Now I understand why so many people are hesitant to run CEP2.

lol And that's the reason I'll probably not go much over 2yrs..Unless it's changed to a easier WU.

The cause is one of my passions, so I always keep it checked. I've got 11.5 years run time presently, second only to HCC. When I go unlimited and exclude all other WUs, I tend to get more errors. In fact I have one kludged up 'puter with an I7 on a cheap MB with an old sata 1, 12 year old laptop drive, that throws "computational errors" at the 25% point when I feed it a straight diet of CEP2.

Anyone else bunkering Asteroids?

I'm hoping to have close to a 1,000 done when I open the flood gates. CEP kept blue screening all my machines so I switched to Astro.

I thought about doing that but then realized I don't know how to do it in BOINC.. :shock:

My main machine stopped getting CEP2 for some reason. I have WCG suspended for now until the Pentathlon is over.

I set the Min and Max buffers high and kept updating Astro until I have a ton of them. Then I suspended networking under activity once they were all downloaded. Thus they are completing but not uploading. I have about 600 done right now. I probably won't release them until Wed.

There's a storm of controversy over this project because it requires a wingman to get your task validated. Some of the teams in the race are suspending tasks of their wingman if that wingman happens to be from a competing team that is in the top 3. Stupid, but that's how bad some people want to win. Hopefully future pentathlons will forgo any project that requires a wingman.
