It's lucky he has a computer that can crunch 20 tasks that way.
3) Message boards : Number crunching : Maximum daily WU quota per CPU? (Message 18381)
Posted 27 Oct 2007 by Stephen Miller

The reason I want more wu's is I have been here 24/7 for the last 3 years now.

I don't run 24 different projects as you can see so it isn't like they will be on my pc very long either.

It takes this dual core P4 3.2 about 45 minutes to do two wu's

It is telling me right now that I recieved my daily quota of 8 wu's but actually I have not got anything in the last 24hrs.


Not sure where you looked, but of your 3 active computers: one PC has 12 wu's and one PC has 8 wu's. One little PC hasn't contacted LHC since Oct 3rd and ran all the way home without receiving any WU's.

You have received work in the last 24 hours. You also have turned in completed work.
4) Message boards : Number crunching : New work when? (Message 11855)

I too have been waiting anxiously for new work and decided to Google the Particle Accelerator Conference 2006 in Edinburgh. I discovered it isn't until June 26-30, 2006. Forthcoming is a nice vague term which when decoded is "a long time." As 6 months is a long time.

Now they didn't say that work was dependent on its presentation at the conference. But if they ever say that work is forthcoming, then I would surmise that it could be considered something like 6 months off.

Best part about BOINC is the ability to spread the crunching around. I also like the statistical competition, but contribute based on the science and my whims. I don't consider SETI to be hard science, but I will always contribute some to their projects for having the fortitude to create BOINC in the face of adversity.

I'm hoping work will come our way, but I'm not holding my breath.

This email may be read as pessimistic, but I consider it more pragmatistic.



This may have a double signature. I'm just testing. My apologies.
