Well, people ... *slide eyes round thread* ... it's finally happened... I've won a TLPTPW here, and there is now no avoiding the fact that you are all... minions to my whims...

Yes! :)

Awwww.... I knew you'd all be thrilled!

And enough to run to the horizons bellowing like that too... *swell really quite alarmingly with pride*

Whilst the news is being spread to every corner of our round spinning thing, I shall post the rules for the purpose of refreshing them in our bonces - and guiding any sparkling-new/budding TLPTPW's that might stray into our midst's, all of whom would be very, very welcome to too of course :)

And there they are ---v down there---v verbatim-ed for you from earlier winners' threads before mine

Hi all, it is time for a new episode of that much-beloved pastime of Collatz@Home forum: "Last One to Post Wins"

For you newbies, here are the rules:
1. To participate in the game, you must post to the prescribed thread.
2. A post must consist of at least one word.
3. A participant may not have two or more consecutive posts in the thread.
4. The winner of an episode is responsible for organizing the next episode and for choosing the winner of that episode.
5. The winner may be chosen on the basis of the date/time of the post, the number of the post in the thread (50th post; 31415th post; ...), the presence/absence of a particular word/phrase in the post, or any other reason selected by the organizer of the episode. However, the organizer of an episode is prohibited from winning that particular episode.
6. Have fun!


And to avoid confusion, there they are again, up there ---^

I shall now wait for everyone to stop being teeny-tiny specks on the horizon and begin to get quite a bit of a lot larger... Did you see that bit that says "31415th post" anniet? Yes, anniet I did... what a good idea!!! ;)

Awwwww :) thank you, Mikey. I am enjoying all my new powers immensely!

Of course that thread door is going to need widening. My head has got so big, my ears are getting a bit squished and squeezed when I try to take it with me on my travels in and out of it.

I don't get it... I widened it three feet yesterday and got through... *ooof* squEeeezE *thud* Good evening my nighttime, Mikey :)

Your horizon must have been a lot nearer to return from than everyone else's was. Although it's not impossible they got muddled turning round and went off at 90 degree angles or something. Still... not to worry. At least you're winning :) although that is whilst you're not actually winning because I'm busy with that at the moment.

Also, I have PrecisionX-16 set to run GPU Fans at 100% due to the new Collatz Optimizations I've put in.

Just reinstated Crunching Time Window from 6PM to 9AM Pacific.

Two things...first WELCOME to the game AND getting Collatz running and optimized too!!

2nd thing...how did you schedule your gpu's to only run from 6pm to 9am, or is that ALL of Boinc that only runs then? I would like my gpu's to stop during the hot days but the cpu's to keep crunching and also run Windows. I have waaay too many pc's to manually change each pc twice per day.

In BOINC Manager ---> Options ---> Computing Preferences:

Go To "Daily Schedules" Tab:

Check Box: Compute Only Between - and then set Time Preferences, IN Military Time: 18:00 to 9:00 - as per my example of 6PM to 9AM...

[EDIT:]

This Time Window makes ALL crunching stop at the specified time. Then starts up again at the next Window Cycle.


TL

[EDIT 2:]

I added "reduce_cpu=0" into the ".config", MOST of the Optimized Coding here seems to use that Line, and the Version I copied left that Line out...

After getting that in and Relaunching BOINC and temporarily removing my Crunching Window from "Daily Schedules", I tested the system running Collatz.

Mouse seems more responsive, and I can move between Open Tabs in FF more easily. Switching, (Alt-Tab), between Open Programs is still slower than normal, but I can live with that. :-)

I find sometimes a key gets stuck in its depressed state and trying to coax it into lifting itself out of its mire, all manner of garbage spills out all over the page. The most disorientating key for that in my opinion is the ... hmm... I've forgotten what it's called. The L shaped one that only looks like an L if you rotate either your head, or the keyboard 180 degrees? The line-down key? As you stare at all the sudden blankness in front of you, if you're not careful, you can convince yourself you've just deleted the entire piece of writing you were working on and become really quite rude about yourself.

*sidle warily around Mikey and TL's technical discussion* It's a pleasure to play host to you all though, it really is :) Obviously I'm under no illusions that each visitation is a plot to wrest my supreme rule for yourselves but who wouldn't blame you for that... well... excessively anyway ;)

missing apostrophe edit. It isn't now though...

Getting back to that winning thing you're not doing... here *point there* ...is a big bucket of cold water :) Feel free to throw it over yourselves, or each other. Yes, do! It'll save me having to do it then ;)
