That's a good 1 Guy. ;-)

How does anyone know what Don is going to do when he keeps changing his mind and words (I couldn't call them policies, mindless rants is more like it) every few hours?

He can't even keep hang on to his own staff members now let alone those who were backing him.

But he's certainly the butt of more jokes about how stupid people can be, over here, and the comedians are loving him for content. :-)

Cheers.

When you (and Glenn) say "you", I assume you think the entire USA is responsible. Correct?

I think that I said, "you guys" and "yous" (plural), so that would be correct then, but if I said, "you", you would be incorrect. ;-)

I can't answer for Glenn though. :-D

Cheers.

@ Wiggo you country would create much good will in North America if you took him back.

Or silence him, perhaps a nice long tax fraud term and forfeiture?

Well seeing as he gave up being an Aussie to become a Yank back in 1985 there's not a great deal we can do with him these days. But you guys did welcome him with open arms though when yous could've said no. :-D

Cheers.

It's now showing the OpenCL component to the driver, but your extra long GPU running times still remain, your Arecibo times are up to 3.5 times longer than mine.

So I'll ask again, how many tasks are you doing per GPU?

Are you constantly monitored the GPU speeds to see if you're getting any down clocking while processing and also the temps they are running at?

Also, how many CPU cores are you using? And what else is the PC used for?

Cheers.

I reckon that I could squeeze a few in for you Grant, do you want them with today's lunchtime session, tonight's session, or a bit of both?

30mins to go!

Cheers.

Can we be on topic? :)

Do you mean that Donald wouldn't make things worse on the world stage? :-O

Good day,
I am trying to understand why my 780s are don g so bad?
Any advice would be appropriated.
Thank you

Looking at the GPU listing you see it is Missing OpenCL;
[2] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti (3072MB) driver: 368.81
That probably means you are using the M$ Driver instead of the nVidia driver.
Since you don't have OpenCL, you can't use the OpenCL App which is much faster on the GUPPIs than the current Stock CUDA Apps. You might try installing the driver and using the OpenCL App.

There's more to it than just that TBar as I'm just using the same stock CUDA app myself on lesser hardware and most of those GPU tasks that I checked were Arecibo w/u's that are blown out and not Guppi w/u's. ;-)

Cheers.

There are some very sick people around here

Possibly many are listeners of Faux News headed of course by Murdoch who your country won't take back.

Can you blame us for not wanting him back? :-O

Cheers.

Now that's very strange as it can't even keep up with my 3570K with dual 660's running only 1 task per GPU. :-O

How many tasks per GPU are you running?

Also some of those GPU times are very well blown out. Have you constantly monitored the GPU speeds to see if you're getting any down clocking happening during processing? Starting clocks look fine.

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, from another miserable morning in the highlands.

I'm just getting a couple of domestic chores out of the way this morning so that I can enjoy Weekend Beer O'clock, which will get underway in 4hrs time.

Cheers.

Thorsday went well here and it stayed dry (against all forecasts). (Y)

Now to prepare for the weekend. :-)

All Hail Thor!!!

And who's been stirring the Chinese up lately I wonder?

And who could possibly stir them up even more?

Cheers.

Wiggo...

Stirring up the Chinese, Tsar Putin, Jihadists, Nazi's, Marxists?

They do need a bit of 'Stirring Up'.

Why not?

So you're not content yet with the problems that your country is already causing around the world and so you'll just try and destabilise another part of it?

There are some very sick people around here. :-(

Cheers.

Download and run either EVGA Precision X or MSI Afterburner and turn the fan/s up on that 560 so it's temps can come down and if the case is built like an oven then remove the side panel.

My GTX 560Ti will start to throw errors once it hits 74C.

Cheers.

We received 322.5mm (12.7") here this winter, which is suppose to be our "dry season", we're usually lucky to get a tenth of that (even the rabbits are wearing gumboots).

The average temps were also down by 1.8C over the same period.

I wonder what has our "wet season" got in store for us?

Cheers.

G'morning everyone.

I've been up to my neck in laptops since my last post, but I just finished the last of them (until the next 1 turns up anyway and hopefully not before this weekend) so Beer O'clock today will happen down the bottom pub.

Anyhow I've got a few other things to get done in the next 2.5hrs so enjoy those drinks (I know that I will today). ;-)

Cheers.

"I guess it really comes down to how the money is invested. I think I could benefit more financially in the long run from that $19,500 cash with a wise money advisor. But again, I think the concept of solar power is a win-win for everyone when the technology improves so most people can look at it and say, yeah, that makes sense."


Hi Gordon,
We did not have $19,500 cash to spend, far from it. We did a "zero down" thing. 30% of the total price was covered by a refund from the IRS at tax time. The remainder, or 70%, was financed for 12 years at 3.99%. If we would have had cash so as not to need a loan, I'm sure we could have gotten a better than 3.99% return on that large a sum. :)

BUT, if we invested the $19,500 cash, assuming we had it, we would still be paying about $2184/year for electricity from SDG&E instead of the $378 we pay now for electricity.


Maybe I should get an estimate on the cost of setting this up on my house. I would pay 100% cash, but I just have a feeling with my electric bills topping out around $1,200/year at $.08 per kWh, the system is still too expensive to make sense(at least in my case).

But, if your system produces more than you can use then you'll wind up being paid for all that excess power being fed back into the grid, well that's what happens over here anyway (quicker payoff time and then income).

Just some food for thought. ;-)

Cheers.

Every w/u that I've checked being done with an OpenCL based app always reports being done Device 0 and that is just plain wrong in about 50% of cases when using more than 1 GPU.

Cheers.

Then why aren't the two others still listed as invalid?

Because once the tasks validate they're deleted 24hrs later. ;-)

Cheers.
