Time left is the amount of time until it finishes at the current rate, right? Not time until it's due?

Yeah till it finishes. However I find that sometimes that's not very accurate.

OK that's good. I don't think software is very good at predicting how long something will take. :laugh:

It can be accurate at times but i wouldn't worry. Once you have a few days under your belt check and see if your PPD is what it should be. If it is then don't worry about the rest :)

I had read on the WCG forum, that essentially each project has different levels of optimization for different CPU's. Each time a WU is completed, there is a Duration Correction Factor that is updated, to try and more accurately predict the following WU's completion time. You can see that under the Projects tab, and clicking on the Properties button.

If you were running a single project on a machine, that number would stay close to 1, and your completion times quite accurate. But since WCG projects are quite differently optimized, that number changes frequently to try and be accurate.

Basically, poor old Boinc is trying to be accurate with completion times, should pat it in the back for it's effort :laugh:

Now that you bring that up I believe it is true. I also think I read that somewhere. Good point.

If you wouldn't mind setting up TeamViewer and then PM'ing me the link, I'll see what I can do for you. It's totally secure, Buck Nasty used it to help someone set up F@H
Hmmm, at little more investigation into the "missing core" thing let me to the conclusion that my reading abillity is not good. My 4 CPUs are NOT dual core but single cores with HT so I have as many jobs running as possible. A little side note to people that want to try out crunching on old Xeon servers - dont. You can't OC and the points that you can gain is low-low (800 BONIC per day is my estimate @ 2.7 GHz for 8 cores). But if you are looking for a good heater they are great :D

I let it run till the heating season ends and thats it.

No offense, I have a pair of those sticks. They don't clock that great you may want to look into something else. Best I could obtain with them was 1625 10-10-10-27

OK good. I just don't want to see you disappointed. How much are Gskill Tridents where you are at? They seem the most worthwhile. Should get you crunching hardcore. IIRC, I swear I saw 2500mhz 10-10-10-25 on a pair.
