you earn enough money to pay such a bill?
i have not so much, and now the bill starts to hurt

I understand, and did not mean to be rude to you......
You played that card, friend.

I am blessed with a good job, I build fire trucks for the best fire apparatus company in the world, Pierce Manufacturing.

That does not mean bills don't get a bit tight when I have to shell out over half a grand in one month to keep the freaking lights on.

I am glad that you consider the project worthy enough to spend what you can afford on it. Yes, it's a cost that is hard at times to justify. I have some friends and relatives that think I am stark raving mad.

I drive a 1990 Oldsmobile Ciera when I could perhaps have a shiny new 'Stang in the driveway. I have chosen my priorities. My 1985 Maxda RX7 'fun' car is still pockmarked from a hail storm that smacked it a few years ago because I did not have the $4000.00 the body shop wanted to fix it.

Yes, I have made choices.

Car???
Seti is giving away cars???

They're auctioning off a moon buggy. Problem is... it's on the moon. ;-)

I got me almost enough creds to reach there and back........
If I fetch it, does it run on regular gas?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_Roving_Vehicle#Wheels_and_power says Power was provided by two 36-volt silver-zinc potassium hydroxide non-rechargeable batteries with a capacity of 121 A·h each.

So be sure to bring the correct replacements, as I don't think the tow truck can get that far.

Only errors: hostid=6598140.

What is here the problem?


Could be a bad/overheating card or bad driver. My bigger concern is why the daily quotas are being reduced when the invalid results are found. That needs to be fixed.

Eric said he'd post some details on the differences with the new app back on Thursday. I guess he didn't get around to doing it


Yeah, should have done it first. Spending too much time putting out the fires v7 started. Hopefully today I'll get to it.

Oh, no problem. I have a couple of then silver zinc thingys in my garage.
Always wondered what I was gonna do with them.

Saw that......
Your colo guys were asleep?

I thought that was supposed to be one of the benefits.

Jeff was unreachable, and I didn't know the magic incantations that would open a service ticket at the colo. I do now.

Send me the secret handshake, and I shall intervene on your behalf....LOL.

I suspect Jeff may be on a rampage looking for David right now.. No reason, just intuition.

Nope (electric), nor regular gravity (apparently). It has less than 25 miles on the clock though.

Actually, the 'buyer to collect' stipulation isn't so bad... if you live near Hollywood ;)

You really should post this type of question in the NC forum, or in the Q&A section, but:

You're still running anon. platform. Set your rig(s) to NNT, run out the old work and report it, then rename the app_info.xml to something else. Reset the project, and change back to accepting new work. Voila'!

You're running Setienhanced v6 apps on Anonymous platform, until you get a app_info with v7 apps in it you won't be able to run Setienhanced v7 Wu's, unless you remove the app_info and revert to the Stock apps.

1) All the Stock v7 GPU apps are Lunatics apps now!
2) You did go and enable 'SETI@home v7: yes' in your project preferences didn't you?
3) No, you copy and paste it from one of the posts in Number Crunching, and edit it to your requirements.

1: great! But Only GPU? Why not CPU Too? Sooner or Later?
2: NO, I didn't. Now I've done it on project page and I'v done "update" on the host 25 min ago. Nothing, untill now. Have I to reset again or have I only to wait?
3: What do you mean with (mine) requirements?

I have found this:

Make a new text file named app_config.xml and have this in the contents

<app_config>
<app>
<name>setiathome_v7</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.04</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>


and this

<app_config>
<app> <name>setiathome_enhanced</name>
<max_concurrent>6</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.04</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>


As I understand I will have V6 and V7, both GPU and CPU.
On some Hosts I run only one GPU task, on three ones I run two.


Sorry but I have to bump my message.
There are too many silly discussions and flames about "cars".
Forum should be left clean for important and tecnical info.
Avoid noise if you want info.

Self induced. To be honest, moving to v7 was prepared poorly:

- no heads up message explaining what the changes are
- no quick guide for fixes that need to be done
- obviously no work ahead with lunatics developers, so they were not ready to provide an enhanced app and new installer for the v7

I'm disapointed how this is managed.
