There seems to be some version number confusion. Current minimum opencl_nvidia_mac requires OSX <min_os_version>110402</min_os_version>. From below it looks like you're asking for a max OSX version below the current minimum OSX version.


Anyone knows how this number translates into human-readable OS X version and how "lower than Darwin 15.4" Will be translated into <max_os_version> tag value?


If I read this correctly, 11.4.2 is the kernel version, so equates as OSX 10.7.5, Lion.

I am back for the Wow! event. Unfortunately, I have no budget for the electricity and new hardware (sigh). Zalster and Mr. Kevvy among others will pass me in a month or two.
I am going to try to find the SoG and privy apps (no luck so far...) and test them so I can maybe do next year's Wow! as well. Good luck all.

The most recent SOG app is available here

. . CPUs actually like Guppis (well mine do anyway). They run quicker than normal AR work so yes your RAC would go up. But normARs definitely run better than VLAR work on GPUs. If you are interested there is a thread about optimising your rig by rescheduling assigned work to the most appropriate device.

.



Not true, My GPUs squash any CPU calculation of VLARs

The issue is, how do you have your system set up, what kind of GPUs and what modifications of the system have you done.

My 1070 does a guppie in about 10 minutes working on 2 at a time.

My computers just went into no more updates mode.

I installed Sophos to handle my AV and malware needs.

...AND, yes ALL of our lines are registered with the Federal "DoNotCall.gov" system. This; however, DID NOTHING for us - scammers and Call Centers still managed to call my parents' home line!!! Been on DoNotCall.gov for AT LEAST 5 years; maybe longer, whenever it got started is when I put all of our numbers there.

After 5 years you have to renew.


Not with a cell phone.

I'd suggest we wait and see if the files return to normal today or tomorrow, and drop a note to the staff on Monday if they're still out of kilter.

Hopefully files do get fixed before SETI@Home Wow Event 2016 starts Monday 16.00 UTC...

The Wow stats are updated hourly, so they must use a different source from the public dump, which is only updated once every 24 hours.


I think they are scanning the actual account pages for the participants.

It is correct, you do not have OpenCL available for that computer.

You should probably reinstall the drivers as a first attack.

Rather nasty last night/way to early in the morning.

I seem to have had a cell parked over the trailer for about an hour.

Lost one section of shingle, I think.

I rebooted my only Win-10 machine into Linux Mint and I think it will stay there.

I would wait until the non-reference cards are available and that they have either 6+6 or a single 8 pin power connector.

Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Yermo/Barstow until 5pm, yeah I just heard some Thunder...

It does look nasty from the LA basin side looking over the mountains to the NE. And if I'm seeing those clouds near you they are monster tall!

We grow some real Frankenstein storms here, lots of heat, plus humidity from the gulf of California to the South, and there you go, We did get some rain out of it, but no flash flooding.

The storm is heading off to the NW now. :)


That is probably the one that was rumbling my house at 0130 this morning.
