    create an cc_config.xml file and place in ProgramData/Boinc directory and restart boinc.

    The one below will result in no gpu use.

    Lots of other options here: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration

    <cc_config>
    <options>
    <no_gpus>1</no_gpus>
    </options>
    </cc_config>

    Damn CPU tasks won't complete on time but I will try to get them to finish, by keeping the laptop on all the time instead of hibernating it. Anyway GPU tasks should have a better chance of completing on the 9300M GS and the GTX 525M.

    Unfortunately, I am not getting any work units. So, I guess I'm done.

    Awesome job all!

    conversation earlier today:

    wife: what do you want for xmas?
    me: well, I'd like to get a new video card but it's kind of expensive
    wife: how much?
    me: about $300..but it's uses a lot less power than the old one (GTX295).
    wife: ok, sure. It would be nice to have a lower power bill.
    me: thanks!! I'll go to microcenter and pick it up!
    wife: Hi, did you get the new video card?
    me: Yes! is it ok to install it now and wrap the empty box?
    wife: Yeah I guess that would be ok..

    New GTX660Ti in the race! 1 WU/12 minutes.:p

    I didn't install the GTX295 on a different machine. My only option is my 2600K which running SMP FAH WUs and that machine has a 4850 on it. It's a bit of a hassle to remove ATI drivers and install nvidia on linux. Plus, running PrimeGrid would totally kill the FAH SMP ppd on that machine.

    Holy cow :eek: (no pun intended), that's impressive. I can only imagine how many GPUs it took to accomplish that.

    Looks like we're in the top 10 overall for the year! Way to go TeAm! :awe:
    Edit: That doesn't include this race. So I'm not sure where we are yet.

    So we made only 16th place this race. Don't worry - it's not the end of the world. :sneaky:

    Although this might be a sign of the apocalypse! :eek:
