Whats the WU speed on BOINC anyways?
I hope it won't go up to rediculous amounts of time like the F@H units do sometimes.
Taking a week or so on a 1Ghz machine, but having a timelimit of 2 to 3 weeks on the units. Wich in itself makes using your old P2 266 boxes
imposible, because they can't complete units in time.
Thats the main reason why I quit F@H eventhough we had a team that did huge amounts of units. My computing power isn't in single powerfull machines,
but in the fact that I have several older boxes that I keep running server duty that use their spare cycles in Distributed projects.
The thing I hated about F@H even more on this subject is that they know exactly what CPU speed you have, so they could easely direct and reserve the
smaller, faster units for older boxes and send the big fatso's to the fast boxes.
F@H gives different points for different units, making it so that when you have a very fat unit to proces, you also get fat points for it. But an
older machine can't complete the units in time.
Seti lets a P2 300 crunch a unit in 20 to 24 hours, wich makes it put out 2 units a day on my Dual P2 300 box. 2 units a day is alot if its
