@Al - It's generally regarded that one instance per 512MB of VRAM (provided its not a 3GB GT 430 which exists, I dont think six instances here would work out so well) is an acceptable comfort zone. Bottom line, if you can run more without causing 2d lag, you should be fine.

Excellent news Matt. I know the community in general is probably glad to hear that AP work is coming, and Im sure your pipeline/databases are going to like you more as well.

Good work over the weekend. If I'm reading right, we've got some AP work on the way. Good news for sure.

Here's to hoping AP chews on lots of data this week. My q6600 is ready to chew on some results.

Running x64 version of Win 7 on, and RAC has continued to climb from 32 bit XP. So far, the improvements over vista are overall a great deal even though, as its been mentioned previously in this thread, its small things that add up to a larger improvement. Now if we can get OpenCL and BOINC to work together, I can really put some power to the pavement.

SETI could have backup servers in place to carry on until the main servers are ready to start again that is a way some commercial servers work such as at dynDNS they can supply back up servers until the SETI servers get back on line. dynDNS offered the service to me but since I am not a commercial server I host at my home computer I do not need their back up servers SETI could do something similar. I feel your pain Philippe.
Bye Paul

Yes but organziations such as dynDNS are commerically supported organizations. SETI, being donation supported, doesn't have the resources to do this. Unless someone were to donate some serious hardware, that is.
