Installing the program now.
Welcome Bro! Be sure to check out this thread before you start crunching: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=106593
It has all the essentials for you to start! And if you have any further questions, just feel free to ask anyone from our team!
Way to go neorief, good job
welcome to the team radical Ed, you'll hav some fun here, I promise you that
Thanks for the welcome guys.
neorief- Thanks for the link, that'll be helpful.
I'm thinking about turning one of my box project computers that I've been messing with into a cruncher for a while, but for the moment only my main rig is running the program.... Hopefully that'll change soon!
Welcome ED and happy crunching
Thanks so much for joining. Check out the link in my signature for a program that I wrote that gives you a PPD estimate for your computer...it's not extremely accurate, but should be within ~10-15% of what you would get if you are running 24/7
Ion's essentials thread rocks my socks
Thanks, I do my best to keep it updated
You are doing a great job ION
Wasn't sure if this was the right thread, but in our team thread is a good place anyhow. I need some ideas! Want to make an avatar or sig with the WCG logo, but finding it hard to think outside of the box. I have all sorts of crazy interests, so any idea however unrelated might just give me the "click" my photoshop skillz is waiting for. Thanks for reading.
Doing this gives a sense of fulfillment.... there's a happiness to be found in knowing one is helping a good cause, you know...
Todays' pc's won't even feel any cpu usage.
After 2 days I'm seeing the results got through:
Now just to check if I got everything right, I installed WCG on 3 computers but at the bottom of above screenie it says I got it on 2 (See where it says 'Device Installations) ....
On one pc at work when I installed it it appeared as the same BOINC manager but without the WCG skin (unavailable even through the options). I thought that's not important, it's just the skin and I log in as Black Panther and all that so the work is going through I guess? But I wanted it to go through team TPU if anything - perhaps someone might pinpoint where I went wrong?
It'll take a while for all of the WUs to validate, you should start getting much better PPD soon. And running WCG really does make one feel good about ones efforts. The 3rd system should show up soon, it just takes WCG a while to update things. All of your points should still be going to TPU, as long as your account is set up with TPU (it is), all computers attached to that account will contribute their points to TPUs total
ION hit it right on the spot!!!
Well, I let my system crunch for a decent part of the night, sadly, I had to shut down to update some stuff, but I'm pretty happy for my first night of crunching.
Looks good Edward! Click on the button to switch to Advanced View, I've found that it crunches ever so slightly faster like that
great feeling heh?
@ ION, really it does???
Will do Ion.
CP- Yes, it's nice to give a little something back.
Welcome to the team!
It's a great feeling! WARNING: THIS CAN GET ADDICTING
very much indeed CP
If it wasn't because of priorities and limitations I'll have like ten crunchers now
I just need to install an OS on my box comp from the box thread and I'll have it crunching. Being as otherwise it'll just sit there and be useless, might as well use it right?
Oh crap, I'm making up reasons to make more crunchers..... I think I'm hooked!
DHL came with my 4*2*2 cores today. Plus 35 kg including power supplies and disks. For now I´m 2 IEC C19 power cords short plus a non-USB keyboard. To be continued....
You might joke about it but you ARE hooked
Well, it's an okay thing to be hooked on. So that's all that matters.
Edit- Is it bad that I'm building a dream cruncher of sorts on newegg right now?
