    Indeed, I would have expected 70k PPD to do more than four stars, realistically

    Linux re-installed and running. I'm going to let boinc run normally (no report_results_immediately=1), hopefully that'll prevent whatever issue I was having.

    The part timer pulled 3.5K and saved the day :)

    hmmm... 100k PPD for 5-stars, maybe?
    ...maybe W1zzard knows something we don't and adjusted the badges to accommodate it? i.e. GPU work soon?
    i.e. kinda like "this post has three lines. HL3 confirmed." :roll:

    Just a quick question from my team here: (no point in starting a thread over this)

    Regarding my stars that link to my WCG badge below, where are they? I produce an average of over 2,000 points a day and should have 2 stars, or at least one. I noticed the missing of my stars after the recent TPU forum make-over. Is there just some sort of delay, any idea's? :confused:

    It took a bit for W1zzard to restore our badges after the switch to the "new" TPU. The scoring is different though as I used to have around 3 stars for the last couple months with the same cruncher:

    Oh I see :/ What is the new scoring then, or is W1z working on a possible fix for this issue? (I'm sure it's not high on his priority list, just curious).

    I don't know what the new requirements are for badge stars...
    I personally haven't reported it to W1z as I know he is busy. I do believe I saw someone comment on it in the "Feedback and Bug Report" thread.

    It sure seems that the scoring requirements have changed though. I noticed it after we got the cruncher badge back but just assumed it had been changed.

    That isn't good!!! Someone hacked into the systems. Might want to stiffen up the security on them.

    I'm sure if a change were to be implemented Norton would have notified us or even asked for our input beforehand. Probably just a miskey.

    Now that the big challenge has wrapped up and whatnot, I am sure they will iron this out and place the reqs back where they have been :toast:

    I have two out of 8 threads as MCM and the rest are fight aids. I think the MCM go faster than all the other WUs

    The only other MCM's I got were the first batch, that were bugged up. I dumped them and finally, I have some more. I did run a couple last week but now, I have 6!!

    Somebody must like me! o_O

    I woke up and found my i7-3930k system locked up---it has an issue where if it reboots without being connected to a monitor sometimes it doesn't come back. Problem solved, anyways for now. Unfortunately I only have another week and a half of crunching for now; I head home on the 17th and the crunchers will have to be turned off :/

    Been fiddling with my networking a bit more just now. Which brings this up:

    Code:
    21:04 - librin.so.1: there are 3 possible situations when it comes to networking:
    1. nothing works but it is known why
    2. nothing works and nobody can figure out why
    3. everything works and ...nobody can figure out why
    21:04 - librin.so.1: ;]
    21:05 - zocky1983: so basically you are screwed either way :P
    21:05 - librin.so.1: yep ^^
