    ..and some of this because there was a time when we were tied for points and output. :p

    Just got a new case as an awesome gift from my awesome little brother! Totally shocked me, what a terrific dude. So soon I'll have some downtime (yet again) while I transfer everything over to the new case. I'll share pics when I get a chance. It's late already and I had some friends over tonight; my wife's friend from Chile was visiting so we were chillin', sipping, playing piano and singing (it's funny to hear us play/sing while tipsy :laugh:), so it's off to bed for me.

    Good to see everyone doing well and t_ski firing up :D Been alittle absent lately due to a lot of things going on, but hopefully I'll be around more, at least more after Thursday when a few things wrap up ;)

    My brother hooked me up with an awesome Corsair 900d! (time to replace the CM Haf 932, or at least move it on to my other pc) Totally awesome gift, totally awesome case; this thing is huge. I knew it would be big, but now I need to rearrange a few things here to accommodate it :laugh: It looks totally awesome though, very well suited for my needs! It was my 10 year anniversary, and he really surprised me with it; bought it after a conversation with me on the phone while I was a little tipsy :oops: ;)

    What a great little brother huh? :D

    I was hoping to amass more CPU years of crunching than I am old before I "get one year older". But it is clear now I won't manage. Would need to crunch ~ 5.5 years worth of CPU time in two days, but that's far from possible for me currently. kekeke! aww well...

    P.S. I recently upgraded most of my network infrastructure into 1gbps. So, I've got things like this now:
    Here, copying stuff over ethernet using NFS. Love the new speed! ( a tenfold increase \o/ )

    Can't beat family. Hope you can easily find a place for it (had trouble placing my SM8). Looking forward to pics of the renovated build :D

    If things go well, as I expect them to since I seem to be getting almost all FA@H lately, I will hit 150,000 on the 20th!! 5 days early.

    The superb performance by the Celeron 1007U is making me think that MCM might do much better with Intel builds. My 8350 part timer is on 11 hours a day (9:00 to 20:00) five days a week and runs 100% of the time (it doesn't suspend work when the PC is in use) on W7 x64, yet the Celeron 1007U runs on W7 x86 and manages to get 45% of the ppd.

    FX8350 - W7x64 - 1740 avg over 11hrs/day = 19.77ppd per hr/core (4.94ppd per Ghz-Hr/core)
    Celeron 1007U - W7x86 - 750 avg over 24/hrs day = 15.625ppd per hr/core (10.41ppd per Ghz-Hr/core) :eek:

    (yes, I have the FX W7 hotfixes installed)

    of course, some work might be lost due to checkpoints but even taking my dedicated 8350 into account the ppd per Ghz-Hr/core goes up to 6.13 (4715ppd over 24hrs/day, 24.55ppd per hr/core)

    I noticed that my lesser performers (Intel laptops) do get low points whereas my old trusted e8400 have a ball. I have no CPU from the dark side to compare against. Did they really favor one brand of CPU this time? :pimp:. I doubt...pity that bonicstats stopped their ppd/CPU stats.

    Edit: There has been some discussion in the WGC forum about MCM WUs getting stopped sometimes not getting any/low points.

    mmm, it could be, although I haven't seen any MCM lock up. I switched to W7 because I was getting <2500ppd on linux :confused: might have something to do with it. Still, if that was the case it should affect all CPUs equally.

    Looking at my WCG profile, MCM seems to give about 115ppd per WU, don't know if that's inline with the rest or not.


    I was kinda theorizing that maybe MCM was heavy on FPU, something that FX CPUs lack in comparison to Intel (FXs basically are 8 integer cores + 4 shared FPU cores) but if that was the case MCM could be made to run on GPU and we haven't heard anything of the sort.

    Found a Pentium II 233MHz laptop at work. I wonder what it'd get for PPD. :p

    Edit: Win 98, last used 2004.

    Last week of college this semester (a few weeks ago), the lab instructor brought in an HP Pavilion 6330 desktop, circa 1998, and I took the motherboard and rebuilt it into a Win98/2000 machine. AMD K6-2 366, 256MB PC100 SDRAM @ 66MHz, and the new SiS 6326 PCI video card are the main features at the moment. It's pretty darn slow (can see the GUI being drawn) but it still works 15 years later with no blown caps and the original PSU that has a 2A 12v rail. :p

    It shouldn't be that slow. Something's not right. Although 256MB is on the lean side.

    Yeah, not too sure what the issue may be. Windows 2000 takes a good couple of minutes to boot on a 60GB Maxtor, and forget about using the internet as it takes at least a minute to load a page. Also, the USB ports don't seem to work in Windows 2000 unless I use the PCI video card, and a NEC USB 2.0 PCI card works for one reboot, then I can BSOD the computer if I unplug and replug my Logitech G400 mouse in. Updated the BIOS but I don't think it made any difference.
