I was down to my last 7 GPU w/u's before I finally got a connection so my 1060's didn't go dry.

Cheers.

Thanks Mike.

Well after lugging my old Athlon x4 workstation this morning to the far end of my property and clearing old some old cables out, I can now get back online and have entertainment in my bedroom just in time for Xmas (now I just need a couple more HDMI cables).

Now I deserve another another beer or 3 after another sweaty morning.

Cheers.

"Scheduler request failed: HTTP internal server error"

There's certainly not much talking going on at all I think Richard. :-)

I hope that I can connect with the servers soon as my new 1060's are about to run out of work.

Cheers.

Looks nice Wiggo.
Even tough your command line values are little weird to me.

I'm just using the suggested command line from the SoG readme txt for mid range cards Mike, but if you can suggest better alternatives for the 1060's and 660's I'll give them a go. ;-)

Cheers.

Winning while now only drawing 245W from the wall (230v).

Cheers.

Yesterday my 2 new ASUS DUAL-GTX1060-O3G's arrived here, but it was too hot here by then to do anything with them.

By late morning today I had all the dust bunnies blown out of 4 PC's and 5 GPU's as well as swapping 7 GPU's around between those PC's.

My main rig (3570K powered) received the new 1060's while my 2nd rig (2500K @ 3.4GHz powered) gave up its 2 GTX 550 Ti's to make way for the main rig's old GTX 660's.

So far the 1060's look to be doing Guppies in half the time of the 660's and Arecibo work in 60% of the time (while using less power) so both rigs should show healthy improvements soon.

Another bonus of some upgrades is saving power.

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.

The 3570K's case went from pulling 290W from the wall with the 660's down to 245W with the 1060's.

I can certainly feel the cooler temps around my feet between them now.

Cheers.

G'afternoon everyone.

After blowing the dust bunnies out of 4 PC's here and moving around 7 GPU's, I'm now working away on my 3570K rig with 2 new 3GB GTX 1060's in it showing me what they can do.

Anyhow, after all of that I deserve a beer or 3 now. :-D

Cheers.

We actually hit 33C (felt like 32C) here today Grant, but a few beers here with a couple of mates followed by a few more down the hill with a few more, which was followed by a few more here with another mate (I got to remember to do a refill tonight).

But ATM I'm having a break while I strip out, clean and upgrade some PC's around here. :-D

Cheers.

We're about to get our 4th day in a row in the 30-32C range with more afternoon/evening storms. :-(

But my Xmas presents arrived here this morning, though I'll have to wait until it cools off before opening cases up to do a 4 way video swap.

Cheers.

Further to my readability problems - I use Firefox, both at home and work.
At home readability was poor, but at work it was OK-to-good so I had a prod around the many options, and found one that I hadn't spotted before....
Off the content - options page (http://about:preferences#content) is an "advanced" sub-page to select the fonts used, in the middle of this page is a tick box "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" - This was unticked at work, and ticked at home, so I tried ticking it at work, and readability went downhill fast, so I reverted to unticked at work, and unticked it at home whence readability dramatically improved.
It looks as though there is a "rogue" font being used by the new page formatting scripts. This actually ties up somewhat with what Raistmer & Richard have been seeing.

Thanks Rob, that fixed the malformed type font and compacted the page height.

Cheers.

That was just a good day Grant, usually there's only 2 or 3 bottles on the sink of a morning (or none if I'm having rum).

Anyhow I did my Good Friday run into town this morning while we getting our 1st taste of summer here (28C here at noon) and I've certainly got the taste for a beer or 3 now. ;-)

Cheers.

After my trip into town this morning the temp here is already at 28C (feels like 27C). :-O

Thankfully I live on top of the range as it low-mid 30's down the coastal side and mid-high 30's down the inland side. :-)

Cheers.

It's Thorsday again down under and Thor will likely put in another personal appearance (he's been doing well here the last 4 days).

Festivities will kick off here in about 4hrs.

All Hail Thor!!!

Cheers.
