Re: Fancy owning an island?

Hi Tim, Fancy being the team founder? :D HI Mark I have no issue with you retaining foundership. My only concern in the past has been with some of the other projects, where the original founder has stopped crunching and then there is a risk that someone from outside the team, could make a "founders...

Re: Fancy owning an island?

Hi Mark Thanks for the heads-up :-) I've joined the project and the Team. First batch of tasks claimed to take over 18 DAYS each :-(. So, will have to see how this goes. Edit: At least the task deadline is quite long - basically about 30 days...so plenty of time to complete, and hopefully they can b...

You been having a nostalgia trip through the stats, Tim? Does our 7% active members reflect the global trend these days?

Hiya

Nice farm !!!!!

And so compact too...

How are you powering these? One big PSU with multiple USB ports delivering the juice ? Or lots of "wall warts" ;-) ?

Which project(s) are you running on them?

Re: Too hot to crunch?

Hi Jeffers Of late, I've actually stopped my GPU crunching and committing to 100% CPU crunching. This still allows lots of processing but far reduces the heat output from my small number of PCs.
