    Well, I've been having some troubles--last night, all of the outlets on my side of the room went out---I don't know if I blew a breaker, or what. Currently, I have a subset of my farm running off of a power strip stretched to my roommate's side---I have the i7-920, i7-860, and i3-2100 systems all going. I may try and fire up the 2700k or Xeon DP setup later on--we'll see. At the very least, all of the dual core systems are offline until the maintenance crew can figure out what has gone wrong. Oops :eek:

    With everything, I estimate somewhere in the 1800w-2000w range--certainly no more. However, I've been pulling that much for a while, so I'm kinda confused TBH :eek:

    How many amps are you pulling through "your" side of the place? You could be running on a single line with a 20 amp breaker. And you are probably pretty close to the amperage with all the rigs going.

    Assuming 2000W, just under 17 amps. I don't know if the outlets on my side of the room share a breaker with those of the guy on the other side of that wall....
    Either way, once it comes back up, I'm planning to take my longest power strip and plug it in behind my roommate's desk and running it along the windowsill to see if I can't run a few hundred watts (maybe 500-600) of systems that way.

    Ok guys, I am going to bring my newly built cruncher to work so it can replace the one that just sold. I think it will keep me afloat for a while on the top-40 atleast. I need to get my main PC at home to stop BSOD about an hour in crunching.

    I'm glad you were able to get the system sold so quickly. Good luck with the new cruncher :toast:

    Well guys, I had a fun weekend and now I have a new sister-in-law :toast:
    Now back to the grind of work and the normal garbage :(. I was supposed to be back crunching last night but it didn't work out due to crazy scheduling and oh so tired from 3 days of nonstop activity.

    So tonight ill be back crunching, and I'm looking forward to it. :). Glad to see you guys were working hard all weekend, keeping up the fight :toast:

    It's unfortunate to hear about troubles that we sometimes have (Ion, brandon) but its great to see that we keep pushing forward, and continue to be joined, Bo$$ :respect:

    My PPD is staying here for the foreseeable future, the Crunching bug has bitten me good ;)

    I'm doing colatz too, but the TPU team won't approve me for some reason, who is managing that? :confused:

    Not sure what "colatz" is...
    Can you give us some more info.

    Oh sorry! Colatz Conjecture, it's a Boinc Project i'm running only on the GPU's to maximize output :) I can see an 'official' team there, just nobody is using it :laugh:

    Did not know about the (planned??) outage. 3 rigs sitting idle, so I powered them down. how long is it expected to last?

    Got all the way into work today and realized I left my cruncher by my door LOL!!! I even put it there so I wouldn't forget it. So stressful lately.

    The Collatz Conjecture is interesting. I used to crunch for it back when I started on BOINC and there were no humanitarian projects I could use my GPUs on. I had 2 HD 4870's at the time and only Collatz and Milkyway@Home had GPU work units I could use. Eventually, I stopped doing Collatz because I realized that the heat generated and power consumed weren't really worth trying to find a counter-example to the Collatz Conjecture. Essentially, it's just a statement that for any given natural number (whole, positive), following the rules of the conjecture, you will get 1. If the number you chose is even, you divide by two. If it's odd, you multiply by 3 and add 1. So.

    67 (Odd)
    202 (67x3 + 1) (Even)
    101 (202/2) (Odd)
    304 (101x3 +1) (Even)
    152 (304/2) (Even)
    76 (152/2) (Even)
    38 (76/2) (Even)
    19 (37/2) (Odd)
    58 (19x3 + 1) (Even)
    29 (58/2) (Odd)
    88 (29x3 +1) (Even)
    44 (88/2) (Even)
    22 (44/2) (Even)
    11 (22/2) (Odd)
    34 (3x11 + 1) (Even)
    17 (34/2) (Odd)
    52 (17x3 + 1) (Even)
    26 (52/2) (Even)
    13 (26/2) (Odd)
    40 (13x3 +1) (Even)
    20 (40/2) (Even)
    10 (20/2) (Even)
    5 (10/2) (Odd)
    16 (5x3 +1) (Even)
    8 (16/2) (Even)
    4 (8/2) (Even)
    2 (4/2) (Even)
    1 (2/2) (End)

    I'm not sure proving that wrong will be quite as significant as what may come of the work going toward HCC.

    I'm been running WCG for 3 years (and few days) now and that's how long it took before I found this http://www.efmer.eu/boinc/boinc_tasks/download32_64.html. Get it if you like numbers. It a perfect tool to nit-pick in all the data if you are running multiple GPU tasks. It shows CPU time in a table so you don't need to open each and every one completed in BOINC manager (default official program that you are using now).

    Some good news and some bad news: the power issue I had was only because I threw the breaker--so the repair man was able to fix it in thirty seconds. However, it does mean that, somehow, I managed to throw a 20 amp breaker, which puts some limits on my ability to expand. I'm going to see about running five or six amps of computers on my roommate's circuit to see if that will help any.

    I've also run out of GPU work on two of my systems (HD7950 and HD7770). The HD7930 and GTX460 are still going strong--and I'll be getting the GTX470s going again tonight when I have time to re-wire the room.

    My Xeon system has also run out of work, so it's been shutdown.

    I just made an inventory on my three mayor rigs:
    2x7970 - 1.25 days left of GPU work
    2x7770 - 4 days left
    1x7950 - 2 days left

    4275 WUs ready to either upload or report from these three rigs.

    Ion: what went wrong with your buffer? Did you crash just before they increase the buffer?
