A little update of the month of November:
Last month we had 38550, so hopefully we'll hit 40k by this month's end (I'm not too worried though).
In other news, the SMP client is doing a decent job of racking up some points. Only the very first WU I tried failed on me, but since then everything is running very smoothly. I'll have another one out by the end of the day too.
That being said, I had some issues:
1- I had a 200MB .dat after finishing off this monring's WU, so it took 1 hour to upload to stanford (it's a bug... but I wanted those points!).
2- Because the program isn't optimized yet, it seem to report that I have 4 cores running (by default the client opens 4 threads, there is no way to change it at this time). Normally it should report 3 cores, one on my D915, and 2 on my C2D.
I mean once the SMP client has everything ironed out, it'll be the deciding factor for points produciton. I'm turning in a work unit every 9h30m, and at 587pts each...Another nice touch would be a 32 bit version, because there are some programs that don't like 64 bit (Flash, Java...) I've tried everything to get Flash, but it just didn't work for me.
So there you have it, it's the home stretch, but unfortunately I don't think we'll make the top 5 this month, much less the top 3. I have exams for the next couple of weeks, so I'll just keep running the Linux client... won't really be using my computer anyways, have to study.
P.S. How's it going justken? Everything is setup the way you want it?
EDIT: After having looked at extremeoverclocking stats, there is a good chance that I can be in the top 3 folders (based on 24h average PPD). As it stands I'm 8th, but seeing as I'm hitting approx 1500ppd with this machine alone (the D915 does about 125ppd) the stats should reflect this by the week end, provided I dont' run into too many glitches.
