Are wine drinkers allowed in the beer drinkers thresd?

Just so long as you don't expect me to have any. ;-)

BTW, there's not much difference in the way both are made. :-)

Well I think that I'll head off to bed after playing with 2 of my toys all day, g'nite.

Cheers.

Well half of them turned up anyway Grant and after 4 days of partying with their friends, I was glad when they left.

Since then I've been rolling back failed (or unwanted) Win10 upgrades (with a few more due next week) and playing around with and old PC and some GPU's.

I've also have a brew that needs to be bottled in the next 2 or 3 days.

Anyhow I might have a rum'n'lime now while I keep an eye on the 2 rigs that I've been playing around with today. ;-)

Cheers.

there are quite a few in front of you. ;-)



Same up here as well. There was a big protest over the math
and cyphering test, but Canada insisted that every applicant
for citizenship must know how to count way up to 12!




edit:
Canadians are funny like that....

Over here it's "how many stubbies are there in 6 cartons?". :-D

Cheers.

Limbaugh claiming lefties to get very violent if Trump wins.
As a left-handed, am offended; will be looking at where I can move to, not violence, should Trump win.

Well it's funny that as over here ATM a lot of U.S. citizens (as well as your highend celebrities) are checking out the property market over here as well as checking up on citizenship requirements, but you'll need to join the end of the cue as there are quite a few in front of you. ;-)

There's no way I could pick 3 let alone 30, but maybe I could make a short list of 300 or so. ;-)

Post the details, especially the computer id numbers as there is something very strange going on - no computer (without a massive GPU count) should have that many tasks in progress.

It's just Lionel doing his usually greedy cherry picking and the rest of us will be cleaning up his homeless Guppie mess for months to come. :-(

Cheers.

Thankfully my driver version means that I don't get those OpenCL MB tasks. :-)

It's the feedback about them as well as the wingmen aborts/timeouts on those particular tasks (and usually around about their last contact with this project after some years).

I'm looking forward to the new CUDA app/s Jason that I know you won't rush them out the door as those others were. ;-)

Cheers.

Sparrows in London have been in decline for many years now.

I walk in the park every day and never see any.

I could send you hundreds of the little buggers if you cover the freight Bernie. ;-)

Happy Birthday to your Daughter, Wiggo. :)
Hope she has a wonderful day!


+1, Happy (belated) B-Day to your daughter, Wiggo :)

Thanks & I'll pas it on Julie. ;-)

Thankfully only family made it home from the pub today, but it's an hour into Monday already.

[edit] I might even hang my "Gone Fishing" sign in the door. :-)

Cheers.

Well after 2 months of my 3570K rig not crunching due to its data drive crashing and by the time I got the RMA completed and back up running SETI, MB V8 had already been 3 weeks old, so its RAC was down to 4K from 38K running Lunatics MB V7.

Just running plain stock apps this rig had peaked at 28.8K RAC by the end of the 1st week in April.

Now that has steadily dropped in steps since.

I've been trying to get 6 weeks of steady RAC, which by old rights I should have by now, but after the last 4 weeks of sitting at a short 18K step, it now looks to be crashing down again, to 16K this time.

After 6 months of MB V8 I'm now totally convinced that Credit New is fatally screwed beyond hope (and only a mental defective could think otherwise).

Can anyone blame some people heading for greener pastures in other BOINC projects where their power bill goes further or just giving up all together?

The release of an in-mature stock Nvidia OpenCL MB app being dumped on the unsuspecting hasn't helped by a long shot either turning once stable PC's into BSOD or lagged hell which in turn just creates more pendings as more people turn away leaving tasks pending.

I'm sorry, but when will this stupidity stop and when will I hit a zero RAC? :-)

Cheers.

Happy Birthday to your Daughter, Wiggo. :)
Hope she has a wonderful day!


+1.

Thanks Lynn & Mike, I'll let her know (even if she thinks we're all a bunch of geeks). ;-)

Even though the "official" party was last night (just don't ask me when that finished, but it was sometime before 5:30am), it has been going for 4 days/nights so far. :-O

I'm just waiting for whoever still has it in them to turn back up again after an afternoon in town.

Meanwhile I'm just waiting for #3 son and #1 daughter to get home before deciding on whether to for pizzas down at the bottom pub or not (it could even be a home delivery). ;-)

In the meantime, my brother might be right and the new Coopers Lager wort being sold here (new red labeling & lid instead of green) is actually their newer "European" version, and I'm starting to think that he's right as my last 2 brews have now suffered from unexplained over foaming at fermentation start.

I just hope that in 8-9mths time that the taste hasn't changed, or I'll be awfully upset.

Oops, it seems that I'm off down the hill for dinner.

Have fun. :-)

Cheers.

I'm sorry, but it's been an extremely long day here, I thought that you meant you were doing 3 GPU tasks so forget my post. ;-)

Pretend that you were the advisor to President Donald Trump. What would you advise ?

Your mistake is assuming that Donald has advisors!

Exactly, and who actually wrote his wife's speech? Donald I bet. ;-)

... I'm getting sick of going away lately as when I get back I've either got to rollback or fix a lot of Win10 installs.

But I also soon know when a Win10 PC is connected to my network as it sucks the crap out of my old DSL connection.

So it's still Win7 for me until 2020 ATM.

Cheers.

@Wiggo
To alleviate the problem you are experiencing, I would direct you to some of my previous posts in this thread.  For expediency, I recommend initially viewing the second message.


In addition to third party software, there are two registry edits (mentioned in some of the articles referenced in my posts) which can be performed.  I installed these, as well as, the highly recommended GWX Control Panel Monitor back in Feb and since then, every advance by Win10 to enter my system has been rebuffed without any other intervention by me.

I created text files of these reg edits to avoid entering the registry directly.  If you'd like them, PM me.


I know very well how to keep my PC's Win10 free, but I also work on many other PC's around this area and I must also respect preferences of their users as well (even if it hurts my network when I have work on them here). ;-)

Cheers.

I've found that usually internet connection problems cause these to happen, the bigger the problem the more you get (but they're in red so no penalty is involved with them), and I wouldn't mind betting that if it gets really bad then it causes those hosts with thousands of ghosts on them.

Cheers.

Stop using the iGPU and you'll very likely find that your problems will disappear.

[Edit] Or try 2 less CPU tasks.

Cheers.

Tell me how you can respect someone who has absolutely no respect for anyone else but himself?
Perfect description of Hillary...........

Now come on DG, isn't your basic politician over there corrupt anyway?

That's the way your political was setup in the 1st place wasn't it?

It's just the level of corruption, hatred and stupidity that varies. ;-)

Cheers.

Well I've been away again with C.W.#1 down to the warm climate for a week and got home to my kids (and their friends/other halves) turning up (invading?) for my youngest daughter's birthday party tomorrow that was arranged to be held here (plus whoever else is still to turn up for it and the pile of spare mattresses is rapidly going down).

But I did get another beer brew down that I'll get bottled before heading away again. ;-)

Cheers.

Another multi thousand WUs in progress host.

No PM sent.

1's like that I'm guessing are having some sort of internet/network problem that is producing ghosts, but until we can chat with 1 of them we'll never know for sure.

Cheers.
