I'm knowledgeable about LMI (use it at work) and TeamViewer (use it personally) so i'm open to any testing of that method.
...CUT... a lot of people would benefit from this
I agree, heavies don't qualify. It will be a purely subjective choice on "MY" part. I will look at BGB points, RAC history etc.
Okay, LMI only works with windows and right now both my AMD systems are crunching under Linux-64b with all the ia32-libs installed so they can run anything. Soon as we can, I will let the projects run down and swap to Windows-7 64b. Win-7 64b is the default unattended boot mode.
As a test, I will setup the 4 core system for you. All I need is to PM you the password (which you can change if you want) and you PM me your login info. Make it special, a new LMI account, like BGBLMI@gmail.com
or something so you have no worries about privacy or anything else.
The 955 system (AZZA Box on left)
is setup for minimal Win-7 install, has MSI Afterburner running with the GPU's already OC'ed to max. The 955BE runs 4.2GHz 24/7 so long as the A/C in this apartment works. Under full load, it averages 46-49c constantly without hickup. It has two aircooled 9800 GT cards inside that will run anything except Milkyway. When you log in, BOINC will be installed, but have NO projects assigned. YOU will have to assign the projects using YOUR real email/PW etc. No worries, there is no monitor hooked up to it unless I need to make a BIOS change. I use VNC to talk to it on my LAN. Besides, I couldn't care less what emails and PW's are used. I'm an honest dude and won't record or do anything stupid and childish like that.
You can reboot the system, 30 second timeout with the dual Win-7/Linux partition, then defaults to Win-7. You can do whatever you want. It has two 2.5" drives. the Boot is an SSD, the other is a data/pagefile drive. No internal drives, just the two small ones in the Kingwin thing. I will set the display for 640x480 minimum color so it works faster on remote connections.
Edit: Better yet, I will remove the two normal drives and put in the Clone Win-7 only drive. Piece of cake and takes seconds. That way, even if you format it or whatever, no problem! LOL!
Soo, plan on using it for BGB as a test... that is 48hrs and should tell us if there are any problems. We can set it up the day before, make sure it's working properly. And of course, once you let it go, it just goes and probably you don't have to do a thing after that unless you want to change a project or something! After BGB, if it worked well, then we simply detach from all the projects, delete the login stuff on LMI and all good again!
If you are willing and have the time, then it's a done deal and I would say "Thanks for helping me test it!".
PS: What I REALLY like about this is all the points still go towards the TEAM goals!
PPS: I just thought, it would be easier in the long run if "I" setup the LMI account, then pass the info to you. You can then change the Password if you want, then connect to the system and do your thing. That way all I would have to do is keep changing the password for each person that uses it and they don't have to do a thing!Edited by Tex1954 - 8/28/11 at 3:28pm
