Did the most of the channels for the 8 data sets have mostly errors? It looks like they stopped loading more data to be split for now.
Let's hope they noticed the errors and are looking into it & that the MB channels splitters don't get hung up on those data sets.

I didn't see any without errors, but then I may not have see all that were loaded today.

Cheers.

Or they could just let AP credit fall to the same ratio of payout that used to be before the roll out on MBV7. Used to be nobody wanted AP work untill the new MB version payed less. Then everyone started likeing AP work. I have a feeling it will be back to par for both types of work.

We can hope so anyway. ;-)

Cheers.

... only two computers? I don't understand. How can someone have only two computers...

$

Yep that $ keeps me from building another one to replace my aged I7 920.
At one time I was running 4 machines. But only 3 for the last year or so.

Well I won't be building another one, but GPU upgrades are another story with the 2 that I do have (and then I may fire up the old test rig again for another short test session with the old cards). ;-)

Cheers.

I find the ratio of active hosts to active users interesting. It shows that, on average, each active user has more than 6.26 active hosts.

I feel like a slacker with only 2 (3 if you count my phone, but I haven't let it do any Main work in 2-3 months, so I don't know if it does count in these numbers).

2 is enough isn't it? :-)

Cheers.

Another disgusting news story here this morning. :-(

http://www.news.com.au/world/rotherham-police-council-ignored-child-abuse-reports-for-16-years-in-that-time-1400-children-were-raped/story-fndir2ev-1227038259377

FOR more than 16 years an English town has been home to a terrible secret: Hiding the systematic beating, rape and trafficking of some 1400 children.

Children were doused with petrol and threatened with being set alight. Guns were pointed at them. They were forced to watch other children being subjected to violent gang rapes.

Nobody cared.

Rotherham, in England’s north, is a city of 250,000 people. So how could it fail to protect so many children, many as young as 11, from being so ruthlessly exploited over such a long period?

I hope that all those involved get locked up and the keys thrown away.

More stupidity from the great land of the gun. :-(

http://www.news.com.au/world/girl-nine-accidentally-kills-shooting-instructor-with-uzi-at-arizona-shooting-range/story-fndir2ev-1227038261240

AN Arizona shooting instructor was accidentally shot and killed while showing a nine-year-old girl how to use an automatic Uzi, authorities said.

Charles Vacca, 39, of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, died on Monday shortly after being airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Mohave County sheriff’s officials said.

Vacca was standing next to the girl at the Last Stop outdoor shooting range in White Hills when she pulled the trigger and the recoil sent the gun over her head, investigators said.

WTF, a 9yr old girl being taught to use an Uzi?

Well the outcome had to be expected I suppose where idiots want their guns so badly.

Well it looks like those files to be split at the bottom of the list, that have been there for 2-3 months now, look like they'll be there even longer seeing as new files are already being added again over the top of them again (those new files could've waited until tomorrow) and the 1st new file has 3 AP splitters again tied up plus that file only seems to be producing errors as well. :-(

Cheers.

Well in our 1st Tri-Series Tournament ODI match against Zimbabwe resulted in a crushing display beating the home team by 198 runs.

We play South Africa today in the 2nd match and hopefully it'll be a much closer game than the last.

Cheers.

Just stick to 1 that only has one beefy 12V rail in it, leave the dual/multi-rail 1's alone.

so Wiggo you any using 850 watt and that's enough ? could i ask how many core you have going at one time and you do have 2 GPU's in it as well right ?
Are they expensive ? the PSU's from antec

That Antec would set you back around $100aud Glenn and well worth it.

Cheers.

The Cooler Power brand is regarded as a "Yum Cha"/"No Name" supplier of cheap and much over rated power supplies (usually they'll max out at half their rating, or go "POP!"). :-(

I mainly use Corsair TX or Antec High Current PSU's myself for PC's that are required for high CPU/GPU loads (my 2 my main rigs use Corsair TX 850's & my old test rig is a 620W Antec High Current Gamer)

[edit] Just check their electrical spec's out. ;-)

[edit II] Link fixed.

Cheers.

Hello everyone.

Well after a morning of catching up on all my domestic duties after a week of bad weather and a lot of PC work, I've decided that Beer O'clock today can start 30mins early.

Bottoms up!

Cheers.
