    *Broadband at least 10M, always on.


Upload or Download? Or both?

And tell me where I can find Internet provider who promises 100% always on??

Well yes, thats true. What I was trying to say is it isn't suitable for someone who has a monthly usage cap, or someone who uploads/downloads their SETI results daily from a coffee shop.

Theres an initial download of around a gigabyte.
You get one BOINC job per computer, it runs for 24 hours wall-time.
It does CMS jobs which download a few tens of megabytes, works on them for about half an hour and then uploads a similar amount.

Hi,
I've been running this for the past four months, I've got jobs running smoothly and I'd like to add a few additions to Ivan's list above, because there is a LOT of data involved.

  • Broadband at least 10M, always on.
  • At least 3GB free memory. If you only have a 4GB memory machine, this is unlikely to work with other BOINC projects. And remember if you just Suspend the other projects for the day they will stay in memory - so suspend everything, restart BOINC and Then add CMS-dev.
  • At least 8GB Hard Drive free space available to BOINC. (You'll get it all back when you Detach from the project, of course!)

What do you mean last week?

As a TOG, I fully appreciate that they need to go on by the beginning of October at the latest!


A helpful reminder that all the myriad christmas tasks must come soon.
Getting the Trusty Volvo out of storage and driving 200 miles north on the A1 at 43mph to buy a tree in Scotland is another honorable TOGS job.

Well I can tell you, I wont be getting a Christmas Win

No, Mega Millions is on Tuesday and Friday. Christmas would be Powerball, Wednesday and Saturday.

Ping!

What I find funny is the folks that will buy tickets when the jackpot gets up to enormous sums, but not otherwise.

I mean, why play for just a few paltry million....LOL. The chance of winning does not change, and I'd be happy to win a little 15 million prize.

And may the odds be ever in your favor.


Well done sir, you have won 1000 dollars.
