    The additional electricity cost is minimal (reported at about $6/year), they are correct however in saying that it uses CPU Cycles (Duh).

    no one here with BLACK HAT abilities?
    He will need an illegal professional for this i believe.:laugh:

    preferabily, someone that is able to somehow hide packets/let the IT think there are no ones, like a looped camera (speed 1)

    I had about 12 rigs crunching at my work and if every rig connects to the net to download and upload WU randomly (i.e after finishing WU), there would be sufficient traffic...I agree...but not so much as to bring down two proxy servers. Thts what concerned me....proxy servers were down. Lets see what happens.

    But as of now I have disabled the network activity and the WCG client on a pc connects to the servers through a tunnel client. To do so I must manually open the tunnel. Thus the traffic is limited to one particular time of the day and that too a few MBs.

    Nope, you're totally correct, I even leave WCG running when I'm gaming with no ill effects. F@H is a different story, I have to suspend the GPU client or the FPS suck :eek:

    Do you have 100k BOINC points (as reported by BOINCStats or Free-DC). WCG credits are 7x BOINC points, so you have to have 700K WCG points.

    You are right Dusty, what I meant was that your IT department is correct in that it will use CPU cycles that would not normally be used in your day-to-day computer usage (ie. the idle time) This is, however, completely a non-sequitor answer on their part as anything that you do that is not in the normal course of your daily routine on your computer, will use more CPU cycles. So if you launch a work related application more than usual on a given day, you will be using more CPU cycles!!! OH THE HUMANITY!!!

    That is why I added (Duh) after the comment. Anything you do on the computer uses CPU Cycles.

    So we can play at their game .. ;)

    Think outside the box ... WAY outside the box. :roll:

    ... and remember, if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.
