Alright guys, I know it hasn't been long since the last challenge, but it's almost time once more for another one!
Coming up in less than two weeks is a challenge celebrating the tenth birthday of the World Community Grid project, which has enabled volunteers to put their computers to work tackling tough scientific issues!

So, to celebrate, a competition is being held from 16 November to 25 November, open to any teams that want to join in. Naturally, TPU! will be taking part :cool:

Official Challenge link here!

I would like to thank our fellow crunchers at SETI.GERMANY for creating this excellent challenge. They're running a countdown to the challenge start and more, available here!

If you have any questions on how to set up your system, just ask! We'll be glad to assist!

SETI.GERMANY has done a wonderful job preparing Challenge resources; you can see a direct stats link and much more here

Requirements to qualify for a prize

in order for your name to be drawn- you would need to be an active member of this forum also (we will draw according to forum name so please post here if your WCG name is different and send me a PM)
- Participate for the duration of the TechPowerUp 10th Birthday Challenge
- Earn a minimum of 5,000 BOINC points for Team WCG-TPU during the Qualifying period (16 November through 25 November)
- Winners will be chosen randomly at the end of the qualifying period.
- Participation in the Game giveaway will require that you are actively crunching during this Challenge
How Random Winners Will be Drawn (thanks to theonedub):
To ensure everyone gets a fair shake and to minimize any potential conflict of interest while maintaining the highest level of transparency- I have drafted a new way to draw winners. The system uses (3) members and works as follows:
Originally Posted by The System
Member 1: This member creates a list of all qualified participants usernames. This list is sent to Member 2.
Member 2: Using the list of names, Member 2 will assign each entrant a unique number. A list of the usernames with the unique numbers is sent back to Person 1. The list of just the random numbers is sent to Member 3.
Member 3: Member 3 has a list of just numbers. They use Random.Org or whatever random system to select which number wins a given prize. The list of winning numbers and the associated prize is then sent back to Member 1.
Member 1: Using the lists, Member 1 ‘decodes’ the winning numbers into the winning usernames and posts the results.
The lists are sent as Private Messages through the forum. This establishes an electronic record of everything while also preventing alterations of lists after the drawing.
When the winning usernames are posted by Member 1, Member 2 can verify that the number belongs to the correct username and Member 3 verifies that the number was actually pulled as a winner.
The system makes sure that there is no bias or other favoritism at play when winners are drawn. Winners are drawn based on a random number instead of usernames- where a possibility exists to redraw if that person doesn’t like who won, draw a friend, draw themselves, pass on new members, or skip doing a random drawing all together.
My hope is that this will alleviate any concerns about drawings and their legitimacy. If it works smoothly, I would like to see this become the new standard when conducting giveaways that have prizes donated by the community.
If there are any questions about this system, drop me a PM.

I'm in with everything I got.:rockout: The Opty 6180 server has issues with WCG. It will spool down to 60% usage after a few hours and just sit there. Have to constantly re-start. No issues with F@H though....dunno what it is. I may try to re-install Ubuntu.

60% CPU usage or 60% clock speeds, or both? If the former, does it only run 60% of the threads, or does it run full threads, just at lower CPU utilization?

60% threads used and clocks are locked in the modded bios. Of course the work floats from core to core on theses 4P boards, but i will have 40% of the cores sitting idle at any given time.

60% threads used and clocks are locked in the modded bios. Of course the work floats from core to core on theses 4P boards, but i will have 40% of the cores sitting idle at any given time.
Bizarre. Is yours using the same [H] modded BIOS? I haven't had that issue on mine with either of the OS installs--currently running Ubuntu 14.10 on it and it's comfortably chewing through 32 WUs:


Do you have another HDD that you can do a test OS reinstall on?

Yes, I have a spare HDD to load the fresh OS. Going to try that this weekend.

I can't believe I haven't posted "I'm in" yet! I'm in with my 3 +1 for the challenge :)



Also, if anyone has any ideas for the game giveaway (to make it more interesting/different/interactive/spicy), I'd love to hear them (post or pm) :D
