    I'm in but with very small PPD :)

    My company is doing some sort of expansion and I'll work out of town until the end of the year to supervise, so at the moment I only crunch with my laptop (dual Core Pentium P6100) and my desktop is "sleeping" at home, didn't want to trouble my wife with computer thingy and it's a wet season here in my country so thunderstorm and blackout will always come knocking, better be safe :D

    Go team TPU! :toast::toast:

    I'll have the 2nd Opteron Server running WCG tonight. Letting it finish up the last F@H WU before switching over. I'm out of spare power supplies, so I'll be short 2 of the lesser rigs I promised. Still bringing a total of 112 cores to the challenge.

    Woot, a multi-CPU system :D

    I have a quad-Opteron 8350 system at home that I ultimately retired after just a few months of use. It's enormous, very loud, and sucks lots of power for limited results. I replaced it with the much nicer 6128HE system.

    Anything special I need to do to be included in this(other than crunch, which I do all the time anyway)?

    Also, Norton, I PM'ed you about adding to the prize lot. A nice very good condition MSI HD7770 and another $20 PP gift.

    Ooh I'm in. See if I can get this random crashing thing sorted before tonight. It only does it if I leave the computer while its crunching.

    You know, if you have CPUs like that collecting dust, I could happily give them a new home crunching for the Team ;)

    I ran into problems of private kind and did not build up Darwin (rebirth of the dorm room PC) yet due to lack of time. The MAC adress needs re-registration to so in a best case scenario the machine is challenge ready on tuesday UTC+1.

    I set my main box to gaming clocks for the challenge. My electricity bill become even more "well fed" than it is now, but for this challenge I am going all-in. :)

    Question guys. Why do i have all these "ready to report" messages after a bunch of files? 2471 points seems low to me with 2- 2600k and a 965 BE crunching. Am I doing something wrong?

    Completed WUs do net reported immediately. It is nomal. If you want WUs to get uploaded instantly after completion, add

    Code:
    <cc_config>
    <options>
    <report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
    </options>
    </cc_config> 
    to your cc_config.xml file.

    GAH! This is the worst possible moment for firmware/hardware problems.
    doing so "awakened" some firmware bugs I wrote about several months ago. It was all fine for quite a while, but the bug is at it again. I updated my BIOS, but that seem to have introduced new bugs in the firmware, while keeping the old ones *groans*

    In short - my main box is currently crunching at 1.4 GHz and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it... *flips table*

    Sounds like a Cool 'n Quiet bug. Have you tried disabling it? Maybe try setting the multiplier in Windows? (assuming it's multiplier)

    p.s. I found a video game for you. (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻
    About 45 seconds in should be the magic number for where the action really starts.
