    A Moment Of Silence (My cruncher died)

    Ok, we all thank the old psu for the betterment of us all. On to a new unit. I propose you get a seasonic titanium unit. They have 12 year warranties and they more than make up for their cost in 24/7 crunchers. I hope you will not find it financially difficult though.

    I tried going to 90% on boinc manager cpu usage and cpu time usage, but there wasn't much difference. Even elevating the desktop (Xorg and cinammon processes) to nice -15 didn't help all that much. It is really weird.

    Hi all. I have been running wcg on windows 10 for ages without anything else becoming unresponsive or slow. WCG processes just back off and give all others priority. But when I install linux (any flavor) on the same distro, everything becomes very slow as soon as wcg starts running. All wcg...

    I guess a threadripper would make for many additional years............... :D! Come on AMD, don't be late now! Not to forget to mention that 1,4 mill years is the whole contribution to WCG from everyone. It is not mine!

    How WCG compute years are calculated

    So, one cpu year is one thread (not core as there is hyperthreading) running at 100% for 1 year! Feels nice, doesn't it? :peace:

    How WCG compute years are calculated

    I see in WCG stats that it has run for an equivalent of 1,445,679 years. What are those years equivalent to? Does anyone know?

    Anyone else having this problem? Units remain in the queue and never get uploaded. I already have a whole bunch of them.
