Wow, looked at some old hard drives from around 2000ish, and they have Louis' client from my older computers.

I know this is a stupid question, but is there any math at all to predict when the next SOB might hit?

It was so much fun back in 2000ish when we'd get a hit once or twice a year.

I don't even want to know the power bill for all the computers I've had SOB/BOINC running on (sigh)

Maybe BOINC can give everyone a 20 year badge :)

The other two hosts have multithreading enabled.

You need something like this:
<app_config> <app> <name>llrSOB</name> <fraction_done_exact/> <report_results_immediately/> </app> <app_version> <app_name>llrSOB</app_name> <cmdline>-t 32</cmdline> <avg_ncpus>32</avg_ncpus> </app_version> </app_config>

I'll try this. I don't exactly know what you mean by the "other two hosts". This is a single machine with a single TR1950x and a single GTX1080 (no VMs either). Will this fix BOINC displaying that LLR shows as running for 14+ days (in the tasks tab) before completing, but that also show as 30 days in the workunit URL I posted?

Wow. I was checking the first invalid work unit I have gotten in months, and see that my compute speed is really poor. Could someone explain this workunit page:

My TR1950x OC to 3.7GHZ is taking 30 days for a test that the client says should take two days. I was assuming this was a guess by the client (since the PPSeive times are also always wrong). But I see two intel chips with basically the same integer and floating numbers actually doing the tests in two days in the above workunit.

My rig is as rock solid as I can make it. Tested it for a month before starting BOINC with all the usual tests like PRIME95, etc. I only use it for 4 hours a day. The rest of the time is all BOINC.

If someone else is running a TR1950x and is getting two day tests on the reissued numbers, please let me know and i'll start pulling more hair trying to figure this out.

For my 3.7GHZ speed, I get the same scores as others. IE Cinebench15 scores around (3000-3100), etc.
