I know I've lately been getting lots of low-point WUs that still take a day or two to crunch. Might be the same for a number of others, as well. I can crunch a 324-point WU in the same time as a 64-point one? Then there's my iMac: it'll take weeks no matter what WU it is. :oops:

Finally found some time to look into it -- got three machines cranking a bit. Takes time :P

Question w/ that trend is, is it it worth the 1kWh/day I'm putting into it right now ?

it's given me a ton of crappy units over the last couple weeks. I got one 600-point unit that took 8 days to crank out (instead of the normal 3). So yeah, it's no wonder the average has gone down.

Speaking of slackers: this guy isn't. He's going to give Xciter a run for his money sometime soon...

Holy crap, the giant has woke up. :o

I remember way back when I was on Team Rage3D, wondering why our teams #1 folder was completely inactive...

My little trickle of points had to stop for a little while, since I've finished up at college and have no connection at home. I'm hoping to get a wireless network set up in the next week or so, so hopefully I'll be back soon.
