After all these Years...I feel much like Bob and Chris.
It is a very worthwhile project. However it could take Many years.
I wish you well on this and other projects. ;o)

I just found out today that my best friend from childhood is in the hospital from a Massive Stroke.
He had the stroke on Wednesday evening...He has 4 blood clots in his brain and things are not looking well for Him.
Hopefully on payday I can get into Louisville and see him. All I can do is Pray real hard.
I've known Max since the second grade and if he goes this is going to kill me.
Damn, I hate being poor white trash.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Use nVidia ones please Jim, not Windows update ones.

Thanks Jason, I've been running 344.11 for quite a while and they have been running great.

I'm running 3 win 7 boxes and am not getting any GPU work on my nVidia boxes and have changed nothing at all. The ATI box is still getting work.
It seems that all of the nVidia tasks are pending so not getting any new GPU tasks on those boxes.

Posted 31 Jan 2015 by Profile Jim_S
AstroPulse tasks may use a bit more CPU than MultiBeam but well-tuned AstroPulse applications will also push the GPU a lot harder and often run them at higher temperatures compared with MultiBeam.


That pretty much answered my question...I don't want to over stress my OLD stuff until I can afford to rebuild.(About 20 more months.) I'm on a very tight budget. Thanks folks.

I've NEVER crunched APs on my video cards. Do they create more heat than MBs?
Also since I run Lunatics would I have to reinstall to do so?
