Most people say "a lot of machines"
Now if there's machines at work or at some university
involved, they don't run 24/7. Maybe 12/5.
So guessing that the average cpu is a Pentium III 550 MHz,
this would mean you need about 400 machines to get to
100.000 blocks average if you run them 12/7.
I was just wondering if I'm missing out some trick to
increase crunching speed.
My highest score was about 23.500 blocks for one day
and I had all machines hooked up that I could get a grip on.
BTW: is there a chart somewhere on the topic what processor
(type/speed) can crunch how many blocks a day?
