    Just checked and I got them in all my crunchers.

    The little CPU that could, the Cely 1007U, delivered 360ppd today :pimp: Heck, I should have waited for the 1037U to be available

    Well I have been crunching at night, with no roommate, seems to be OK. Knock on wood, noone has had the nuts to mess with it or me, so alls good for the time being! Plus my numbers are back up!

    :peace: :lovetpu:

    Yep, I got Beta MCM, too. Probably not enough for my silver though ;)

    I'm getting in love with these 1007U boards. I wonder if it'd be enough to emulate N64 games.

    Testing...

    @ work we have 3 Dell Optiplex 170L's with celeron 2.4 ghz, 1.5ghz ram. They are used all day but after work we just leave them on. Would it be worth Crunching on them? They are free from 6pm to 5am.

    Celeron Ds make very poor crunchers. An Ivy Bridge dual core Celeron will run in circles around those 3 combined. You'd get way better results with the 1007U I mentioned.

    I think I've come accross the reason for the low ppd on my main cruncher: I think my buffer is set too low. Yesterday I found the cruncher idling with no work and the log said that there were no tasks available. In the morning it was running only two WUs.

    My buffer was set at 0.2 days. I increased it to 1 day. Let's see how that works.



    The Cely did 360 today too. The thing is so small that you could pass it as a router or something. *grins mischievously* :D

    Did WCG get their upload servers freed up yet? Tried to dump the work on one of my remote rigs an hour or so ago and couldn't upload or report anything :(

    Well, two of my Phenoms were not working for over a week. I visited my university on numerous occasions during that time, but only managed to reach them yesterday. They are fired up and working again now! :toast:
    As a bonus, I added one more Phenom II to the fleet - it is the zeroth box (its numbered as 000 there, kekeke...) that is used by the teachers. Thus, since yesterday, crunching for team TPU with 156 cores / 160 threads! :peace:

    P.S. it seems one of the Pentiums stopped reporting work since two days ago. Going to pay a visit to the university as soon as possible to see what's up.
    P.P.S. If not for those two Phenoms slacking off, I would have probably taken the cherry a couple of times recently. Grrrr.
    P.P.P.S. A slim chance, but maybe I will manage to add a couple of more boxen by the end of this week.

    woot! The Cely crunched 600 today! And that's on Windows 32bit :eek: I think that on Linux x64 it could get to 1000 on a good day. :clap: I suppose the 1037U would net ~300 ppd more.

    I can't wait for embedded Haswell Celerons to arrive :D Just give the ULV Celerons GT3 graphics and I'll make sure to pick one for my miniITX HTPC. :roll:

    On friday the 13th, there will be a database server maintenance related shut down so make sure you increase the buffers to longer than a day if you do not want to get out of WCG WUs.

    Eh? Odd. I could swear it was yesterday - my boxen refused to report WU's for over half a day with the even log saying the database servers are undergoing maintenance. Hmm...

    That one was unexpected- this one is scheduled and is only expected to last 4hrs iirc. Best thing would be to make sure your buffer isn't too small if you don't want to risk losing work ;)

    No the Wednesday upsets are to be expected. They do some kind of maintenance on that day and have done that for a looong time. This one was just happened to coincide with their disks were full.

    The 12th A8-5500 that was broken when I installed BOINC on those APUs was recently fixed. So I jammed BOINC onto it.
    Therefore, I am now crunching for team TPU with 160 cores / 164 threads :toast:


    P.S I was doing quite some work in the university today. That included moving a rack-mount /w [unused] HP ProLiant DL385 G7 racks.
    Gonna see if in the future I can manage to sneak power & innernets to them and run BOINC there. [​IMG]

    Yeah, with K10 cores (same as Phenom II).

    not sure how to interpret that one.
