Re: Full Immersive Cooling: the future, now..

There is no gunk, the liquid evapes in minutes and leaves no residue.

Also the systems above are proof-of-concept by Gigabyte to show that their pre built servers, and components, all work fine with these immersive systems.

Re: Fundraising (website running costs)

My ad blocker is running but it is not showing any ads being blocked on this site.

The site was offline, with what look like cache issues, very soon after I got a notification about your reply, so perhaps its all related.

Re: ReactOS gets an update :-)

Linux Mint has been designed for Windows uses (and is based on Ubuntu); about the only thing I have found you cannot do without using the GUI (graphic user interface) is install OpenCL. However to do that, just run the following in the command window: sudo apt-get install ocl-icd-libopencl1 It also ...

Re: User stats and GDPR

I guess an easier solution would have just to have selected acceptance by default, seeing as everyone that signed up to BOINC kind of already did this (as it was mandatory at that time).

Re: User stats and GDPR

Thanks Mark, I complete missed that one. Anyone else think BOINC would have been far more sensible to have centralised permission for stat export? Either one click to agree to all (joined) projects, or listing all your projects for explicit permission for stat export, in just one place. Personally I...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Okay that sounds like a plan then.. Thanks much appreciated. Like I mentioned most CPU projects that I have run on Linux vs Windows has shown good improvements, including some GPU projects too. I still have TeamViewer running, plus I have a 8 port USB/HDMI KVM which I could use instead of any VNC, s...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

That is very strange about the Xeon, I thought CPUs were pretty much blackboxs, and if none of the chip stuff (capacitors, etc) were damaged then it would work as normal. But as its showing faults across 2 mobos then obviously not. I still have these 2x E5-2690V1's so at some point I will have to wo...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Okay thanks; have you used it for long? And I guess you have never had any 'commercial use suspected' notifications (if its a personal use version)?

RealVNC (Cambridge) and TeamViewer are great software apps, but they really need to improve their 'commercial usage algorithms'! :twisted:

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Yeah I am kind of thinking the same thing really. I will also leave buying anymore of these mobos then. Hey Mark, what VNC are you using? Was it TightVNC? or was that someone else. I am having issues with TeamViewer so want to switch to something better that someone has used (with many hosts) for a ...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Only 8 left now.. they do seem to be selling very fast. Previously these were selling for £180 so I am not surprised people are buying them up quite quickly.

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Oh okay, I thought you were asking if we wanted to all buy in together.

Personally I will wait until I hear what Mark thinks about rebuying as I can take it or leave it really.

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

That is very low cost, and the seller offers 30 day free returns.

Obviously doing a 3/4 way buy would be even cheaper.

If Mark is up for buying in, then I guess I can come onboard (even though I not even sure if I am going to run these anymore).

Personally I think your better served coming up with logic for the end table to show rankings, rather than data collection which this site has already done for you.

Re: Millionaires League

Hey Mark, I just found this, which is a count all the 'million etc stats' done for each UK BOINC (etc) team member, on each update (I guess). I don't know if this would make things easier/quicker for you.. 1 Billion: https://stats.free-dc.org/mmakers/1000m&team=UK+BOINC+Team 500 Million: https://sta...
