Message 1321095 - Posted: 29 Dec 2012, 2:38:24 UTC

AP WU 1142265986.
Sent to one of my rig and one other on 28 Dec 2012 | 22:23:40 UTC.

The other user has a deadline of 22 Jan 2013 | 22:23:40 UTC.
Mine shows time out, no response at 29 Dec 2012 | 2:28:26 UTC.
It was then reissued with a deadline of 23 Jan 2013 | 2:28:37 UTC.

Why didn't the kitties have until Jan. 22nd to finish it?
My body may be here, but my mind is in a galaxy far, far away.

Have made friends here.

I've always thought that it was part of the same mechanism that stops VLAR's being sent on a nVIDIA request myself.

Cheers.

Could you please explain this remark? Is it a joke? Am I missing something (besides 100 or so IQ points)?

Got another one just about like it.......must be the idiot scheduler sending WUs where they don't belong because comms are trashed.

With people who are not running the nVIDIA openCL app then the Astropulse workunit will be treated the same as a VLAR, CPU request makes it through but isn't acknowledged at the user end so the workunit becomes a ghost and then the machine requests GPU work so any ghosts that can only run on CPU for that setup will be automatically timed out.

Cheers.
