@Megacruncher - you really don't need to be a Linux whizkid to run BOINC. BOINC is BOINC whether you are on Linux or Windoze, they work exactly the same. The only difference is where the files are stored. /var/lib/boinc-client vs c:/program data/boinc. Other than that they operate the same, app_config, app_info, cc_config etc are all the same. In fact you can copy them from your Windows installation and use them in Linux.

If you setup your machines as dual boot then you can have the best of both worlds. Run them under Windows when that is needed or run them under Linux when that is more efficient.

Not only do I remember the VHS vs Betamax fight I remember 8 track tapes vs cassettes :lol:

8-track continuous loop audio cartridges were a masterful piece of engineering. Shame it took something half the size of a VHS tape to hold 45mins of music :lol:

Hurrah for us!
This equals our best ever placing.
Just 13 million to go until 98th. Then the gains will come thick & fast.

Bunkering will distort our daily returns between now and Hogmanay but I am hopeful that we will be off the top of this table by the New Year :handgestures-fingerscrossed:

Well TSBT is currently 94th and 1 update from 93rd. In 3 days then try on 91st for size ... bet it fits!

Then it's table time.

At the end of the challenge we should be sitting within spitting distance of 90th. At that point I'm going to find something else to run :lol:

Yeah, I agree, there are other projects out there that we could concentrate on for awhile to either increase your own credit points or improve the Teams position or get some more hours on Wprop

I need 4.5 days to get the Zika badge I'm hunting and that will be that for WCG. At least until the new projects come out and then I'll have to get those badges :lol:

Personally, I’m more than happy to settle for us ending the year as 91st! :-)
This far exceeds my ambitions for 2018!
We are now secure in the top 100 for WCG & everything else.
Rejoice!

Happy New Year too Megacruncher!

I still need 3 days to get my 100 year Zika badge so we will be close to 90th or have it when I wrap it up. I will definitely pull off of WCG the second I hit my goal :lol:

Hi there Mega - good to see you back

As far as WCG goes, I will be happy to keep most of my cores busy on there while you mercenaries go off hunting badges :lol: I think the rest of the TSBT team should be able to largely sustain our #91 position (with one or two possible exceptions; Fairleigh Dickinson University, 5by14). We'll soon holler if we need the cavalry

Yeah, Happy New Year Willie, we missed you but noted that your machines were still working in the background.

Thanks guys.
No reason to switch the machines off even if I couldn’t contribute to the Xmas banter.
