    15th WCG Birthday Challenge

    I have an app_config.xml in the milkyway project folder. The app_config.xml for WCG did not change anything. I tried several other ways, too, but I suspect that it wants the specific project(s) to be named. Here's what I have done. I am running WCG on all four cores. That reduced the number...

    15th WCG Birthday Challenge

    Billy, I don't want to have a bottleneck by using the CPU that would possibly decrease GPU performance, but I will try it for a while. Edit: It runs two WCG jobs while running 18 Milkyway work units on the 6 GPUs. While waiting for more GPU work, it runs 4 cores on WCG. My Intel(R)...

    When being in the top ten at Milkyway was not enough...a third HD 7990 was added

    USA is in 8th place and I have enough crunching power to get us past SETI's current RAC. Of course I would like more of our members to run Milkyway so that we can also pass L'Alliance Francophone (6th) and BOINC Australia (5th).

    15th WCG Birthday Challenge

    I would join you, but my four cores are busy supporting 6 GPUs running Milkyway. Good luck. I joined United Devices in January of 2002 on the anthrax project.

    Our team is in 9th place and should overtake 8th place later today!

    When being in the top ten at Milkyway was not enough...a third HD 7990 was added

    The AT&T technician installed a new fixed wireless antenna and a new router today. It was not easy to keep my computer running Milkyway on my smartphone's hotspot for three days. We should be able to get into 8th place with our current fleet, but it would be nice to have some more Radeon VIIs...

    When being in the top ten at Milkyway was not enough...a third HD 7990 was added

    The 2000 watt power supply was cancelled by vendor. The current setup is working fine with the power supply adapter and the rig is running on about 100 watts less power than before, now about 950 watts. I am having internet connectivity problems and my output will suffer until the AT&T Fixed...

    When being in the top ten at Milkyway was not enough...a third HD 7990 was added

    We will go higher! I just added my third HD 7990 and the rig is running fine. I decided that I did not need to connect the second power supply to the motherboard's second 24 pin connector. I removed the connector at the motherboard and installed a daisy chain connector that I had bought last...

    When being in the top ten at Milkyway was not enough...a third HD 7990 was added

    This is a mining rig motherboard (ASUS B250 MINING EXPERT) with three 24 pin connectors for three sections that have 6 PCIe x1 connectors in each section. My main problem, as I see it, is that I am supposed to fill the PCIe x1 slots in one section before going to the next section served by the...

    My rig is back online after I shut down in August due to heat (weather) and frustration with lock-ups. We had four months of summer weather here in Upstate South Carolina and the heat wave finally subsided about two weeks ago. I relocated the rig from a bedroom to the laundry/storage/back...

    SETI@Home Wow!-Event 2019

    I am running Seti until the queue is empty. I am almost out of the top ten at MilkyWay after a week of "coasting."

    SETI@Home Wow!-Event 2019

    I may as well stop running SETI today with numbers like these: Validation pending (599) · Validation inconclusive (15) · Valid (888). About forty percent of the work has not been validated throughout the Wow! event.

    SETI@Home Wow!-Event 2019

    And now we are 33! I am running with 540 tasks in the category validation pending. What happens at the end of the Wow! event? Do I get credit for them, or should one start running the challenges a few days before the events begin?

    Dr. Bob, the WU is not listed in the Transfer Tab, and a search in Program Data | BOINC for 148_1 is negative.

    Seti task 100%...stuck on Uploading

    I had already tried rebooting. I disabled networking for about 20 minutes and enabled again. It uploaded four completed tasks and that one is still "Uploading." I won't worrry about it. I will detach next week.

    Seti task 100%...stuck on Uploading

    Other completed tasks are uploading, but this one has been in BOINC Manager as Uploading for about twelve hours. The photo tells it all. I will only run Seti another week, but does anyone know how to get this thing uploaded?

    Lessons re-learned: 1. If you have just changed something to improve your computer's performance, don't leave the house. I lost about an hour and a half at Wow! Event. Seti. 2. Change one thing at a time so you will have a clue what didn't work!
