Im trying to work out the best way to do it. I know that I can beat either one of you when I concentrate on 1 project, but I dont have a chance in 2 projects against both of you. I dont want to buy any boxes as I have nowwhere to run them. As it is I have an opty165, 2 x64 3200+, dothan 1.4, axp@2100mhz, axp@1733 and a couple of others that are either off all the time or only powered on for a hour or 2 a day.

Thats why i need Jimwah for the great XTT flanking manouver.

Alls i have is
1 x DX 2000
1 x DX 1.6
1 x Gallatin EE
1 x P4 3.0
1 x P4 3.0 (confined to DPAD)
1 x Ahtlon 600 :rolleyes:
1 x P4 1000 Mobile celeron
1 x P2 400 :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
1 x P2 400(mobile) :rolleyes:

They'll be hopefully another 2 x P3's and one P4 3.4 coming on line but thats it for now (read Christmas maybe :hehe:)
Not bad for a fella in DC since March/April 06

Well.. DX 1.6 is in testing. Coming online tonight. And DX2000 is only at 2.55. Must see is there a pin mod also for the non-LV chips. hmmm I thought i saw KB had DX2000 @ 2.75.
They ran at 2.9 all night once... no mods at all... but they won't go near that now.. must have been lucky.

:hehe: These are the rigs I have QMC'ing at the mo:
-P4 3.0 @ stock
-e6300 @ 2400
-Sempy2800 @ stock

And since I got a bit twitchy after you had a few good days twb, I put on..
-Opty144 @ 2.8

I have backup....just waiting for the opportune moment. I've had to stop DIMES on one of boxen at home 'cos it kept crashing my router (why ~50mb up & down freaked it out I do not know), but I can't afford for any machine to be without work with Team XTT orders in place.

Keep battling riptide & twb I've got one eye on the SOB stats & the other on QMC :fight: And good to see Jose & DAK back at the QMC :)

We need some more members, maybe we should ask for some help from the SOB devotes and promise a load back in return, I know once we are number 1 and have a good lead I will be back into SOB. Maths projects just dont have the polictics its just pure powa !!!

How long till we're No1 in QMC then? (Free-dc stats have been blocked at work so can't check) I'll give a hand out just as soon as I take care of some business in SOB ;) (14 days :rofl:)

EDIT: eeeh i just read the opening post. oopsie. So 45 days.

jimwah
09-24-2006, 01:40 AM
I'm willing to contribute to SOB once we hit #1 here, if we get some people over; we're creeping up to Team Anand, but could do with some assistance.

I'm putting another box on today hopefully (P4 2.66Ghz), spent this morning swapping fans in Antec PSU's so they don't toast themselves in a few days, so I should be good to go now. :yepp:

I pulled my 144 opty to run d2ol, but I added a x2 4200 @ 2.6. It has already done over 1000 points in just about 12 hours. :D I still have the 146 opty on it. I should be producing 2700-3000 a day now.

Hehe, that's the exact same thing I'm doing -- xfered some power from SoB (after they completed their blocks) to QMC to push twb, but still leave enough SoB to keep gaining on him from that front. :cheer2:

Im maxxed, going to be down to 1 rig on SOB for the time being, do the QMC thing, let riptide pass me.......then maybe try and catch him at some stage....


Im also watching you Paladin.....

jimwah
09-25-2006, 01:51 AM
I'm getting concerned as twb & Paladin close in :D I'm hoping the extra boxes I put on the QMC will boost my daily up from ~4.5k & give me a fighting chance to keep my position. Looks like my work machine didn't upload any of its WU's over the weekend too, so that should dump 1k at least today.

:wierd:
twb ^^

jimwah
09-26-2006, 11:52 PM
I hit 200k :D

I had a good 5.8k day yesterday, & either you guys have eased off, or have some monster WU to come in soon! I seem to either get the 2hr30m WU's, or the 60hr monsters at the moment.

[XC]thewildblue
09-27-2006, 12:19 AM
Well done. I havent turned any rigs off so its just a case of waiting for some big WUs for me.

Paladin
09-27-2006, 07:51 PM
I'm not so good about restarting them at night during the week. :slapass: Some weekends I leave them on 24 though.

