    Noooo! I'm serwwwwious! yew needs to be doin more Yoyo!

    Unfortunately for TAAT, we seem to have hit the bottom of the top in Cosmo, little chance for the next team to catch up. Not sure how it all went to Hades so quickly for us. Ah well. But hey, if you guys get steamrolled like we did, it could help us a bit, perhaps! :p

    Oh and DANG! What about OCN taking 1st in Einstein!? Woot! I guess they have a majority of folders over there that decided to help out the BOINC'ers. Impressive stuff!

    I think we're going to get TAATed if we drop any more ranks on either yoyo cosmology or LHC. And at our current stalled progress that is inevitable :(

    Yoyo@home has ruined this pentathlon IMO, the current standings are not a fair reflection, with the being server up then down, some can upload, some can't.
    I am stuck hundreds of work units I can't upload, and the ones I have reported are still showing as in progress.
    I'll be glad to see the back of it.

    i have to agree, it was fun a few days ago, now i just feel as if im sat here in frustration over yoyo because of so many problems.

    yoyo is a good name for something that is up down up down.

    Meanwhile TAAT have pushed us down a slot overall as they climb up the LHC tables. We'll slip further if we can't get our fingers out as we'll be caught by others on both Cosmology and LHC :(

    I switched everything to cosmology a couple of hours ago. Hopefully if ba switches his power over and gets a few tasks going at once it should help

    I put a little extra in to Cosmology while Yoyo was running, but I'm back to about a 66/33 split with LHC and Cosmology now. Hopefully we have enough CPU power to hold the spots!

    We'll need something monumental to finish in the the top 10 overall now.
    Not only do we have beat TAAT on cosmology & LHC, we have to beat them by a distance.

    Why do I keep hearing that dramatic "da-dump" from the old Jaws movies?

    TAAT was a good job on Yoyo. Trouble is they are also powering up on LHC, and other teams are also pushing.

    We seem to be treading water on both LHC and Cosmology. At our current lack of output we'll lose at least two places in LHC and one in Cosmology before this thing is over :(

    Got into work to find both my machines had been set to the not-on position. Rectified that immediately, not sure if it will help much though, although one is the Dual Xeon mac.

    Anyone got a good app_config.xml for LHC?

    Nope. I'm just doing Atlas, controlling it from the LHC site's preferences. Not ideal as LHC only let's me have WUs that the CPU is free to crunch so there is a bit of idling time :(

    I'm timeslicing between Cosmo and LHC on all my machines, just trying to spread the love. :D Keep getting computation errors on LHC tho

    LHC especially Sixtrack has been a right pain in the <beep> for computation. All LHC need loads of RAM available. It's not an easy thing to get right. Some PCs seem happier than others.

    Oh and there has just been a bunker drop under us in Cosmology. Not a good sign :(

    Its the VM ones that are giving me trouble, I got 32GB on this mac and obv its not overclocked, but still getting computation errors.
