Norton, did something happen? You seem to be short ~25k points
Nope- just some changeover/pending isues and I brought the 3rd rig (1045T) to the remote site so it's on the 2-3 day rotation with the other two.
They get reported tomorrow am (ahead of the storm)
That should give you a great boost then
Time for Pie!....
Are you in our Top 20?
Or Almost There?
Spoiler: Positions 21 thru 30 Today
A Hot Coffey Break Today!!!
Congrats to All of our Crunchers!!! -
Great job everyone...Daimus in particular--84k is phenomenal!
Nice work guys
Damn, this fighting with windows 8 has dropped my numbers by half. I believe I will just waist the 20$ and got back windows 7 for now
Brandon there is a cetain client that works with win8. Not all of them do. Norton knows exactally which one it is. I think the newest from Boinc site is the one.
Its not really the client I am battling, its the connection issues and now the reactivation issues. This storm knocking down my internet at home does not help as well. Once I get the bugs straightened out on windows 8 I hope to be back up there.
Oh. I though you where having client issues. Win 8 is making you reactivate? Hmmm
Yea, it activated the first time I installed but I formatted due to connectivity issues and now it is saying it could not activate :/
Isn't that Win8 an upgrade? If so, install it twice and activate after the second install. Win7 Upgrade made me do that too (Upgrade OS needs something to upgrade from (even on a fresh install).... doesn't care if it upgrades from itself though )
and Mad is correct- you need the BOINC version of the Manager (WCG version isn't compatible w/Win8) BOINC version has issues with gpu crunching though
and I left a message on the Win8 thread for wireless adapters- a Netgear WNA3100 works with my Win8 (preview build 8400) but a Netgear WNA1100 doesn't (BSOD's and other headaches)
Gotta go- CT governor just closed the State roads effective at Noon and I have at least an hour ride to get home (man it's nasty out here today )
Time For Pie!
And your Coffey Break for today
Thanks for doing the Pie MaD!
Well done everyone!
Time For Pie!
And "My" Coffey Break for today
Da_vid, is everything OK? I notice you've dropped a lot
Well done all! It's great to see some new faces in the Pie tonight!
yes all goes well,I had a power outage and I install a fresh copy of window 7 x64 on my Q9550.
Glad to hear that things are sorted out! I was afraid that something had happened--your drop in PPD seemed odd given all of the new rigs you were planning
Tomorrow i'll start crunching with new Rigs
The two new FX-8s?
Those should be great--and we can have a competition--see if my i7-920 or your FX-8 is faster
Yep and i'm going to pickup my new army of GPU
Well, then I probably stand no chance. I'm thinking of picking up a HD7850 for the i7-920, but I can really only afford one GPU at this point
But I'm still very glad to hear it!
How much is a 7850 ? . 250$+ 40 $ of taxes here in canada
If I get a 1GB model (there are a few) I can have one for just over $160.
I don't know where you buy your stuff but you pay the big price!
You can get a HD 7850 1GB for 165$ here
You can also get a 2GB version here and here!
