Also, bunkering till the last minute is a good strategy just pay attention to the server. If it gets too over loaded then you'll need to dump your tasks sooner or they may not make it though the validator.
That's what I'm thinking. OldChap BOINC past contribution history does not suggest that he has so many rigs and now he is like top of the world. In WCG, his rigs are shown here. No way he could have done this with these rigs.
That would have been Phoenicis who dropped a bunker. He also has a large army of AWS he's fired up. I've sent him $500 and atp1916 has sent him $150 to fund more instances. If anyone else wants to contribute PM me and I'll give you my address and fund 100% of the funds to his wife's paypal.
You can't bunker AWS. Well you can, but you risk losing them all if they decide to cut you off for a bigger customer. Having your own rigs means you can bunker the tasks and strategically deploy them where and when you need them.
I'm not sure they're using AWS though, but it wouldn't surprise me.
Have another quad-8160 coming online soon. Will see what I can do about the other boxes. A lot of them have been offline as I wanted to lay low for a while before people started questioning the massive amounts of power this one lab has been sucking down. Well, that and the noise was starting to get to me.
