For one, that version of BOINC is fairly old and most likely has some bugs.

Try at least 7.2.42.

All of my uploads are going through just fine.

Posted 97 days ago by Profile arkayn
My 760 is running around 61 to 67 depending on the indoor temp.

It is also above the 670 in the case.

Both are EVGA, but only the 760 has the ACX cooling.


I'm thinking about 2 x EVGA GTX750Ti FTW.

How are your CPU & case temps?


I don't crunch on the CPU, so those temps are quite normal.

Hi Uli

I'd be happy to get some Tee's and then re-distribute within UK.

Just let me know what the costs per each shirt will be and the shipping costs for maybe 25, 50 and 100 pcs and then we can go from there.

regards
Tim
Founder, UK BOINC Team

PS PM me for my email addy :)


Looks like this idea has died - no-one has got in touch and no posts since 9th April.....

Oh well.... :(


Uli has just been real busy lately, she should get back into the flow of the forums shortly.

If you shut down BOINC and then restart it, does it detect the GPU's?

Guys, the data directory is the root directory of the d: drive, something that Windows doesn't like. I have detailed before in another post how to fix that, but can't link to it as I swipe this from my phone.

Edit: thanks Arkayn.


No problem, I did a google search for GPU detection failed :error type 1 and found that thread.

Correct it's a desktop, the processer does have a gpu, but I'm running all graphics from a dedicated video card. I'm not too sure how I would turn it off. S, no I haven't disabled it. Or I haven't purposely. The video card is Geforce 8800 GTS with the most recent driver (9.18.13.3523) There is a Radon R7 in the mail, so there'll be a new set of hardware and drivers to deal with next week. I reinstalled the manager with out the services, but still not detection of a gpu.

The VirtualBox was for other Bionic programs, but I'm not running them any more. Is that causing an issue?

That is another known issue as documented in this thread.
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=9088#53445

Easiest solution is to make a new folder on that drive, move all the BOINC contents into that folder and do another reinstall and point to the new folder.

Probably the easiest fix would be to disable the benchmark entirely.

This is what I have in my cc_config.xml file. It goes into the BOINC data folder.

Hey guys, I just changed my motherboard and popped in a new processer, not I'm overwhelmed with computation errors and my gpu disappeared. (it's the same card as I had before.) after a few reinstalls, I cant fetch tasks.

any ideas?

You installed BOINC as a service, that does not allow you to use the GPU.

You will need to uninstall BOINC, then reinstall and go into the advanced options and deselect the service install option.

I was also cut off from lunatics.kwsn.net, the DNS servers for two different ISPs were not able to resolve it and at the time I checked yesterday downforeveryoneorjustme.com was also unable to. However, using a Google public DNS did work:

>nslookup lunatics.kwsn.net 8.8.8.8
Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address: 8.8.8.8

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: lunatics.kwsn.net
Address: 63.247.72.178


I already had the IP address in my hosts file but it was commented out. Enabling it restored my access to the site.

I had to change one of my DNS servers a couple of days ago as I was unable to load any sites except for a couple that I had in cache. Once I added back in the google DNS, all site worked just fine again.

I'm surprised that http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ urge me to update to boinc ver. 7.2.47. Because when you look at "all version" is the next version is 7.3.11 (development (March 10, 14)) and the recommended is 7.2.42 (28 February 14)


There is no 7.2.47 build, 7.2.42 is the most recent stable build.

59) Message boards : Cafe SETI : How do those of yous who live on the Ring of Fire feel? (Message 1499988)
Posted 119 days ago by Profile arkayn
I live in Oregon, two blocks from the sea. If you live here, it's part of life. The recent activity has worried me some. The tsunami sirens will only go off if there's time to evacuate. The rule is: if you feel it, run for it; the sirens won't be activated. Believe it or not, some towns have chosen to turn their sirens off completely, to "save money," with the excuse that other means of communication will warn folks. That's a joke. We held a tsunami drill with an airplane droning overhead, making announcements, and you couldn't understand a word, due to echo. Duh! They just don't want tourists alarmed by the regular tests of the sirens. I spoke with a TV crew that was down here filming a story, and to a person, they said if they lived here, they'd want a siren.

I've lived inland, and have felt several fairly large ones, including one from Seattle, but most local. That video of the bison running is very interesting and disturbing. We're 300 years overdue here at the coast, according to geological records. Guess if it happens, it happens, and we'll deal with it as best we can. The upside is that we'll have front row seats to a major historical event. Not that I want to, mind you.

Additionally, the video displayed above was actually taken more than two weeks before the 30 March 2014 earthquake that triggered fears of an upcoming eruption at Yellowstone and shows bison running into the park, not away from it:
Leo Leckie, a sales associate of the nonprofit Yellowstone Assn. ... shot the video, which lasts 1 minute and 9 seconds and was originally posted March 14 on his Facebook page under the title, "Yellowstone bison on the run for the joy of Spring."

"Those bison were running for the sake of running," Leckie said in an interview. "There was nothing chasing them. There was no mudslide. They were just running."

Added Leckie: "And they were running into the park, not away from it."

As I mentioned recently in another thread, the only quake I was aware of as it happened was a few years ago. I happened to be awake for no good reason and I heard stuff rattling a little. Didn't feel anything, but I thought "that must have been an earthquake!" It was 4am and the news was just coming on, so I turned on the TV and in a few minutes they confirmed it: a 4.1 centered near Pingree Grove, west of Elgin.

There have been two or three others in my lifetime, but I didn't notice them when they happened.

A tornado went through town when I was in 4th grade. About the only damage was to the roof of the Racquet Club. I was under my desk at school. My mother was in a Chinese restaurant within a mile of the Racquet Club. The staff didn't say anything until she left.


These are the ones that I have felt.
