Joined. Not sure how much I'll do considering I don't have the best cpu.
Sweet that's great to hear that we finally topped 100 days. For 17 people, well okay 8 people being as it is that many people adding to the overall total. Either way that's awesome. :>

Simply decrease the memory usage percentage then. Mine is fine at 70% while computer is in use, 85% while idle, much higher than the default settings.

Holy mother bump for good justice

As of today, we just reached 1 year's worth of processing for the World Community Grid! And in that time, a new project has been launched, for Clean Energy. So yeah.

Team Statistics

It'd be great to get some more members, for more processing for humanitarian research. Especially those with multi-core computers, but every additional computer contributes, every member counts.

I think I'll install this again when I have my new computer, also sorry for not responding to the stuff you earlier said but I already had it on very low settings and it was lagging because netbook from 2002 and stuff.

Glad I contribute my month's worth of processing. :>

But seriously, that's great to hear that we accomplished a year's worth of processing. Now to continue moving on forward.

I used the program alone for a few years, i have a good machine and joined SMWC team a few weeks ago (leo120120).

Just saying

Progress:
not so NEW progress! (56.25% done) [18/32]

... Why the first level of like every hack has a shooting pipe.
Decided to join the team.

i just lurk sometimes
Announcing that the SMWC team has just breached 3 years of distributive computer processing towards humanitarian research!

The team is rather sparse now, it seems I contribute to 40% of that, with me, HFD, and Zero-X still active, and Megafonzie and Leo120120 (who has more run time than me) recently inactive. Perhaps a few new people would be interested in joining the team, or interest re-kindled in those who registered before. The information is in the first post, and I recommend reading around the site as well as around the internet.


(Also, odd that I didn't bump the thread before (though I made a Hot Off the Press thread) around February 14, 15, and 16th when IBM's Watson, a supercomputer designed to match human's abilities to learn to understand language to answer questions (I recommend you watch the PBS documentary about it's development and challenges that also indicate that it wasn't as easy to match a human as one might think), competed against Jeopardy champions Ken Jennings (most wins, 74 consecutively) and Brad Rutter (most money won) in The IBM Challenge in Jeopardy. Watson won, and IBM donated half of it's million dollar winnings to the World Community Grid, the other half to World Vision)

Another bump, this time announcing our SMWC team milestone of 4 years worth of equivalent processing towards humanitarian research!

However.. I have to drop out of our team, small as it is. Processing 'anything' necessarily results in a direct increase in temperature, and in recent times my Toshiba laptop has become extremely susceptible to overheating, therefore it's become necessary for me to stop my BOINC processing. I'd still highly recommend the program, though I won't be running it on this new laptop.. Perhaps on a desktop with adequate cooling would it be better suited for long-term use.

What, no bump? I'll do it then. Bumpety bump bump, five years, yo.
The last bump didn't result in new members/attention, I didn't bother. However, I did pick up the processing again, I have a desktop that a friend gave me now. It's pretty much the only use I have for it, since I don't have the time to do gaming on it.

Getting back in on this in the name of love!
This computer literally never turns off so I should be able to rack up quite some time.
