So with the downtime we recently had, I got it in my head that I should start crunching temporarily for other projects. This lasted for a day or so before I felt dirty and stopped said stand-by crunching. Your thoughts? (Let 'em rip!)

No need to feel bad.
So long you return everything is fine.

Oh my. Look at my .sig Am I horrible?

The differences you see are not what the %'s are set to. Not all projects have GPU apps or can use the GPU cards in the machines I have.

Well, LHC doesn't have a lot of work, but you also don't have a clue what the %'s are set to.

Eric crunches several projects and doesn't feel the least bit guilty. Enjoy!!!

Feeling dirty NO.
Other projects are my friends, especially Zero.

Do I feel guilty? Not one bit. The project has had severe problems. The loads on the machines has compounded them. I am EAGER to return. In force. But I think a slow return is actually very helpful right now.

I will start switching back in about 4-5 days. If it had been summer, I would probably have just turned the crunching off. Since it is winter, well honestly
I have not had my heat on yet. Computers are keeping me nice and toasty.

I don't feel guilty either. SETI will always be where my heart is, but I will crunch other projects in the meantime. Gotta keep the CPU's busy here, no GPU's yet. LOL I'll probably kick things back onto SETI in about a week, I figure let things settle down a bit here, before coming back.

The kitties are right now crunching Einstein on all their GPUs due to the GPUUG being in a crunching challenge there for a few more days.

The CPUs are all doing Seti, and the GPUs shall attempt a return when the challenge ends, if the servers are willing to cough up enough WUs.

You can see from my sig that I have dabbled in a few other projects over the years. But you can also see that the kitties call Seti home.
