OK

CHHAS threw down the gauntlet, (after much gentle prodding from Jord) and I've D/Led this puppy.

Do I just let it run?

ABSOLUTE NEWBIE!

Be gentle with me guys...I'll do what I can, but there will be no records set. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Welcome Bixler http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I run the command line version, as I find it quicker on my system.

The way I've set it up, I have a seti dir with the .exe file, and 25 sub-dirs with work units (for those times where the server is down). I have made 2 batch files, 1 that runs the executable with the -stop_after_process option, then changes to the next dir, going through all 25 work units, and another batch file which uploads the finished work units and downloads new ones.

This way, the batch file which starts the crunching just loops, and I run the up-/download batch whenever I feel like it.

Here's how low.

44hrs CPU time for ONE measly WU.

Isn't that some kind of record??

Anyway, I'll add my little drop into the bucket.

Naaaah, the all time low target time is something like 289 hours for 1 WU http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Just run some of the options in the background all time, Tim. Either the command-line version, or the GUI (set to crunch at all times, and if you use it as screensaver... Blank after 1 minute !!).

Jord, at 296 http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

You want slow? If I can find enough pieces I could try to get a 386SX(?) something or other up and running. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif The biggest problem might be finding an 8 bit ISA video card! The second problem would be convincing Windows 9x to boot! If that fails, then maybe a 486DX2-66?

I know, I should really be concentrating on getting my "faster" computers up and running.

Welcome, Tim!

Don't fret.. The longest journey begins with one step. Just keep going. At least you have one work unit.. I count 36 members at zero! What slackers! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif Oh well, maybe they are still working on their first unit with an abacus http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif
