And we should be past the Vulture dudes within a couple of months.
Stormed past them today https://boincstats.com/en/stats/15/team/list/0/100/0 :D
Absolutely! 119th Now!

And there's more to come! Err..eventually! :lol:
October should see us gain a couple more places, and possibly lose one. But that'll be our last loss,amid several gains, before December.
We are holding our own [66th by RAC 8-) ], despite the unfortunate retiral of scole. I'm doing my bit, as are 15 other TSBT/WCG stalwarts. But most of the credit for keeping us in top 100 contention must go to davidBAM who most days is our biggest hitter. At this rate you should be top 10 in the team by Xmas! :o

You are right to worry about Mr Bill Lecky who has been the downfall of many an enthusiastic newbie, and sometimes a bright star, over the years. Just keep it real, monitored & sustainable & you’ll be fine.
And remember, for 3 seasons at least, if you live in Scotland (probably 4 seasons in Huntly:lol: ) having electrical appliances spewing out heat is a good thing, reducing the need for other sources of heating.

Coal fire and stupid amounts of lecky for puters get me through the winter.

Probably Byteball.org, nearly seven million credits a day!

Just don't go doing any "blackmailing" Alez!

I'm going to run WCG for a while. I'm now officially a BOINC whore and my pimp is Byteball.

After we finish the Thor challenge which runs from the 22nd to 29th I'll join you guys for a while. I might be able to give you a slight bump :D Unfortunately, since my user name is linked to Byteball I won't be able to change it. So TSBT's rolls will be contaminated with Bryan @ SUSA :whistle:

Anyone can get access to to rebels forum (seti.usa). Just need to confirm when to dump the WCG wus for the Thor challenge. Need a GMT hour.

You can dump anytime now Carlos. I dropped mine 12 hours ago :-)

A damn shame I couldn't have dropped for TSBT - 10 day bunker worth 5M credits. Oh well, after the 29th I'll give you guys a hand.

BTW, the SUSA boards are down just like Free-DC. BOK is out-of-town but he should be home later today so things should return to normal.

The 1st days stats will appear at about 0100 UTC tonight and then at that time through the 29th. Go to your account on WCG, click on "My Team" and towards the bottom you will see the link to the challenge stats.

Okay folks, OFF YOUR BUTTS. Time to hit WCG :lol:

BTW, with the exception of MIPs ALL other apps run about 75% faster using LInux.

The order of payout:

OET - going away in a few days
Zika - pays a little better than SCC
SCC - pays a little less that Zika
MIPs - way down / pays poorly

NOTE: my credits will be down a little today but should return to normal tomorrow. I was doing some benchmarking/optimization on the new computer so it was not on WCG.

WCG is my go-to project so this is good news as I switched back at end of the Sprint. All on Linux too. I'll untick MIPs based on your info though, thanks :D :D

ETA : Wowsers - how many cores have you got to be doing 360K per day :notworthy: :notworthy:

I've got a few :lol: 360k - that's what I was saying, my numbers are down. They should improve by tomorrow at least while OET continues. I don't know how far down it'll go when I have to switch to Zika but I'm guessing a drop of maybe 30% (pure guess).

We'll jump 2 positions tomorrow - 118th. 3M to position 117. No fast movers behind us at least in the 100-200 positions. Well, there is 1 team 6M behind doing a little under 500k/day.

Indeed, 118th Now!
It’s great having you onboard Bryan.
We’ve been making steady progress over the course of the year but your presence has already helped things along a big bit.
I’ve got all my working cores on WCG including 64 threads on my latest Threadripper 2990WX. Oh yes! I reckon it possibly doubles my WCG capacity and I’d hope to be nudging 6 figures per day once it’s all running full out.
Full steam ahead!
