I had a virus called "help_decrypt"
It came from a flashdrive that had only pictures on it. Nothing else.
I plugged it into my machine and it passed the virus scan.
Next morning all my movies, music, pictures ETC had a file in the same directory called help_Decrypt.

When I clicked on a movie or picture it said pay 500 bucks and we will decrypt your system.

yeah I'm sure they would.
The only cure was a complete wipe.

Ransom ware is so nasty I wish the police would do something about it.
At least a flogging with fishhooks on a rope.
Writers that do this to computers are psychotics and need to be dealt with as such.

Meanwhile the culprit is probably a Anti-Virus company.
I can sure see it. The companies that write and sell Anti-virus software need to have some thing to make people pay for their products.
one division make the viruses the other makes Anti virus software

Where oh where are my AP's gone
None to be seen. I hope that gets fixed sooner than later

Absolutely I pay more........I guess their point is I'm not GREEN ENOUGH...

And they know where they can put that argument.






I used to have 5000 watts of HPS lighting on my GREENERY and I had no notices saying I was using more. Heee, Heee
That was when I was exempted under the Health Canada System.
Disability even helped me pay the hydro. those days are gone though. At least until Herr Harper is gone and JT is next PM of Canada.

Like the Phenom 2 series the FX chips work best under the 990 chipset.
I have tries the older chipsets and and different power phases but the best by far is the 990.

I have the Gigabyte 990FXA UD3 Version 4 mow and stable at 4 GHz with core voltage 1.5.
Stay away from boards that have 4+1 power phase and go with 8+2

The Phenom 2 1100T now is purring at 100% load and 40C temp.
I use a coolmaster 212 Plus push and side plate off the box.
Small deskfan to cool the Mobo.

I have got this up to 4.4 and then needs more voltage.

I have seen Phenom 2 at 1.55 but that is a bit scary temps

I find that Astropulse is the only thing worth spending hydro crunching on.
What is the problem now. It was going great and now I can't get any new tasks. GPU is out. As far as other projects I'm not interested.
So do we wait until after Tuesday again before the splitters are back up. There is a ton of AP to do, so lets do them

I know it's frustrating. Never forget, though, that calling SETI a shoestring operation is an insult to shoestrings. They have little money, little manpower, and the whole thing keeps going by sheer force of will and the infinite patience of it's citizen calculators.


I do understand 100%, Just blowing off some steam and I am sorry if I offended anyone.

Nice way to roll out a new Version
Give people a taste. Get the machines all set for AP V7 and then take them off line.
I have 5 CPU tasks left and I do not crunch MB anymore so off line I go
What a waste of machines.

Someone once said something about that scenario...


Yes, it's called insanity

Looks like they are fixing the AP today. That would be my guess anyway.
Thank God as most of us are out at this point.

Just had one in the 700's and they are all coming up again for credit


http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=3779608716

Most are now getting more credit then the last couple of days
Once things settle out it will go back to AP normal credits

Very strange the way the main page comes up.
If I select home page from Boinc is comes up code but if I go to message boards then press home from there it is normal.

As far as some of the negative comments here I can only assume the problems stem from the Seti clan wanting to get all the V6 AP units in and done before we can go on to V7.

I used to get pissed but all I achieved was high BP and nothing else.
Now I just sit back and wait until the guys at Seti who work very, very hard complete their mission and work once again flows.

The cure for an attitude is called "Northern Lights" Not the one up in the North Poles either.
A nice 60/40 mix of Indica and Sativa. Works every time........

@all who cached NV OpenCL APv7 app with revision lesser than 2721

Please remove older deprecated binaries from your sites and replace with OpenCL NV AP7 r2721 build.

Consider this as "official notice".



Roger that. Thanks for the replies.
Now we just need to finish off the remaining V6 CPU tasks and go for V7 with CPU and GPU

One common rule with flashing any bios is reset bios before and after you flash. Load default or just remove the battery for 10 minutes and unplug computer.

Just for your information.

I have run into problems where sensors did not work properly without resetting bios.

That is what I wanted to know. I'll stay with V6 for now until apps are available

I see that Astropulse V7 is now available. At least it is now on the list for Applications to do.
My question is What do put in as values for what apps to call in my App_info.xml
I am doing CPU AP 601 and GPU AP 604

I am using an older AMD OPT app for CPU
SSE3_CPU_AMD_r2148
and GPU is using AP6_win_x86_SSE2_OpenCL_NV_r2667

I am using Nvidia x64 337.88 and Boinc 7.4.22

Thanks in Advance

I see this has gone to a global emergency alert.

What a world.
May God take care of the people in Africa.
I hope this is quashed very soon. Otherwise we are all in big trouble.

Reminds me of the Pale Horse.....

The way this virus came about and is taking off I have to wonder why all of a sudden this is going on.
Canada has an experimental vaccine that needs to be tested before it is patented and made for commercial use.
That equals a lot of money and a lot of reasons for a Bio terrorist act in a population that has been tested on before.

The way this world is now nothing would surprise me.

Being in a world that is under the threat of terror I find this virus to be the most horrible terror threat in the world.
I also find it extremely suspicious how this outbreak became so bad.
Africa has been under ATTACK from drug companies for quite some time now and I just do not trust corporations that have a lot to gain from the spread of a virus like this or Governments that have a lot to gain by the possible martial law that should be declared. Just the fact that it is here and killing is the terror weapon

Fear makes money. Fear makes people and governments do things they would not normally do.

Bringing the two American Doctors back to USA is very troublesome.
If this virus is to be contained then why even think about bringing it to the USA.

I would think these Doctors could have been treated in Africa. Seems like a risk that is far too unnecessary.
