+1 but I'm "old" too
Gwaa, "Windows Desktop Manager has stopped working unexpectedly" killed my fun tonight!
Administering more NB volts now lol
Make sure your temps are in check bro. Good luck.
Cheers, all seems good; 48 max on NB and 56 max on CPU. The Raven 2 helps the temps a lot, everything idles in the 30's.
Given one notch on the NB and it seems fine
I would stop there as far as the CPU is concerned.
I dumped about 100 WUs from the i7, I finally got it to upload. Reinstalled BOINC and all was good
I'm going to talk to the school IT guy tomorrow, if all goes well, I'll be able to start rolling out WCG on the 30 C2Ds in the comp lab. Not all right away OFC, but maybe half a dozen for now. IIRC they're on ~10 hours a day
Holy crap!!!!!!! ION has the school to back him up! 100k PPD?
I don't know yet if he'll let me, he just said it was a possibility
But 30 of those even @ ~300 PPD each would still be a force to be reckoned with
Yea it's just the cold-boot issues I need to sort now, takes 2 boots to get into Windows.
All going to be under team TPU? That'd be nice lol
That would be the plan, under my account w/ TPU
That's 9,000 ppd Kai.
I just added 24 2ghz Pentium Dual Cores
I have some pictures of all 20 that I'll upload when I get home (need cable for my phone).
Lab Admin was extremely supportive of this, said that it was a cool project. He's said I can have 'em run for the next week or two, if things are going poorly after that, then I may have to scale back, but he said that it was cool and that he would support me
Oh, and they're at 100% CPU usage 24/7. The few students using the computers ATM said that it doesn't change the usability at all. ~13.7k PPD!
How will I ever get pie
Nice job Ion
I know right? :shadedshu
That's a good sign though. Means people are stepping it up!
Thank you both
I'm really looking forward to this, within a few days the WUs should be coming in in full force, so I should be able to do in the range of 15-20k PPD (let's assume ~11-12k from the farm, although it can in theory do ~14k, then easily another 4-5k from the other setups I have going)
I forsee no troubles getting pie again as long as I have these going
Sure is a good thing. BTW I know how to get pie but then I will lose my folding pie. Can't have it all
Maybe do bigadv on your i7 sometimes and WCG sometimes?
I think I *may* finally be able to eliminate Mike as a threat....that would be awesome
You definitely shouldn't have an issue getting lie ION
I know what you mean bro, nice to contribute evenly or so to both.
Mike is on a rampage but best of luck fighting him of. I just rolled over
Running -bigadv/SMP now but will run one for WGC (i7-920) and one for the nice bonus points (W3670) starting in a few days. Got my visa for Iran and will be going there soon.
Sorry about the quality, but here are the 24 newest additions:
All Lenovos with 2GHZ PentDualCores running a slimmed-down XP x86. Untouched over the weekends and ~4PM-8AM daily
When they're used, it's just for internet browsing and word processing, so they rarely see over a 15% CPU usage.
I set 'em all up at lunch when very few other people were using them....it's a bit of a pain to set up BOINC on 24 individual computers in 50 minutes :shadedshu
EDIT: All 24 represented in my device manager
I've been told if I can figure out how to do a service install on Macs, I also have access to about a dozen Intel Macs
Nice farm you're getting there. mjmike is on a rampage, but looks like you're going to start your own little one
On my sister's macbook once installed it automatically started at boot up and was hidden away from view (well did have a tray icon). No idea about running it as a service, but at least it will be inconspicous.
These computers spend 16+ hours a day with no one logged in. So I'd really like it to run when people aren't logged in....otherwise, not a lot of point
I figure about 30 systems should be enough to hold off Mike...15k PPD should be pretty easy w/ everything going, potentially a good bit more (especially w/ the Macs)
If I remember correctly it should still run with other people logged in. The only thing is that anyone who isn't the installer will get an error message if they try to run the Manager. But think it still runs. Gonna go look this up.

Oh man, that's awesome. If only I was allowed to bring the 41 Core 2 Duo E8400s in my office online.
That would be this much PPD per day
