    Vote: Hard DC'er of the Year: 2020 {part one}

    You know... normally I feel like this come HDCOTY time... But this year? Well, I've not been very active. Just a few "boxes" hammering away at CV19 w/ WCG. While this is, indeed, all well and good; it's not HDCOTY worthy as I've not been active in any of the competitions and such...

    Hit a WCG (World Community Grid) milestone? Post it here:

    Haven't checked things in quite a while... After 6.5 months am at 255 years for OpenPandemics. (Or at least will be during the next update) The geek in me likes the subnet reference. ;) And, at some point, Beta went Ruby.

    WCG - 16th Birthday Challenge

    Sorry, folks. I've not been to work in ages and never had a chance to fire up more boxes more than the 6-8 boxes that've been running WCG for months now. :( Not sure if it would've made much of a difference since I wouldn't have time to play the bunker game. (which, IMHO, needs to be abolished)

    After Ampere Launch Survey

    Been chugging along with my EVGA 1070 FTW and am excited for the 3080; but will wait a month or two. Really really want to jump now... yet I remember being burned once when buying at launch and the prices dropped majorly a few weeks later. Figure it'll give a chance for any major issues to come...

    Who, me? :whistle: ;) :ROFLMAO: Gotta take what I can get after the "upset" of losing HDCOTY. :p (Although, IIRC, it was to Skillz, who absolutely deserved it)

    If what DelTacoRay mentioned in the August voting thread counts, I'd put their name forward.

    Thanks! Not sure if this is 4x or 5x. Does ChristianVirtual still maintain the HDCOTM database?

    World Community Grid

    Lines 1 and 197 tell the story well enough; hits a bad "block" and just goes bye-bye. The error bit count seems a bit high, however I'm not sure what program that is, so can't reference my drive as an example. You mentioned trying a different data cable, and a different power connector, but...

    RTX 3000 series for distributed computing.

    $1,500 for the 3090. Fuck me gently with a chainsaw! :eek: o_O I get that it's a "great value" as a compute card... but for gaming? Jeez.

    WCG THOR Challenge 2020

    I didn't see anything about this (or could just be blind); but are there any rules against increasing the number of computers after the event starts?

    Vote: DC'er of the Month: August 2020

    Thank you for the nomination, Priller. :) Not sure how I missed that; probably because if my brain wasn't melting from the heat wave, it has been stressed by the fires near where pututu and I live. :p
