I can watch TIMVision either on the PC or the TV via decoder. But to watch Eurosport on the TV I need the TIMbox, which is a decoder. Then I pay nothing for one year, then 1.99 Euro/month.

You don't need a decoder to watch Eurosport via Internet.
You need however a subscription to Eurosport Player.

The decoder can show TIMVision, which gives Eurosport free of charge for one year.
RAIsport coverage is poor.

The wind is ruining the Olympics.

I had bought a decoder for viewing Olympics through Eurosport via Internet but it is useless. I spend my time studying Cloud Computing in an online course by Dublin University.

A bronze medal for Dominik Windisch in the 10 km biathlon sprint. They all come from Anterselva, the only place in Italy where there is a biathlon track.

I am getting restarts only with SETI@home GPU tasks, not with Einstein@home GPU tasks. I watch the Maintenance/Reliability window and it always fails whenever I run SETI@home. So I am splitting work, SETI@home on the Linux box, LHC@home on the HP Linux laptop with no graphic board, and Einstein@home on the Windows 10 PC with GTX 1050. So everybody is happy.

My GPU temperatures are 43 C on the GTX 750 Ti running SETI@home and 69 C on the GTX 1050 Ti running Einstein@home. They are not OC and are both air cooled.

It seems now that the Tesla is going to join the Asteroid belt. Inter Martem et Jovem unam Tesla interposui (with apologies to Johannes Kepler).

I am running all SETI GPU tasks on a Linux box ( an old SUN WS) with a GTX 750 Ti and they all validate. On my Windows 10 PC, a HP desktop, I have a GTX 1050 Ti and it reboots frequently. but GPU tasks validate, exactly as on the SUN WS.

It has landed in Los Angeles on a C5A cargo plane. Now the two parts will be joined together and tested again. They are proceeding slowly and cautiously.

I still get offers for GPU boards in Italy without any increase in price. What I get are invitations to buy Bitcoins from people who evidently do some mining. But there are news that American banks will not allow the use of credit cards to buy Bitcoins. So far Italian banks have almost ignored the subject and the price of a Bitcoin has dropped below 10k dollars.

In Italy not only the Gov but also the scientific establishment ignores the existence of BOINC, so I don;t think they will bother us.

Well, LHC@home is in a crisis for unknown reasons. CPDN is unreachable, Sourcefinder an astronomy project also using VirtualBox like LHC@home has no work. Only Einstein@home is feeding my computers.

I am glad they did not hurt themselves like Jacqueline Wiles yesterday. Sofia still leads the downhill cup with only one race before the end (no Olympics).
