Carlos, I got your IM. I can bring the octo to play shortly. It currently has some time-sensitive work on it. But it won't be able to stay more than 24 hours. I'm going to be going in the hospital soon.

Indeed you are bleeding the server down rapidly

Good luck in the hospital and see you back soon!

BTW, what does an octo cost?
That is one screaming box...
Care to share the particulars, in the off chance I think I can afford one?

FYI, port 6000 is used by the X Window system. Took me a while to figure out why I couldn't get through my firewall (a normal set of software firewall rules doesn't allow incoming X connections).

Here's what I paid for the parts:
Code:
1 MB-X7DWAN  Supermicro X7DWA-N      482.00  482.00
2 XEON5440BX Intel Xeon E5440        691.00 1382.00
4 T667FB2G4  2GB DDR2-667 FB-DIMM     74.00  296.00
1 EV-88GT5SP eVGA 8800GT 512MB SC    257.00  257.00
1 PS-C620HX  Corsair HX620 620W PSU  120.99  120.99
I used the Ars Technica God Box as a starting point. You could probably build two Core2 Quad systems for cheaper if you were just looking for crunchers, but I use this as my desktop.

You can stick with port 500 if you like. It will remain port forwarded on my smoothwall box for the duration. :)
Nice Octo! :thumbs:

We can all take off our machines to keep yours busy. As I write this message the server has less than 27806 pairs so what about leaving 4000-5000 pairs to you? Which type of machines do you have on the server?

IronBits,

I think it's time to update your server settings to:

jobMaxTime = 1 * 6 * 3600 -- 6 hours
prunePeriod = 1800 -- 30 min

The server will dry in less than 12 hours. Moved again 6 cores to help the drying process.
