    Set it to low priority & everything should be fine. Also would you happen to be using a firewall &/or a proxy server ?

    Yea, the client has been unable to connect for me also sometimes...

    I tried loading it on Novell, didn't like my yahoo e-mail address... I just unloaded it and loaded again and it was fine...

    I use Zone Alarm at home and I ok'd the client.



    This could be my problem here at work. When you reloaded it did you use yer yahoo email again?

    I used the same e-mail address, I have no idea why it worked the second time but not first...

    How about shooting for 20K WUs for Easter ? Who's up for the challenge ? :D

    I have a few more machines (my fastest ones) that I could put up for the effort :)

    I could've put up one or two more, but I just got my electricity bill and it was big, so that isn't an option alas.

    But 20k by easter would be a good goal!

    I'm gonna try to get some machines at work on the team.

    How's the SETI worm coming along Papeh ? ;)

    Well, Mict should overtake me during this day, since it's only 8 WU's that's seperating us now.

    Congrats Mict, even though you had to use several computers to overtake my single ;) :D

    Come on people, we've reached 15K but if we are to reach 20K for Easter we're gonna have to add machines or start overclocking like there's no tomorrow.:D

    err, maybe I missed the boat when it first arrived, but has anybody noticed that we now have 505 CPU's in the team @ 959 MHz????, with a processing power of 74.47 Gflops! Cool:D

    Nice one guys.

    I put myself onto the team. I have a little over 5500 right now, adding about 30 a day. I will put more machines up once I move to CANADIA.

    Cool & Welcome onboard!

    Now we're just 4278 WU's away from 25k :)

    25000 - 21897 = 3103

    Back to Math class MrG !!! :knock:

    Looks like my k6-2 cranks out 1 unit every 36 hours or so. Thats so bad I don't even know if its worth keeping on. A P2 300 does it in about half that time.

    I keep my K6-2 on it because it would be idling anyways. & it helps for total CPU time.:D

    LoL!

    I missed with 1k. (We were at 21722 when I posted the prev message)

    It's been several years (around 9 if I recall correctly) since I was good at math, so I don't worry about it too much...

    But I guess you're right I'll have to learn a bit more if I'm ever to figure out coding.

    We're slowing down here..

    Didou has become inactive, Neo-Fenix and Skeletal Dragon has left the building, and I've changed Barton 2600+ back to a dual-Celeron.

    :blackeye:

    I've bumped my average from 3.x to 5.x a day :) But that doesnt' quite make up for Didou passing out on us.

    I could get it higher if I asked my dad and sister to run it, but I won't ask them because they are on laptops. (*Note: My mom is already running it on her desktop).

    I took my machines down for some maintenance & haven't got to reinstalling seti back ( & I'd rather not run it at work anymore ). I'll be back in full production very soon but I think we might miss the 25K mark before Easter.:(

    We have 10 days to complete almost 1400 work units. That's 140 WU/day - and we are currently averaging 176 WU/day. I think we're gonna make it if we don't slow down now. I had accidentally stopped SETI on a couple of my machines for a couple days - but I've fixed that. I still haven't brought it back up on my Dual Mac though. I'm still busy working on that machine.
