No--I think he meant w/ the original requirements for the stars
He must specify and clear up this confusion lul
Well he said "and implementing the stars with the original requirements.", which means to me that he wants to stop the arguing and go with what CP originally suggested--and that's fine by me
I like that five stars are hard to get gives people like me something to shot for.
As do I, but I like that it would be obtainable to more people. A single i7 and Fermi GPU is enough to get a 'Crazy Folder' badge, but it would take a minimum of a pair of hex-core i7s or a trio of quad-core ones to get the 5 stars
I brought it down to 12k, still maybe not much difference but you want the five stars, then you know what to do.
Think about this, crazy folder is 25k, the equivalent of that in the WCG stars thingy we got going on, that's like one or two stars if you think about it, you get no where near pie with 25k. So I think 12k for the fifth star is good enough. Like I said, if you really want it, you gotta give your utmost dedication and that's what we need from our members!
12k is fine by me, as is 15k, whatever you guys want
I haven't had any contact whatsoever from any of the systems at school for 5 hours now, which makes me think that either they've lost net access, someone's turned them off, or the power's out. I'm hoping for the 1st one, the 2nd seems unlikely, because who goes in to school at 5 AM? 3rd is also possible, but given the network issues they've had there, I'd say it's more likely to be 1.
Up until 5 hours ago, they were all sucking down new WUs and returning completed ones at the rate of about 2 dozen an hour, now it's just my personal machines and the ones at NCSU
Keep us posted bro.
That I certainly will.....it's now been 8 hours and none of them have pulled new work or returned any work
Really no idea what's happening here....any ideas?
My thought is the Cleaning Crew turned them off to save some money for the school.
That's possible, although they have a fixed power bill.
And why would someone come in at like 5AM on a Sunday?
Hence my suspicion that they've just lost power and/or net access
Most Cleaning Crews work at that hour, Helps with security. I scared the shit out of the crew at my old job by going in at 3:30 instead of 5AM.
I think you will still get PIE friend.
If it's not what mike says then it's gotta be either power or net loss. I'm leaning more towards power or net loss.
Looks like I won't afford public transport this month and I'll need to cycle to work instead.. but that's ok because it's the fault of this little purchase :
EDIT: @Velvet Wafer, the akasa thing is to fix my 4870X2 hope to have it sorted out soon for you.
Pedal away my friend.
Gwaaah just found out how much this murders the electric bill... Will be back soon
hey, yes i thought that when i saw it!
thanks for sorting it out, i recently got most of the money, i hope i will have all of it till sunday
You are stopping?
That's always possible, I'll see in about 12 hours when I go in to school
That's what I'd lean towards as well, probably net loss. They have the least reliable internet connection I've ever seen there, it's remarkable.
If they're all on when I go in tomorrow, I'm going to up the work buffer to 4 days on all of them
Are you to worried about me being posed to overtake you?
12K for the 5 star badge? You catching me up? Daily pie? Meh, I will take any excuse to add computers to the WCG effort. It's something I really care about so I'm happy to put whatever I can into it. And if as a result I force myself to cycle and eat a little bit less junk food as a result... I'm sure it'll be better for my health
None of that made any sense, but, yes, I think I'll be catching up. If I can figure out what happened to my farm, I think the ~18-19k I got Friday and yesterday should be pretty easy to maintain
He was saying there is no one reason he is adding other than the fact that he enjoys to continue to add to the WCG effort. If he has to cycle (as in ride a bike) or eat less junk food to build another rig- so be it. KieX
It must be exciting to get 20 duals added to one's 'farm', but I haven't seen the top members with their own personal farms post up so much about their contributions, broski.
Aha, that makes more sense.
I think that making some small sacrifices to add another rig is pretty reasonable...and I'm glad to see him doing so
