Re: Primegrid 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing Challenge

Yeah it was a good challenge, the threadrippers really hold their own.

Well done to everyone.. 600K / 3600 WUs is an excellent result for a few days team crunching.

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: Let's March on with TN-Grid

I will be continuing with Rosetta, WCG, and GPUGrid (mainly) until the end of Q1 2009; Good luck in the challenge and for the FB sprint(s).

Re: PrimeGrid Tour De Primes

I hate to break this to you.. but you double-checked a Prime as you came 2nd (wingman); well done though as it took me over 16K returns to achieve one of these. I would maybe play the lottery this week if I were you! This is mine, your Prime is larger: http://www.primegrid.com/primes/?section=primel...

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: PrimeGrid Tour De Primes

I have a couple of DYFL tasks that I am part-time crunching that I will complete over the next week or so.

In terms of TDP I have put that to one side for now; however I may join you in the mountain stage seeing as its only 24 hours (19-20 Feb).

Re: PrimeGrid Tour De Primes

Its not just the sieve apps that don't qualify, its any prime search that will result in a Prime smaller than the top 5,000 current primes. From what I read and see, you have the best shot via the 2 GFRs (16 and 17-MEGA), and PPSE and PPS (on your CPUs). This is a list of the Primes found so far as ...

Re: PrimeGrid Tour De Primes

You do realise that PPS-Sieve [Proth Prime Search Sieve] is different to PPS [Proth Prime Search LLR]? Sieve apps have always paid the most credit as they are not *directly looking for Primes. To gain a badge for TDP you need to find a 5K Prime, which means running GFR16 or above (GPUs), or one of t...

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 ...
