Re: Time for some new hardware

I couldn't see the point of disabling half the chip. Sure, turning off hyperthreading might improve individual core performance but you lose half the cores and still have hyperthreading?!

Have fun building it :)

Re: New project: DBN Upper Bound

Pays quite well (~115 credits for 75 minutes), not too demanding. Runs in a VM each of which are set up with 2 cores and 2 gig of RAM so high core count, low memory machines thrash the virtual memory. Only uses one core though. Only recently added to Boincstats but it's been around for about a month...

Re: Change a Letter

Yep, back to crunching too. Got Collatz going again, I just need to get the config files sorted again. I had it working before they pulled the plug, so it's just a matter of remembering what I did last time. I've had one attempt that didn't go well, I'll have another look later. But at least I'm ea...

Re: Tweaking app xml files

Hi Jeff, I'm not sure how to tell if it's making a difference though? If you check on your returned tasks, the times should be much reduced also looking in the stderr output, you should find the settings reflected there: ie Collatz Config Settings: verbose 1 (yes) kernels/reduction 32 threads 2^9 (5...

Re: Change a Letter

Got my computer back! Looks like a reseat of the SSD has done the trick. They reckoned the BIOS wasn't quite configured correctly but that was probably down to me resetting it to default trying to fix it. It does mean that I don't have to mess about restoring stuff, which I wasn't looking forward t...

No, go for it. I like to think I have quite a varied vocabulary but it's always good to learn new words.

Re: Mindmodelling has work!

Brandon knows about the issue. Apparently it's a problem with the teams database caused by the crash and it will be fixed in time. At least three teams affected, TAAT, UBT and Boincstats.

Re: Word Association

They did say it was possibly a mobo fault, it's one of those M2 types and it could be the port at fault. Still no news, might be a slightly more irate call tomorrow. Is it a small company? Surely they should have another system that they can plug the SSD into or a spare SSD to try in your system? A...

Re: Mindmodelling has work!

I imagine there's some fault in the summing up scripts and a couple of projects are missing out.

Should be updated correctly eventually as the individual scores are correct.
