    I'm a little confused about the 25k points thing. My WCG member page says 90k points, and my boinc manager says 13k work done. Which stat is taken into account for the contest?

    Boinc points = WCG points divided by 7

    With your setup, pulling the 25k points required is really no trouble--I set the bar low so that people with just a dual core or similar would have a chance to win prizes.

    How much time does it take to validate results? I have about 150 results pending validation, some 4 days old, is that normal?

    You must wait until the other PCs computing the same unit turn in their results. Validation is done by comparing several results.

    Thanks very much for your help as well as everyone else! :toast:

    Quick Reminder- the prize contest requirements are:

    We encourage everyone to keep going once you've reached 25,000 BOINC points*
    *Hint- There may be special giveaways weekly during the challenge and you will need to have turned in points on the day the giveaways occur ;)

    Yes that is normal and work sent just before a weekend tend to stay untouched by the workplace rigs during weekends. It will normalize to a half a day of work after a week or so if you have a 3-4 day buffer. I had +400 pages at one time but is now down to 150 pages which is about 8 hours of run time. Validation can take up to 14 days if your "wingman" fail to complete it in the allocated 7 days and the next one that gets the job does fail too. The tend to re-send the timeout WU to trusted rigs but 7-10 days is not unusual. This is for HCC1. Other WU has different rules.

    I'll keep running daily throughout the contest and after, although not as much as I am right now due to electricity being 30 cents/kWh where I live. I want to get to 25k as soon as possible (I blame my OCD).

    1 WU ETA for Turion 64 x2 -> 8:00:00 :laugh:

    Good thing this is turned on all work hours. Should be able to turn in 1 result a day or ~400 WCG points.


    mystikl, I also like to see rising numbers :roll:

    I'm also using one or two cores on my work notebook (i5 2430m) I'm running it while at work, just to cut down on my home's electricity bill.

    My Atom CPU take anywhere from 12 to 50 hours for a single WU. Yes, it does four at once, but even so :p
    All for a rockin' ~300 PPD :)
    Fortunately, the power consumption of laptops is minor--my i7-3612QM laptop draws about 60w at the wall :toast:

    Just saw that OfficeDepot is having a software sale. You might look forward to a Darksiders 2 steam code to the prizes pool if I find a copy tonight. :rockout:

    I've got 54 WU finished and ready to report. I'm currently on the 6.10.58 version and I'd like to update to the 7.0.44 version. Will I loose the points for those if I update now? Should I wait?

    No, you won't lose your points, they're tied to your account not to the BOINC client.

    Manually update those ready to report wu's prior to the Manager upgrade or uninstalling of the old one- if you haven't it's a possibility that they may be lost.....

    I understand, I blew the breaker when I was running all of my systems, so I had to move some of them around to power them differently.
    May tomorrow be better :toast:
