I went back and looked, and we were running WCG for the October POTM last year. I forgot about that when I was setting up the POTM.
:D


We are just warming up for the B-Day challenge.

Added a poll to the OP.

So how long is the return time on the average WU, and Microbioeme the best project to run?
Ie which project is the best?

Some are 15-30min, some 4 hours. The random HSTB task can be longer.
And the deadline?

Finding useable info on their site is a pain... Microbioeme is the best ROI according to their site followed by Open Zika....

Well I wasn't figuring on setting up Linux VM's on all my machines......
That combined with bunkering is more involvement then I'm up for right at this time.....

Smash childhood cancer gives out decent RAC on Windows, and the work units on a 4770k are usually just under an hour each.

My friends I have bad news.

I will not be able to do anything but run straight through, my wife of 30 years had emergency surgery yesterday and is currently on a ventilator in an induced coma. I will be spending my time with her.....

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,

I need to be with her.......

Sorry.

EG
