Re: PrimeGrid challenge #3 Yuri's Night Challenge

Tim joins the party ... and I think we'll need him just to stop Richard scoring 80% of our points! Hi Mark I've actually been crunching these PG Yuri WW tasks for a day or two...but of course it's only tasks that are downloaded AND returned within the 3 day Challenge period that actually count...wh...

UBT needs a Shameless Badges Bragging Thread. Show those badges. They are hard earned. :-D Hi Steve We USED to have one that was set up by Darren, who was the original forum creator/admin and who had some great web design skills: This is from October 2007: https://web.archive.org/web/20071001221202...

Re: PrimeGrid challenge #3 Yuri's Night Challenge

Hi Mikee

I'm in, using my GPUs on this...

My CPU's are a bit "old hat" so probably not worth doing these PG CPU tasks, as they might take ages...

Re: Want to rent some NVidia GPUs from Google?

HI Mark So, for $0.87 for an hours worth of Ampere GPU and maybe some CPUs (and which includes leccy and you get 100% control) compared to £0.1626 + 5% VAT = £0.17 per kWh so you could run 2x 2080i GPUs plus a few CPUs for around 1 kWh consumption - but downsides are questionable control and maybe g...

Re: Linux code to display CPU temp and utilisation

Hi Chris

Thanks for this....just a shame I don't currently run any Linux machines as I'd love to try it out (or give it a "bash" ;-) ).

I'm sure other members might be able to benefit from this :-)
