    Here is a lost of all of the entrants so far:

    While this is accurate to the best of my knowledge, PM me if you believe you spot an error. Please!
    I recorded a "Didn't exist" for the starting points if a username didn't exist or if I had reason to believe that the results I found under the name weren't yours (IE account registered in 2006, no updates since then).

    Points were pulled from here, except substituting your username in place of Aperture_Science_Innovators. If you get a "Didn't exist" you must contact me by Sunday with your WCG username or you will be dropped. Thanks!

    Erasure, you've been added, but my screenshot doesn't show your name (not enough space). However, you got a "Didn't exist" so I need a PM from you ASAP :)

    It's possible that I typed some of them wrong--as I said, I'm not perfect. I've added those four to my spreadsheet :toast:

    Had to disable overdrive on the 6950. I'm just throwing up errors :cry:

    [​IMG]

    I was wondering why it only got 433 points and just saw that. 6 hours wasted :shadedshu


    BTW, I don't seem to be getting more GPU WUs for the 6950. Could that be related?

    I think if you have too many error out, the server stops sending you work for 24 hours or something.

    mmm... you know, now that I think of it it seems that the only valid results were the ones when I ran at 1 WU. I was sure that I followed KieX instructions:

    Check your event log in the BOINC Manager- it may provide a clue to what is causing the error.

    You have Windows 8 on that rig- 8 causes issues sometimes. What graphics driver version are you using?

    13.2beta5

    EDIT: Maybe multiple WUs don't work all that well in W8? I'll set 1 WU again and see what happens. I just hope they don't blacklist my rig or something.

    Maybe they only fixed the Windows 8 issue for GCN products in 13.2. Two or more WUs with any older drivers would cause the driver to crash and lock up the work units on 7xxx cards at least.

    IIRC, at 0.00 UTC so it has started 8 hours ago when I write this.

    How long does it usually take to validate results? I have a ton of the "Help Cure Cancer" ones as I guess that utilizes the GPU most.

    ^ Welcome and thanks.. let us know in case you need help in setting up BOINC.. if you have a compatible GPU you can use it to crunch too



    validation of results can almost instantaneous, sometimes can take few mins to maybe a couple of days too..

    Could be a couple minutes to a couple days to update to 'Valid' on the WCG website. Its like waiting for a pot of water to boil- don't bother staring at it, its doing it's thing :laugh:

    Where did you get the "starting points" from? Is it "Average result per Calendar day"?

    Also, I keep having "Computation error" whenever a GPU-based task is downloaded and starts running and I'd like to fix that problem. My BOINC version is the latest .44 beta and my catalyst drivers are 13.2beta3, although I have tried 12.11beta11 and 13.1 in the past month (still had this error). I set up the WU configuration with the automatic tool provided on this website and made sure it matched the values of the example given there (to be sure i didnt make something wrong). Finally, what actually happens is that when the task is downloaded, its status goes to "running on 1CPU+0.25GPU" (initially I had 1CPU+0.125GPU) and half a second later I get "computation error". This even happens when I already have 8 tasks running on CPU. Any ideas?
