No!

Having problems installing that new stick of memory? Found some great software or having issues with something? Or maybe want to chat about your PlayStation, X-Box, Nintendo, Sega, even your old Spectrum 48k....! Or maybe something you want to sell or acquire (computing related of course!). Let us know here...

Sadly, My laptop is no longer gonna be crunching 24/7 :( , but i will have it on as much as possible, and investigate an ASIC to make up for lost credits! :)

Hi Chris,

Shame about that but BOINC is supposed to be spare cycles anyway.

Good luck with getting an ASIC but even without one, every credit counts.

Mark.

Hi Chris,

That's a shame...but you gotta do, what you gotta do.

The thing about ASIC's is that they can earn far more credits than a CPU can....so, in a credit race, an ASIC is the way to go.

On the other hand, BOINC is about using your spare CPU cycles to help many and various projects...and in fact while my ASIC'S are hard at work on BU, the CPU's and GPU's are doing work on other BOINC projects.

So, when you can do some crunching and you have got an ASIC you can do double the workload, with the ASIC on BU and your CPU on something less intensive, such as Convector, WUProp etc.

regards
Tim

Very true, Mark and Tim, but I would love to catch up to everyone in the credit race asap, so I will just get an ASIC whenever I can!

thanks for the advice :D

You're in 943th place out of 4,518 team members, ie in the top 20.87%, improved by 440 places in the last week and by 15 places in the last day :)

Another day like yesterday and you go up another 11 places :D

;) Don't be offended - Woodles - I just wanted to see it for myself, so I could see my progress.  :oops:

I wasn't really Chris :)

You've gone up six places in the past eight hours :D

Of course, your progress will slow down as you get higher up the table but you're heading in the right direction.
