However the southern Hemisphere is without a receiver. (for Seti@home)

For now.

Actually there is the Parkes Radio Telescope which has recently discovered swarm of hundreds of nearby galaxies behind the center of the Milky Way and also the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory which will become part of the ASKAP Radio Telescope.

Cheers.

We made our adjusted forecast max of 27C (was 26C) here today, but the windchill is over the place (varying from felt like 25C-28C depending on the gust at the time), and it looks like we're on target for overnight rain (it's lucky that I caught up with the mowing this morning).

Cheers.

I'm about over driving ATM as I've driven more kilometres in the last 8wks than I've done in the previous 4yrs. :-O

I'm just waiting now for the end of office hours (an hour away) so I can head down to the roadhouse and get some more mower fuel, then its just waiting for the grass to dry enough from the heavy dew this morning before trying to get it back under control again (heavy overcast here again this morning).

Normally I'd say "Beer O'clock in 2.5hrs", though that hasn't been the case lately, but it'll happen at some time today. ;-)

Cheers.

Our 1st month of the year here in the highlands down under (and 2nd month of summer) produced an average low of 12.5C with an average high of 25C and received 143.5mm of rain.

So temps were down by 3C while being 50% up on the rain.

Cheers.

Just in case you go with those drives.

Those WD Blue drives only have a 2yr warranty on them, shy not pay a little bit more for the Black versions as they carry a 5yr warranty and are a little faster. ;-)

I've just recently did a did a very rare RMA on a Black drive that was 4yrs & 10mths old (it spent its life under heavy use). :-)

You can un-hide your through your online SETI preferences or give us a direct link to 1 of the PC's you're having problems with, seeing your PC's gives no personal information to anyone (check mine out for an example of what others see), but if they wern't hidden your problem could've been fixed days ago.

If you can't do that then it's pointless for you asking for help.

Cheers.

Good Australia Day everyone.

A few beers have already gone down and now it's time to fire up the BBQ and then throw some sausages and sliced onions on it.

Enjoy your day.

Cheers.

My "Tasks" are not updating on the page even though I am downloading, crunching, and reporting...and my total credits and RAC are going up.

That is simply because the replica database is offline.

54F at 8am here, yet only a few days ago it was 20F ......

We have bush fires in Australia, Eastern USA under 3-6 feet of snow, and irrational temperature fluctuations in Europe. With all this heating and cooling going on, no wonder the earths surface is cracking up and we have more and more earthquakes. El Nino and his wife El Nina are flexing their muscles and are not happy.

Hope we invent a star drive shortly, I'll volunteer to go!

Before European settlement our bush use to burn every 1-2yrs and up until about 15yrs ago we use to have regular fuel reduction burns during winter.

Nearly all of our native flora requires fire to propagate, but since the "Greenies" put a stop to those regular fuel reduction burns a decade or so back that fuel has been allowed to build up greatly intensifying those fires we do get now and that is now endangering our native flora because they're not capable of surviving such intense heat.

So you can't blame the weather for our current bushfires that we now have here as only the stupid "Greenies" are to for blame them. Personally they should all made to go and fight those uncontrollable fires with a McLeod tool & a pump pack just to see if they can survive the experience instead of us volunteers going out and trying to put out their mistakes.

Other than that we're still getting temps in the low to mid 20C's and rather a lot of that wet stuff falling here in the highlands.

Cheers.

"BOINC replica database carolyn Running"

And, still the same problem. Next step?

It might be running, but if you look to the right you'll see that it's still offline. ;-)

India finally won a match (after a lot of loses) winning by 7 wickets with 2 balls to spare against us tonight (maybe they got sick of seeing the bad stats against them) and stopped our continuous unbeaten record at home at 18 wins (the last was 13).

This ODI series now stands as the highest scoring international series anywhere yet and being the 1st to break the 3000 run mark with 3159 runs scored during it.

But I guess that you'd get that with both #1 & #2 ranked teams playing each other. ;-)

Cheers.

Posted 22 days ago by Profile Wiggo
Hi,
I'm trying to run an gtx260 and a gtx750ti in the same computer but need to use driver version 340 as it's the latest the gtx260 still supports.

I'm not sure if the version 8 GPU app is still in beta or not but will I be able to run SETI GPU tasks on this computer in future?

....

That's not a good combination to run as both cards are totally different in so many ways and I'd suggest dumping that GTX 260 as the GTX 750Ti is so much quicker.

Cheers.

If the beer here isn't at -2C then it's not fit to drink Chris. ;-)

Half the beer would get to warm to drink if we did that. ;-)

Oh, that's right, most of you chaps drink warm beer. :-O

Actually it's a false positive (that can happen a lot) and you should have that folder exempt from being scanned.

Also without that file you won't be doing any cuda50 GPU work. ;-)

Cheers.
