    Yeah, I turned advmethods on with my Opty, and I got a weird 229 pointer, which needed 20,000,000 steps to complete :eek:

    It's project 2079 if that means anything? :D I might turn advmethods off after this one completes and see what happens.

    Thanks Rich ;)

    My hot tip for getting better work units is to lie about how much RAM you have. Always put down that you have at least 512Mb per thread.

    Worked a treat for me.

    It was a sorta joke! Ever since you came on the stage I knew I was going to be stomped!
    Inter-team competition can be good sometimes, can get people to up the work-load.
    I don't have anymore money atm, so no more naked systems for me :(

    Cheers,

    I'm just changing jobs at the moment and it looks like I'll be in charge of a new SAP system at my new workplace. There are 35 brand new P4 660 workstations just waiting to be borged. That's 70 threads at roughly 225ppd (1 QMD every 2 days)= 15750ppd. The server and it's failover sister have 4 Xeons each. All of a sudden I feel quite light-headed....

    I cry every time I go into college and see 100+ P4's sat there doing pretty much nothing all day.

    I need to get friendly with their IT bloke :p

    Yeah I'm working on that now, but seeing as the WEP key was the first row on the keyboard followed by the second, I doubt it'll be too difficult :D

    Sad isn't it :(! If I were to be able to stick F@H on all of the PCs at mine, there would be over 350! Although needless to say they wouldn't know what hit them when the electricity bill came through!

    Hmm, tried to run it off a memory card, but F@H didn't have access to the internet... wonder if you can run it to download via HTTP?
