Hello:

A 683 (did you swap digits around?) on my Athlon 700 Classic is going to take ~148 hours! That's 60 points in over 6 days -- less than 10 points/day...

To add to that, I tried bumping my oc on my fast machine up by 26mHz and a 60 pointer got corrupted at 98%! THEN, the next day, my cat barfed on the UPS, which shorted it out and I lost about 12 hours there...sheesh! :roll:

So what's this? The latest excuses on why the homework hasn't been done? I remember even in my day "The dog ate it" didn't really work.. I think I'll try the cat barfing on the UPS next.. :)

Hello:

Well, they have not *all* been finished -- my fast machine is churning through one, and it will take almost 50 hours! :x At that rate, it should be worth at least 100 points; rather than the 60 that it is. Thankfully, my slow machine will FINALLY be done with a 683 sometime tomorrow morning -- AFTER SIX AND HALF DAYS, so I won't have another 0 point day tomorrow... :shock:

I gotta get me another fast machine...maybe there is an Athlon 64 in my future? :)

So I've just switched from the Stanford GUI client to Electron Microscope and if I'm reading it right, the p683 W/U that I've been grinding through will only be worth 60 points when it finishes tomorrow?

Looks like your lead is safe for now, DryFire!

We seem to finish W/Us at about the same rate, but yours are worth more than mine.
