I've been running 321 sv for 7 hours now, but nearly all my tasks are pending. Is it that no one cares about this enough or that everyone already got their badges?

It is possible there's just a lot of tasks out there due to the Formula Boinc sprint on PrimeGrid.
I'd definately consider the possibility of people bunkering to make the adverseries drop their guards.

Hi.
The new Mac application is doing fine on a 2008 MacBook running OS X 10.7.5.
If it doesn't crash within the next two and a half days and some hours, it should be fine.
Anyone running Snow Leo?
Don't know if I have it installed anywhere atm, and I don't want to downgrade this machine.

Hello.
I agree with Pokey to get no more than one task at a time, and set llr multi-threading to two threads for running llr. As you also run sieve tasks, which use one thread each, make that a maximum of two tasks at a time.

Also, if you have a look at the typical run-time when choosing projects from the preferences, you might want to choose only the shorter running ones, as your machine might well take longer for llr than the typical amount of time.

Sweet!
I'm accessing the forums with an obsolete 13'' MacBook Pro made in 2010.
While I have all those nice Core-i crunchers, this is my main machine.
I only switch to my Mac Mini 2014 if I want to watch videos or films that go over the processing capacity of the MacBook's GPU (Geforce 320M) like stuff encoded with HVEC, or HVEC, or HVEC, or maybe x265. ;-)

To make it work though you do need to attach to a 2nd cpu Project with a non zero resource share but set it to no new tasks otherwise Boinc can set the only cpu project to a default of 100% and you will have a boatload of workunits.

This doesn't matter anymore since the setting for max number of work-units was implemented.
You can even make your cache 10 plus 10 days big, but you will only get one piece of work.

Thanks a lot to you two!
Also, best wishes for the future and whatever you'll be doing in it.
Have fun on Rupert!

I was lucky enough to have one of my two 1050Ti find a GFN-16, so I got my badge for this year. :-)
This is quite nice and absolutely enough.
I still have my elderly gear running to maybe - against all odds - find a Mega. This is FUN! :-D
