Dark matter still MIA after most exhaustive search yet. :-)

Scientists Looking for Invisible Dark Matter Can't Find Any

Scientists have come up empty-handed in their latest effort to find elusive dark matter, the plentiful stuff that helps galaxies like ours form.

For three years, scientists have been looking for dark matter — which though invisible, makes up more than four-fifths of the universe's matter — nearly a mile underground in a former gold mine in Lead, South Dakota. But on Thursday they announced at a conference in England that they didn't find what they were searching for, despite sensitive equipment that exceeded technological goals in a project that cost $10 million to build.

Well, they haven't found God either, so maybe God is dark matter, or dark matter is God.

I really don't know if I should put a smiley after that statement, or not....

Only one left.

Maybe that one will finish before the next outage, and maybe all traces of SETI@home v7 will be gone from the SSP, after the next outage.

As of 12 Jul 2016, 6:50:05 UTC, there are 3 tasks left.

Is that worth a "woo hoo"? ;)

Oh yes, absolutely worth a "woo hoo"

. . HI,

. . Do you have any knowledge/advice on why my rig with the 970s keeps sleeping the video drivers? I was running SoG version r3472 so I went back to r3430 which is running on this machine AOK but it still does it. The drivers just go off into limbo never to return and I have to reboot the machine, it was down most of last night. I have updated to the latest drivers 368.39 and removed anything that seems like it might be hijacking the processors but still not fixed.

. . It is running windows 10 pro, and I cannot say whether that could be part of the problem or not as I upgraded the machine with an SSD, the 970s and windows 10 at the same time.


You have -period_iterations_num=1 in your command line file. That is too low for your 970, especially in that system. Remove that command completely, and let it go default (50) No wonder that your drivers crash and burn.

You have it pretty low even for your 950 (-period_iterations_num=5). Don't play around with those settings, until you have established a good baseline. Remove that command also for the 950.

I have a 980, and I do not go lower than 10 on that setting.

You do not gain many seconds/WU, by lowering the -period_iterations_num below its default (50), but you surely strain the system, enough for the drivers to reset, if you go too low for your particular system (the combination of GPU and CPU, and memory). After all, your 950, is sitting in a system with an old Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.00GHz, so it's possible that even the default setting at 50, is too low for that system.

Using the settings in the readme file for the app, really is something one has to do with care, and preferably knowing exactly what one is doing.

Edit, added: Running 2 970s in a system with only a Pentium(R) D CPU 3.00GHz, is really asking for trouble IMO. Especially when running OpenCL SoG, or non SoG even. Maybe CUDA would work better.

I added my laptop to beta for the iGPU only. I noticed it restarts a lot on guppi but not on arecibo.

guppi

arecibo

As I wrote on Beta, where you asked the same question:

The iGPU restarts because you still have some older versions onboard (SETI@home v8 v8.14 (opencl_intel_gpu_sah). That one is a crappy version for the iGPU.

Abort all SETI@home v8 v8.14 (opencl_intel_gpu_sah), and your iGPU will start running SETI@home v8 v8.15 (opencl_intel_gpu_sah), and SETI@home v8 v8.16 (opencl_intel_gpu_sah)

You might as well abort SETI@home v8 v8.15 (opencl_intel_gpu_sah)too, since SETI@home v8 v8.16 (opencl_intel_gpu_sah) have just been released.

That is for your computer with the INTEL Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400 (1603MB) OpenCL: 1.2. Your other two computers with the Nvidia GPU's, should not be affected by the restarts.

No, you have 3 AP v7 waiting to validate:

The big question is, if Merkel and Juncker will also follow this advice from Hitler:

If the war is lost, the nation will also perish. This fate is inevitable. There is no necessity
to take into consideration the basis which the people will need to continue even a most
primitive existence. On the contrary, it will be better to destroy these things ourselves,
because this nation will have proved to be the weaker one and the future will belong
solely to the stronger eastern nation (Russia). Besides, those who will remain after the
battle are only the inferior ones, for the good ones have all been killed.

-Hitler to Albert Speer (1945), as quoted in "Defeat of Hitler: Enter the Bunker" (2010), The History Place.

“Truly, this earth is a trophy cup for the industrious man. And this rightly so, in the service of natural selection.
He who does not possess the force to secure his Lebensraum in this world, and, if necessary, to enlarge it, does
not deserve to possess the necessities of life. He must step aside and allow stronger peoples to pass him by.”

― Adolf Hitler
(Could have been Merkel or Juncker)

Just prepare for all he** to break loose, when Germany realise that their third attempt to create Lebensraum, is about to fail.

Just finished my v7. We are down to 5 now.

Very well done!

Only 5 tasks left

That WU was initially sent out 27 Nov 2015, 10:15:35 UTC, but have been timing out 4 times, and errored out 1 time, before it was finally sent as a _6 to you on 28 Jun 2016, 6:45:36 UTC. Thank you for finally finish that one.

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=1980736807

I'm in the 26 queue awaiting validation, so one of those 5 is a resend of that unit.

I can't see that you have any SETI@home v7 waiting for validation on any of your computers. Only 1 AP v7 on this computer:

- - changes his positions more often than I change my underwear.

If that is true, it implies you have never changed your underwear. Dirty Swede.

Luckily, you seem not to be a representative case. There is cleanness in Sweden, too:

Speaking after discussions with Swedish businesses on Monday held to dissect the consequences of Brexit, [Sweden’s finance minister, Magdalena] Andersson noted that it "isn't as if you can just cherry-pick and simply follow the rules you want, then have full access to the single market".

http://www.thelocal.se/20160627/swedish-government-britain-cant-cherry-pick-the-rules-it-wants-to-follow

Sweden’s government and opposition want Britain to “take responsibility” and submit a formal application to leave the European Union as soon as possible.

http://www.thelocal.se/20160627/sweden-wants-uk-to-move-quickly-towards-exit

Sweden saw a record spike last week in the number of Britons applying for citizenship.

http://www.thelocal.se/20160628/citizenship-applications-up-500-for-brits-in-sweden

I understand your pain, when your Hitlerian leader gets told off :-)
There's a cure for that. Go the democratic road, and not the EU Hitlerian road.

Bwahahaha......

I'm innocent. I haven't had a v7 on my computers for months.
However, these last six can take several months to finish, if they go to some of the thousands of computers that never returns anything in time.
