1) Message boards : General discussion : Things better than what is going on (Message 151615)
Posted 72 days ago by Dr Who Fan
Previews on BOINC forums are not activated.

Strange I never noticed. Maybe I haven't posted a URL before.
I usually preview an image to make sure I got it right

Images can be previewed on standard BOINC forums, but YouTube links are VIDEOS thus no preview.
The only EXTERNAL BOINC (non-project) forum I know of that has YouTube preview is at BOINCstats.

4) Message boards : Generalized Fermat Prime Search : Genefer-19 tasks invalid (Message 151564)
Posted 78 days ago by Dr Who Fan
Well, that's annoying! I very much appreciate the diagnosis. Guess I should go figure out how to diagnose a GPU problem. Since I have never seen this on my CPUs, I have to agree. This has happened twice on GFN-19 also. I wonder if the failure rate is proportional to the size of the GFN.

Check that your GPU is not overheating (can be caused by a build up of dust, pet hair, etc inside the PC); the GPU is not over clocked/in Turbo mode; GPU fan is not running. These all can cause the GPU to overheat and start causing errors.

Fourth prime found by Dr Who Fan! Congratulations! Incredible luck, considering that he did only 93 tasks at the moment I'm writing this post.

The base resisted quick factorization, but I'll do more ECM testing at least for a week.

Thanks! Must be my lucky day today :)

Posted 196 days ago by Dr Who Fan
I ran across this amazing article earlier today while looking for another one about Bee's.

The Mysterious Connection between Honey Bees and Mathematics

But what makes honey bees nature’s greatest mathematicians?
So far, we have 5 reasons to believe so:


  • They have the ability to produce a geometrically impressive waxy comb.
  • The reason why they prefer hexagons over other shapes
  • They can easily solve the “Travelling Salesman Problem”
  • They can grasp the idea of zero.
  • They can solve simple and basic mathematical questions.

He doesn't seem to post at either PG or mersenneforum

He posts to mersenneforum, https://www.mersenneforum.org/search.php?searchid=3800790. /JeppeSN

He must of hidden all his posts at mersenneforums. I get the following at the message board link you posted:
Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms

yet when i choose all 16 to cancel . seeing i was going to blow over the req time to finish.
it showed 75 wu going to cancel..

Sounds like you might have accidentally clicked the button in BOINC Manager (the Graphical User Interface) on LEFT SIDE that you can toggle between "Show active tasks" and "Show all tasks".
Click on it once again to Show all tasks.

DEFINE:
Active tasks == Only the Currently Running tasks.
All task == show all tasks even if not currently running.
