As been noted.

There are a big differens between elections!

The crowd counts are identical, by my presidential order DJT!

Yes, others of his party are claiming "fake" as well, but those of us who actually watched both P.P.'s live can certainly tell that those pic's don't lie. ;-)

The thickness of the dark green part at the beginning of a file being split bar will indicate how many splitters are working on that 1 file and sometimes all of them can be working on just 1 file. ;-)

That's probably it- there are so many channels in a GBT file that a single channel is too small to see. And all the GBT work I've got (other than re-sends) is all from the one file.

So that little sliver of dark green at the start of blc2_2bit_guppi_57423_32060_HIP53824_0017 isn't a single splitter, but all of them on the one file.

So many channels per tape it's hard to tell how many are working a given tape, and the resolution is too fine to tell visually ...

Any mouse over magnifier app will help there if required. ;-)

It certainly looks that way Betreger.

I must comment though, that these threads are so much more interesting and intellectual without a certain person's silly rantings cluttering them up.

It maybe too early for Beer O'clock, but as C.W. No.3 says, "It's never too early to be a Pirate", so I'll try it her way and have a rum'n'something to wash the coffee taste out of my mouth. ;-)

Why do you move at all if i may ask ?

Cheers :)

Well 1 must get up to feed/water dog, get a beer or 3 and go to the boys' room when required even when doing nothing Mike. ;-)

BTW Mike, I now have 4 GTX 1060 3GB's humming away here now, but I may have some heating issues this coming winter.

Cheers.


I see.

I noticed earlier today while testing CPU apps it was getting colder and colder because my GPU wasn`t running.
Testing has to be done on an idle computer. :(

That's why I leave those sort of things to those with more endurance than myself, just thinking about next winter is already testing mine.

Damn! It's still too early for Beer O'clock. :-(

Cheers.

o splitters running could be the v8.23 ATI tasks going through. I seen a pile of resends from that earlier.

Server Status page still shows only 1 GBT channel being split, but over night most of the work I got was Guppie, so the earlier almost-all Arecibo downloads have been offset by the last few hours of downloads. And almost all of it is new work, very few resends.


And so far this morning I haven't had to play with the application settings to keep the cache full (fingers crossed).

I do not know if it is just me, but every time I look I see 7 channels of GBT data being split???? or am I looking somewhere you are not?

The thickness of the dark green part at the beginning of a file being split bar will indicate how many splitters are working on that 1 file and sometimes all of them can be working on just 1 file. ;-)

Doing 1 task at a time here, my 1060's rarely use above half of their maximum power rating.

Now that, you'll notice on your power bill. ;-)

The difference it makes to your power bill is going to be very very small and the new power supply will be dead before you will have actually saved anything.

Save your money and stick with what you have until you have to replace it. ;-)

It's certainly a lot brighter in here now Grant, I may even get a chance to wash down the metal frame of my workbench tomorrow and get that back in here before I go to the post office and collect a few parcels.

I also swapped out the 26" HD TV in here for a 42" Full HD job and I'm just sitting back watching the cricket while enjoying a couple of rum'n'limes before bed.

Cheers.


I'd like a bigger TV but I don't have the space for it. Well I hardly even watch TV really. Some PBS and discovery channel is about all.

Well doing all that work finally had my spine telling me that enough was enough and laying me out for 2 days. :-(

Having the 42" there was great as I could read the text on it from 18' away where I was laid up, I couldn't do that with the 26".

I can actually move with no "pins & needles" or sharp stabbing pains so far this morning, but I'll just take it easy again today (trying hard to ignore what still needs to be done here).

Sunday Beer O'clock is still 4hrs away so I better have another coffee.

Cheers.

Petri.........
I do notice that you have overtaken me by a few thousnd creds in the current challenge.
Nice work, my friend.


Thank you. I must remind you that it is winter here and the house needs all the warmth a purring computer can give.

Petri

Congratulations Petri.

I know whose power bill I'd rather pay. ;-)

Where were the flag waving, cheering crowds and V.I.P.'s?

That would have to be the smallest and quietest P.P. that I've ever seen by a long way.

2009 on top, 2017 on bottom, not much hope in America today

That's probably why I could quite clearly hear the "Boos" over the now and again "Cheers" during the parade.

The parade itself will likely go down as the greatest non event of this century.

Guy, and others like him, have just got to learn to live with the fact that the Donald is the most unpopular U.S. President in history, and a picture is worth more than a thousands words.

Cheers.

The 2500K's case with the 550Ti's in it pulled 330W at the wall and with the 660's now in it it's now only pulling 315W.

Now with the 1060's its only pulling 270W.

Of course that is on 230V so those numbers won't be as good on 110V.

Cheers.
