Had my whole Dual GPU setup burning WU's like it was their job..

So what if i could only hold an hour worth of work because they ran on High priority mode..

I had to burn my WU's and return to an older version without CUDA..

They made my computer UNUSABLE.. graphics freezes.. couldnt watch a youtube with them running.

At least folding or gpu grid doesn't totally hog every single bit of power they have.

I will be the first person to rejoin the mix, once the bugs are fixxed and they deliver a quality product that lets me continue to use my computer while its busy crunching.

All still very exciting. Just as promised by Matt...

This should also all be very exciting for clearing out the bugs quickly. Roll on the Linux version next!

Happy fast crunchin',

Kinda has nothing to do with what the thread is about, I was just wondering why your cards show up like [CUDA|GeForce 8800 GTS 512|2|0MB] Is this because they're SLI. I see in the stderr it shows 2 cards too but the 0 MB is throwing me off.

Edit: Just found someone else that has the same thing, but seems to be causing them problems. Maybe it's what is causing trouble on yours. Here's the thread with the other person.

No, it's a bug in the new scheduler code. I've reported it already. All computers with CUDA cards that contacted the project in the last hour or so will show zero MB on their computer page.

Should be fixed in a bit. Simple typo in the code. :-)
