"I was proceeding in a westerly direction at a speed commensurate with the road conditions, contacting control to tell them where I was, when this wall leapt out in front of me!"

Or

"Honest officer, I didn't see it coming"

I have a GTX 580 & a GTX 570 on a XEON quad-core. I'm running with the Lunatics 0.43 installer, that went in very easily (many thanks to all involved)

My question is can someone please give me tips on the cmdline options to use, currently:-

ap_cmdline_winx86_SSE2_OpenCL_NV has
-use_sleep -unroll 12 -ffa_block 8192 -ffa_block_fetch 4096 -hp


ap_cmdline_x64_SSE3_CPU is empty

TIA

Many thanks to Richard and the Lunatics team for the new installer, it went all very seamlessly for me. No alerts from McAfee etc...

Earlier this evening I installed the latest and greatest from Richard.

Just completed my first AP WU About 24 minutes for one WU on its own on a GTX 580. The WU was 1615702582, currently pending validation.

It seemed to be loading the GPU to about 90% on its own, and using between 600 and 800 MB of the 1536MB of GPU memory, so I won't run more than one at a time I think for the moment.

As people may have noticed in the past, I have a certain punchant for puns, This may have affected the results ;-)

And the results are:-


An (dis)honourable mention for Leland W. Fiscus, Jr.

"This is not what they meant by wanting a "Non-skid surface." "



Second is Rob Smith with

"I'm sure Mom said this would be a GREAT experience, not a GRATE one..."

And Angela with

"Perhaps Grate America was not the best idea for a theme park..."





And in First Place is Michael Roberts with:-

"The new playground was late: while testing, the manufacturer got a little behind with the orders."

I've seen them sold in a couple of restaurants in the UK, described as waffle chips.

24 hours and only 3 qualifying captions, so I'll leave it for another day.

Sorry guys I obviously didn't make an inspiring choice here.

I'm wondering if this thread shouldn't be renamed -

Mind you I do have to side with Chris

Ellen and her husband Bob went for counselling after 25 years of marriage.

When asked what the problem was, Ellen went into a passionate, painful
tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 25 years they had been married.

She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness,
feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and after asking Ellen to stand, embraced her, unbuttoned her blouse and bra, put his hands on her breasts and massaged them thoroughly, while kissing her passionately as her husband Bob watched with a raised eyebrow!

Ellen shut up, buttoned up her blouse, and quietly sat down while basking in the glow
of being highly aroused.
The therapist turned to Bob and said, 'This is what your wife needs at least three times a week.
Can you do this?'

Bob thought for a moment and replied,

'Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays,
but on Fridays, I play golf."

I think I can see 3 blades, one of them coming directly towards the camera.

Even if there were no passengers, I hope no crew were injured, and I bet that the heads were somewhat busy just after that!

I was running away from the tree, but that branch still REALLY smarts, and I don't know when I'm going to be able to sit down!
