    That is why a (low priority) second project come in handy sometimes: no PC without work!

    It looks like WCG is getting closer to resolving this issue but it could take a few days for the servers to clear up the backlog that was created because of it.

    Latest update here:
    https://secure.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewpostinthread?post=454096

    I checked my rigs and one of the remote ones that I was concerned about uploaded a big pile of wu's as well as picking up a decent batch of new ones.

    *note- the MCM project may still be on hold so consider adding other projects to your profile if you are doing MCM only on your rigs ;)

    Thanks for the update. I may need to switch my profile a bit then, maybe venture out a tad more.

    After I got my last MCM badge I switched back to all projects. Although I am strongly in favor of cancer research, I found work was more consistent by allowing other projects besides MCM.

    I added CEP2 but only 1 WU came through on the i3, so now not rigs have FA@H. I'll keep an eye out for when MCM comes back strong so I can move back over to that. But for now, they're back to crunching. :)

    WCG will only give you one CEP2 wu at a time unless you change your profile (setting at WCG site) to accept more of them.... 4 is a decent figure for an i3 system ;)

    I am currently only getting one at a time, by choice. They heat up my lappytop when they decide to run two at a time. Means I can't surf without my trusty prop stick, that I hate to carry around in my backpack. My courier bag handles it fine and it is a few weeks before I start riding the bike, again. Until then, one at a time, thanks!

    I get the bone-head award for the day: I installed the Windows 8.1 Update 1 and paused BOINC before the reboot, then forgot to unpause if for the next 6 hours :banghead:

    Hey team, does mac ram work for PC's or does apple do something silly with their ram. Craigslist has a really good deal.

    I've purchased memory pulled out of an Apple laptop for my crappylappy. I think they do some fancy trickery where their EFI BIOS checks some hardware for ye olde Stamp-of-Apple-Approval. I don't think normal PCs care.

    well, the order is going to arrive either this evening or tomorrow morning. So, pics when it arrives. BTW, I am not exactly sure what kind of server I bought, but IIRC it's some 2x8c Xeon rack, HP brand.

    Update: will arrive tomorrow noon.
    Edit: I mean, server blade. Dang. I keep mixing the two words.

    Been lurking and went back through the last 10 pages. I finally got my I7 back up due to some issues with lock ups (GPU related) but its back at it. My I3-2100 was paused for some reason and now thats back up and running.

    Scratch that! Already arrived! Thanks to my friend. He got yelled at by his wife for going out of his way to drop it off to me today in the evening. :D
    Also, it turns out it's not 2x8c. It's 2x4c Xeons with HyperThreading. So it's 2x4 cores + 2x4 HT-"cores"

    Well since I had posted earlier, my i7 at work went down. One of the HDD's has been clicking off and on but not much. today it was doing it every ten minutes then I thought I would reboot it and then it would not come back up. I grabbed 3 400GB drives from our lab and I am reinstalling... everything :(

    rigs are down for a few days/ a week or 2, need to do some cleaning and cable management along with buying about 6-8 120mm fans to prepare for the warmer weather in all 3 of my rigs :)

    TRIED to upgrade the gfx in the Ubuntu rig, but alas the G33 mobo didnt play nice with the r7 250 i purchased. Couldnt get it to boot and BIOS/splash screen was all garbled. Im chalking it up to a PCI-E 1.0 slot not wanting to work with a 3.0 card. Took it back and ended up impulse buying a Seagate 1TB for $62 + tax, Woot for saving monies :p
