    Eh, my "bunker" was only three days worth and took me about three minutes of "trouble". :ROFLMAO: Was crunching away normally with a ~3 day load buffer until then. Only did it for giggles once I realized it was just a matter of changing my proxy server port. ;)

    Well, looks like XS has thoroughly murdered us this time around; but figured I'd add a 4P-8160 to the mix in effort to help us stay in 2nd place. Of course it's an "untrusted" box so far as WCG is concerned, despite having been online before, so is currently only running with 66 jobs... thus leaving 126 threads sitting there wondering WTF is going on. :p (BTW, well done, XS! :D )

    Took too long for some of my parts. What’s the next challenge? I’ll be ready by New Years.

    Typically it is just PrimeGrid challenges until about March. Then the Formula-BOINC challenges tend to start kicking in. However, the Marathon portion of Formula-BOINC is year round so any production helps our cause for that. It just isn't as exciting.

    May is when the big dogs come out for the Pentathlon. We will all need to be ready for that one as it is an intense 2 weeks bouncing between 5 projects with varying durations and start times. Out of all of the challenges, this would be the best of them all. So, read up on some of our past Pentathlon threads to get an idea. You have to be quick and have your boxes tested well in advance. Bunkering is a huge ordeal. A new calendar of events will start soon.

    Friday night I also threw in a 4P-E7 Haswell and a couple more 2P Gold Skylakes for the remainder of the race. ;)
