Now I'm a bit down.

Once upon a time there was a Setiland. All people ware treated equally and there was a feeling of harmony around.

One day TheLimit was raised!

Most people noticed but nothing... But the evil was lurking around. An AP hoarder amidst us Seitzens. The universe kept on expanding as time passed by.

But one day - The AP stopped to appear. That was not evident immediately. Everyones cache was filled with a mixture of MB and AP - so nobody realised that until it was too late. No one got no AP anymore. Their caches were run out of AP.

Except for one - there was this evil hoarder. He had set a spell to the magic internet page and made sure that hed'd get no MB. This way he got all the AP in the wolrd!

Oh the groaning and moaning every morning, throughout the day and every evening. No greater evil could have hit us - people said!

Some went to the extent that they switched to another project - some waited their mouths shut.

Time passed by...

And there was this one morning when all remaining GPU coolers whirred so beautifully and all the worlds results loked a bit more shiny. Something must have happened said everyone - no one knew what.

But the a knight in an Arctic Silver IV shining body came and told every person still in the project that the CPU cooler of the hoarder had caught a fire and caused a meltdown of those horrible AP hoarding GPU cores and that the King of the Setiland had issued a permanent order: NO ONE (Tim) WITH A SETTING THAT SAYS AP ONLY AND NOT ALLOW ANY OTHER TYPE OF WORK SHALL HAVE A LIMIT OF 1 TASK A DAY INSTEAD OF 100 PER GPU AND CPU.

The people hoorrared for a total of three days and .....

--

Well - the children are now asleep. Mee too in a an hour or so.

I just looked at at the tasks of another top 10 cruncher and was kind of disappointed. When running AP only I could get 240 000 a day - but I do not want to. I have AP as a preference, but atleast I have this "send work from other projects when available" on.

How would you explain if You had N hunderd AP only? (N is a big number)


Am I cheating somehow?

I don’t think so.

Is there somewhere written that I will take MB wu’s or AP wu’s?

I don’t think so.

I can do whatever I want to my preferences, asking no one what to do because ARE MINE.
No one will tell me if I will download 800 AP’s or 800 MB WU’s
Yes I can take 800 Ap tasks and I will do it again because the server allow, and it is legal.
We all wanted 100 wu’s per Gpu as I remember, and now we are complaining?

By the way…
This machine is going to retire at about one month or two.
We have here at the office a new build with dual xeon, and 8 Gpus.I will install seti and run 1000 AP tasks.

And a question to petri33…
If you were at 2nd position, and I was at 3rd, will you have those questions?

Another lot that also annoy me are those that as soon as AP's are being split abort their MultiBeam work just so they can fill up on AP's.

Cheers.


Sorry guys this was a test we make to see the up’s and down’s of the RAC.

No MultiBeam work was abandoned.

This will not happen again.

This is a promise.

Hi !

Four days ago. my modem stopped to function. I called the internet server (Bell Canada) and they sent me a new one. Since I restart the connexion with Seti, it seems that I can not send you the results of the works. Plus, Seti give me a new user number. I spoke with Bell Canada (Server service) and my internet connexion is OK. But having completed 10 works for you and nothing has been transferred for validation. The forums access are functioning properly.

Please, I need suggestions...

Thank you.


Disable the internal firewall of the modem to see what happen.

Thank you for the info Claggy....I saw your post today.

I will try 7.2.32 Mike, if it become ''Recommended version''

Free one core of your CPU, if you use your CPU at 100%, and see if it is working.

I hope that after that, they will clean the database from stuck wu’s.

I have one from 2010 at my error list.
