Yep, our badges are linked to Free-DC stats, if that site is down, our badges are gone.
Congratulations & thanks for the effort, ALL!
the final score 70667000 looks neat!
Happy to help when i can, Enjoying crunching them numbers.
My daily output is still all over the place its going from like 42k - 100k- 80k i have no idea whats going on iv done everything i can think of is this jump in numbers normal?
I think part of it is the servers that do the reporting. I had my home server crunching for a few days but had to stop due to lockups, etc. I noticed it was still putting out points for a few days even though the system had the software completely uninstalled.
It's amazing! Over 4x what we were pulling a month ago!
Wicked job! That's incredible! How does it feel to be #1?
I never thought a gaming rig would do this well on distributed computing.
In FAH, the 48-core rigs are still king, but in many of the BOINC projects, nothing beats high-powered GPUs. While they're harder to use, their computational power is phenomenal.
Nearly fifteen million points eek and we edged out Marist College for an awesome #5 in the world by points today!
Each and every one of you are amazing, thank you for contributing to this historic accomplishment!
We're also off to a wicked start in the second week of the HCC competition!
Awesome job Team!
OK so check this out:
I'm going through my email and I see the one from 10-31 (right after I joined) saying I'm about 12 days away from my bronze badge. It says click here to see more and I do, then find this:
I say 'wait, that's not a bronze badge, and is it mine?' I go back to my email from 11-1 (yes, a day later) and it says I'm about 5 days away from bronze. So I go back to WCG and see the page thinks I've been running for 121 days! when I've only been running for eight. WOW - the power of GPU WU's is amazing...
The way that it works is that each CPU thread can earn up to a day of runtime a day (usually it's a tad less due to other load on the computer). Regardless of whether it's a Pentium 3 or a Core i7, one thread still can get one day. So you've been running something like 15 threads--giving you 121 days of runtime in 8 days.
Similarly, I have 30+ years of runtime, although I've been crunching for about three years (and about a year and a half of that I was inactive). Having a bunch of cores/threads gives you a ton of runtime (and thus badges). You'll be at ruby soon!
Huge congrats to the most amazing team ever! Hmmm, catching up to the vaio's next? Think so!
This is a truley amazing increase in PPD for our team in a short time period
Thanks to all the new (and old) members!!!
...and all that in just a month.
The numbers have increased dramatically. I am so impressed and so proud to be part of such an awesome team. We are a social species and our strength is in uniting our efforts. Together we can find the cures of the present and work towards a better future for all. I have a tremendous amount of respect for each and every one of you! Keep it up!
Same here. There's been something special in us since the beginning. Surely proving itself now.
What we've done is amazing--from 3.5k WUs/day to ~60k, and from ~3m PPD to nearly 15m. At this rate, everyone needs to watch out!
Another awesome day above fourteen million points! I'm optimistic that we can hit fifteen million some time this week!
#6 in the world by points today!
Another great day in the HCC competition!
Great job Team!!!
Awesome numbers guys!!
I wish I had my three, humble rigs, running in this! Oh well, it is truly great what has happened here in the last month! TechPowerUp will be running WCG, Soon!! They will bow to our commands, and send all their Beta's to us only!
Well, maybe not but, that would be nice. Anyways, take care and keep crunching!!
Another awesome day indeed!
Still doing a wicked job in the HCC competition!
Good work everyone
Over twelve million once again!
Solidly #1 in the HCC competition still!
