    Finally got BOINC working on my Galaxy S4! I don't know how effective it'll be, but every little bit helps :D

    Well, I'm late getting started. Just switched over the 4P Opty 6176 server and have to wait for midnight to switch over the Opty 6180 Server(gotta finish my F@H work:oops:). I will let them load up the buffer's then I'm going "dark" until the challenge starts. I should be able to dump approx 2 days work on the 1st day of the challenge.:rockout:

    Also...just cranked up the i7-870 and Phenom II x4 B93. Working on getting WCG running on the A6-6420K(HTPC).

    My laptop is likely getting how those tires are getting lol.

    At least this is a true test to determine if Toshiba really does have heat issues with their laptops, or at least that used to be their reputation.

    Oh, I almost forgot, @Irony are you partaking in this? Itll be my first. I remember you asked me if I wanted to join up during the last challenge.

    2 of my rigs lost their internet connection- hope I can get it fixed by tomorrow :rolleyes:

    Also, swapped the i3 in my folder rig for an i5 - 2 more cores to the crunching farm :)

    I'm finally like the Hunger Games.... I'm catching fire! :laugh:

    [​IMG]



    Finally got the 4670k spooling up, got the s4 crunching (well, as often as it's plugged in), and my 2 rigs going, so I'm going as well as I will be :D

    There's a slight slight chance of adding another part-time pc, but I am not counting on that at all :(

    So, dude just agreed to Crunch on the rig we got from @theonedub some time ago!! Calling him in the morning, to talk him through it. I hope I can do it on the phone, he's new to computers.:banghead:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am going to crunch like mad through this challenge. After it's over I am going to do some reconfiguring of some of my rigs. The 8350 rig is going to be down for a short time due to drive and os change. The other rigs are going to go down for spring cleaning.

    Sometimes we gotta push our bros/friends. I had to bother my brother to get his rig crunching, not because he didn't want to but because we've just been very busy lately. I was talking him through the setup tonight, and he asked about the dates. I told him it starts tomorrow and it takes a bit to spool up. His response was, "Well, why didn't we start this like 2-3 days ago?" lol, I was like, "I called and texted you Saturday and Sunday about this....." Whatevs, we did what we could. :)


    I'm going like mad for the duration too. Afterward I'm finally going to be trying to mix in some folding on my rigs, along with the crunching. I've just been so busy/out of town/sick/inebriated (;) @Arjai) lately that I haven't had the chance. I think the F@H team thinks I'm full of poop about it :laugh:

    FreeDC shows nothing, as well as the WCG site...

    Not sure what's going on.... Has your rig been crunching 24/7 since starting?

    Was there any completed work that was ready for upload?

    I'd say take a look at your Results Status page on WCG site. Go to the site, go to My Contribution, then click Results Status. Check in there to see what's going on. It'll list your current/completed/pending work.

    Come to think of it: I don't think there will be anything there becuse WCG says no results have been returned at all.. :confused:

    Do you need to finish one piece of work 100% for it to return anything?
