is it weird that a teammate doesn't know his teammate's gears and an opponent kinda know?I would too, but Stephan is a little "private" so I just read what he posts. My 1000 cores are in my sig, no surprise there. But I can't touch him. I should say, he has taught me a few things, that I only utilized to about 1/10 of what I could have in this contest, so maybe next time I can come up to bat.
This is true in a literal sense, but does not give the whole picture. :-PStefan has 2x of 7452 and a few (i'll let you guys guess) xeon V4s.
We never expected to win the Thor Challenge, so that made our year already.Only me can predict what xii5ku will do and still got beat
P3D just got a taste of it ... lolz
I don't mind to get the credit though ... haha
mehhh, that ain't right. TaaT deserved this win. Now let's see how P3D can cope with it
And I have NOT said anything about you didn't built or owned the computers. I've just said you had 2x Epycs and some Xeon.This is true in a literal sense, but does not give the whole picture. :-P
I am exclusively using computers which I built myself, and am operating at home at German household electricity rate. As noted in this thread, I ran WCG for 17 days, not just 7. I'll write some more later today.
OI knew all of that... What I don't know is what he may not have told us. And, as I said, he taught me things, but too late to perform like he did. He is a master at this.is it weird that a teammate doesn't know his teammate's gears and an opponent kinda know?
Stefan has 2x of 7452 and a few (i'll let you guys guess) xeon V4s.
More Gears is good, but if you don't know how to maximize them (or if you know but not willing to) then it's going to be in this situation.
While I may sound like a long time cruncher, actually I was, but i was off Grid for about 7 years before the come back in 2017. or maybe 16' ... beat me i can't remember sheit now lolz. Anyways, all i'm trying to say is thru out the crunching experiences, I've enjoyed going against xii5ku the most. We're not friends, we're not enemies, we don't even talk to each other. But every time a competition came up, I've always seek out to see what's he's doing. He may doesn't have much gears, but his timing and knowledges can do some real damages. So it's not always about the gears, it's about sharing your knowlegdes. PPL take it or not, that's on them ... we did what we can. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to shared something I learned and it turned out my team already knew about it. Embarrassing? Sure, but wtf. Just treat it like a double post... np.
Oh, $800 a month electric bill ? How did you know thats what I pay ? And forget paying a cloud, I am my own cloud....And I have NOT said anything about you didn't built or owned the computers. I've just said you had 2x Epycs and some Xeon.
Just like you, and as many others, I built my own stuffs. I've got accused of renting or using free credit shiet, but i just laughed. "Yah, try to pay 800/month electric bill then talk to me about cloud." just my thoughts ... wasn't any quote or anything.
The estimate above was from an opponent's perspective. I could be wrong. Hell, i'd be a millionaire if I can predict everything right.
Before I discovered Distributed Computing as a hobby, I had two dual-processor computers with Xeon E5-2690 v4. I bought and built them myself and used them occasionally for simulations in my job. Such simulations were ran on an Ethernet cluster of office PCs before. Consolidation of this workload onto the SMP machines made these simulations quite a bit faster.I am doing some forum research... Can we get a hit at the overall "Stephan/xii5ku " hardware? It looks a bit crazy if it is not elsewhere used for commercial production of some kind!
I would just like a peak behind the curtain!
Even though your post may mainly be directed at Stefan, I hope you will not mind my reply.I have to agree about what Z said about bunkering, i can' just turn off my network anymore so i have to manually set every system. Plus i never paid much attention to wu's Just grab what i can and go, but i was left too many times with a lot left over. This time i bunkered WCK just because I am Pushing Hard On OP and want to get to at least 50m before years end and still help my team.
So Z showed me a few times how it's done, pretty simple but i undershot it and was just sitting with a lot of cores doing nothing. But i felt good that I did not overcommit. I think my old ways were not helpful to the projects, teams and our competition so that is why i am trying to be a better cruncher, isay more responsible, in every way.
You have built up respect Creds with me over time and I really just wanted to stop in and say Happy ThanksGiving to everyone in the US and to the global pop, Just have a great day or night.
Top Notch Guys.
