My current values





Some data cannot be read in the VM (fan speed, CPU temp...)

This is another DYFL luckily running at the moment.

This is a machine exclusively dedicated to Boinc, with a GTX 1080, but I have no (and will never have any) physical access and/or physical control on that machine : it is a hosted gaming virtual machine (https://shadow.tech) that I use for boinc :D

(and the GPU can be physically another one if I stop / restart the machine ! but I don't do that if I'm not forced to)

I *think* fans and heat is OK because I could install GPU-Z on it and it looks pretty optimistic if I'm not wrong (but I'm no GPU expert, at all). I cannot tell you the tech info now cause I can't access it from the office (ssssshhhhh don't tell them I'm here !) and it won't work on my smartphone if I'm not on a good wifi neither, I can check this tonight.

But other members of l'Alliance Francophone are also using the same and they seem quire satisfied.

Hi

I just finished my first DYFL in 213453 secs.

In your grid above dated 11/02 :

| GeForce GTX 1080 | 195014.429779 |

in your grid dated 16/02 :

| GeForce GTX 1080 | 125601.904387 |

How can it be so different ?

This forum is not the place to fight over whether or not person X is cheating on project Y.

Even though this is a very volatile topic where many people have very deep feelings, I haven't yet needed to remove anyone's posts, or stop people from posting. I'd prefer not to start, okay?

You are right sorry for that.

(it seems I only have the Edit button on recent messages from me, not the older ones, so I can't fix that)
(it also seems there is no delete button for your own messages ?)

Another example is when someone managed to boost his Celeron G1620 (2 threads) RAC to 26000 (~4x Xeon(R) CPU E7- 4870 @ 2.40GHz (80 threads)) in Rosetta@home, won't post link to his profile here, but you can find him in top participants if you want, he crunches for biblepay.

Why can't you name him ? I can. He is the KoACAaBtE (*). The 1st one (and maybe the 3rd ?) of the list does have a weird RAC indeed... compared to other machines.

He is host #17 in the hall of fame, just above a machine with 64 threads.

For some, money generates greed, this is (part of) human nature :)

Yes, this is what I added in my (*) but you made the decision that you made precisely because the risk is inherent to the nature of coins teams :)

@Michael : OK clear.

But if we consider your very first assumption " When people are able to make money on PrimeGrid, that invites unscrupulous users to join in order to cheat" (and I very much agree with that), I'm not very sure that these people will play by the rules that you are trying to define here (*). Unless GC actually act as you wish and based on their system, they won't generate anymore the money with PG.


(*) I don't say at all that "all GC members are people like that", I like to think that it is the other way and that actually most of their members are nice people, but I also think that "those not nice existing people will more probably be part of a team like GC than a regular boinc team, statistically". Because of the money, even if tiny, it is money.

I asked becaise you wrote "While not impossible, it's much more difficult to do without the stats files" so now I understand that you consider that this technical measure is self-sufficient and you will not particularly track those projects. Ok.

And will not the "normal" boinc statistical websites be impacted by this measure too ?

Gee Michael you made my day ! :) I've learned many things today !

Back to the (direct) subject, does your decision with PG and "coin teams" means you'll have to actually list and follow up such teams o a regular basis, or are the measures you took (stop publishing technical result about credits ?) sufficient to "let it be" ?
