Don't like your new toy unless there is a USB connection on it. Put it back in the safe.
That makes sense I guess. Thank-you
Originally WCG used a client from United Devices. Later they migrated to BOINC. They figured 7 to 1 was a reasonably fair means of converting from UD points to BOINC points.
Sorry brandonwh64 but I don't think you could call guns toys, I'm not American so I don't understand this fascination for guns.
Now back on topic, anyone else got a truckload of errors on the 10. and only on "GO Fight Against Malaria" project?
Like this, three pages of them.
Yup. Got 14 or so myself. Though it appears to have been an issue with WU's:
Well nothing to worry about then, they didn't use any CPU cycles so nothing lost.
I'm gonna break the 2k mark shortly. woohoo At 1948 in bionic now.
2048 with 6 pending validation woohooo. Next stop 5k
^^Looking like a good start to me.
Goods news guys, Lauren and I are doing quite a bit better money wise. I've been doing some computer repair work on the side, and she's got a job lined up it looks like.(Thus my new purchases.) We're hoping to move from where we are at now in about two months or so. We'll see.
Hell yea edward!
Well guys more crunching power coming today! Im bout to go do a local pickup with a TPU member for a 940BE! My home cruncher will consist of:
Phenom II 940 Black Edition
18 Days Left
For completion of the Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy - Phase 2
Looks like this is the first of a few this year that will be completed. New projects in the pipeline, possibly more Water-based research.
NICE! I will get my new quad up tonight and my third is a few parts shy but it will be running 24/7 100% as well!
Good to know. I wonder what project will replace it?
Unrelated, but what is a good average ppd guys?
More crunching POWA!
Unknown at this point. We just completed some batch of BETA WU's but anyone's guess what the actual new projects will be at this stage.
Your i7 should be able to do just over 3K Boinc or 21K WCG point per day if it's crunching 24/7.
But WCG is all about whatever you can give towards research. So a good average PPD is whatever you can afford to keep giving consistently
Well guys sometime this week I am going to bring another dual core cruncher online. Now Anyone have any experience crunching under Ubuntu?
The history build is complete!
Go to applications, then ubuntu software center, and search for boinc manager. If I remember correctly, it downloads and installs itself- not 100 % sure though. After that, boinc manager will show up in applications-system tools. Setup after that is just like boinc manager in windows.
Does Bonic run as efficient under Linux as it does under windows? Why I am asking is I am debating what os to run on the new cruncher.
I would think it would be the same or better, but I never tried both on the same rig to compare them. I run ubuntu because it's free, but it can also be a pain in the ass too.
I already have one system running Ubuntu 11.04 so I am used to it. And like you said it's free. I wasn't really wanting to buy another copy of windows.
Windows will give you slightly more PPD. But Linux will finish WU faster, so your project runtime/badges occur faster. Been the case for a while, so choose whichever you prefer.
In terms of OS, you can always use the 240day trial of Windows Server 2008:
I'll take a look at it. Thanks KieX
I got an invitation to HP cloud and was thinking to use it folding but since they reduced the available RAM to 20 MB it didn't make any sense. I then made 10 two core "servers" and got the first started up running WCG. The first four CEP2 resulted in errors before they even started. The hcmd2 now have a predicted 160 hours left (keep growing) and the dsfl vary between 2 and 4 hours and has during that for the past 3 hours. Not great. I have one problem and that is that I can't detach the PuTTy window (I use XP, don't know if it matters) so I can't start up the next 9 "servers". Any input Bogmali, F150?
Edit: My 160 hour WU ended with an effective CPU time of 2.79 hour. Still havn't sorted out how to detach my PuTTy window.