A move coming soon which has some rigs down for packing. :hitself:

[XC]thewildblue

You have past me now paladin. These long WUs are killing my stats.

jimwah
09-28-2006, 12:18 AM
A move coming soon which has some rigs down for packing. :hitself:

First priority at the new place - internet connection! I had a week of downtime while waiting for my line to come alive (moved house about a month ago now) & it was painful; but it did give me a chance to get all my rigs in order. Good luck with the move ;)

I've been feeling like crap for the past few days so haven't really looked at what kind of WU I'm getting for a while. I'll be surprised if the machines can sustain almost 6k a day, but I'm happy I've been eating blueberry & lemon pie this week :D

We're almost within 800k of TA, keep reeling them in guys :toast:

[XC]thewildblue
09-28-2006, 12:23 AM
Ive just got some 110 hour Wus....I think Im going to cry...lol

Paladin
09-28-2006, 04:39 PM
Beyond first priority for me, it's a requirement equal to electricity. Same DSL company serves new location so I don't have to break my contract (and get hit with penalty fees). Different cable company, but I hate all cable companies and try to stick with telco and satellite. I'd get 'naked' DSL if I could since I already use VoIP ($99/yr) as primary.

twb: My pass was only a fleeting moment in the sun til your slow WUs dumped. I have at least six 60-90 hour ones partially completed on the packed rigs. I need more stats update/fixes than that! :p:

Good to see those monsters finally upload yesterday twb, nice pie for you; pretty level between us again today so far. It's a good job I had a bit of a headstart 'cos it been a fairly close run race on the daily production in general.

Hope things are going well on SOB rip, & that the diversion tactics are working! :toast:

It seems our TWB has ramped up a little in SOB :cool: I might have to ease up on the WCG for a day or two. Still going to plan I think however? (UNless James has gone and borged things ;) )

[XC]thewildblue
10-01-2006, 10:54 PM
Well seeing as I wasnt really getting anywhere on QMC and you were so keen to pass me, I thought that I would have a little reshuffle, should still manage 4k on QMC a day (hopefully) and then have around 50g an update on SOB. This of course goes up in the evening when I power on what I can....which is usually an opty 165@ 2.6 an 3200+ @ 2500 and a 3200+ @ 2000. So that boosts me slighty but unfortunately they arent 24/7 if they were I think that I could of held off you in SOB and Jimwah in QMC. But then if that was the case I would have also powered up a couple of AXPs as well......

jimwah
10-02-2006, 12:23 AM
I feel a little un-sportsmanlike with this two-pronged attack on James; I'll be honest, I didn't really expect to get the output I have done recently, I think the allendale has made a big difference here.

Looks like a close run thing over on SOB yesterday, when we get this #1 on QMC I'll throw a rig or two at SOB & help you guys out.

[XC]thewildblue
10-02-2006, 12:33 AM
Nah its all in good fun, I mean at least the team is benefitting. I think that your outproducing me anyway, like I said if I was at full farm status then it wouldnt be a problem.

[XC] riptide
10-02-2006, 03:01 AM
Baaah. Its time i dumped a few blocks of the olde P2. Hasn't dumped in a a week or so. Either has the gf's laptop. And another 24hr dump off the usual rigs. I'll put this baby to bed in style. I'm having a very unfortunate run of it with these tests. they're all very high n numbers. And they can affect results by up to 20% downwards. Maybe we're near a prime?? :confused:

[XC]thewildblue

Where is this dumpage thou speakage of ? I see a paltry 290g, surely there is more than this.....hehe

Will you take me today ?

Ooo its close over there!! Dumpage required to keep the good name XTT unblemished - don't make me come over there & run SoB under the name riptide :hehe: I jest, that really would be unsportsmanlike :slapass:

Thats is my dads P4 3ghz @ 3.15 ;) You'll notice its about 15-16G an update. Thanks Dad !;) The rest haven't seen the stats yet today. :D I'll be home later tonight. Another 3.5 hours maybe. Not sure if I'll take you... but it'll be damn close!

I love this stuff.!

[XC]thewildblue
10-02-2006, 11:14 AM
Well I added an AXP1700+ tonight from my brother, wont be on much but it all helps. Im mostly an AMD guy you see I feel they do just the same/better as a P4 in this project. The opties seem to be better. My DX@2.95 does about 4.2 total with 3 clients, the opty 165@2.6 is doing about 6.2 !!!

Oh yeah going for over a 100g per update.

Anyone been watching Helhiem he is tearing up the stats.

