I am just chundering quietly along on the dual P3 I used 10 years ago for Classic.


Yep me too
My farm of old computers just keeps chunking away
While I set here and dream of a better day

Due to current MANAGEMENT most of my machines show almost a month or more of wu in the queue



So? My two PCs are working on 1 WU, each, at this moment! Thats it. Its not a problem. Not desireable, but not a problem.

I think that lesson is being given to those who need it most. That or the lesson about BOINC being fault tolerant.

Good to see tempers have cooled down here :)

Well, only seen 1 workunit go through my cuda card many hours ago ......... strangly I was considering only doing CPU crunching as my card was getting over 85 oC on these hotter days. I guess I won't have to make that choice quite so soon. :)


Am I going to quit? .......... NO!!


I'm just going to stuck with it and crunch whatever I get ...... and hope for Football glory!!

Go England!!! :)

Indeed. There is always work, somewhere.

Heat is work and work is heat and work is heat and heat is work
...
Heat is work and work's a curse
And all the heat in the Universe
Is gonna cooool down 'cos it can't increase
Then there'll be no more work and there'll be perfect peace
Really?
Yeah - that's entropy, man!

IMHO why not make the new schedule late Friday thru Monday morning! The system is usually snafu during that time ennyhoo and wouldn't be missed at all.

Nice thought, but the point of having the outage in the middle of the week is to have the computer horsepower available for scientific work while the scientists are there. And let the scientists do scientific thingys instead of babysitting servers.

If the budget would allow, they could hire and train an IT apprentice to stick around over the weekend and keep the hardware glued together...
If only it were possible....LOL.

I've got 6 WUs which I have suspended on my dual P3 as the system wants to crunch short deadline, poor paying, Malaria work. I also have odd, poor paying, FreeHAL work going through.

All the other rigs are dedicated to GPU and CPU crunching, but mainly concentrating on GPU work.
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

Or maybe a couple of UNPAID interns from the CompSci department, who do it as a requirement of their scholarships?
