    Quite so. Considerably better :p

    And BOINCStats says I'm 17 in Norway!

    I'll join you in Denmark at some point--I'm having fun hopping around Scandinavia :)

    Well, you're getting 8 days of runtime a day for HCC--which still does contribute towards badges for that. But it just slows down badge acquisition for all of the other projects. IMO it's worth it.


    It could be a few days :ohwell:

    To clarify - when you run a GPU 24 hours for HCC you will receive less then 2-3 hours of CPU time for HCC and take is what count towards badges.

    Just to ask, is it not better to use your gpu as it performs WU's way faster?

    Are badges not for girl guides?

    I'm not being cheeky, just curious as i thought gpu's were better for crunching.

    There are different types of calculations. Perhaps it will be more GPU WU in the future for other projects.

    Boys also like to have stars on the fuselage.:)

    We can hope that there will be more GPU WUs--although the scientists don't have anything else for the HCC project. So I'm not terribly optimistic :ohwell:

    Oh yes, the stars are indeed awesome! :D

    Opponents reacting to the team of TPU (in memes).

    Round 1: holy mother of god
    Round 2: Watch out we got some badass over here
    When the challenge as a whole is over, concluding: One does not simply defeat TPU

    70c isn't too bad--my laptop runs at close to 80C 24/7 and the older i7 does ~70C or so :)

    Provided it's an Intel CPU at least--the AMDs aren't so good with high temps
