    Talking Here is your chance Laurenu2.

    Ok lauren here is what I'm gonna do to give you a chance to catch up. Tomorrow I'll put all my GPUs except 1 on Collatz to bring it up to 100 Mil. That will give you a chance to pretty much catch up with me on Milkyway. Once I reach 100 Mil on Collatz everything including the kitchen sink goes on Milkyway. Then we'll see how long it takes you to catch me.


    Of course everyone is welcome to join in this mad dash to insanity.

    Well that will Not be fair I will you
    You have no idea who you are dealing with here
    With that much time I would just go buy 10 more 58XX and roll over your beep
    I have enough systems and resources to fit 60 GPU's you do not
    My advice is point all your nodes here on MY now
    that might give you a few extra days as #1

    I think I know who I'm dealing with. How about an egotistical crunchaholic that is extremely upset that he is not in first place overall. The fact that you're in third place overall must be driving you nuts.

    At some point you're either going to have to install solar panels, wind turbines or a small nuclear power plant just to power all of it. The real irony is that I don't have to pay for the electricity here.

    I've set everything to Collatz now just to insure that I'll be the first person on the team to reach 100,000,000 credits on a single project.
    The real catch me if you can is for combined credit. I do believe I have more than a few days at #1.

    I figure that as long as Collatz holds together you'll have less than a month before I switch back to MW.

    Only 22,000,000 to go but the pending credit is killing my RAC.

    I'll bet your local electric company loves your upgrades. How long before they have to install larger transformers?

    20 Mil to go on Collatz.
    29 Mil ahead on Milkyway.
    And I'M still 89 Mil ahead on combined.

    Good questions - also:
    1. Make sure you have extended your Windows desktop onto that card.
    2. Make sure you have a monitor (or dummy plug) plugged into the ATI card; windows doesn't like ATI cards without things plugged into them
    3. If you have multiple GPUs in the box, make sure to turn on "Use all GPUs" in the cc_config file.

    Yeah, tell us which ATI card, BOINC version, and OS, and we'll figure it out...

    I've got some older boards that act the same way with 58xx series cards. They work just fine with the 48xx series though. When I put in my last 5850 I had to shuffle stuff around a bit. At least it's making you work harder and giving me a chance to stay ahead.

    Did you get that card working yet? If not, you better speed it up. I've got the witchdoctor brewing up a new batch of trouble just for you.

    Laure it looks like you still don't have that card working. If you're not going to use it send it to me and I'll put it to work right away.


    Looks like the witchdoctor has just about finished your concoction. I told him he overdid it with Dnetc. I mean he really didn't need to flood so much of Poland.
