Join us to crunch/fold and even get a chance to win some cool stuff!!!


Welcome to the TPU's Winter 2018 WCG Challenge!
It's Winter and it's cold... a great time to warm things up for a good cause and turn on some digital heat by crunching on our rigs in a new challenge!

Link to the official Challenge results:
TPU's Winter 2018 WCG Challenge! (2/23-3/1/2017)*

https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/team/challenge/viewTeamChallenge.do?challengeId=8891

We have opened this Challenge to show our continued support of the important work done by the World Community Grid and Folding@Home to help the research effort on cancer and other diseases.


The plan:

Have some friendly competition between WCG Teams as well as within our TPU Teams and hopefully get a few of our fellow TPU'ers to join in. :)



Fellow TPU members and WCG crunchers are invited to join our Team to heat up some silicon for a good cause, hang out, have a little fun, and even get a chance to win some nice prizes*
* some restrictions apply- see prize post below




How to join:
* note- This Challenge is for WCG Team crunching. However, we work closely with the TPU folding Team and we will be sharing some of the prizes offered with active TPU folders- If you have a Radeon 7850/GeForce 660Ti or better gpu and want to try folding then you are welcome to do that. ;)

For crunching....
Follow this link to register and join our Team:
http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/reg/viewRegister.do?teamID=S8TLJ6TFV1

Additional donations are welcome


Requirements/terms to qualify for a prize:
* in order for your name to be drawn- you will need to be an active member of this forum also (we will draw according to forum name so please post if WCG name is different)
- Be an active member of the TPU crunching and/or folding Team prior to 2/10/2018
- Participate* for the duration of the WCG Winter 2018 Challenge
- Earn a minimum of 5000 BOINC points during the challenge
* Daily ppd participation is expected- late comers can be added on a case by case basis
Special Requirements for the Cruncher Combo's
-- Winner will need to state that they will crunch for TPU for a minimum of 6 months with the combo



How Random Winners Will be Drawn (see below):
To ensure everyone gets a fair shake and to minimize any potential conflict of interest while maintaining the highest level of transparency- I have drafted a new way to draw winners. The system uses (3) members and works as follows:
Originally Posted by The System
Member 1: This member creates a list of all qualified participants usernames. This list is sent to Member 2.
Member 2: Using the list of names, Member 2 will assign each entrant a unique number. A list of the usernames with the unique numbers is sent back to Person 1. The list of just the random numbers is sent to Member 3.
Member 3: Member 3 has a list of just numbers. They use Random.Org or whatever random system to select which number wins a given prize. The list of winning numbers and the associated prize is then sent back to Member 1.
Member 1: Using the lists, Member 1 ‘decodes’ the winning numbers into the winning usernames and posts the results.
The lists are sent as Private Messages through the forum. This establishes an electronic record of everything while also preventing alterations of lists after the drawing.
When the winning usernames are posted by Member 1, Member 2 can verify that the number belongs to the correct username and Member 3 verifies that the number was actually pulled as a winner.
The system makes sure that there is no bias or other favoritism at play when winners are drawn. Winners are drawn based on a random number instead of usernames- where a possibility exists to redraw if that person doesn’t like who won, draw a friend, draw themselves, pass on new members, or skip doing a random drawing all together.
My hope is that this will alleviate any concerns about drawings and their legitimacy. If it works smoothly, I would like to see this become the new standard when conducting giveaways that have prizes donated by the community.
If there are any questions about this system, drop me a PM.

Note(s):
- If for some reason you cannot participate at the start of the Challenge you may still qualify for the prizes, PM me to discuss your situation and we'll make those decisions on an individual basis ;)

@Norton Speaking of spare HDD's...I have some old flat cable, ISDN drives around but, no spares of SATA drives. I need to join the Present! My farm of old tech is mostly dead, or too cost prohibitive. One of these days, I am going to hit up my buddy for a ride to PC's for People, and dump three boxes on them. Sadly, The MaDcRuNcHer, in all her blue fan-ed glory, will be one of them. The two i3's I salvaged from work? I can run them both for less than that Athlon 64x2!! Far less, and 6 more threads and at 3GHz.

So, yea, I am liking these HP Slim's. 19.5 Watt, 3GHz 4 threads each. I may just search around for more of them! Cheap and fast! 2 more would be 16 threads for under a 100 watts!

Sorry, I was just thinking out loud, via my keyboard. Fortunately, I seemed to have figured something out! LOL

:lovetpu: I found an E-bay listing for an 8200 ultra slim, from a seller here in MN! Good Price w/HDD and power cord!! I was suprised at how many were out there w/out even a HDD caddy! Just checked the bank balance, pulling the plug on it. Might not get it before the Challenge ends but, since it is almost local, I may get it sooner!! That will make 3 i3 2120's 6c/12t for a combined 60watts! @3.3 GHz.
Power to Power, core to core, I have the equivalent to the 1600 @Norton is putting together. Except my 3 boxes will be a total cost of $114! Of course, 2 were free but, buying all three would be $342. If this seller has any left, next paycheck...I may add another!!

Nice first day numbers! I'll fire up the 6c if I can keep it cool.
I was suprised at how many were out there w/out even a HDD caddy!
I think the companies decommissioning them pull the drives in the fastest way possible and trash them. Data security is more important to them than recovering the cost from the old equipment.