Since DIMES has been down so much lately I switched over a couple more rigs. :)

[XC]thewildblue
10-02-2006, 11:42 AM
It should be back up soon in Dimes, I have been getting terrible scores so we should have a big dump of some kind.

What have you got on SOB at the moment ?

Helheim
10-02-2006, 12:48 PM
DX rig @ 2.8Ghz (3 clients)
DX rig @ 3.0Ghz (3 clients)
DX rig @ 3.6Ghz (3 clients) - This one is my main so it's not 100% full time
P4 3.06Ghz
AMD XPM @ 2Ghz - This is the HTPC so not full time either.

How many do you have going?

[XC]thewildblue
10-02-2006, 01:03 PM
Well to get the 100+g an update its the following
DX2.8 3 instances
DX2.95 3 intances
P4 2.26
Opty 165@ 2.6
3200+ @ 2.5
3200+ @ stock (laptop)
AXP1700+ stock

What k/n pair have you got on the Opty? You know James, AMD's are well proven to do about the same as a P4 at same clock speed. However, its hard to compare, as different k/n tests give very different scores and credits. As I said I've gone through a bad patch, but I can see in my Q that there's a few nice ones coming along. That will bump my scores up by the end of the week.
Oh ya and I'm less than 300G away from you now. You're gonna get T-XXXed sunshine!! :rofl:

[XC]thewildblue
10-02-2006, 10:15 PM
The optys are both over 3mil each at the moment, havent really looked any deeper. So was that a one off dump last night or can you sustain that ? The gap would have been larger but the p4 and dx were down from Friday until Sunday afternoon due to the thunderstorms....look you even got me making excuses now....hehe

Going to try and call a couple of reserve machines this week, get my sisters p4 1.6 (if she doesnt stress out too much) and my dads 3200+ laptop.....they wont be 24/7 but it might make the difference.

Ahh. Opti's dual core? Thats makes sense now. That would equate them (In Sob alone) to a single core C2D at 3+Ghz ;)

No James, that is not a one off dump, that is sustained, just that I only dunp when I'm there. I haven't got my GF's laptop to dump yet. She doensn't have BB yet in her new place.. but getting there.

[Excuse Mode] but ya know we had hurricanes and tornadoes and they blew one of my DX's half way down the farmers field... then the bull thought it looked sexy and humped it to bits.. so... hard times james [/Excuse Mode] :rofl:

In saying that you should look at my DPAD scores too... I'm also managing to keep that floating above water too ;)
But to keep Helheim off my back, I think I have to acquire new hardware.

edit: All this borging james.... just remember one thing. DON'T DROP A TEST! If your sis gets pee'd off at you using the laptop after a few days, and you don't transfer that test to another machine to complete it, you'll loose all those points on that test after a month. - and that will qualify you for an 'Insta-XXXbagging'

I have a feeling with QMC that its long WUs, they may have just dumped etc.

One of my QMC boxes has 2 GIANT wu's. One is 36 hrs and the other 48:)
It was odd to see just two wu's listed in que, as I keep a two day que. I thought something was broke:D

Well i had a scare myself. Lappy and one DX ... one word.... Trojan.Lootseek (http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2006-050415-4335-99)

Problem is I have no access to fix any problems. Im hoping its a power cut/internet outage and it will be back on soon.

:eek: Sounds a bit nasty, I've got some OS hardening to do soon - I've been putting it off for a while but this reminds me. Might add my spare firewall router behind my adsl router too, might take some tweaking but you can't have too many firewalls :)

My P4 w/HT has got hold of two biggies here, 37hrs gone, 22hrs to go.

I run Mcafee version 8 Corp on all my systems. Cant remember the last time I had a virus.

:toast:
See.. in my old place, i used to have all systems run through my main rig, then out to the world. Main rig was kinda like a fortress...
Now I have totally wireless network... but.. all systems point towards the laptop which is attached to the modem. I didn't have any antivirus on the crunchers.... simply because their internet activity is close to nonexistant... and certainly not 24/7.
However, Symantec Corporate Edition V10 is on them now. Thats virus I had was sending (or trying to send) millions of emails all around the place. Packet sniffed the NIC adapters all the time ... so i reviewed the CAP files after I got rid of the viruses... I was like :eek: Holy Schitt.

EDIT: All the emails had subject "Hi" and that was it...

