Still only taken from the top-300; I'll see if I can fix that some time this week.

Yay !!!

I finally made it also into this ranking ... http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I was just wondering is the average times are only taken from WUs uploaded in the last week?

So that if I upload only units from my fastest machine in any particular week I could get a good indication of how fast it is.

Pace: that's right. These stats are taken from WUs submitted during the last week.

However, please don't switch off your slower machines. At least leave them crunching on the "oldtimers" account for the time being; oldoldtimers@hotmail.com if I'm not mistaken.

Impress some women in the progress too. Yeah

Well, I can't go faster than ~4h 30m on this setup so I've decided to quit the average race and get some more WUs under my belt.
In the future you'll see me drop in the average rank but rise in total rank.
I'll leave it to you to toast Rags then http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

BTW, what happened to Manex?

Nice to be back on the list again, albeit only at #14...

Maybe I should move those PIII-500s to the oldtimer account...? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/icons/icon12.gif

Sorry Martin, I certainly won't be taking off any machines - there's a little person called ScooterX who overtook me during my holidays and I'm needing every WU I can to stay up there with him! (and by up there I mean down at about 125). I just meant limiting my cache upload to one machine.


9th August 2000, 11:09
I would still like to see a ranking by CPU Hours.
This is realy the fairest comparison.
Unfortunately, I would drop way off of the list. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif

9th August 2000, 13:57
I'd like to see the CPU time ranking as well though I don't think it'd be the fairest as Rags has obviously put a lot of effort into those times!

So Martin - can we burden you more http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif?

Ranking by CPU Hours would bee nice! <img src=http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net/smileysex5.gif>

Being able to upload WU's without losing them would be nice as well. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

Just lost two. I believe that's eight in a weeks time.


9th August 2000, 16:31
Ranking by most cpu-hours doesn't work, because win9x doesn't use cpu-hours but run-time-hours. The gui-version doesn't use cpu-hours either, not even under NT.

If you wants to get many hours, run the graphic version alongside the cmd-line. If you're using win9x, you can start many instances of the cmd-line and get many hours.

9th August 2000, 16:56
I suppose - but can we not rely on people to cheat? We could always spot the guy on a P3 with 139(!) hours unit average. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I am trying to get more machines running to secure myself a position in the top 100
As I mentioned in another thread, Diablo2 is killing my WU production.

Just to see if we have a business case here...

This is what the "ranking by effort" would look like (for the same week):

<TABLE BORDER=1><TR><TH>name</TH><TH>hours</TH><TH>weeks</TH></TR><TR><TD>breezer</TD><TD>7538.76</TD><TD>44.87</TD></TR><TR><TD>GnrlData</TD><TD>2279.16</TD><TD>13.57</TD></TR><TR><TD>He cubus</TD><TD>1490.22</TD><TD>8.87</TD></TR><TR><TD>Alastair</TD><TD>1440.52</TD><TD>8.57</TD></TR><TR><TD>Charles</TD><TD>1227.24</TD><TD>7.30</TD></TR><TR><TD>Bob & Sons</TD><TD>1227.24</TD><TD>7.30</TD></TR><TR><TD>Ees</TD><TD>1051.92</TD><TD>6.26</TD></TR><TR><TD>Brian</TD><TD>1051.92</TD><TD>6.26</TD></TR><TR><TD>Radioman</TD><TD>1015.27</T D><TD>6.04</TD></TR><TR><TD>JSB</TD><TD>964.26</TD><TD>5.74</TD></TR><TR><TD>Alpha Centauri</TD><TD>964.26</TD><TD>5.74</TD></TR><TR><TD>paulcs</TD><TD>964.26</TD><TD>5.74</TD></TR><TR><TD>box</TD><TD>964.26</TD><TD>5.74</TD></TR><TR><TD>JJc</TD><TD>876.60</TD><T D>5.22</TD></TR><TR><TD>Maggi</TD><TD>788.94</TD><TD>4.70</TD></TR><TR><TD>bert</TD><TD>701.28</TD><TD>4.17</TD></TR><TR><TD>Mark F.</TD><TD>701.28</TD><TD>4.17</TD></TR><TR><TD>DirtFarmer</TD><TD>701.28</TD><TD>4.17</TD></TR><TR><TD><-TT-></TD><TD>701.28</TD><TD>4.17</TD></TR><TR><TD>NauTiLUS</TD><TD>701.28< /TD><TD>4.17</TD></TR><TR><TD>hbitsch</TD><TD>701.28</TD><TD>4.17</TD></TR><TR><TD>Andy Watling</TD><TD>701.28</TD><TD>4.17</TD></TR></TABLE>

One obvious problem is that many people appear to have exactly the same number of hours. That's because on Seti's page, "Total CPU time" is listed in years, with two decimals precision. Not much I can do about that. That's also the reason why this is actually a top-22 (hbitsch and Andy Watling fall just below the top-20, but have the same number of hours).

So: interesting? I can just include it in the "weekly" (ahem http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif) reports I post here.


(Edit: whoops, that didn't come out quite right... This better?)
(Re-edit: buggery fsck...)
(Re-re-edit: waaaaaah, if it still isn't right, you'll have to live with it http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif. UBB keeps messing with my table.)

Martin, your comment seems to indicate using the wrong approach on top cpu-hours. 0,01 years is 87,6 hours, a much too big error. For Rags, this is 30 units.

But seti@home also rapports average cpu-time per unit. This is in 0,1-seconds. For a user with 8000 units, 0,1 second difference is only 13m20s, or 0,000025 years. Only then you've completed more units whan SGI SETI will this approach give a bigger error. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif
