If the earlier WU using the Tinker core ended up being worth 29 points, it would've worked out to 2.18 pts/hr. If the current WU using the Gromacs core ends up being worth 54 points, it will yield 1.08 pts/hr.
So, the Gromacs core might not be the best one to be using with my system, a Celeron 1200. After this one finishes, I'll try doing another one with the Tinker core before making a final judgement.
I'm a network admin at my company, so I have a lot of leeway in what I do, but my boss doesn't like PCs getting left on. He occcasionally needs to come into my office for parts when I'm not here. If I modify the power supply and undervolt the CPU fan, he'll never know it's running, hehehe.
He wouldn't do anything more than asking me to stop leaving it on, though. A couple of the CAD guys have been getting away leaving their machines on most of the time. Hmmm, that gives me an idea.
Later this year I might be able to contribute to a larger extent. We'll probably be buying quite a few new PCs, which of course will need to be burned in awhile before being deployed.
