    Sorry I was late to the sprint this week. I don't think I would have been to contribute enough to change our position but I got about 24 hours in. Well done to AnandTech for taking first in the last couple of hours.

    Thanks Engy Benjie. We discussed early on that it was inefficient to run MW on the Nvidia cards, especially with the SETI WOW challenge ongoing, but changed our minds for the last 20 hours or so and decided to invade Norway. ;)

    Is it worth me switching to big rig to pogs to see if we can take the No.1 spot.
    Think we are safe on Universe for a while , might also be able to push on numberfields to get us to No.1 in that.
    What do ya think?

    we could get number 1 spot. we was out doing oc.net but pdw swapped to numberfields as we was overtaken by us navy so he swooped that back.

    them amd zen 1700 cpus are pretty good on pogs, engy was doing 30k a day or more with his!!

    Still waiting for my Vega 64 to turn up (Didn't get allocated stock on launch day) to see what that can do. Really happy with my 1700 thus far.

    You'll need @hanluc to get his attention if it works, I didn't get an alert for mine :confused:
    All loaded up now, nice for a project to be able to cope with the demand on its server :)

    Hopefully he's seen its pogs and loaded up
    I need the pogs upload address so I can download more units on the 64 core without uploading the ones I've got already.

    I'm in.
    I have my alerts set also on forum posts, if anyone posts anything in here and the other place I get to know about it :)

    @PDW check your alert preferences and make sure 'Mentions you in a message' is checked.

    They are all ticked, I get the alerts count at the top of the page when I'm logged in.
    I still get emails for thread watching but mentions that used to work no longer do.

    Yep the alerting system seems to be Fubar.

    On the other hand I was watching and assimilating. Not that the assimilations are that happy about building up any sort of bunker. I think there is something weird in the Boinc client somewhere that determines how much work you will need based on the overall percentage runtime. The borged PC normally is enabled only overnight as it's cooling is pants and thus noisy, paused the rest of the time. So the machine has it in it's head that it's only working part time and so, despite setting a lengthy number of days for work queues, that is limited by the part time :(

    I'm on it from the beginning this time. Shame it isn't a GPU task. Wanted to give the Vega a stretch!

    Could always do some einstein on your Vegas. We can gain a couple of points on that with some power

    200+ Pogs uploaded. Only 11 have validated. This spint is going to be all about who gets lucky on the bunkers. If as previous sprints we find people downloaded the maximum 10 days worth of work, if you matched with them, you're wasting your effort.

    Need to do some tweaking with it. Want to get the undervolt stable first as it is pretty power hungry.
