These are 2 of my favorite shots from when I worked at the Grand Canyon.

Taken looking out the front door of my apartment.

Yes strange things are afoot, i'm missing 377k from the last stats update(2 hrs ago). Well I am according to external stats sites compared to what they are here. I mean I know the replica database is still catching up but why are the stats exports figures so different to what they are here? I thought the replica played no role in stats? Even if it does at the moment it's only 20 mins behind not 24hrs so whats with the big difference?

*LOL* I guess it's possible I crunched 377k in the last 2 hours but reality tells me other wise ;)

Can someone enlighten me please.


SETI only exports stats once per day.

Two words...Swamp Cooler. Uses 1/6 the power of central air, and the only things that can go bad are the fan belt, the motor, and the pump.

97 degrees outside now and 72 inside.

Of course you have to live in a relatively low humidity climate.

I grew up with one but getting a 40 degree temperature drop across one of them is pushing it. In addition, the house is new construction and was designed around a big heat pump so installing a cooler at this point would be an issue. The other advantage is we get bad dust storms and the heat pump pretty well keeps the dirt out.


My swamp cooler died when the bolts that hold the motor onto the cooler all snapped off.

I just stuck a 6000 BTU a/c unit in that window for now.

I eventually need to seal it up though.

Database access still very slow. Not sure if anything is splitting at this point on either MB or AP. SSP shows 14 splitters of 7 in-work on each. Seems to me I remember that means nothing is happening and it's lost track

AP is certainly splitting just fine. Just got tasks from 03dc14ab, 05dc14ab, 08dc14ab, and 24dc14ab - all in a single work request.

Hmm, I do not see that any of my computers got anything.....(looking at it from my work)
I wonder if the reason might be that they're shut down?

:-)

That would pretty much assure they would not get anything.
I have only 3 out of 9 rigs running right now.
Daily driver dead due to technical issues as yet unresolved.
The other 5 are shut down due to the temps here being around 90f for the next few days, and I don't want the crunchers, the kitties, or myself melting down.


Only 90!!

Currently 102.5 outside and I have both machines running.

Thermometer by computer says 80.9.

GPU's running at 48C and 59C on main machine.

And the server status page has started to update that figure, too, with

Result files waiting for deletion 14,596,848

That's good news, with a gentle tick in the right direction.


Result files waiting for deletion 13,697,304

Almost another million down.

I am thinking about installing it on my Flaky drive, just to see what it does.

I downloaded it with the tool this morning to a flash drive.

m$ has taken away the ability to choose not to install updates so machines will randomly reboot at night and waste time that could be used crunching


That's only on the Home version. In the Pro version you can still choose not to install updates. Even then, you could simply edit the registry to auto-login to a user account and resume crunching right after reboot.


And there will most likely be a fix for for home users soon as well.

And don't ban Eric!!!

If a ban vote on Eric succeeded, it would be more than two weeks before he even noticed!


Though I am fairly certain that Admins cannot be banned, never seen the underside of this forum software.
