OK, the laptop discussed earlier is the oldest of 3. While I let that one go on two WUs using stock apps ...

The 2nd oldest is http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6729536 and I assume, by some of the returned WUs' application listed, I still have optimized apps on there. Can anyone tell if I need to update them?

This one is my newest. I've only had it about 2 months and have not bothered to install optimized apps on it yet. I'm going to bed soon, so if anyone call tell me what options I need to set, I can work on it early tomorrow morning.

I also downloaded CPU-Z to perhaps give more info about the CPU and GPU, if that will help provide more info.

Re-asking, since no one addressed it yet: is http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item114 still an ok place from which to get the optimized apps?

What is more worrying, why is your host got work for the opencl_ati_nocal_100 plan_class, your GPU doesn't have OpenCL capabilities, but does have CAL capability,
So why is getting work for a plan_class that should only be used when NO CAL support is available, while OpenCL support is available.

Claggy


Are you referring to the two tasks which it claims I aborted?

Yes, your GPU isn't OpenCL capable, while the apps that use that planclass only use OpenCL.

Claggy


Well, I am sure it's nothing I've done. I haven't installed the optimized apps yet, either. When I do, looks like I'll be getting them from http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item104 ... ?

Looks like you just got 1 AP task to chew on.


You are correct. Just after I responded to Rob, I rebooted the laptop to see if that would make a difference in helping along the rest. Two WUs being worked on, one with the assistance of the GPU.

you have four project locations/venues available


4? I would think it shows 3. My office computer (yes, I have cleared using the work computer for BOINC) has not run BOINC for months, do to some persistent issue with updating the BOINC manager.

Quite simple - it is trying to get task types that have been depreciated for some time.


Rob, either I am not understanding your response or you did not read everything I said, specifically:

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=72884&postid=1420638

No, resetting the project won't take care of that. You can either delete app_info.xml and then perform a project reset, or ...


That is what I have done.

The laptop mentioned in the beginning of this thread has, after several months of inactivity, been resurrected. All other projects have been set to No New Tasks. Yet, with S@H set to allow new tasks, none have downloaded.
I updated to the latest version of BOINC manager.
In notices, I saw messages similar to what I reported here, so I followed Ozz's advice again. Nearly 18 hours later and still no tasks have been downloaded.
My plan is to run with stock apps for a bit, then get the optimized apps.

The NeoCortex has to Constantly Battle The Lizard Brain and The Old Mammalian Brain.

If your NeoCortex is Damaged or Badly Formed, Evil can Take Hold. 'specially if you've Learned The Wrong Things.

I'm Battling Right Now.


I do hope your neocortex one day allows you to better connect your fingers to your brain and allow you to refine your typing skills.
Whether you realize it or not...or care.

Your betwixt and between posting style belittles what I think may be a fine mind.
You have opinions. And are certainly not an idiot. Why post like one.
Take this in stead, my friend.
You have castigated me many times for my posting abilities or lack of same at times.

I mean this to be a constructive suggestion to you.
Revise what you think might be humorous or amusing and start posting how you really think, man.
I believe you have a lot to offer without the nonsense of trying to glean what you are trying to say within the chaff.

You can do this, I know.

Give it a try, maybe?
It may mean giving up a little, but you can rise above that.


His posts are pure genius. Genius, I tell you, man! We bow before his mighty brain. May we ever hope to be able to post something one-tenth as brilliant as he.

Angela...

I'm just like you.

I will, in a calm, moderate voice, say EXACTLY what I think, to 'nut jobs' like you had. Some get very belligerent. But I just get 'calmer', and they sometimes leave. Sometimes very loud and profane (just shows what they really are).

Interestingly. Immediately afterwards, people come up to me thanking, or agreeing with me. But, not during the incident.


Perhaps it was like this, where former Scientologist Tommy Davis pushed the buttons of British journalist John Sweeney? The nutter being the parallel of Sweeney, except Sweeney was prodded. Hmmm.

How would YOU defend your Family/Country against those who wish to Exterminate those who aren't THEM?

Yeah yeah, you have asked that question a dozen times now. You know my answer.

Why don't you answer your own question? How would you defend against people who wish to exterminate you. If your answer is self defense through the use of deadly force then you have justified the actions of Hamas as much as the actions of Israel.

Still refuse to answer WHAT YOU would do. Not what you WOULD NOT do.

Therefore. One MUST surmise you are admitting losing the argument.

Please folks, erect your S.E.P. fields around him.

He has admitted what he is doing. Stop wasting your time with him. Keep calm, post on, to nearly everyone else here who is legitimately trying to express their thoughts, ideas and concerns.

Blurf, auto-IP detecting? That'd be easy to get around, wouldn't it? One for a computer at home and one for a computer at work.

I am sure this is hyperbole. When we asked months back if that was a banishable offense, we were told no. I am sure if the previous poster would review his e-mail records, he would find the screen name was not the reason for it.

BTW. If you see a thread of a troll, don't write in this thread.
Just let him write, don't care about.
Don't feed him.
He will die of starvation.

That is about the best advice there is for handling many types of posters.


But you post in my Waiting for Godot threads! :)

Barrel scraping tonight?

ID, you are successfully demonstrating that your argument is circular by using the same flawed sources in an attempt to "prove" two ideas that need to be handled in very different ways.

Others might say you are "spamming" these boards by repeating the same links in such a short period of time, so be aware of this please.


Not might. I do. He put the very same links in his thread and them spammed mine.

Posted 297 days ago by Profile Sarge
Intelligent Design
is unscientific, because it is not testable or
falsifiable. It makes claims about events that were not
observed and can never be re-created.

...Sci-Am.


Pssst. THAT thread is over <=== here.

Posted 297 days ago by Profile Sarge
What predictions does "intelligent design theory" make, that can be tested?
If the designer is no longer actively meddling in this Universe does that mean that she's dead?


One of their predictions is "there will be no junk DNA" (and, perhaps, no vestigial organs/appendages?).

If we remove a vestigial tail, does a human no longer function?
