I still get a blank screen when I try to use the screensaver :( I guess it must be my ATI graphics card.

Well, sorry guys but I'm gonna have to cut back my participation. The client seems to be slowing my servers down so I'm just gonna run it at night now. I'll still run it as long as I can get away with it though! Just don't tell my boss!!

I've had to take my main Einstein @ home computer down for a while. It's been overheating like crazy when I run Einstein @ home! Luckily I still have it at work.

Oh, and just an update that there is a new version of BOINC available at http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/ just go to "Download BOINC" and choose version 4.45. It's got some great new features!

To be honest, it's probably a better idea to do Einstein @ Home, that way we can advance our own science and either find them ourselves, or make them feel comfortable with contacting us. Just my opinion. :)

I'm on the CloudyNights SETI@Home team, already. Not sure if I want to take any processing power away from that. :)

I'll look into joining, I need to adress some stability issues, my system is overclocked, and it's summer, so I might have to let it run while not overclocked so it won't crash. Also It's been a while since I cleaned out all the dust in my PC, so that would probably help.

I just got a faster computer for work and am back up and processing! My average has jumped from 6 something to over 30! :)

My home computer continues to have problems with heat. I will keep everyone updated!

I signed up to Einstein@ home and climateprediction.net about a month ago, but I've had Einstein on pause for most of that time so the climateprediction.net can run. I decided to detach from the climate thing. That one still projects 2,440 hours to completion. My PC could end up crashing long before that. Einstein completes a cycle in 20 hours on average.

Einstein@ home total credits: 261.89

I'm running BOINC 5.2.13

I joined the team. Will it count the credits I already had towards the team?

BTW I show up as Justin on the team list.

We are at #121 in the teams rankings for recent avg credit.

We are at #88 in the teams rankings for total credit.

Still having overheating problems with my CPU at home but I continue to run this at work. Going to be getting a new CPU soon so hopefully that will help! We have 33 members now by the way!

My own update.

I'm at 10,039 credited points now. There's no way I'll ever catch up to our leaders.

Our 33 member team stands at 973,519 points and 2,470 recently credited points.

We are at #117 in the teams rankings for recent avg credit.

We are at #98 in the teams rankings for total credit.

I think we need some more people to join in.

I think we can easily move up if we get some more members to join in. We seem to be moving down in the rankings right now though.

Yes we are, slowly but steadily.

We are right on the virge of breaking 1 million on the credits either later tonight or tomorrow.

Yeah, we need another "recruiting drive" to build this up. I am hoping to get a new motherboard and processor at home which will hopefully run cooler (looking at a dual core Pentium 4) than my current hot setup.

Maybe you should post invitation in more sections on this forum. After all, this forum is full of people ready to participate, I know that. They just have to find out for this project and voila.

Nice to have you aboard! I would like to post more invitations but I also don't want to overwhelm the board with requests. Maybe I will post another invite though...

Has anyone thought of having a sub-board for BOINC related projects, that way people could actually have direct access to threads in one place, and in effect gain more people onto the team? :question:

BTW, I'm just heading over to Einstein to join CN and contribute my 11,000 worth of credit :jump:

That's actually a good idea. I think there are a few CN teams out there for various BOINC things. Anyone else have any feelings about a special board?

Might be hard to get other opinions for it, this forum doesn't exactly pop out as BOINC ;) That's exactly why it would be nice to have one that does :) I think I'll write one of the mods to see...

Thanks Matt for allowing that thread to be sticky for a while, and thanks for merging it into this thread. Now we must work on recruiting people, whether it be for Einstein or for Seti or any other BOINC project. Would an email to CN members inviting them to take a look at BOINC projects for their idle machines be feasible? :question:

Good question Stefan.

I think that anyone that leaves their PC on in standby mode 24/7 might as well put that otherwise wasted electricity to work furthering these important Scientific BOINC projects.
