    The 16e WUs require up to 1GB RAM. If your system doesn't have enough physical memory, it will use virtual memory (paging memory in and out of RAM and onto disk) which is horribly slow. If you don't have enough RAM, run the 15e and 14e WUs. They only require up to .5GB RAM. If you want more credit, run 15e as they pay better than the 14e. If you want badges, run both.

    -or-

    Since the 16e pay 3-4X the 14/15e WU then you can reduce the number of threads running 16e so it fits into your available memory. You'll get more credits that way

    I thought I had 6GB on this thing... I actually have 8GB and only 56% is being used. I killed GoofyGrid and WUProp and that cleared up 6 of the 8 threads. I still have 2 threads running in the red for some reason; however, it's no longer showing ridiculous completion times. Even the 16e say they'll complete in 2.5 hours... so we'll see.

    I'm just running NFS for the challenge but I will be more that happy to take any credit or badges I gain.

    I have seen the problem with GoofyGrid in the past. wuprop is not contributing to the problem, so turn it back on.
    The state or, to make matters more concrete, the government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they cant get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods. - H.L. Mencken

    There are 2 very fast movers from GridCoin. Neuraminer is doing 30k/hr and the UofS is at 22k. The 1st one will definitely take the top spot and the 2nd one will be right on top of Scole at the end ... hard to predict how that one will finish.

    Teamwise, it looks like Gridcoin is running about equal to our output so they will have a hard time overcoming our lead.

    @Pete, nice run there

    Late start due to star chasing, but I am up to 11th place. Not bad! I think that is as high as I will go, as everyone above me is crunching at a higher rate.

    Can anyone get the comparison graphs to work?

    Also, do we have this in the bag already? I have no problem continuing to crunch it. But if it's not needed, I could be working on other goals.