Yeah Vscan 8 corp is good stuff, we use that for customers at work; very few problems in general. I used to install AVG & ZoneAlarm on all my machines, but I noticed BOINC thrashes the ZA (when it talks to localhost I guess :confused:) & I eventually dropped AVG too.

Having a network of bare-naked w2k boxes is a bit of a worry ;) This is why I'm making an IDS win2k box & thinking about throwing another firewall in front of my machines.

10-05-2006, 11:19 AM
Jimwah... Boinc is ok with my ZA? :confused: I just set up rules to allow its little play with itself ie localhost.

jimwah
10-06-2006, 12:11 AM
Yeah BOINC would run ok, but it just annoyed me having that green bar flashing up & down in the taskbar constantly iirc. The whole network needs downing, dusting out, & standardising here; it's just a case of getting round to it. I'll stick to hardware firewall's but I'm considering putting AV back on, just in case. The packet sniffer I'm setting up is running to some degree, on a box thats trying to run Primegrid, need to play with it some more to get the web interface & rules working 100%; fun & games :D

I just run thru a NAT firewall, minimal open ports. MCafee corp and thats it. I use firefox all the time so no probs with spyware and I onyl download from the Usenet . Cant help but feel most of the software out there is overkill.

I hit 250k :woot: And we've made some ground on the #1 spot in the last few days - some of my rigs will head back over to folding again for now, until I go on holiday next week anyway.

Reconnected 2 DX's in a closet (computer room/office is cleaned out for move) so heat is a problem. First DX dumps got me past TWB, other DX dumps (4 70hour WU's) should get my teabag in range of Jimwah.

After we get #1 in QMC, I'll switch some netburstĀ® over to SoB. Currently I only have a 3.2 lappy plodding along.

Congrats to jimwah for 250k, KB for 750k and SS for 500k! :thumbsup:

Maybe we should have a milestones thread too.

Finally got my 4400+ back to action. Now one of my 'hoes is missing connection, so bigger dumps coming every few days.

btw this post (http://qah.uni-muenster.de/forum_thread.php?id=287#12764) at QMC forum is pretty funny :D

Cheers mtzki - gratz to yourself as you reach the half million mark :) My output here's going to take a dive as I throw everything at folding for week before my holiday downtime - my work machine will stay on since it's been up & crunching QMC for ~80days non stop, it seems to like it so it can stay on here.

Nice crunchin, mtzki!

Unfortunately, I have everything running QMC that can run QMC as it doesnt support an OSX client. That, and my production has been hurt recently by my electrical problems. I'll have to try to bump up my clocks a bit. It wont stop you, but I'll give you a good fight. :)

Good to know that, i was wondering why you have so much force on wcg and Rosetta now that we are so close to #1. :toast:

A month to go with current speed, more if they change the point scheme. I wonder if we can keep the #1. Would be nice to crunch other projects too.

I haven't checked in on the stats for a while, good to see we're still closing in on the #1 spot - I've only got my battered P4 3.0 HT on QMC now :( Gratz also to twb, who's 'bagged me while I was away last week :toast:

Glad I'm pardoned, that sounds like a particularly nasty way to go :eek: I've gotta throw everything at fah just to get some decent output at the moment - I'm wracking my brain trying to think of borging opportunities here, if I get some more powa to spread around I'll be back... If you could just wait for me at 300k twb I'd appreciate it ;)

Ha! Not quite. I've pretty much stepped up again. However i dunno what he's doing with his new CD2, unless he's retired a XEON. I do know he lost one of the chips running SOB. It seems to push procs a little further than some other apps. Very similar to a Prime test in my opinion.
One theory in my head is that he's building up a dump with it to drop on my head soon.... but... theres a little something heading my way in the post... ;) Is he not doing a little D2OL aswell? Anyways i have a feeling there will be a great battle ahead.

Ya that one chip dieing on me has set me back a bit and I'm still waiting on the RAM for the CD2 system so no dumps from me. D2OL seems to stress the system even more than SOB does. The one system I put D2OL back on was crashing all the time so I put it back on SOB for now and it seems to be fine. I will have to put a different one on D2OL now.

Adding my Opty 266 to this to try and get you over the hump to #1
Has 2 hours to finish current WU on WCG and then will attach to QMC.
After 2 hours of trying it is attached!
Now what team was it I was joining? DPC correct?:rofl:
