    Maybe I can convince them that instead of having all of these PCs sitting idle at night, we can use them to find alien civilizations.
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    Lol, something good to be beaten at, I wouldn't complain.

    FYI from what I understand, the 'recent average credit' category is essentially an average daily output, _after_ a month or so - with some sort of logarithmic decay to give less weight to older workunits.

    I think that is called the 'marketing department', lol.

    All I can say is that I'm five years with this company and second only to the general manager, also 6'6" and about 300lbs and still got the stink eye when i asked about my work station. So I'm pretty sure that this is the full extent of the company's contribution.

    Btw, congrats to badtzicool & millguy for their 'bronze' badges (top 25% individual productivity), plus now the CPF team has that badge as well.

    I have no hope for an individual 'silver' as I can see my average credit leveling off, but hoping that CPF can get to top-5% perhaps.

    Edit: also just wanted to celebrate what will be my last hour or so re: having the #1 spot for 'avg credit'; millguy will have it tomorrow for sure.

    After reading my past posts I feel that I might have left the impression of a individual competition within the group. If anyone felt that my poking fun was inappropriate I apologize because that wasn't my intention. I too want the Team to attain the top 5%. So every work unit counts. Being limited by the equipment at my disposal, I'm grateful for the heavy hitters among us pushing the team forward. Whether or not a signal is found will be a celebration for another day, in the mean time a little friendly team competition should keep it interesting.

    Thanks Kestrel. And thank you for starting this team. Wish I had seen it sooner.
    Congrats to you for holding that spot! Definitely didn't come here to compete within the team. Just throwing what I have available at it for Team CPF!

    Nothing to worry about; good-natured individual competition makes it even more fun.

    I think that's part of the fun. Friendly competition never did anyone no harm.

    I've managed to commandeer a little used system for a short time thinking I might get a little extra work done. Turns out this thing rocks. I know I have it for the weekend after that we'll see.

    I'm just running it when I can. I don't leave any work comps on over the weekend (I'm the boss there). For the first week or so I didn't check my power settings so it would shut down after a couple hours. Happy to contribute at any level
    Have torch, will travel.

    Thanks, I was pleasantly surprised by it. I'm one of only two people overseeing this system at this time so maybe it will be available for a while.

    Always happy to see new members.

    Some interesting stats can be seen at the below link: (with cool graphs too)
    http://www.allprojectstats.com/showt...t=15&id=159664
    • 73rd percentile for total credits (team) - and still climbing rapidly
    • 99th percentile for productivity (recent average credit) - position 615 out of 63,500+ registered teams

    The 'silver' (or even 'gold') team badges should be pending by now.

    The software is configurable to cache 10+ days of workunits if desired, so a computer with only limited connectivity can still be a substantial contributor.

    615 out 63,500+, I say we skip that old silver and go straight to the gold.

    My old little laptop sure does heat up - needs a cryos cooling bezel - when running boinc

    I should probably nerf it to 80% cpu if I leave it going overnight. It's a 2010 MBP with a core duo so it's hella slow.

    Merely two days later, I see that we're now #514 out of 63,500+ teams for output - pretty good if you ask me.

    I have to keep my 'fast' laptop (probably about the speed of your 'hella slow one' lol) propped up to improve its airflow, but the serious heat comes from my 8-core android.
    It has to throttle down frequently to keep the processors down @ 85C, so when I'm home I have it sitting on the lid of my chest freezer for maximum output.

    -----------

    Other misc developments; Nitroz has really picked up the pace, and millguy could actually form his own team and beat all of the rest of us on output - glad he's on our side, lol.

    I'm running it on my phone now after you posted about being able to do that. Only running two cores to keep it cool. When did we get the silver badge? Cool!!!

    Good point on the silver team badge - it certainly wasn't there when I posted ~45 minutes ago.
    I'm thinking there's a lag though, as we're most definitely within the 99th percentile now (i.e. gold).

    Even leaving my laptop going at 90% CPU for 24hrs it's not doing much haha but it's fun to participate!
    I'll keep it up on off days for sure.
    Go team!

    Well, Nitroz must be burning High Test because he's definitely hauling the load. He might be sampling some of millguys NASA fuel!!
