    Yes, as a matter of fact, it does! Makes me think I might borg a buddy's older machine to run it. He's said he wouldn't mind doing DC, but doesn't have the necessary "ooomph" to do it himself. Hmmmm.

    Oh well, 200 WU's still to clear. Shouldn't take more than a day or two.

    OK, made my 250K on Poem, will be switching over to Goldbach's over the next coupla days.

    Will give BigRed and Andy Brady a bit of a boost there & see if we can get the team score up a ways.

    Be warned, the WUs are miniscule and run in about 2 minutes on a Q6600. If you try to run a large cache then you will get so many that the whole machine bogs down but you need enough for a couple of days. The project frequently has problems but they seem to be short. They are still just running the test applications and no science is being done yet.

    Actually, I'll put that box back on Poem. The Goldbach thingie locked up on me today. I suspected something like that from a Beta project, which is why is wasn't on a production machine. I'll try again when the project gets a bit more experience.

    Probably the same problem I had. Just way too many (thousands) of those itty bitty WUs. As a result I've cut way back on it too.

    I think you're right, Bigred. The server appears to have got a bit jammed up, likely from all the bazillions of itty-bitty WU's, and we bit the big one. Oh, well. And I had even gone to the trouble of telling it to only phone home every couple of hours. I guess that made it even worse! At 00:02:02 per WU, the little buggers pile up quick!

    Oh well, onward and upward, or something.
