Hot damn! Should be a good event. Great to see so many people interested!

For those interested this is the LinusTechTips team monthly points history over the past 3 years. Let's see if we can beat last years!

@GOTSpectrum Do you remember the total points earned for last years event?

Edit: Nevermind, XOC still shows it. 6,371,697,312 points earned, 288,472 Work Units completed.

Sure! I just pulled the data for November 2018 from XOC but I know that isn't accurate to the event itself.

Would be interesting to see how many people we had involved, how many points earned, how many work units completed, and whatever else. That way we have a goal to aim for this year. Try to beat the high score ;)

No rush though, whenever you get to it. I know you're busy with the sign ups.

No worries, will get it to you within the next hour or two.

 

And yeah, not only busy with sign ups but also building the backend database.

@GOTSpectrum it can look like that the 100k points and 20 WUs are entry requirements for the event. Maybe you wanna specify that more clearly :)

I signed up for F@H and the event yesterday, started folding, now I'm up to 500k points and 17 WUs on my new PC. Looking forward to October!

Also the stat's only update after a WU has been completed, and only once every hour, on the hour. So wait a bit and those points will show up ;)

Edit: Nevermind, XOC still shows it. 6,371,697,312 points earned, 288,472 Work Units completed.

What I think is quite impressive with this I the fact that even after all the pullback of production we are still producing more than we did before last year's folding month

where do I add this?

Open the Advanced Control from the Task Menu, Click on the Client, Click "Configure, select the "Slots" tab, select the GPU Slot, click "Edit", change the opencl-index to a value other than -1 and Click OK then Save. If that does not work try other values.

I already fixed it. I deleted the slot and then added it again.
