Did i miss something?
Is there anywhere an AP6 r2083 (or later) version for Nvidia available?
I only got AP6 r2058 running.


Not yet.
We are working on new builds.
After additinal testing i will make them available.


We are up around r2167 currently, I am running a r2165 build on my 2 GPU's.

Yes, defenitely a bad hair day. Might be that spammer at beta.


You mean all 3 of them that showed up the same day, or were they all using the same IP address.

Dave Anderson (yes, that Dave Anderson) giveth – badges based on RAC – and Dave Anderson taketh – credit-new. The madness, errr I mean fun never stops at SETI@Home :-).


From John Sonntag
There was a bug in the php (does anyone ever run this stuff before it gets checked in to version control?) which was keeping it from working.
24) Questions and Answers : Windows : us.Intellitxt.com Why does bionic connect to this well know adware server? (Message 1486903)
Posted 40 days ago by Profile arkayn
With a fresh reboot, no browser running, boinc.exe and boincmgr.exe
is continually blasting data 4KB+ / second (and receiving 4KB+ / second)
to us.intellitxt.com, chewing up about 1/3 of my very limited (DSL) bandwidth.

us.intellitxt.com is a infamous advertising server and is usually only associated with web pages.

What's going on here? Surely this is not an isolated problem on my Win7-64
machine, but I have found no other postings in this forum for this issue.
Any help would be appreciated.

You probably have acquired a virus. BOINC and SETI should not be sending any data anywhere other than projects you have signed up for.


Or google.com if it is testing the internet connection.

Lets see if I can get my RAC back up again now that we have AP work.

I even updated my app to use on them.

Astropulse tasks aren't available for the next week or more. See https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=74200 for the news on that.


Actually they were just starting to get split when you posted this.

It only took a little over 52 hours for my Pentium (E5200)

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=7225420

to complete an AP task.

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=3413643091

I thought that was slow. But, then again, I was comparing it to one of my GTX780ti's.

That is Slow. However, anyone running the Stock AP App deserves what they get. Now, if you ran the Optimized AP APP on your slightly OCed E5200 you would complete one in about 10.5 hours...like mine, http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=3410271666
Run time: 37,704.22
Windows x86 rev 557, Don't Panic!, by Lunatics SSE2

Back when this host was running, http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=6864181 it was completing an AP in about 8 hours using AstroPulse_v6, v6.01 SSE3 (r546) on a very similar processor. I'm thinking about reviving that host as soon as APs are back as it was completing APs faster than in Win XP.


Slow would be the 7.27 android app on beta currently.

Basically, make certain that you install the Nvidia drivers first and then the AMD drivers.

I at one time had a GTX560 and a HD7750 in my gaming machine, eventually I went completely Nvidia as it does better here on SETI.

Has anyone woke up in the morning thinking that the world is a tucksedo and your just a brown pair of shoooooes! :))

Good morning world, here we are in March and alomst to daylight savings time again. I was just getting used to standard time and here we go switching back? :)) my thought is leave the clock alone and let them get a new life for the ones that want change. :)) One way I know is make happy hour at the first day in march and if anyone changes they are out on the street. :))

Cheers


I can't wait for DST, that means I don't have to keep mentally adding an hour to my cell phone time at work.

I guess I'm a sinner also. I just recently took action to increase my RAC. I have a pair of GTX760s and a pair of GT620s sitting idle because there's no linux MB app for them.

I put together some PCs from my junk box. A couple of Core2 Duos and a Pentium dual core. They're just fast enough to feed the GPUs. I have those CPUs doing MBs right now since there's no APs. It takes 3, 4 and 6 hours to do one MB for 35 to 100 credits.

I tried loading up an app from arkayn's site (Lunatics_x41g_linux64_cuda32.7z) to see if I could start crunching some MBs on them and ended up trashing just under a hundred MB tasks. (edit: ...on the last attempt. 174 total -- can't only download one MB task when I test it. Tried 3 times. Gave up.)

This next AP feeding frenzy is going to be a good one.

Edit2: And my slowest processor (pentium E5400) just got an AP? Estimated more than 46 hours to crunch? And the two GT620s are going to remain idle? Maybe the servers are just bench marking it and after this one CPU AP, it will NEVER send another CPU AP to this CPU? I hope this is the case.

When the APs start back up, I'm selecting NO CPU WORK on my slow processors to make sure of it.


Check the execute bit on the app, you got a permission denied error.

It's raining. Started about an hour ago. Nice steady patter, not a drizzle, not a torrential downpour. Just what we need, if it just keeps up for the rest of the day.....

And it pretty much did. "Official" gauge at the airport read 0.08 inch, but the level in my almost-empty pool rose at least 1/4 inch. Next storm comes in late tonight, revised forecast for the Fresno-Visalia area is 1.75 inch total. We'll take all we can get, just no hail, please, the fruit and nut trees are mostly still in bloom.....


The rain just reached my area as well, we are not expecting to get quite as much as you though.

...but maybe, it's a resend. :?

BTW:
I'm willing to help out testing new builds.
Do i have to register @ your board?


Yes, if you want to submit the timings, you can get the builds from Jason's site though.

It appears William is looking for Speed tests between the new build and the old build, http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?topic=163.msg3944#msg3944

If someone could preform a little testing, it would be appreciated. I've been running the new build for quite a while, no problems since using the new App.

The Bench tools are here, Test Tools - MultiBeam


People will have to be an alpha tester in order to see that thread.
