On the team management page:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/team_manage.php?teamid=30229
Other resources for BOINC team admins are available from a third-party site, http://www.boincteams.com

The link to www.boincteams.com is out of date. The site now seems to be a personal blog.


Actually it looks like it was swooped up by one of the lovely spammers as it all ads in danish.

Posted 3 days ago by Profile arkaynProject donor
If they are still there then they should process through till done and you should start to get new work units under the cuda version you selected


Yep, the app_info has all the plan classes in it, so nothing will get orphaned.

I`d suggest the VaporX version.
It has much better cooling than the reference design.

I have a 7970 VaporX which is the same card in principle and i`m very happy with it.

About $270 until 10/19.
5) Message boards : Number crunching : AP V7 (Message 1587002)
Posted 5 days ago by Profile arkaynProject donor
On a slightly different note, all the AP V7 tasks I've downloaded have a ridiculously long estimated time (150:14:34). The actual run time is about 5:30. I assumed at first that the estimated times would straighten themselves out over time, but I have now completed 185 tasks, yet the inflated estimated times remain the same.

Increasing my work buffer to 10,10 days does little to help me get tasks since the scheduler thinks each one's going to take over 6 days to complete.

Is this a bug, or is there something I configured wrong?


None of your 3 machines have hit the 10(non-outlier) valid work unit plateau as of yet, once they do the estimate will come down.

Could anyone who got alerts download from my site and check if you get the same please.
Just to reduce possibilities.

I'm getting the same warning in Chrome as with the Lunatics download.

The only info Chrome offers is this link

https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/4412392?p=ib_download_blocked&rd=1&hl=en

Did it say whether it was Malicious, Uncommon, or Unwanted?

We'd expect Uncommon this soon after a release (323 downloads so far, from Lunatics and Arkayn - don't have figures for Mike's site), and it would be nothing to worry about. Malicious or Unwanted would be something to take more seriously.

I can confirm 186 downlaods of the installer so far.

500+ in a smidge over 24 hours. I think we'd have heard about anything genuinely dangerous by now.


77 between the 2 versions on my site.

Richard stated that the new installer may be released in the next 48 hours or so.


Indeed good news, I will work on getting my old workstation back on line and happily crunch S@H 7 until the release. I really didn't want to edit code, it gives me a headache.


It is not editing code at all, you drag and drop the new app, then double click on the aimerge.cmd.

Then start BOINC back up.

Ok, just had my first AP v7.05 error out due to Exceeded Time Limit. Anyway to correct the estimate that comes with the APs to give them more time so that the APs finish and we can get a correct estimate after 11 validated work units? As it stands now, I don't think anyone will finish.
Thanks

Just as before. Suspend the task(s) in the BOINC Manager. Stop BOINC, Open client_state.xml and search for Suspended. Copy the task name and search for the <workunit> entry for that task. Move the decimal point one space to the right in the entries;
<rsc_fpops_est>xxx</rsc_fpops_est>
<rsc_fpops_bound>xxx</rsc_fpops_bound>
Repeat for all required tasks. Save client_state.xml and start BOINC.

Now I'm getting an Error with ap_7.01r2559_sse3_OSX64;

This is a Permissions Issue. Someone didn't set the Permissions correctly on the App before posting it for Download.....arkayn!


I would have no way of setting permissions, I no longer have a Mac.

Hey, is that the ice machine that puts
little bowties on cubes?





I've always wondered how the ice cubes with holes in the middle get made.

Still don't know exactly what Julie's machine does.


That is because of the way they are made in the machine itself.

Could you post the Mac versions to your site as well?

Thanks,

If there are no optimized applications available at the moment, then give at least a link to download the standard distribution AP7 application(s) for the anonymous platform users to be prepared. ;)

If Mike and Arkayn could mirror the final release packages for each individual app on their sites, please, it would save me breaking away from trying to knock the whole installer into shape.


I have them up on my site now as well.

I have a couple of them up, but you will have to make your own app_info for now.

I had a dream build in mind. And this what my current idea is. Or you can call it. "Throw the budget out the window."

OS • $119.99 Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64BIT Operating System Software - OEM DVD, English

This is the instant savings and rebates version.

OS • $89.99 Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64BIT Operating System Software - OEM DVD, English



I would change the bolded versions, 32bit can only access 4GB or RAM.

During the fund raisers for the new servers, I'm pretty sure that Brad went missing for a short while & on his return, stated that he had a medical issue & was under the weather.

Surely, the GPU users group could find out if he is okay & still with us?


He is.
