    The Road to the Top Ten

    Well we are on the way we should take 14th from the The Final Front Ear
    That are pumping out more and more WU's but they come in spurts
    I suck up all I can when they make them ready

    At this rate we should take 10Th in 2 to 3 weeks

    MindModelling is a tough one all right.. VERY short wu's, so lot's of network traffic and I found it would often wait until it finished all wu's in the cache before requesting any more for some reason, so at times there could be periods of time without any work requested....

    So I'd run it at a high priority with another project at a lower priority.

    Plus it has long periods of network outages so you cannot report the work you've crunched.

    At this speed we might take #8 by tomorrow

    #8 by tomorrow looks perfectly possible.

    Even better news, none of the other teams seem to have turned out yet so we might be able to a few more before the work runs out.

    Any guesses on how long this "several weeks work" will really take to do?

    Yes I would say it is a sure bet that we will have 8th This taken from there web stats
    #8 Free-DC 157,590 points
    As yesterday was only 12 Hr of crunching for me

    And I will be in range of Bok to give him the I promised him

    We Have already completed 5.24% of the WU's in less then one day
    So it will NOT be that long 2 maybe 3 weeks I think

    WOW!

    Over 100,000 workunits were crunched yesterday! There are only 885,000 left!

    At this rate we could be finished in less than 10 days.

    The only downside is that Lauren's output seems to have melted the stats server they don't seem to have updated properly today!

    I also noticed that IB and Kman1293 have joined in the fun - BRILLIANT!!

    I reckon we are only a day away from getting #7.

    Yep I've tossed one quad core on it, and I'll be tossing another one on it tomorrow

    And I see that pfb has joined the party

    I'm starting to remember why I LUV BOINC so much:

    Requesting 177918 seconds of work...got 2 new tasks

    My boxes have been running out of work all day

    We are going to BOINCstats today!

    I have mine set at 9.25 days and I get like 500 WU's at a time and it only takes me about 10 Hrs to do them
    Bad side is the PC only uploads every 10 Hrs
    Set yours at 2 days

    We missed BOINCstats by only this much Only 3,568 Points Behind right now

    I am at full speed now with only a trickle of power going to the other projects I am working on
    I think I have to hit 50K+ to come close to what is needed to take down SETI.USA By tomorrow
    Hope I can that High

    It seems that if you change between projects a lot (as I certainly do) BOINC goes a bit senile. A few project detaches and resets and Lauren's tip seem to have sorted me out

    From the stats on the site right now it looks like we have BOINCstats.

    Can we make #4 before the work runs out?

    Well this is disappointing. I can't get enough work to keep my beasts fed.
    Even with 5 day cache setting. /me thinks server is swamped

    It's taking about 1.5 to 2.5 minutes to complete a work unit, so they are fast.

    That might be because I have been Dumping for the past few Hrs
    Trying to see If I can meet my morning deadline
    Must be close to 15,000 WU's that have been uploaded

    See if you can keep up with me over there on SETI and hunting for LGM.
    OK so what do you need a 3 week head start

    I'm trying to come up with a way to challenge you in some way, to keep it interesting for you, and to make you work at it.

    I'm more interested in what it will take for you to match my SETI output actually...

    I'm sure it will be interesting or I wouldn't bother you.

    Yep - put some %age into this for a little bit although seeing as I'm getting:

    Code:
    13/02/2009 1:02:33 PM|MindModeling@Beta|Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.  
    Requesting 380160 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks
    13/02/2009 1:02:38 PM|MindModeling@Beta|Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
    Not sure useful that %age will be

    Maybe they doing one of their 'workunit' prunes and will be back later today

    or...maybe SETI.USA gave them a few quid to stop us overtaking them

    poem@home for the linux boxes and spinhenge for the windoze (spinhenge sucks on linux - 30% slower).

    Oh, and Lauren and IB probably did break it after all

    That's ok Lauren, it's a BETA setup anyways. Good test for them to see if they can handle the load.
    Schweet!
    The challenge, if it's not too much of a bother for you, is to find out how many cores it's going to take to match my output.
    Free-DC is so far behind in this project, it wouldn't hurt to crunch a little to find LGM for Free-DC anyways.

    Hint: I don't use CPUs on Seti

    NO NO NO, that won't work!!!
    And...
    I want to know how many CPUs it takes to keep up with my little GPU farm!
    Once this is over, I can recommend you the card(s) to get for GPU related projects.
