Re: Rosetta UOTD

Hiya

Thanks Mark - although given that I haven't returned many Rosetta tasks recently, I'm a bit surprised...but you "can't look a gift horse... " !!

And it's nice to get a bit of "free advertising" on their website :-)

regards

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 dr...

Re: Formula Boinc sprint 18

Hi Mark Hope you are well. I'm just ticking over on each of the FB Sprints...if only to keep some basic level of UBT interest going. Sadly, my work hosts have stopped crunching due to a local power issue that happened some time shortly after 5:30am BST yesterday...and it's a bit too far to go there ...
