They say her chances are 50/50.......

I will set WCG to run unattended but that is all I"m going to be able to do unfortunately,

Sorry.

Yeouch, really sorry to hear. Best of wishes for her recovery, and I definitely agree with the others - real life is significantly more important than any game, contest, or event, especially when it entails those one cares about the most.

I am getting plenty of FAAH2 tasks atm if anyone needs that badge. They only have a 1 day deadline so it can't be used for bunkering.

The interesting part is that there are still a bunch of beta units mixed in there AND they're completing in under an hour on my end.

I don't see us signed up yet, looks like @DarkRyder needs to do it since he is registered as team captain.

 

Looks like most of the WCG tasks have 10 day deadlines, so bunkering could start later today.  Is there a maximum amount of work this project will let you download?  A 10 day bunker would be a lot.

EG, you shouldn't feel sorry about staying with her : we will always have more competitions

Best wishes to your wife


I haven't run WCG in ages (don't even remember my login since it's different than the one for BOINC), does it have AVX2 support for anything?

I have been able to get a bit over 1200 on my 32t machines. Looks like it might be a # of tasks per core limit. I'll have to use several clients per computer.

I don't know if any use AVX. Zika and OET def run much better in Linux though.

Let the bunkering begin. smile.gif
