    Sweet job! Overcoming Bankinter would be very challenging--it's basically a formidable one-user team :eek:
    But good job--#2 in the country is nothing to scoff at! I'd never come close to being #2 in the United States!

    In all reality you are the #1 single cruncher. Bankister is a crap load of PC's and people probably :eek:

    Great work Dan, you really set an example!

    So this is my Atom system.....[​IMG]
    I literally had no idea that it was possible for GFAM WUs to take this long--by comparison they finish in about 4.5-5 hours on my i7 laptop.

    Like 32 hours. Admittedly, I'm not sure how much of it is actual CPU time vs elapsed time--it was running Windows Updates for some of that time. But still--that's a phenomenally long time.

    Well, this is an 8w CPU running 4 WUs at once. I'm sure it would be much faster with HT off. I know that even my C2D Celerons are far, far faster than this :p

    Hi guys

    I won't be here too much in the next couple of weeks, but I'll be crunching.

    My little bro died yesterday and it is very hard to take. His mom still in vacation and we don't know how to announce it.

    I'll keep my rig crunching but will be away.

    See ya later guys

    Sorry to hear about your loss:( That is a difficult situation to be in when you have to tell a mother and she is not there. No easy way to do it.

    It really is sad to see such stories recently around here. I guess it's part of being so close to a bunch of nerds behind a PC you know. Really feels like family here.
