haha...funny!

Although I trust in my craftsmanship, I don't trust my wife to appropriately deal with any issues with my main w/c'd rig. Maybe I'll get her up to speed on BOINC on her machine, and let the laptop go on it's own, do or die.

Hey, how come I see folding accomplishment badges, but no BOINC badges?

Not all projects give the same point reward, thus it'd be unfair for some people. Also, most CPU projects fail utterly, unlike F@H where a good CPU can be 50-80k PPD, so people with good video cards would rack in good points. Hell, even video cards do not have the same point rewards (DNETC yields more points and only to ATI cards, PrimeGrid is the one for Nvidia cards but falls in second place), so too many bias is bad.

I do wish there was a BOINC postbit like the Folding one on the left. Or badges for huge milestones (like 10-25 mil points or so), but i prefer more just a BOINC postbit.

in 1999, everyone earned points the same way. Now adays, you have to use a little bit of strategy to keep your team competitive. I don't remember how many classique seti units I earned with a single core cpu, but this answer^ just falls way short, Starbomba. Just as a person that folds with say 10 nvida cuda cards is going to earn more points than someone with 3, (and get a million, 2million, 5million, etc).... for some reason, I'm not seeing a difference. If I ran radeon cards at folding, are they going to handicap my processed units vs. the people running nvidia? If I can afford to run dual xeons, will I not blow past those running a 10yr old cpu? I agree with Deafmetal, this is a good question and should be answered.

In addition to b3machi7ke donating a Geforce GTX 275, Jayce1971 has offered to donate 8GB of DDR3 ram!
This BGB has the makings for the biggest one yet. Get the word out people, remember that each person you refer that acknowledges it gives you an additional entry into the prize draw if you want a prize.

Yeah, not looking for anything special, but a milestone is a milestone. You hit 1 million, you get a 1 million icon, 5 million, etc.. Nothing too special, but enough to possibly gain more interest in supporting our BOINC team, and show folks what you've achieved with it.

Edit: Oh and team rank like the folding one.

These have been brought to management before. The main priority is the new website right now, but those are things that will be done with time

My point is, F@H is clearly delimited, and you can even calculate how much points you can get no matter your hardware. With BOINC it's another matter, even for people with the very same hardware. If one SR-2 with 4x 580's/6970's starts crunching SETI, and other one starts crunching Collatz, which one would you think that gets the most points? Both have invested the same amount of money, but get very different PPD. I'm not against people who do have the money to invest on it (i wish i had), but as there are many different projects, results will all vary.

You have to think on the projects, how they work with your hardware, how fast they process the points (like SETI, they can take even a week to validate a WU or projects who go down for maintenance and stop feeding WU's) and how to mix and match projects to get optimum results, and there's also the possibility of a person not liking a project even tho it gives over 9000 pts (i really wish i did not had to work on PrimeGrid, my main project will always be SETI, i don't even touch it unless it's BGB time). That's why i think BOINC badges, at least the ones regarding points, should not go out. Hell, some people can crunch up to, or even more than 1m pts a day, something a bit harder to do on F@H without some truly serious moolah. Plus, you can even cheat a bit with BOINC by point hoarding, something it does not seem possible on F@H, as i have always seen to download only 1 WU at a time.

BGB's, as they happen every month are not that worthy to make a badge (unlike Foldathons/Chimp Challenges), tho attending and running (at least the minimum 50k points) 3/6/9/12 BGB's in a row without skipping one should be badge-worthy IMHO.

What i do really want is a BOINC Postbit, to check at least points and team rank, as it would be pretty hard to track down all the WU's you do for all the projects.

I absolutely agree with you on everything but the second paragraph. I'm sure it's alot of fun knowing exactly how many points a day you will earn, before you even start. I prefer a bit more strategic pursuit, where my luck, hardware and ideas on how to use them both the best can help the team compete in a global arena. We don't have the biggest team..(I think that would be China!), but it seems were persistant, at the least. Hey, it's all for a good cause anyway, right?
