    When I started to be a regular here @ DC AnandTech some years ago ;) most of the milestones were celebrated and some congrats-thread had 20 - 40 replies. Milestones were seen as a sign of dedication, computer savvy, stubborness and stick-to-it-iveness. Some of that has been lost, but not all. ;)
    In this thread I would like all those who pass milestones to post their milestones. If someone sees a team mate passing a milestone he/she can post here too. All of those, who want to voice their congratulations can do so here. :cool:
    Spacehead's thread also offers milestones, but there are very few congrats there. In the Folding@Home thread are milestones too. There are more congrats there ... :whiste:
    Still, we do not have any regular congrats thread with all the milestones collected in one place....

    In this way one does not have to feel embarrased to start a self-conratulatory thread ... :oops:

    :thumbsup:

    So let us get off to a good start ;)

    I have passed quite a few milestones today:
    Boinc combined: ____ 40 000 000
    Collatz Conjecture: _ 8 000 000
    SIMAP: ______________ 1 600 000


    I feel quite happy about that ... :D and about the milestones I passed past week: PrimeGrid and CPDN (2 millions each).

    I'll do my best do crunch even more!

    As someone new to DC. it has been a bit of a trial just to learn some of the lingo in the threads.:)

    Seems like i feel a bit like an outcast, just joining the team two weeks ago or so.

    Posting here i felt like the new replacements in the HBO series Band of Brothers. No one wanted to learn your name, because odd's are you will not be here long.

    Well maybe theres good reason for that?...i don't know.

    If some of you more experanced guys replyed to some of the new people's posts, even if your answer was a guess, it at least would be an educated guess.

    In making the choice on what team to join, well it was not easy. All i knew was i wanted to join a team, not just a group of individuals ( if you know what i mean)

    The learning curve can be a bit steep, what the best way is to gain points if thats your bag, or if your doing it for the sicence.

    I started this, just to see how my OC held up at full load.

    I read the news story about the sucess Einestine@home had, and i wanted to help as well.

    But i can see where this can be a bit addicting.:)

    I joined the Prime challange, to help the team, and shut down Einestine for the two days. for starting almost 20 hours late, i was quite proud of my finish of 102, and helping the team to a one better spot.

    I was sad to see that i was one place from the bonus points tho...LOL

    maybe a bit more involvement on the boards here, can work out to more of the team helping in the next challange?

    Just my thoughts guys, nothing personal.

    I agree - and that is why I started this thread. A bit more involvement, a bit more support for those who crunch, not only those with less experience, but also to those more jaded ...
    The learning curve is steep.
    OTOH: here the people are friendlier than in many other places - very little if any flaming, very few personal attacs, mostly friendely answers.
    OTOH: there is much less activity here than it was before. This place has changed a lot since 2003 - 2004: many are now out of college or university, working, have kids, some are in the 50:ies - 60:ies with responsability and not too mauch time.

    And to encourage people to post and to support is the main reason to have this thread.

    Yep, out of college in 2004 and have a couple of kids now. Hit some real life milestones along the way to 2010 for sure.

    In Folding@Home I hit 6M recently and I'm trying for 7M by the year's end. I'll have contributed over 3M points this year if I make those goals.

    Well me posting was not an issue.
    Getting an responce from someone was my concern.

    I finished up all the Big primegrid PSP LLR files yesterday, and i'm back to Einstine again. get my daily avg. back up again.

    I wanted to run 12 at a time on my big machine before the race this Sept. 24. Just to see how it did, time it took, credit it was worth.

    8 are still pending credit
    3 have been credited, (8662.41 credit total for the 3)
    Two of them were worth 3000.00 credits, one was 2662.41?
    1 was errored out
    took about 75.5 hours per task.

    i see why this challange/race is going to be two weeks long.

    Sometimes the error is at the project.

    Go to your account at the project, select tasks, and at the top- select error.

    Select the leftmost column of the task to see the error code.

    Or, select the second from the left column to see how many times the task has been issued.

    Over Clocked?, Yes
    Every computer in the house is except for the HTPC .....:)
    The big box is a i7 980x @4.0 and thats the one i tried it on.

    the other big box is a i7 920 @3.4
    if i had a better heat sink, this will run at 4.0 also. but it gets too hot for my taste at that clock with the stock heat sink that came from the 980x box.

    Guess i need another Scythe SCMG-2000 Mugen 2 like i have on the 980x to get the job done. i have it set up with push/pull fans.

    both are very stable now at these settings tho.

    I lost power while doing them (the WU's), i guess i'm lucky all of them are not errored out.

    Window AC and both computers above running on the same 15 amp circuit....Oop's!

    right now, the AC is more important, so it's running as is the 980x.
    cool weather will return to northern lower Michigan soon tho.

    Then i can bring the 920 back on line. If i don't end up selling it.
