    WCG THOR Challenge 2020

    with regards to bunkering - I have one system (that has only been running a 2-3 weeks) that has a really high time remaining estimate (like 8+ hours per OPN WU). Thus it seems to not pull much of a backlog of work since it thinks its going to take so long per WU. Do I just have to wait until...

    Distributed Computing on Raspberry Pi

    I've long thought about getting a Pi to tinker around with but have never done so. Just curious about your expereince with the aforementioned FLIRC pi 4 case. Does it provide enough passive cooling to run all four cores on WCG (or other DC projects) 24/7? As I started to search for Pi4 cases...

    WCG THOR Challenge 2020

    Sounds like a cool event. Count me in. In addition to my normal cores, I scraped together an additional 5 cores from my ESXi hosts that probably wouldn't get much use otherwise. Its not much but but I hoping to build a new six or eight core rig before the end of the year so maybe that will be...

    15th Annual WCG Birthday Challenge by SETI.Germany

    Seems like Team Anandtech must have done a really good job bunkering. Today we are keeping pace with them, but yesterday they had quite the dump! Now that I have a good process down I should be able to get a larger amount of queued up work for the Christmas Challenge.

    15th Annual WCG Birthday Challenge by SETI.Germany

    I'll fire up a couple hosts for the event. Looks like we have a new WCG project to crunch: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/research/arp1/overview.do

    14th Annual WCG Birthday Challenge

    Ha! I have much less free CPU power these days it seems, but I always get the DC fever come this time of year! And it colder outside... I'll be better prepared for the Christmas Challenge.

    14th Annual WCG Birthday Challenge

    Having a bit a instability the last couple days with some new RAM, but I think I got it worked out. Adding a couple CPUs to the effort. :)

    Its been a while, and I'm off to a late start, but I'm in for 12 cores or so.

    WCG Christmas Race 2014

    Great job everyone! Looks like we are sticking right with France. Even a small increase in production could get us close to second by the end of the Race!! Crunch On!

    The WCG project is celebrating its 10th birthday. So SETI.Germany has sponsored a brief challenge from Nov 16th to Nov 25th. So tune up your hardware and crunch some WUs to hlep research and the HardOCP WCG team in the challenge! Maybe try out the new Uncovering Genome Mysteries project if...
