Re: Formula Boinc sprint 18

The GPU application is specific to the three cards mentioned, it doesn't even work on other AMD cards. I've had a quick go at getting it to work on various NVidia cards and no luck, I don't think it'll work. There's no mention in the server of which type of tasks are available so maybe it's been dro...

Re: Formula Boinc sprint 18

According to the YOYO message boards it is a license issue - https://www.rechenkraft.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=17844 You need to replace the "ca-bundle.crt" file in your Boinc program directory with a new one. There's copies at various locations on the web, I used the one from SRBase - https://...

It doesn't look like we'll be catching Australia, holding off Boincstats seems our best bet.

Re: SiDock@home September Sailing Challenge

I'm getting Odlk to the 10 million mark at the moment.

Should be done tomorrow night then I'll head over and give SiDock a go for the last few days.

100 Beeelllion credits!

Last night UBT broke the one hundred billion (twelve digits!) total barrier in non-ASIC crunching, only the second UK team to do so. :happy-cheerleaderkid: :happy-wavemulticolor: :happy-cheerleaderkid: Despite UBT being the number one UK team for many a year, TSBT just beat us by a couple of months ...

Re: 2990wx CPU

Hi David,

I don't see why not, a listing wouldn't break any of the conditions of use that I'm aware of.

It's a bit quiet at the moment though so there may not be a lot of interest.

Re: Pentathlon 2021 Challenge

Thanks for your help Adrian, good to have you aboard even temporarily.

Boinc Tasks has rules where you can set a host/project to stop/start at any particular time. Might be worth a look?

Or set up multiple Boinc instances to run at different times?

Re: MLC@Home

No worries, I forgot about GDPR at first hence the rambling on about credits and targets. I agree you're limited in projects, I've actually for four Pis myself but they haven't ran in over a year as there's no real project for them :( I would have given them a spin on MLC if I'd thought about it but...

Re: MLC@Home

MLC may pay well for Raspberry Pis but it's not a great place for 'normal' CPUs. Not bad but not the best. Four hours work on a top end CPU for less than 1k credits? Fifty minutes on a 1660ti for 4k credits? Four hours on YOYO with a mid range CPU gets you 1.3k credits. Fifty minutes on a 1660ti on ...

15 or so of the units I've crunched in the last couple of days are sitting in the pending state at the moment, they get credited quite quickly though.
Ah, in that case Tims answer is the correct one. Each task needs to be validated by someone else and they're not as enthusiastic as normal.
