Finally taking the leap and voting with my feet. Enough of these WUs, with their wasted time, that reset far back from lack of enough check pointing. Oh, and lest we forget the lack of communication around here it looks like project admin left a long time ago.

If I was you, I'd get to 250K first. You're close enough that you might as well.

I'm going to crunch to 25K and then probably move on to Einstein or something else.

In this day and age of HDTV and widescreen, I think it would be a good idea to update your desktop backgrounds. It would be nice to have some new ones and also (for wide screen) 1680x1050. I think most people these days are getting wider screen monitors or at least enough to support the size.

Considering how increasing large the memory reqs of workunits can get I'd recommend having 2GB of memory per WU running.

I've got 2G on a dual core and I had to quit running 2 wu's at a time. I've got 1 CAMB and 1 enigma going at the same time and I'm still going to swap. I'm also maxing out FreeHAL, so that's part of it. I think going to swap is causing the work units to slow down a lot. One work unit I'm currently running is over 27 hours and that seems too long for me. I don't think 420 per wu is enough for the size of these and the length. I guess it's still more than claimed, but maybe it's not claiming enough either.

Anyways, I'm interested in things relating to space, so that's why I'm here mainly, but I'm also trying to keep my stats up.
