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

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
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.

This is truly something to watch out for. Jupiter is the biggest protection we have from comets and asteroids and if that protection is diminished in any way we will be in for a big surprise.

Haarp is one of many such stations.
High altitude aurora research is not what this system is about.
If they close it down to be sure it will continue just moved.
It is a weapon. I can see closing it down in the public eye as too many people know what it is already.

Too many earthquakes have been caused by it already.
Weather war is what it is all about. Cost the country that is being attacked lots of money rebuilding from a natural event.

If Tesla said he can do it, then he could.
JP.Morgan did not discredit him over false inventions.

Haarp is now the result of this same invention but used in a different way.

As an energy wave circled the earth he said he could "SMACK" it as it came around, building in strength much like sound waves do when they bounce off of each other. Transmitting through the ground was how he would deliver the energy.
Like the ocean having a layer that will transmit very low frequency for thousands of miles the ground will transmit energy the same way.

His biggest problem was the word "FREE" to everyone.

We have the know how to do it now. Making money off of it is the reason we do not have it.
Corporations will not allow this to see the light.

HAARP is now used as a WEAPON. Will cause weather to change, can cause earthquakes by placing a billion watts on one spot of a fault line and tripping that fault to slip.
Haiti had steam rising from the ground just before the earthquake they had.

It is said that HAARP will also be used for mind control but I am skeptical about that.

The energy itself came from our own ionosphere where trillions of watts of energy is just waiting for us to tap it.

He truly was a genius.
JP Morgan did his evil deed well in discrediting him.
He died poor and discredited.

I was under the impression that the speed of light is not constant.
Gravity will affect the speed as light is made of photons which is affected by gravity.

What really amazes me is the TV show "Star Trek" and just how real the technology is.

Now we are seeing the possibility of time travel, warp engines, ion power, transporter beams

This new act will damage the internet so much that projects like this one will be a thing of the past.
No matter what we say or how much we scream and yell this will pass.
Our societies are no longer being run by the people and we will have no say.
The corporations will indeed have their way.
Like the Smart Meter crap that the majority of the population said no to had us being subject to blackmail.
We were told that if we did not get the meter then we would be charged 100 dollars a month.
So now we have a meter. Smart meters have taken jobs away from Canadians and Americans.

I download movies and I did get a notice that I was downloading pirated material from Shaw communications.
I told them if I can do it then I will.
They refuse to spend millions of dollars placing "Stops" in the system so that we can't download so I have no heard back from them at all.
We must protect the net from the governments
