I have to agree, as I think
it was VMware that may have caused my crash.
I suspended by accident (thought I had clicked shutdown) so when I turned it back on, the system date/time hadn't changed. That's just something I noticed, but something else
I noticed was that instead of using ~50% of my ram ~6400 that it's alotted) my system was using closer to 75% of my ram. I saw this, and said to myself 'here it comes: Out of memory: kill process xxxx', lost bigadv'. And sure enough, within two minutes, 'Out of memory' dashed my dreams of getting ~60k (what are supposed to be easy) points.
Problem is, our hands are tied. VMware's 3.0.1 player probably has some fixes for these issues, but it only recognizes up to 4 cores. I bet if we paid for the full version or switched to the workstation, it might be better, but who's to know? They probably saw a spike in downloads and what it was being used for and probably only wanted it DL'd by prospective buyers/users, rather than folders who want 25-26k ppd with an easy virtual machine like the one sniper's guide provides.
Eh, whatevs. I'm ok with 19k ppd for now (that dips lower if I get 511 pt WUs on my GPU, but that's OK). At least I'm seeing
these points, LOL
