I just looked at my profile page and realized it doesn't show that I'm a
seti donor. I think our profile pages should show that with the green star
or with a status in the column on the right, or something. How do we get
that added? Anyone?

Edit: Okay, I just saw that if you click on "Account data; View" you can
see that I'm a donor. But I wonder how many people go that far when they
look at a profile.

Oh well. Never mind.


Anybody not you goes straight to your account data page.

But, you can also view when how many donations you have made and when the last one was by looking a bit further down on your account page.

Huh, nope, it says 192 Unified, whatever that means.

Unified Shaders = CUDA cores.

Perhaps GPUz is only reading the number per SM. The 760 192-bit card is listed as having 6 SM & 6*192 = 1152


Looking at my EVGA GTX 760, I have 1152 shaders with a 256 bit bus width. Direct Compute 5.0

GPU clock: 980
Memory: 1502
Boost: 1033

...and again a bunch of updates, most seem harmless/useful.

Only the BIG update for IE11 concerns me, because it bundles a lot of other things with it... :?


Since I disabled IE on my system, I just hide that update now.

As it was just an observation nothing more, I will leave this thread to go whichever way it wants.


As long as it does not go completely off track, I don't care all that much.

Wind over 42 mph killed the power here on Thorsday, that was fixed in about 10 minutes.


The rest of my canopy is taking a beating currently, the part that was down was moved quite a ways from the force of the wind.

I'm still waiting to see the new Update Client for April appear. Every month since July or August has had one. It will likely be in this upcoming Tuesday's pile of updates, but the past few months.. between the 1st and 3rd is when those months have had their new update clients released, so why not this month as well? Oh, right.. because I bet there's so much new crap being added in these iterations that it falls into the category of being released on Patch Tuesday. Just my hunch. Guess we'll see how that pans out.


Guess what showed up once again, our "favorite" compatibility patches un-hidden by them once again.

Or you could use the built in Windows Image found in Backup on your W7 computer.

The irritating thing about that is that it requires a 1TB drive to backup to, even if the Windows partition is just 120GB.

I see that Macrium allows for individual partition imaging and cloning, so you can store multiple images or partitions on a 1TB drive.


I just used Reflect to move my Win7 install from a 90GB SSD to a 250GB SSD.
59) Questions and Answers : Windows : Seti version 8 (Message 1776637)

To at least answer your original questions about stock versus non-stick, this shows that you are running non-stock applications:
06/04/2016 09:02:55 | SETI@home | Found app_info.xml; using anonymous platform

You're probably running the Lunatics optimized application(s), and with those in place you are always telling BOINC which applications it should run with.
Which means that whenever a new application is released, BOINC won't automatically download it, but you will have to download & update it by hand.

If you ever feel it's not really necessary anymore and you want to run with the stock applications, that's possible. To do so, exit BOINC completely, navigate to the Seti directory under the BOINC data directory (in you case that's at E:\Programme\BOINC\data\projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\) and rename or remove the app_info.xml file. When done, restart BOINC, and reset the Seti project. (e.g. BOINC Manager, View, Advanced view, Projects, select Seti, Reset, (and probably acknowledge)).

BOINC will then start downloading the stock applications and get work for it.



Thanks for the explanation. I remember i made something with this Lunatics-thing you mentioned, i think it makes processing WU faster or something ?
What would you say, should i stick with it, or just remove the app_info.xml - file to get the updates automatically in future ?


And for Lunatics, you need to update the version that you installed.

Might be because I grew up there.

I grew up in John Day - a wee bit further North.


I went through there once, on my way to Pendleton. We went over to Lakeview and went up.
