    I'm from UK too although a few miles from MK. All i remember of Milton Keynes was a lot of graffiti and getting threatened from the "keynes krew"

    UCmajewski: I'm onboard for being part of that team with all the power of my 3 rigs , probably suit me as i get board doing the same project for a long stint (apart from DIMES). I'll just crunch one WU for SETi as i agree that it is a pointless project, then I will swap to SOB. I'll crunch the WU to get the XS name on the board. My stats sig is getting nicely fattened out now though.

    MK is a dump in my view, all the London overspill scumbags from the 60s as it was built as a new town. Really easy to get around though because of the grid system. Its rough as you like at night though in the clubs, I remember each time I had a night out there I would always see someone getting bottled on either the dance floor or the bar. Didnt bother me at the time as I was always really drunk......lol

    Hey, that's my ex-home-base you're talking about C'mon, MK isn't that rough...(well most of it isn't anyway lol)

    I'd be up for going for a ... as long as you're buying

    Cool Cool Cool ..... if we can figure out another physical science project to get into that would be great as well. As far as mathematics goes this project http://www.rieselsieve.com/ seems like one to we can move up in as well. Any team would be a move up as far as the vault standings is concerned.

    With any BOINC project you can attach more projects and throttle them to use less CPU power. I think we have ran out of majestic 12 / dimes / red library projects that use no cpu power. I installed moneybee and it uses signifcant resources.

    odd, MJ12 is back to using like zero CPU now (though 45 megs of ram still). *shrug*
    i wish i had some more firepower to bring to the table... so many different cpu-intensive tasks i'd like to do, so few good for borging...

    hey UCmajewski how about uFluids@Home for the other physics team? the cows are at number 2 so it gives us a chance to roast them again and it looks like it would be fairly easy to fly up the ranks.

    or Einstein@home. We wouldn't get high in the ranks but a quick run would score some easy points. UFluids might be more fun though as we would get some more recognition. I need more rigs now as each of mine is running a different project and they all have dimes and that Red library thing.

    P.S. for SOB do you need a password to join XtremeSystems? as it keeps asking for one.

    Jose was having that issue; look around in the R@H forum and see if anyone figured it out.

    yeah, we all need more rigs... or at least more ram. Speaking of RAM, i nabbed 15 sticks of what i think is 16-32 megs of PC66-PC133 today and 2 socket 370 celeries. anyone have any thoughts on uses for this stuff?


    i wish i had more machines, or that more of these projects were easier to borg with. right now i've got 7+ rigs running F@H simply because it takes 30 seconds to borg with and they'll never know its there.

    Al running same settings, why is it my main rig keeps saying that trojan downloader has been found, I know its getting it from majestic but why wouldnt others of my pcs detect them as well?

    We got the DPC yesterday, but they have ramped today. We are 31 st overall with the ninth highest production ...... with 3 or 4 more members would be up there in the production column.

    I think as long as the client is running you get 240,000 a day as my clients been running at "0" up and down for the last 2 hours and i still get credited with an exact 10,000 points an hour. So any extra members would make a noticeable difference.

    Maybe someone could nicely ask Jeff too run this on weekends when he turns down DIMES?

    I noticed that 91,000 + 30,000 updates I'm not so keen on it because bandwidth is the restriction and my 2mb just wont cut it. Although it is good incase vm's go down atleast i know the bandwidth aint going to waste.

    I joined! Bit earlier than I thought I would, as I managed to talk someone through setting up remote access on my workstation.

    Damn though...this thing is pwning my connection! Nearly 2gb downloaded in 3.5hrs

    19+ gigs since i started...
    i knew this 4+ M down would be useful someday, even if the 384K up never will be!
