    Personal Crunching Goals for 2015

    I wanted to start a thread where we could all document our crunching goals for the upcoming year. Then, I'd like to periodically return to it to see how we did. Though you can certainly put whatever you want in here, I'd suggest putting down specific, difficult, and quantifiable goals.

    Here are mine:

    45 1M projects (currently 34)
    1 25k hr star on WUProp
    4 10k hr stars on WUProp
    100M GPU Grid
    250M Colltatz/PG (one of those two)

    I don't really have any specific project goals i can name that i know won't change 100 times before the end (or the start) of next year. But my #1 goal i have right now is to build enough additional computers to be able to get 1000 WuProp hours per day in any given project that has the work available

    Bah! Set your sites higher than that! That's only like 41 2/3 cores. You're probably most of the way there already anways!

    EDIT: WuProp Combined Hours Yesterday: 584.88

    So yes, you have set your bar too low.

    Re: Personal Crunching Goals for 2015

    I don't have specific goals (yet). But let me make a suggestion to everyone:

    On January 1st, take a snapshot of all your stats!

    Go to Free-DC and dump it into a spreadsheet. Do the same with your wuprop hours (which you can also do from Free-DC is you turn on export).

    Then at the end of the year, you can measure your accomplishments. It will also allow you to know how much you contributed to the team's FB achievements. For example, if the team added 20M to WCG, how much of this was you? Now you can figure it out.

    But if you don't take that snapshot, no way to know.
    A state where police work is easy, is also known as a police state.

    Hmmm...and i could've gotten more hours than that but the wife keeps turning of her (my) computer. Ok i guess it's too low then. 2000 hours/day. This is actually pretty steep since to even hit 1000 hours/day will require major electrical upgrades to the house.
