    $80 laptop anyone? Evolve III Maestro E-Book 11.6" Laptop Computer - Dark Grey

    I ordered 5 of these and foolishly drug my feet on opening them up and testing. They only give a 15 day return window on them and they took 7 days to ship. First one I opened, my wife uses. It seems to work fine except after the first round of Windows updates, it now won't update. Second one I...

    The test batches were small but I didn't receive any work on Android whatsoever. I did get some on the x86/x64 boxes

    BoincGames.com BOINC fun and interesting for all involved.

    I think the number of sprints was ok. The problem was trying to do all of the sprints, all of PG series, all of SETI.Germany's events, and anything else that popped up in the process. Just way too much in general. It becomes exhausting. Combine that with the fact that a lot of the science has no...

    BoincGames.com BOINC fun and interesting for all involved.

    Though I have the same feelings on the replication of event ideas and fragmenting what's left, I do feel like he is making real effort where others have failed. It is very early on still in the working of things and so will have some issues. Since he isn't building the site himself, he is at the...

    Yeah... BG's is still in BETA mode as Skillz is still working out a lot of bugs. We haven't advertised it much because it really isn't ready for prime time just yet. Glad to see some interest from you guys and others. Definitely post any and all issues with the site in his forums because that is...

    Best Video Cards for DCing?

    What is "best" to run really comes down to a lot of factors. Each project has different needs and the hardware that runs "best" on them can also be different. For example, some projects run better on nVidia cards. Some on AMD because of the implementation of OpenCL. Typically the projects will...

    I would prefer that they scrap the Frankensteined setup and just update to the latest BOINC server. Then work on getting all the other controls they want added later. Maybe actually help develop the server code to improve all projects. But, you know that will never happen.

    I've had many phones do that over time. I've been abusing the Visible Swap deal to replace some of them cheaply though.

    I normally send an email from the Team Captain account at WCG. I do that because that project has our largest user base. This year WCG wasn't available due to the migration and most of the project announced, weren't known until right before. Even then, half our contributors didn't have accounts...

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    Maybe.... SETI.Germany likes picking a specific sub project with WCG now for some dumb A** reason. Even if picked as the Obstacle course, they probably would have had issues since the WCG server limits the amount per project to send at any given time. We have seen that in the past. arnemetis ...

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    This sadly would not be as simple as you put it. If the project is backed by a University, then there is a strong possibility that ANY donations sent to it wouldn't necessarily go to the project nor the infrastructure. Typically what happens is that the money just goes to the University and gets...

    Also, for anyone not paying attention. SRBase portion is done. Move ALL GPU's to Einstein. Don't worry about bunkering. It isn't needed. Plus it is better to report while you can as the server is hit and miss still. Universe@home is hard to report and pull work because it is an Obstacle day...

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    Put your CPU's on either bunkering for Numberfields on throw 5 or leave them on Universe to pull and report what work it can. Just keep in mind that if your rig has more than one GPU, SRBase will actually only use the one that BOINC assigns as GPU0. So, either a cc_config file will be needed to...

    Just a reminder...for those with single GPU setups...we need your GPU's on SRBase until the 16th. For those running dual GPU setups and don't want to mess with advanced config setups, we need you running Einstein@home until the 18th. We plan on skipping this javelin throw. AGAIN we are SKIPPING...

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    Just a heads up on SRBase. If you have more than one GPU in a box, it will actually only use one of them. It would be better for you to either get familiar with config files or just bunker for Einstein.

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    Right now, we need all AMD and nVidia GPU's hammering away on PG until the end of the UTC day tomorrow (7PM CST). Then move them to SRBase. If you have Intel iGPU's, please start bunkering Einstein work on those. ARM work units can either be placed on Einstein or Universe. Preferrably Universe...
