OK, who stepped on the Cricket. Both my links show no activity but downloads are working. Anyone know how to find the router they're using?

You probably have the correct link....
The graphs would not load at all a while ago, and now that they have come back online, check the time stamp. I don't think they are updating the data yet.


Looks like they ran out of ink again.

Call Blocker Free

Anybody that calls or texts me from a spammy number immediately goes into this apps black list and I never see a message or hear a ring from them again,

Probably either missing the OpenCL drivers for the video or have an unsupported version for BOINC

I currently have a iLo 32" TV, one of my computers has a TV tuner card installed and that allows it to do DVR duty.

Sound output is through a optical connection to a Sony 7.1 receiver.

I guess I'm going with the underdogs today...

The Ravens and then the Panthers!


And they both lost.

This cold weather is pissing me off as my water pipe is still not buried completely and I keep losing my water pressure.


I would keep a low flow out the tap to make sure it would (not) freeze.

That is what I do, I just have a trickle out of a bathroom faucet to prevent some of My pipes from freezing, a faucet at the farthest point from where the water enters My piping.


Imagine my surprise this morning when I checked the water meter and found it turned completely off.

I normally do keep a tap open, but forgot on our winter snowstorm day.

Luckily I no longer have the broken main leaking 7500 gallons a month.

Happy New year, now hopefully they can get everything back up and running again.

Drove through blowing snow to work this morning, heard they closed the road behind me for a while.

Much better road conditions going home 13 hours later though.

The following link may be of use to you:

More specifically, you will want this for CUDA.

The only GPU app currently for Linux is Astropulse,..."


Is there a technical reason that prevents the development or porting of a GPU app for MB WUs under Linux, or is it a case of no one taking or having the time to do it?


Mostly it is nobody really has the experience to port it to Linux and Mac. Jason plans on working on it eventually, but is busy dealing with other stuff currently.

The only GPU app currently for Linux is Astropulse, and with the problems the database has had recently that would account for not getting any work for the GPU.

Also make certain that you are allowing AP work in your preferences.

Wow, what about those Cowboys today?

Bad news for the Hawks but hardly fatal for the Hawks


Only until the Seahawks blew out the Cardinals tonight.

If Seattle and the Cowboys win next week, Seattle will get the #1 seed.
37) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : GPU unsupported? (Message 1616683)
Posted 20 Dec 2014 by Profile arkaynProject donor
So i read this sticky post "NVidia driver problems which cause computation errors (also for Kepler (6xx)style GPU's)".

Im assuming its safe to say my dual EVGA 660Ti's will NOT work with this program?

My question is why only these particular GPUs? And why is it on the list of supported CUDA GPU's if its not actually supported?

Just curious.


That warning is from 2 years ago, the current drivers work just fine with GTX-660's.

No, its not possible atm.
It would require new science apps.
Joe, Raistmer and or Jason can explain this much better.

My understanding is that the SETI analysis is not conducive to paralleling. I'll leave it to the Lunatic Pros to chime in.

What do you think we do on GPUs? They are parallel devices, par excellence.

SETI probably isn't appropriate for the old-style symmetric multi-processor (SMP) style of parallel programming, but it's been suggested that OpenCL could use multiple CPUs in the same way that it uses multiple compute units within a GPU.

For traditional (x86-style) CPUs, there probably isn't any point of incurring the extra overhead of the middleware - we have efficient enough CPU applications to perform the work required in a timely fashion on single cores.

If OpenCL drivers/runtime support are available, there might be some benefit of from running multi-core applications on Atom and similar devices, which might struggle to meet deadlines in single-core mode. Recent versions of BOINC already have the capability to schedule OpenCL on CPUs, though I'm not aware of anyone testing that facility yet.


John over at Collatz does have a OpenCL CPU app available.

The trouble is that all these people work for foreign call centres where your own countries legislation has no legal effect. A lot are in Eastern Europe or the far East. The local governments there have no interest in stopping it because it brings income into their country.

Modern phones can block all "number witheld" and "international" calls from getting through. I only give my mobile phone as a contact point not my land line, I also registered with the TPS, and am ex-directory, it all helps. But as more and more people buy online via the web, more people give their home number, and don't tick the box "don't pass on my details to associated companies".


The problem with that is most of them use IP based phone numbers so they can show as calling from anywhere they want.

I have gotten only a little bit of rain so far.
