    We could all sign for the beta testing. That way any project waiting for approval would get it faster.

    I've been signed up for that for several years--still, the WUs that come out are very limited in number. Hopefully it's useful at least :)

    I've signed up from the very start. But never got a single WU. There we no beta-tests over the time I've been on WCG, it seems.

    OH SNAP!
    I just got one, too!

    Edit: [​IMG]

    (Yes, I know it's available in my native language, but Lithuanian translations of software never make sense and just confuse me. Many people I know feel the same way. Hence English :p )

    No Beta love here either :(

    WCG forum announcement said a small batch is going out first followed by a larger batch of about 12k WU's ;)

    Where is Mstenholm? Let us know if you came to Europe. We know that you are not safe in Cairo.

    Those who want more work for their BOINC client, POEM@home is a good choice for both CPU and GPU. WUs are small in terms of up- and download size so it is doable for everybody already crunching. The project is comparable to F@H, HPF and HCC.

    I went and ticked the beta checkbox at work and when I got home a couple hours later, forced an update on my main rig. I reported 6 WUs and received 6 new beta WUs.

    Don't see what was so hard about that. :p

    Edit: Ssssoooo, what exactly do betas do other than being experimental? Like, anything points wise?

    Their run time goes to the extremely-hard-to-level beta tester badge progress.

    In general, you will get credit for results returned as "Invalid" as well as "Valid" in the beta's (i.e. as long as the rig does the work- you get the credit)

    Beta is what WCG uses to test out new things. Points are the same (or sometimes even a bit lower). The runtime counts towards your Beta badges instead of the standard ones. And they're more fun :D

    EDIT: All three of us replied at once??? :eek:

    Wrote a blurb here about my recent HD 6950 2GB purchase on eBay.

    In a nutshell, I suspect bitcoin miners are dumping their 5000/6000 series cards in favor of AISCs.

    5000 and 6000 series aren't really recommended to crunch, a 7700 is as fast as a 6970.
