One final query, is a box stock computer capable of error?? If so, it also would be liable to produce inaccurate/erroneous result..correct?
Anything and everything is capable of error. It's always the margins that matter (MTBF, if you will). The longer a system can go without error, the better it is for science. When building a super computer, for instance, you buy parts that proven to work at a given spec, you make sure it isn't a bad processor in a separate computer, then plug it in to the server until it goes bad. You do everything possible to make sure errors are kept to a bare minimum. Anything that tends to cause errors is avoided.

What we're talking about here is an error once a month versus an error once a year. That would be a 12:1 ratio. The bigger the ratio, the better it is for science/computing/whatever.


Regardless of whether or not the ratio is big or small, all science should be double checked--if not by the computers that did it in the first place then by someone else through peer review (in which case you get laughed at).

Small contribution, but it is something. Going to set up the other rig to crunch as well.

This, in my opinion is the backbone of distributed computing. There will always be the big hitters that make the mega stats points, but the 1 and 2 box contributors are what makes the projects successful.

Anyone that contributes, at any level of participation deserves, a thanks from the project and the teams that they crunch for.

Seems to me that every little bit helps and some cant afford I7 rigs. Be happy with all that help. Cant make em feel that they arent doing their share because there isnt any share you do what you can and feel good that you are helping. A big THANKS to all that are contributing. This shows the good in the human spirit.

At one place i work they have a computer room with about 30 E2200's. I'll see if i can install it on a few, maybe a different one each week. Just a quick Q, can it be installed as a system process like F@H?

Exactly, that's what a lot of people forget. Contributing what you can, when you can is what it's all about. Being a part of a TEAM and having that camaraderie that goes along with that is what makes a successful team. Demanding more of your teammates in the manner above kinda seems like a :nutkick: to me.

HUH? :confused:

RR contributes to the team, but that's it. He doesn't recruit, or have anything else to do with it.

You two need to iron out your differences offline. No need to have 2 team captains going at it in here, it's just bad juju.

Uhmm... I can't comment on your "experience" with rrr.com, but I have to say it's far from what I've experienced. Anyways, just drop it man.

No problem here...just be nice if your team Capt. didn't spread FUD about our team. Frankly, I'd much rather both teams just focus on their individual efforts instead of what each other are doing.

Bottom line, all the WU's end up in the same place, and that's the most important thing. Good luck to your team.

then keep your team corralled over at that site you all love so much

i was simply motivating my team to do a bit better and proposed a goal then bale said i was giving them a kick in the nuts.

i havent said a damn thing about rrr.com and i'd rather not see anything about it anymore but thats kinda hard now isnt it?
