Always nice to see someone return.

May I suggest you take a look at a project called WUProp@Home. This is a non-intrusive project that counts the hours of crunching you do and adds it to their database. It doesn't really need any extra CPU time, just the time you are already running. The units are fixed at 6 hours (give or take 2-3 minutes) and 14.00 credits, but if you have a hankering for badge hunting, this will give you some help in that. Give it a look-see.

I think somewhere someone wrote 2-5 PCs was a garden. Over 5 is a farm.

I've been that cusp on and off for a very long time. Currently I have 6 crunchers again with a free Pentium laptop that someone gave me that I put on PSA to gain some credit there. It doesn't do a lot of work, but every number crunched is one someone else doesn't have to do.

I think we need to recalibrate the equation Smile

I have 10-cores and 12 gigs of RAM dedicated to BOINC, but it's only 2 PC's so it's only a garden? #Mad #Mad #Mad

So true, that was back in the days of machines with maybe 2 cores, or so.

Fuzzy logic needs to be added now, with these machines that have multiple cores. I've seen machines with 64 and 128 cores. I am sure there are even larger. I would suspect that is a farm and then some.

Since multicore is more common, plus hyperthreading not really being a core and cannot always be used efficiently, the fuzzy really goes into many directions.

Someone else figure it out. I am throwing my whole groove off here just thinking about this.
