I started supporting DC projects in 2013 and had a break for the few years after the second GPU in my XPS laptop died which I attributed (for both) to overheating when running Boinc tasks.
This XPS is long since gone and now with my current PC I found TThrottle to manage the GPU and CPU temps. So much more happier now that I believe my hardware is less likely to be destroyed.
Coming back to Boinc project support after a few years away it seems the Boinc teams are active with users crunching but the forums have very little activity.
For me, being part of a team is not just moving rocks from A to B but and more importantly conversing with others in the team. Maybe this is not the same for all of you but for me I feel a team should be more about being part of a community that is working together towards a common goal. The team forums I tried to join up to now required an admin permission. Well lets say, I am still waiting for admin responses.
I see now Team Anand Tech has a lot more to offer than just the DC part for Boinc or other DC projects.
Before I switch teams I wanted to "feel the water" and see how interactive this DC forum is.
Anyway, looking forward to tomorrow.
Today was a new adventure and tomorrow offers so many more possibilities
