Rob,

I agree that only distributing Shorties when AP's are not being distrubuted would help.

The point I was making is if you turn Shorties into VLAR's (should be fairly easy if they do it for the real VLAR's) then the CPU shorties would take
5 times as long as the GPU shorties.and not ask for more, more, mpore, like they do now.

The only reason to fear something as you describe it there, is because you consider it possible.

... what you posted implies that those running the project don't care about the issues they are having.

Non sequitur. Saying something is possible doesn't turn it into a certainty.

"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth" (Sherlock Holmes). But that doesn't apply here - there are a lot more possibilities left than the highly unlikely one that the project staff don't care, as evidenced by Matt's New Year post.


Inferences are out of my control.

What's worse; we've changed the subject and are in danger of running through the entire Oxford English Dictionary defining "care."

Since the discussion isn't fun, I suppose I'll give it a rest.

I will, however, point-out that I know that Eric interrupted turkey basting to go kick a server and someone has seen to some issues on a Sunday.

In light of those facts, and the reader's knowing I am aware of those facts, make whatever of my statement of fear "thou wilt," whosoever has the desire to make anything of it at all.

I surrender.

In the meantime, we can all resume complaining about and enlightening others about our interactions with the servers, as we have with regularity for several months.

I punched the update button 14 times in the past 30 minutes and finally got some work reported. Most of the failed contacts were "couldn't connect to server" after 10-30 seconds. The successful contact took 104 seconds to complete.

Uploads go through in less than 5 seconds on the first try. I have yet to see one of those fail.

Well it appears that they will be running out of MB units soon so without those clogging the pipes the reports should start getting through.

Sort of a good news/bad news situation since that means our queues will run dry. But since the AC is scheduled to be worked on Monday/Tuesday it was going to happen anyways.

But you know, in a way the AC repair is a thing to be celebrated. The last time I can remember that the AC needed to be repaired it had unexpectedly died and a bunch of stuff overheated and stopped.

I'm also glad that the resources exist to repair it.

Yeah, contacting the Scheduler appears to be getting even more difficult than it has been.

Not that there's much point - the tape pool is empty so all we are getting are APs and resends.

Oh well we'll just have to wait until someone gets in and loads a few fresh tapes for us to play with. Until then its a case of sitting tight and consuming our caches...

Don't forget it's the AC repair tomorrow and Tuesday then I suspect the outage will be Wednesday, so may be Thursday before things return to "normal" or whatever passes for normal wherever you are.

There's always Seti Beta, because of the Stuck Splitter Bug they have 100 times more Wu's than normal, and very few users to crunch them, and with the Hurricane link only being lightly utilised downloads are very fast,

Currently yes, but up until today the downloads on my Beta machines have been as slow as Seti main!!

Well, bar the one AP I'm empty. My temperature output has dropped significantly, just as we have the first freeze of the year. Can't have that.
And of course, the zero RS back-up project I chose isn't highest priority yet, so it won't get work. ;-)

You never go to the Server Status page do you? It was obvious it was running dry last night.

I remember reading somewhere that SAH beta doesn't work well with the latest Catalyst 12.11 beta drivers and it's a bit involved to down-grade. So that's why I'm not trying beta.

I can upload, but not report, cause My video card is failing, I'd like to remove it without switching the wu's to the cpu and I have cuda fermi wu's that haven't reported and I've tried. So I've set My PC to NNT, but after the last cuda fermi wu is reported, I can then shut down and physically remove that card, as the video driver crashes and My PC just locks up, that's how I found the PC this morning.

It looks like it will take someone on the staff resetting something. The Cricket graphs have gone south.

Likely won't happen. In the morning, everything goes offline for two days. I guess it's a way of "ramping down" before the outage.


Also, I don't know if you knew about this, but some time back (year+), Boincstats changed some things around and you have someone else's stats in your signature. You should head back over to boincstats and get the updated code for that.
