how many days have you run X projects? (e.g. it's been 4316 days since i joined WCG, and its ran...)

so i joined WCG Oct 18, 2006 it seems.

i'd started to calculate the ranges that i'd not run it (a couple times during the hottest couple of months during the summer), when i realized it kept track what days you returned results.

so of 4,316 days it's been since my join date, i've run it 1,625 days (it feels like more)... almost 4.5 years. in that time, i've done 11,596 CPU days, or 31y281d. and 36m WCG.org points

(man, what i wouldn't give for a 2S x 32C64T Epyc...)

anyone else have interesting/notable personal stats?

i'm more curious about how many days straight/in total people have been running. CPU time would be an interesting ratio to that

but yeah, while i DID do a little on TA (seventeen or bust?, f@h?), i've mainly been on AMD Users for BOINC projects

Markfw has been Folding non-stop on at least one machine for 13 years straight. GLeeM has probably been running something, for just as long, minus vacations. 5 years or so straight for myself, many others run full time 24/7 here as well, for years on end. Multiple machines as well.

Well, I have been running SETI since December 2, 2001 on at least one machine 24/7, except planned or unplanned downtime and some vacations, to a total of 6098 days - vacations (100 days, I keep the computers running for all vacations shorter than 2 weeks) - 11.5 days (planned or unplanned down time) = more than 5970 days.
This has resulted in 50 382 727 BOINC/credits + 15 529 SETI-classic WUs (=76 594 CPU-hours).

WCG I have run for 3118 days (=8.5 years) but not every day, since i have joined that project October 2, 2006.

10 days ago (Aug 3rd) marked my 1st year on DCing. Since then I regularly swithed between SETI, Milkyway, Einstein, Climate Prediction, and LHC. Unless there's some challenge coming up, I only run DC projects at night until morning because it's quite warm and dusty down here.

Actually I started in 1999, but the 24/7 thing started in 2001 or so. 2002 on I had a farm of 10-20 machines 24/7/365, even when I went to Europe for a month in 2009. So 16-19 years.

Free DC says I started on : Mon, 14 Dec 09 22:41:51 -0500. My first project was Einstein, until I decided what next.

However, I'm flakey very few things have I done for months at a time. Early on when there were so few GPU tasks. The *1* GPU would float around to whomever was up.

All those weeks or days and occasionlly months have added up on some projects.

I've been running SETI on/off since 1999, although not so much in recent years as I lost my last 2 remote crunchers (my son's & my dad's) due to some change SETI made a few years ago which caused system lag, so they killed SETI :(, understandably. Anyway, I have been running it on my main rig recently (temperatures allowing).
I've also ran DPAD, F@H, Einstein, Milkyway, Rosetta, Asteroids, Skynet, & LHC over that time (& possibly others I've forgotten about!).
I think I started running 24/7 in 2000.

I would have no idea how I would collate all those stats ;), where do you find them?

That thread, don't you mean 12-13 yrs? ;)
