Mist >>> Site
Same as the five letter one, start from where the previous one finished ("Hazy") and end up at the target ("Mist")

It takes a bit of getting used to :)

Dizzy >>> Ditzy

won't be too many after that i think
Sorry Neil, DIZZY is the target, you have to start from PRUNE.

So Prune >>> Prude for example.

( I had to check up on Nupes, never heard it before) Really? You've lived a sheltered life :D Target: Prune Nupes>>> PRUNE New target: Dizzy (That should be fun!) Sadly I have to refer you back to the first post of the thread: As this version will likely be harder at times to reach the target there...

Hi Tim, Fancy being the team founder? :D The tasks won't complete, they're not tasks as such, just a mechanism for running the real work on the server and yes, they will restart at 0% but that doesn't matter, they don't track actual progress anyway, just the proportion of time that they've been runn...

Re: Too hot to crunch?

Hi Jeff, It has been getting a bit toasty :) For me it's been a case of selecting projects which don't stress the PC so much and/or limiting the number of cores that run the more demanding workunits.
