    Saw the latest numbers...it will be a dead heat between Team China, us, Russia and Keep the fire alive!

    All within 600K points of each other.

    Just got the 2500k into the game :)

    That pretty much taps me out though, the wife frowns on using our thubans to super heat the office!

    Definitely the more crunchers the better - we dont need to rely on so much individual firepower if we have the numbers. Even if folks only get one run in, that is super helpful.

    The race thread at PrimeGrid is interesting. http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=4584&nowrap=true#59100

    Three of the top five crunchers are running windows 8 and were running up huge numbers of race points with just a single computer each. Their WUs will not be validated but that will take time. Two of the crunchers do not have a team affiliation but one is from Duke University. Two of the three did not know what was going on since they were away for the weekend. All three were running boinc version 7.0.28 and their results were 3.xx seconds run time and 0.00 seconds CPU time. All WUs were scored as pending validation or validation inconclusive so they received race points for each WU. What that means is most of us will go up in the rankings by 3 positions and the TeAm will go up one position. Duke will drop below us by the time all WUs are validated.

    I'm actually running windows 8 pro (64-bit) on my 3930K with boinc version 7.0.36 and a lot of WUs are being validated. Others are using win 8 with no problems either.

    For those of you who don't like the tablet start up screen on win 8 and would like to see a desktop with a classic start menu, check out this app. Works great for me. :)

    how about some recruiting at the CPU sub forum?

    Maybe we can get a little push these last few days.
    Thoughts?

    I was originally optimistic that I would get power back in time to get my home crunchers into the race, but still nothing so far. And with a noreaster headed this way Wednesday, it looks like power won't be back until this weekend at the earliest (if then even). :( I've got my office PC crunching away, but that really looks like it for me.

    I'm guessing from China? :p *rimshot*
    Terrible, I know. ;)

    Thanks for the stats, PB.

    OH CRAP.

    Correlizer just got more work and it took over some of my crunchers since they were ready and waiting for Correlizer as a high priority project. Something to look out for if you have correlizer added to your crunchers.

    And, oh yeah, Correlizer has work! :D

    Thanks, Kiska!

    If you want to line up the numbers better, you could use the "Courier New" font, which is available in the "advanced" editor - see button below. There are quite a few advanced formatting options around ...

    I am down to 1 computer crunching. Missed the last race completely. Hopefully my 1 pc can turn in 64-70 wu before the end of the race.

    Thanks! Please check your preferences as you're crunching a lot WUs which do not count for credit in the challenge.

    Please see the first post in this thread to setup your preferences.
    You probably want to abort all non 321 Prime Search WUs after the changes.

    Thanks again!

    So far as I can tell, everything is set up properly. Perhaps some of the other WU's were submitted because I installed BOINC/Primegrid before changing my preferences, and it finished those workunits first?
