Rollback driver, I stick to drivers that work because I dont think you will get more then 1-2% speed increase in genefer...


I upgraded from 285.62 to 295.73 before I heard about the issue with monitor sleep mode, and had a few results error out before I noticed it.

However, I am not going to rollback to 285.62. Instead, I have turned off monitor sleep mode. I don't know what effect 295.73 would have on genefer on my GTX 560, but on GCW sieve it cut a very respectable amount of time off the run time. I was doing a GCW sieve in about 2 minutes 55 seconds under 285.62, but under 295.73 they only take about 2 minutes 45 seconds. Thats about 5.7% faster on GCW sieve, and I'll take it... not to mention the OMG improvement (about a 40% higher framerate) on the Skyrim game... :)

Its summer here in Texas, and its only 28C outside right now (today's high temp. is supposed to only be 32C, the warmest high forecast over the next 10 days is only 34C). Have the air conditioner set to 25C inside. Its a mild summer here so far. That will probably change soon. Back in May, we had some days over 38C, and my air conditioner decided to break down then. It was brutal in here back then, with inside temps. warmer than 40C.

Special Note: PPS (LLR) includes both PPS and PPSE work. For the Challenge, only PPSE work will be available. PPSE (LLR) is currently at n=517K. It would be beneficial to advance this as much as possible before the next Challenge so as to ease the load on the server. Please consider heading over there early and help us reach at least n=550K. The higher the n, the less stress on the server.



I just switched my sub-project preferences for my C2Q over to exclusively PPS LLR from a mix of PPS LLR & TRP (sieve) to help out in advance of the next challenge. Maybe I might get an extra prime or two on the list. This is fun!

Hmmm .... getting the following:

19/06/2010 1:46:16 PM|PrimeGrid|Message from server: No work sent
19/06/2010 1:46:16 PM|PrimeGrid|Message from server: The Riesel Problem (Sieve) needs 14.86MB more disk space. You currently have 461.98 MB available and it needs 476.84 MB.
19/06/2010 1:46:16 PM|PrimeGrid|Message from server: No work available for the applications you have selected. Please check your preferences on the web site.

PG is already using 120MB, isn't an extra 476.84MB a bit excessive, just to get another WU?


You only need 14.86MB more disk space.


I know I only need another 14.86MB, but I already have 461.98MB of free disk space and thats a lot more than whats actually needed to run a WU. :)


It looks like your Hard Disk is a little bit too full. BOINC enforces limits on its disk usage to prevent itself from using up all your free disk space, thereby possibly crashing your computer. These limits are set on your computing preferences page
http://www.primegrid.com/prefs.php?subset=global.

Either free up a little more disk space, or lower the limits slightly.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

It looks like I found one of these as well:

SGS: 40940077078815*2^666666-1

My question is if my BOINC Primegrid preferences will be followed
to automatically report this one to the Top 5000 list if it checks out, or
will I need to manually report it myself like I did a few years ago on a few
others that I found on Primegrid then that made the list?
