    15th WCG Birthday Challenge

    Vester: You are a dedicated cruncher and I fully support your individualized settings of project "Preferences". I am concerned that any advice I give you on the Second Edit, particularly, would only confuse the issue. I am surprised that the experts out there have not already posted to give you...

    15th WCG Birthday Challenge

    Vester: A bit of good news; The world Community Grid is a "CPU" only driven research project.

    November 2018 - BOINCstats Team Challenge - GPUGrid

    Now that cool-to-cold weather has arrived I particularly enjoy the challenge of being able to direct all equipment to be fully committed continuously for the GPUGrid challenge. BUT, unfortunately there are no tasks currently available to permit getting a head-start on being the leaders of the...

    I sent a msg to the Administrator a couple days back and thanked the researchers for the extra effort of providing tasks for the Challenge. They are doing swell.

    My compliments to the GPU Grid folks; they came through quickly with a lot of work.

    October 2018 - BOINCstats Team Challenge - GPUGrid

    Just downloaded 4 long-running tasks, 2 each on my two better cards, GTX 1060's. And yes I made sure SETI was set to zero share; thanks.

    October 2018 - BOINCstats Team Challenge - GPUGrid

    Unfortunately here we go again in that we want to be Team players and likewise support the organized challenges sponsored by CSF but once again there are currently no GPU tasks available from GPUGRID for our Team to start our contribution and of course no indication when work will become...

    WCG THOR Challenge Y3 (2018)

    Unfortunately my concern came to pass but I salute Team Italy in their ability to pass us and obvious add the computing power to take over the #10 position. I did add 3 threads to the effort with a laptop with i3 CPU but that hardly at all overcame the Adriatic bordering great Italians.

    WCG THOR Challenge Y3 (2018)

    Good morning from Central Texas and just checked the crunching statistics: Team ITALY is nipping at our heels and the stats show that unless we add more power NOW the men and women of Italy will probably pass us and drop us to position 11 by the end of this day. The temperature outside has...

    September - BOINCstats Team Challenge - GPUGrid

    It appears that more work is coming down the wire for GPUs but here we are over half way through the CSF sponsored competition and yet I find it considerably difficult to secure enough GPU tasks to keep even one card crunching continually. Dr. Bob do you think it might do some good if you...

    July - BOINCstats Team Challenge - GPUGrid

    Daytime temp in Central Texas now exceeds 100F/35C ; am now reducing equipment, GTX 1060, to one operating 24 hours and an additional GTX 1060 at night. Two lesser GPUs are shut down.

    July - BOINCstats Team Challenge - GPUGrid

    Nick Name: Thanks for your comments; however I did not make clear that principally when I addressed the HEAT issue I should have said ROOM temp because with 4 GPUs and 18 CPUs running the bedroom converted to an office gets real uncomfortably warm; so far no problem on operating temps of the...
