Re: Arecibo telescope damaged

It was also used for watching out for possible asteroid impacts - https://www.planetary.org/articles/planetary-society-arecibo-reaction Of immediate concern is the telescope’s role in tracking and characterizing asteroids. Arecibo’s planetary radar was the most powerful in the world, observing rough...

Re: Does a "progress rate" value indicate that a trickle has been done?

No worries.

Looks like the tasks are set to give a progress rate per hour and no progress rate may be because the first task has been running for less than an hour since the last checkpoint?

I don't know really, it's not normally something I look at.

Re: Does a "progress rate" value indicate that a trickle has been done?

No, progress rate is just how far it's got though the task in a fixed time (per hour in this case, per minute for shorter tasks)

All my tasks have a Progress rate even those that don't send trickles or have the network disabled.

Re: GPUGrid bad batch of jobs

Mainly Linux with 418.56 up to 455.23 plus a few Windows on 430.86 to 445.75

Looks like I should be alright but I'll update them anyway once the sprint is over.

Re: double silver in PPS sieve

Fair enough, there's other targets you could try for.

I haven't even found any reasonable 3080s on pre-order, they're all the AIB £750+ ones.

Re: MLC@Home

For those badge hunters amongst us, MLC is starting to give badges - https://www.mlcathome.org/mlcathome/for ... id=546#546

There's an "early adopters" one coming but you'll need to have finished at least one WU before 8th October.

Re: Time to upgrade?

Congratulations, both my 2080S installed with no issues and have performed flawlessly ever since, I'm sure you'll have no problems with it.

Leave the 1070 in the box with the 2070 Super? :)

Re: Nvidia 3xxx possible specs.

Yeah, as I understand it each CUDA 'core' has two execution units in it, one does FP and the other does FP + INT. Nvidia are claiming each unit and stating the 3080 has 8704 cores. Add up the FP and you do indeed get 8704 compute units but for pure INT loads, half the chip is idle (4352 compute unit...

Re: HOW far North?

Thanks for your (and others) help David, sadly it was not to be but a thrilling finish to what was heading towards being a boring sprint.

Can you thank Steve, Mega, SolidAit79, PecosRiverM and hugh jarse (Bryan?) for their help, I assume Jason is an XS person?
