Still working for me, although the last 2 runs (weekend before last and today) gave me Tesla K80's.

Had you been using the service a lot? I think someone mentioned further up about restrictions for repeated high usage.

It has been a few days since your post, so maybe try again if you haven't in the meantime.


I do give it a break from time to time. In the most recent run it has never got beyond allocating. So I am just letting it allocate for as long as it wants.

I am not getting a GPU at all any more.

Any new hot gossip on what the future holds for the AP27 and AP28 effort???


That you saw fit to give me that sinking feeling, apparently. ;-)

Won't most of those get timed out? If so isn't there a limit already in force?

Shutdown client and manually edit key ("authenticator") inside "account_www.primegrid.com.xml" file (located in Boinc data directory, default is \ProgramData\Boinc on Windows).



That seems to have worked. Thanks.

If I just try attaching I get an error of "Operation failed: already attached to project".

The machine where I am posting this recently crashed. When I rebooted it I found I could not log back into the website. So I changed the password. Then I found machines using the weak account key will not connect to the server. It is advising me to dettach and reattach. I believe this will lose the work. Is there anyway I can save the work currently in flow?

I noticed the terms of service for colab say no cryptocurrency mining.

https://research.google.com/colaboratory/faq.html

Please note that using Colaboratory for cryptocurrency mining is disallowed entirely, and may result in being banned from using Colab altogether.


I'm not sure they'll like people using BOINC either.



Really shouldn't someone clarify with google whether this is okay. Maybe it would be okay if we followed certain rules. Maybe they would want us to mount the software on google drive so we don't download it everytime.

It's not working for me any more. Not sure why. The latest run managed to complete 5 WUs before dieing and lasted something like an hour.



It still works for me.



So what are you doing that I am not doing?

Isaac Newton in 1666 wrote:

about his calculation of Pi to 15 digits.

I am sure this timeless phrase applies equally well to our quest for prime numbers.



The problem is that I do have other business.
