1) Message boards : Number crunching : The Winter Solstice Challenge (Message 45382)

Well based on the reply I see that PG is going toward a GPU only project. So until I have the money to buy a PC with a GPU that works with PG I guess I won't be running PG anymore!

By making the WU's bigger you have made it so that only the faster PC's can join the fun!

So far I have been able to U/L just 2 WU's and may get to U/L 2 more before the end of the race.

If this is what you are going to do from now on I will not be in your short races.
3) Message boards : Problems and Help : Merge Computers (Message 43296)
Posted 2898 days ago by Ricky@SETI.USA
I been trying to Merge my computers put I have 1 with a CPU T5550 that it says I can't merge due to overlaping dates or something like that. I don't see how you can have overlapping dates for the same PC.

PC in question is a Laptop HP2910 CPU is a T5550. I only have 1 of them! Only thing I did was to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7.

if we knew when your site is down we would NOT send WU's! So if you have a day of the week that you are down that would be good to know!

It would have been better if you had started out with the deadline set to Feb 17 1900 hours.

That way You would not had to worry about making any deadline but the last one. Plus people like me would not had to abort WU's because too many were d/l to begin with!

As it is I have to set my PC's so they only get enough work to run about 4 hours!

"As y'all are fully aware, we are limping along with sporadic server overload. While it is unfortunate, it's not devastating. Most hosts are connecting within a few attempts. However, as a precautionary note, we encourage users to increase their cache to at least 4-5 hours so queues don't run dry. This hurts "prime finder" status, but it keeps cores running."


I had to reduce the number of WU in order to complete them in time because of the short deadline. If I increase the number of WU's download then I am back with the same problem!

Posted 3535 days ago by Ricky@SETI.USA
you can lower "additional work buffer" on BoincManager > Advanced > Preferences > network usage tab

because of the deadline of 1 day I ask you to lower the work buffer under 1.00 (perhaps 0.5 or 0.75)

the BoincManager asks then for less workunits

I have them set to connect every 1 day and the additional work is set to 0.

Some of my slower Laptops are getting more WU's then they can do before the deadline. Is there a way to adjust this?

This morning 1 of them d/l 15 WU's that were due at 7:23AM and they were d/l @ 4AM and it takes about 50 mins per WU. There was no way for it to do that many WU in that short of time.

Also what is the OLDEST BOINC that you folks recommend???
