Re: Joke Thread

Riding The Train A lady from the city and her travelling companion were riding the train through Vermont when she noticed some cows. "What a cute bunch of cows!" she remarked. "Not a bunch, herd", her friend replied. "Heard of what?" "Herd of cows." "Of course I've heard of cows." "No, a cow herd." ...

Re: Joke Thread

Long version: A farmer goes out to his field one morning only to find all of his cows frozen solid. As far as the eye can see are cows, motionless like statues. It had been a bitterly cold night, but he'd never thought anything like this would happen. The realisation of the situation then dawned on ...

HI Mark

Cool - shame it's only validating (and earning credit) on maybe 2/3rds of the tasks and wasting time and energy for nothing on the rest...but that's QuChem for you !!

Timbo gets to the 1m mark on WCG

Hi all, It's taken a while - in fact longer than I expected, but one milestone that I've now achieved in 2020 is to reach the 1 million mark on WCG. It's not a good earner in terms of credits per hour spent, but the overall "cause" is very worthwhile. So one can feel slightly smug at having contribu...

Good enough effort for a UBT side project :) Hi Damien Yup - not a bad effort overall, but clearly this Challenge was best suited to the higher end GPUs...my 3 or 4 generations old GTX970's were not up to doing anything except the basic tasks...so, that limited my contribution. But we made a good s...
