Sorry Speedy, it wasn't meant as a correction or a barb. It made me smile and I enjoyed the thought of S@H specific word usage. I thought others might find the concept as novel as I did. And if so, you will be the one that set it off! Good on 'ya.

I know it was a typo, but I think I could get behind the use of "splat" as the past tense of split when referencing work units. It just seems so wonderfully descriptive. Anyone else?

except, apparently, on the 26th.

there is massive activity on "bytes out" on the cricket graphs. I am fairly sure this actually measures traffic to the server but it's usually about 15 Mb/s, currently peaking >350 Mb/s. Last time it did that, there was a FDGB.

yep, I know what you mean - I try to think of the pendings as future higher RAC, although I still have pendings from 2012...

It's probably a result of the wad of Astropulse work unit that were recently available. They take longer to run so fewer wingmen report quickly. My pending to valid ratio has risen as well. As long as AP units are only intermittently available this type of cycling behaviour will continue.
What goes up must come down...

@ Wiggo,

Thanx and a tip of the hat to you. So I did in fact miss something... I just don't have the time I would like to have to peruse the various threads and keep up to date [sigh].
I will apply the standard S@H fix to this issue - and ignore it to death. Ha!

I just noticed that all of the Enhanced tasks tasks I am crunching seem to take quite a while to complete relative to credit granted while ALL of my wingmen's enhanced tasks end in error after 10-20 seconds, but are validated and credited. Check the SETI@home Enhanced tasks on these rigs:

here,
and here.

Did I miss something?

@ Fred E,

You are correct.

You can tell that it's not your machine (not a local problem) when the cricket graphs start dropping like panties at a Beiber show...

It would appear something is clogging up the works...

On the plus side Neil Tyson's Cosmos redux looks most promising - even though it made me miss Carl.

Yes, everything was running fabulously well for the last two days, that seems to be about the limit, currently...

Sure, I'll give it a go. I have cards ranging from 9800's to a 770. How does it work anyway?

Hi all,
I asked this before and someone (Msattler or Claggy, probably) told me how to do it. Sent me a link to the procedure, I think. But now that I'm ready to give it a go, I can't find the damn instructions!
As I recall, you need to run multiple instances of Boinc with the other GPUs blocked, except for the one you wish to control. I can probably suss it out - eventually - but not before I generate hundreds or thousands(!) of errored WUs and I don't want to do that.
Thanx in advance, again!

BTW, has anyone else noticed a large spike in their "validation inconclusive" numbers? I find that more concerning than the normal S@H work supply variances.

Well, if there are no work units available, it's a good time to do maintenance - lemonade, yes?

@ Link,

You must be right - looking back in the pile of "spare parts" it was more likely a DX4-100 or a slot1 350 or 400... I found a slot1 800 as well with a triple fan cooler - Ha!
