Re: Advertising on UBT forum

I use an ad blocker too (and don't tend to switch it off unless a site won't work otherwise), so I've just donated to cover the potential loss in revenue!! Hi Penny Thanks for the donation - that's very generous of you and very much appreciated. :-) re: Ad blocker One of the features on the adverti...

Re: Current Problem with Collataz [info]

Hi all I'd not heard much about the ongoing "fix" for this issue, so I took a look at the Collatz website. It looks like their entire message board has been re-installed and all the previous messages (many years worth) have GONE !! https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/forum_index.php It also looks ...

Damn, bloomin' computers

Hi all So, I had to have a bit of a shift around at home, to accommodate a new piece of furniture, so I ran down my caches and shut down the PC (which has been on since I moved here 8 months or so ago). Got everything back in place and powered up the PC, which had moved literally about 8 inches...an...

Re: Advertising on UBT forum

Personally I would show the ads to everyone, but just place it somewhere out the way, such as the bottom of the page (footer). <snip> The last thing to be aware of is many people, such as Myself use AdBlockers, so it may be worth mentioning to all visitors that if they could disable this for this s...

Re: dDM closing down

Hi Mark

Thanks for the heads up.

Shame about dDM....I didn't give it a lot of time, but I never had any issues with crunching their tasks.

Shame we can't go out on a "high" stats wise, but that's life !!

Re: New project - Acoustics@home

Hi Would a 'Team foundership change' request help? Then I could transfer it back, you may have to remove yourself from the team and create a new account if you don't know the password, but that might not work as it may say you can't have a duplicate account - just thinking aloud...

Re: New project - Acoustics@home

Hi Mikee Thanks for the heads up on this projects "status". The downside for me is that they have used the BOINC Wide database, in order to populate existing teams into their own database...and this includes the founders of the teams too... However, due to them not having bought an SSL certificate, ...

Advertising on UBT forum

Hi all I am looking to find an easy way to help pay for the website hosting and domain name registration fees. Up until now, it's been funded by yours truly as well as generous donations from a small number of forum users. However, I feel this might be too much of a burden on the kind people who do/...

Re: Intel CPU "memory bug" needs fixing

Hi all It looks like Intel has given up trying to offer a patch for certain of its CPUs, namely: CPUs that won’t therefore get a fix are in the Bloomfield, Bloomfield Xeon, Clarksfield, Gulftown, Harpertown Xeon C0 and E0, Jasper Forest, Penryn/QC, SoFIA 3GR, Wolfdale, Wolfdale Xeon, Yorkfield, and ...

Re: Sztaki closing

Hi There's a possiblilty they might get to 2 million! Looking at BOINCStats the project is giving about 33,000/day - call it 50 days to end of May that's 1.65 million, plus the 834,000 will take it to 2.48 million - bit of a haul but possible providing things stay stable til then.

Hi Mark Thanks for the info - that's a real shame...though Sztaki (as a project) has been around for a long time !! Somehow I doubt that we will get any points from this project on the Formula BOINC challenge this year as there have been just less than 800,000 credits awarded (in total) this year - ...

Re: Current Problem with Collataz [info]

Hi Jeff Let them run....there's no issue with tasks sent out to genuine crunchers. The issue will be that the Collatz admins will stop generating new work to be crunched, until they have re-developed the Collatz app that does the "donkey work". But feel free to also allow tasks from other GPU projec...

Re: Current Problem with Collataz [info]

I wouldn't worry too much as GRCPool admin is already on the case. I'm not so worried about the GRC - more the problem is that the Collatz admins must now spend time on checking all the results from this scammer, nullifying them and then re-writing the app code to prevent this happening again. So, ...

Hi Zed Welcome to the UBT forum. Great to hear from you...and well done for persevering with WatchGuard....I don't know the thingy myself but I can understand the technicalities of it...so, you've done well to get here. Keep on crunching and if we can be of any help, then just ask away :-) regards Tim
