Quite, Sir; I wish to make it very clear, that it was Your Excellency, who wanted to continue with this; I did not:

I hid your name calling but then decided it was best if you were allowed to speak. All you seem to be able to say is the idiotic "xenophobic simpletons" line, old news please move on.

As was said before this thread is called "The Way Ahead" but you seem stuck in the past. I can see that I am wasting my time here.

Very good, Sir. By all means, go on trying.

Just please don't continue abusing your mod powers here for your own political agenda.

Where did I do that?

Facts are no insults.

But xenophobic, racistic simpletons are an insult to the civilised mankind.

Your own Baroness Sayeeda Warsi already last month: Warsi attacks Leave campaign 'lies' and 'xenophobia'. And what did actually take place after this? Xenophobic, racist Briton simpletons rushed to follow Nigel Farage & Co's lies.

Immigration, NHS etc. lies: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-eu-referendum-36641390.

Racism: Racist incidents feared to be linked to Brexit result.

But as said, good riddance, fast fast fast. Free and independent Scotland, welcome.

Once again the no nationality poster using old stories to try and get their worn out point across.

A lot of things were said, however unlike you, the UK is now trying to move forward, it wont be quick but if you represent the European mind set it would seem to be a good move.

I take not one word of what you say about my country seriously as you xenophobically continue to hide yours.

Farewell Michael Garibaldi.

Babylon 5 was one of my all time favourite shows and he is 5 years younger than me.

RIP

No wonder the UK is the nation of xenophobic, racist simpletons it has become.


Once again the poster who admits no nationality thinks it is quite alright to insult others as they know no one can argue back.

What xenophobic way to behave.

Rather than fill this thread with pictures of grey trains.

I have created a couple of Flickr albums for the VR Cameras

Cajon Pass

and

Folkston GA

I will add new pics when I see something worth uploading.

PS there are a couple of blue trains and I think an orange one as well :-)

Not looking very good here.

Perhaps a better graphics card would be needed for this to work.

Not a very nice thing to say, but could be true.

GT 640 is quite good enough for me, and it should be good enough for SETI@Home.

Sorry, yes there was one solitary driver crash and recovery in the event log.

Usually I would expect to see more if it went on 100 times for 3 WU's

However you are probably right, I forgot this is Vista!!

Win 10 seems to be more forgiving, any number of driver crashes on Win 10 does not usually result in errors.

Advice on best driver for this setup?

I have just started up an older machine in advance of the WOW event.

7181449

It has been running OK for 20 or so hours. Then I got 3 tasks all failed with this.


Error: Getting Platforms. (clGetPlatformsIDs)
BOINC assigns device 0
WARNING: BOINC failed to provide OpenCL device, using own enumeration abilities
ERROR: OpenCL kernel/call 'clGetDeviceIDs (second call)' call failed (-32) in file ..\..\..\src\GPU_lock.cpp near line 1128.
Waiting 30 sec before restart...
Priority of worker thread raised successfully
Priority of process adjusted successfully, below normal priority class used


About 100 times then task fails with too may restarts.

Any advice as to the cause.

I have restarted the machine and it is crunching OK at the moment.

The weather here is South London has been very "changeable" over the last few weeks, extremely hot, heavy rain, hot, rain.. rinse and repeat.

Just saw the sunset from my kitchen window.



Not sure if that is good or bad for tomorrow.

I keep meaning to post this here.

Twice a week I give IT lessons at my local 60+ Club. The club has a lounge with several chairs.

A few weeks back I had the distinct feeling I was being watched.



Those Raccoons get everywhere!!

Islam is a religion of peace...

...So that begs a question...

...WHY do Islamic nations have armed forces with some having nuclear weapons after all they are a peaceful people?


Yes Christian nations are all of course nations of war, why else do they have armies and nuclear deterrents.

Muslim Nation.


And where might this "nation" be located.

Muslims are not the enemy please remember that.

There are some who call themselves Muslims who are not, and who wish to see the west destroyed. They are not true Muslims!!

It is people like you with statements like that who are helping DAESH achive their goal by spreading fear and misinformation.

Not nearly as easy as for a squirrel.

Quote

Most people have noticed that squirrels can climb down trees head-first.

What you may not know is how they do it. Tree squirrels have ankle joints that are adapted to be super flexible. When a squirrel wants to climb down it can rotate its feet 180 degrees, dig its claws into the trunk and hang from its back legs.

In human terms this would mean that you could rotate your feet around till they were pointing backwards.

Unfortunately I cannot actually understand all of what you are saying as the translations, either yours or Google translate, do not make total sense.

You probably need someone like Mike to explain it in your own language.

Mike is well respected here on the forums and he will be able to explain it.

Please calm down and let Mike explain.


Leider kann ich nicht wirklich alle verstehen, was Sie wie die Übersetzungen sagen, entweder Ihre eigenen oder Google zu übersetzen, nicht total Sinn.

Sie müssen wahrscheinlich jemanden wie Mike es in Ihrer eigenen Sprache zu erklären.

Mike ist gut hier in den Foren respektiert und er wird es erklären können.

Bitte beruhigen und ließ Mike erklären.

You do of course realise that as the newer applications are developed (we have recently moved to version 8) that older data is sent out again for re-checking by the newer app.

As the newer app can look at the data in more detail

The newer Greenbank work units are all from this year, the way the date is recorded is a system used in many scientific fields across many countries. Remember just because it is the 20th of July not every other country uses the same calendar.

The list was put together by Richard Haselgrove and required time and effort and you obviously have never seen it before and dismiss it as rubbish

Sorry but you are incorrect, data from all those yeas has been sent and returned.

If you look at the Richards chart you will see 2015 in not "missing".








And there are more. Are you suggesting that Richard made this up?

You might wish to look here where Richard Haselgrove has kept a record of all the tapes that have been split.

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=74238#1483744

As you can see data up to 2015 has been distributed.

SETI@Home only gets data when others are using the telescope.

We are also now getting Greenbak data which is currently prefixed "blc4_2bit_guppi" then a number which is a modified Julian date.

See here for a converter http://www.csgnetwork.com/julianmodifdateconv.html

From which you can see the tapes currently being split are

57451 - 03-04-2016 and 57403 - 01-16-2016


Also typing in all capitals is considered rude, please do not do it.

Thank you
