    WUProp: Did you know...

    ... that the hours system is coded as (for example): "hours > 1000" and not "hours >= 1000"?

    I just learned this fact.

    I have exactly 1000.00 hours on solocollatz. And WUProp sees that as a "gold" project still, and it hasn't turned ruby yet. I find this fact weirdly hilarious.

    That's all. You may move on now.

    I veered 3 light years off course for this! You must be related to Nilz Baris, Federation under-secretary of agriculture, who uses priority 1 distress calls to have in-person conversations!

    Sorry... Didn't mean to cause alarm. Just found this little tidbit of information fascinating. Plus, I had to brag that that, across all those WUs I've finished. I managed to get exactly 1000.00 hours. Like a boss.

    I doubt you could do that again if you tried

    BTW i've taken your advice to heart and am about 1 swig away from being legally drunk lol I impress myself on my typing abilities in this condition. Extremely rare condition for me. While i'm feeling wonderful though, i think i'll put a 750W PSU in a loldell Pentium 4 system just to see what i can get away with afterwards...

    I kinda wish I weren't finishing up these WUs... that would be a hell of a record.

    That's funny... I find I do better computer work when I have a few drinks in me. Dead sober might cause me to throw a screwdriver through a wall, but with a couple drinks, suddenly I have the patience of a monk.

    And no, there's not a shot in hell i could do that again.

    Re: WUProp: Did you know...

    Here's another fun fact about WUProp hours: They accumulate much faster if your machines are actually on and running BOINC. Based on today's experience, WUProp hours came to a standstill with my machines off due to a power surge...
