffered from at error at 1:30AM this morning and has only been crunching on one core since. Even stranger was that it was only running on one core. Decided to reboot it and see if I could get it back running and it just hangs on the Ubuntu loading screen. Think it did not like running off the MicroSD card very well.

    Long short- its going to be down until I get it a HDD.

    Not running an optical drive :eek: Its a barebones machine. Going to check CL to see if I can find a used 32GB SSD or something- unless someone knows more about Ubuntu 12.04 and would rec against using an SSD. Im not sure how TRIM would work, etc.

    Do you have a 4GB+ flash drive? I tried to use a SDHC card and got erratic results, but a 4GB flash drive worked fine for weeks :toast:

    Can you use SSDs in 12.04 without issues. I tried Googling whether or not 12.04 has TRIM support, no definitive answer that I saw.

    Very interesting, I will definitely look into picking that drive up if I can find anything locally.

    Maybe it is a SD related issue then. I will go ahead and try it on a 4GB flash drive and see what happens.

    Inspired by Norton, I've decided to create a spreadsheet of my crunchers:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Also inspired by Norton I also did a sheet of my rigs and included the one in progress. If funds hit right I will be adding a fx 8150 to the fleet and it will replace the 970be in "Chucky". I will then use the 970 in the new rig. Also I have some gpu changes coming within the next week or so. Upgrades are great. Ocing my rigs is next with fall here.

    MAybe, I put in to MSI 785G to RMA, I dont know if they will or not but its worth a try.

    If it comes back good I will be on the look for AM3 cpu and DDR2
