Thunderstorms and a power outage this morning. Continued thunderstorms for the weekend.

I learned to drive in a 1979 Ford Fairmont Station wagon and a Ford F150 pickup truck.

The station wagon was automatic and the pickup was stick.

Most of my cars have been automatic though.

The kitties have no complaints....
They feast on AP when it is available and then dutifully crunch away at the MB cache to help the servers towards the next batch of AP.

It would be nice if the credits were normalized between the two types of work though.

AstroPulse v7 will probably do that. It is current being tested on Beta.


Most likely the wrong direction though.
26) Questions and Answers : Windows : BOINC Manager Can't Connect to localhost (Message 1550783)
Posted 50 days ago by Profile arkaynProject donor
I have two PCs that, until Apr, have successfully run the BOINC Manager (running two projects SETI and Einstein). Both are running Win7 (SP1) and ZoneAlarm Free. Windows Firewall is disabled. The computers are connected on a LAN with a DIR-645 DLink router. Regular Internet access is not impeded (games, e-mail, browsing, access to NAS).

One computer's OS was completely re-installed in Apr and, consequently, so was every application on that machine. BONIC Manager now refuses to connect to the localhost. On log in, I get a dialog which states that "BOINC has exited unexpectedly 3 times within the last 3 minutes. Would you like to restart it again?" Clicking "No" shows a BM status of "Disconnected".

I click on "Yes" and the status in the lower right hand corner says "Connecting to localhost". It eventually times out. When the screensaver starts, the screen reports that BOINC is not running.

I have tried reinstalling BOINC, and suspending the firewall and antivirus. I cannot specifically open any TCP ports with this version of ZoneAlarm but all of the BOINC executables and screensaver are at the "Super" trust level.

I've googled the problem and searched the BOINC forums and have not found an answer. I would really like to get this working again.

Please, any sage advice?

Cheers,

Skywalker


Check ZoneAlarm and make certain that BOINC can communicate on port 31416.

Something like this is what I have in mind. The heat has burned the garden out for the summer so I am not going to show you a current picture.


Southern or Northern Arizona?

Kind of half way - Phoenix area.


To me that would be Southern, mostly.

I am definitely northern though.

You would most likely be looking at one of the R7 versions then.

Those are the low and midrange cards this time around.

Getting ready for today's heatwave...

[edit] 48°C Arkayn? Are you kidding me?

I doubt Arky is joking on that temp, He lives in Arizona, the temps there are sometimes only just short of Baker and Death Valley California. Though for the Golden Valley area in Arizona, I don't see any temps like or near 48C right now, though they can happen, Phoenix on the other hand does show signs of being hotter on the extended forecast, like on Thorsday of 114F/46C, where I live gets about as hot as Phoenix and has had 115F/47C days in the past, though so far, not this year.


My workplace is in Bullhead City, just across the river from Laughlin. And about 3000 feet below Golden Valley.

I dunno. I think this machine is something special.


With 40 cpu cores its got to be something unusual. Maybe it has 20 cores plus hyperthreading.

36) Questions and Answers : Windows : Download Size Per Hour (Message 1542614)
Posted 65 days ago by Profile arkaynProject donor
For those of us that may be limited to data size downloaded per month by our internet provider without have to pay for overages; how much data is downloaded to a PC in an hour for Seti@Home?


Multibeam work is 367 kilobytes, they are classified as SETI@home v7

Astropulse work is 8 megabytes..

For that computer I would stick with multibeam work as astropulse would most likely take several days.

You most likely will only download about 4 megs a day if you run multibeam.

I usually look for the least expensive gas here.


That's a nifty guide. Thanks.


I use the state version of Gasbuddy, which for me would be http://www.arizonagasprices.com/

I would love to get the Setiperformance testing software but the download site is setup to spam all over the place. And my browser barfed them back at it.

I would be happy to make the download freely/without spam available. Someone get to me and I will post in on my ChatNFiles.com website.
