Can you explain what RAC means?
Recent Average Credit. The formula for calculating it is unimportant, but basically it's a rolling average of the points a computer or user is doing. The more points you do each day, the higher it is. Basically, if you do no points for a week, RAC drops by 50% (part of the way it's calculated)...it's an exponential decay gradually to zero. Because it isn't based on just one day of work, it does take some time to get up to speed (hence why we see that t_ski is doing ~200k PPD but his RAC is ~45k)
I will Be up and running again soon, Reloaded the pc with windows 7 so i could try and run more than 1 GPU work unit, I am in london till tomorrow but have the pc with me and have got things stable and running 2 GPU work units.
When i get home tomorrow it will be full speed ahead.
Wow--nearly twelve million! Without a doubt, our best day ever! Incredible job everyone!
#7 in the world today!
Still another incredible #1
our best day ever.... So far!
Great job Team!
On a weekend, no less. Great job all you crunching freaks!!!!!
I think we can hit twelve million some time this week
Yep, going to enable more GPU WU's on n3rdf1ght3r's 6950 tomorrow if it works out!
I cant figure out how to work boinc for the life of me -_-
Neither did I 3-4 days ago. I asked practically everybody on the team how to do this and how to do that, PM's flying left and right, probably bothering the snot out of half of them (i kid, i kid), but I finally got it working, Thanks again all
That's what we're here for!
LOL I've just been getting Dude12564 to do it for me Thanks DEON!!!
No problem MARTIN!
I must say, #7 worldwide... That's something I never saw coming!
TRULY PROUD OF ALL OF YOU! GREAT EFFORT/DEDICATION TO DO THIS. NOT ANY TEAM CAN DO THIS FOLKS. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
ALSO, IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS, FEEL FREE TO PM ME AT ANYTIME.
And that's why we're here
Given that we were hanging at ~18-23 or so in the world by PPD, this is incredible. Now if we can just find a way to sustain this amazing PPD even after the competition is over
Great job everyone!!!
Hopefully peeps stick around?
wow, I know why we have some king of good HCC xD
we went from what 6 mills to nerly 12, almost double? xD
Several people that I've talked with said that they will stick around, just at a more manageable (lower) output
I think that this has done great things for our team-building
That's definitely good news. I Was speaking with Norton last night about a few things. We might have another giveaway soon.
Can anyone tell me how to see how many points a day i am making? I am a bit confused with all the numbers on my profile so i need some help lol.
^ if you want to see WCG points then goto "My Statistics History" under My Statistics after logging onto the WCG site..
on the other hand if you want to see BOINC credits/points you can use free-dc
here are your statistics from Free-DC
for Milestones & Pie reports posted on TPU, the points you see are BOINC..
in general, WCG points = 7 x BOINC points..
Sure enough, we will HIT 12m sometimes a week.
now i don't see the 2.9m place in the list. LOL
Yes sirs, I'm sticking around but likely at a more manageable (lower) output . I think t_ski said the same (or similar) thing
Hopefully we can get all new members to stick with the team
Im planning to keep one rig on for crunching and run my vent server off it as well just dont know if this will make it laggy. Its only a 3x core but it runs cool and only takes about 130 watts to run.
