it may take more effort than just top 100 guys. i spoke to w1zzard today and he's more rooting for F@H as of now. even though we have made quite a progression over the past week or so, WCG still doesnt peak interest around TPU as it should. from what you guys from XS tell me, top 100 is a hell of a challenge and will take a LOT more people to reach that goal. i guess its a goal that we will reach in time.

I've been reading the front page for a couple of years and every once in a while venturing into the forums when I see something interesting in the sidebar.You have a respected name here from what I can gather.I know for a fact that you are a very honest seller/trader.I think you could sell quite a few members on the idea of running WCG.Maybe A couple of $$$ off their purchase if they run WCG for a month.They could even do it under your account.Some folks will get instantly hooked.Screw Prime,OCCT or linpack,Save a child from cancer while stress testing.

You should get out and about once in a while!
It's easier to get other people interested in the projects.Look how the interest at TPU is taking off.Myself will be staying until top 100 if the other old-time members of TPU keep contributing so they can get their recognition and own subforum.Remember in the end it all goes in the same pot.
Hehe....I had the exact same thought at 3 am this morning. So much so, I got up, went over to WCG and created this team here.... :laugh::rockout:

It is representing this new forum here.

I took one quad, moved it over to my new account, "123bob_TR" and started it crunching....

I wasn't going to let the cat out of the bag until my one person, one quad team gets some WUs validated. I've got a bunch pending.....
I'm 123bob on the Tech Reaction forum too. I'm saving my very first post to announce they now have a crunching team on their hands! :laugh:

I agree that the more new, never before crunched, computers we can get, the faster we get some meaningful cures. I'd love to see a world without cancer, and know we have a long way to go.


I also created another account, "123bob_TPU". One quad is on that too. That will show on the DC page as soon as WUs validate.

The rest of the farm I will take home to XS with me. There will be a Gainstown dually in my near future to replace the two quads on assignment. When XS comes back, I'll catch up on what parts this might be. MM helped me on the last one, he's got a handle on this one too.

I'll build up farms in the two new places over time. I have badges to earn you know...:roll:

Crunch On everyone!!

Bob

BTW, Farm-11 is back up and crunching. Blew a HD out of it.

Thats too bad. Maybe we can get him to change his mind. Even a subforum in the folding forum. I was planning on staying and helping to reach the top 100 also, but it sure would help with recruiting to have a wcg section.

I will promote it, and I will offer discounts on items that I sell if people will run WCG. I'm actually embarrassed that I haven't been involved in this before. I'll be spreading the word. I just joined yesterday, but I will be a dedicated member from now on. Such a worthy cause.

Both projects are great projects, just get a motherboard with 3 or 4 PCIE slots throw in some GTS 250s folding and run WCG on the cpus. Problem solved...

Right on! Doesn't matter whether you crunch,fold or some other cause you believe in.
So many computers so many wasted cycles.

Just set up rig number 2. Both rigs currently running projects. I'm going to put together another rig in a week or 2 as a dedicated WCG.

knyuck knyuck kynuck.....now here's the way to have cherry pie. The new team must have validated a couple WUs....

Mind you, don't take this post as recruiting or anything near it. I'm gonna get techreaction folks for the TR WCG team. Build your team here. When I'm here tending my quad, and hanging out with you, I'll be recruiting for this team too.....:toast: I'll build my minifarm here as well.

I really wish to thank all of you for your hospitality. XS looks to be coming up soon. I won't just jump off, I gotta figure out the when on that, but I thought I'd say thanks now.

You folks have a great forum, and the nucleus of a truly good WCG team. Keep at it and never turn those crunchers off. :rockout:

Regards,
Bob
