I started having problems with the monitor locking up and not responding this AM. I stopped the screen saver and it still happened. The Cuda is set to start after 3.5 min of inactivity and that is about how long it took. Having to reboot the machine every time I want to use it is unacceptable. I have set to no GPU and aborted all 6.09 (cuda 23) tasks.

BTW, guys, we are here to help them not the other way round.

I just had to abort all the 6.08 (cuda) tasks but now I seem to have my computer back.

When is Dr Anderson going to fix the DCF problem with Seti@Home?

I was told elsewhere that this is something that He could do.

Gripe: There's nowhere to hide the present I bought for a member of the family until Christmas morning.

Gripe: There's nowhere to hide the present I bought for a member of the family until Christmas morning.

I used to hear stories about how my grandma would hide presents so well, she forgot about them. But, my aunt had found them anyway and on Christmas morning, she'd say "Hey, what about the such-and-such you got me?" and go get it from its hiding place. Or, as soon as she opened something, she'd say "It doesn't fit" without trying it. She'd already tried it while it was hidden. When my mom went to college, my grandma skunked my aunt -- she hid all the presents in the dorm.

Gripe: This project will most likely never find anything even resembling an ET signal with the methodologies being employed.

Kudos: The fact that we're still trying given the limited tools at our disposal.


Merry Christmas all

My biggest Gripe is that S@H gives me NO tasks under Linux and few under windows... and those few typically restart the download 10 times or more, downloading at a blazing 1Kbps to 5Kbps... and that on a 10+ MBit up/down cable connection...

I don't know who is getting all the server bandwidth, but it sure isn't me... and it's been this way for months!!

8-)

This is a fast one!! One of about half a dozen I've received in the last day or two...



Over 12 minutes as of now and doing a bristering 0.42Kbps... Sheesh!!

Yer running 6.12.33, Switch to 6.10.58 and You might get more, as always YMMV, I ran 6.12.34, same problem, went back to 6.10.58 and I get lots of work, plus the backoffs due to bandwidth problems(traffic at Seti@Home). I've had wu's get stuck at 3.5Kbps...
Good Luck.

LOL! I doubt it's a problem with the client since it works fine for 26 other projects... It's the server bandwidth...




When it takes HOURS to download a task... well... it's just painful! LOL!

Kudos: Just got back from an 8 day Xmas break with relatives with no internet access and found that all my crunchers have managed perfectly well without me, my RAC is at an all time high, no backup projects were needed and judging by the cricket graphs, SETI central worked perfectly throughout that time with not even a weekly outage break.

Gripe: Based on the above, I wish it could be Xmas every week

Kudos: Almost everything here seemed to be going the right way, even XMAS Dinner.

Gripe: Stomach flu ruined It all, Hopefully a week is enough time for a flu shot to take effect for the manager, as She has to deliver the rent bill to Me.

Kudos: Some lads have been in the lab during the last week, doing the weekly outage and putting work for splitting and whatnot. WHEN THEY SHOULD BE AT HOME DRINKING! :)
