@David Reese: won't be passing you for at least a few more days :)

@mikey: should I look to see if I have any old MB around you could use. I used to run a dual 1366 Xeon machine; not sure what I did with the parts.

Winning

(P.S. @Katherine: I'm not good with names/faces either. Adds to the stress)

I don't think it's a lack of WUs. According to the messages when asking for work, I'm requesting a bunch of time, but the server isn't returning any work. Thinking maybe the host is marked not reliable or something.

Wonder if this machine has been marked "unreliable" or something else such that the server won't download WUs to it?

Thanks for the response. That did the trick. Now to figure out why I'm not getting any work. I've already detached/reattached to the project, and it is requesting work:

I'm trying to enable "sched_op_debug" in the BOINC client using my cc_config. I've tried enabling it thus:

"<cc_config>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
<skip_cpu_benchmarks>1</skip_cpu_benchmarks>
<report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
<sched_op_debug>1</sched_op_debug>
<!--<exclude_gpu>
<url>https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/</url>
<device_num>0</device_num>
<type>NVIDIA</type>
</exclude_gpu>
<exclude_gpu>
<url>https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/</url>
<device_num>1</device_num>
<type>NVIDIA</type>
</exclude_gpu>-->
</options>
</cc_config>

This hasn't worked. Please provide guidance.

Thanks!

Well, rats! Got to the party a bit late; one workstation isn't getting work - because they're aren't any available?

I know we're all having problems getting WUs for NVidia cards, but just to confirm:
I have a machine that's running with a 1060 and 1070 Hybrid that won't get WUs. This machine also has a Radeon Pro WX5100, and I still get Collaz Wus for that card.
Isn't this fun? :)

@David Riese: best of luck with whatever is about to transpire. I'm jealous of Mikey (because he's retired)

But at least I'm winning!

Belly up to the bar folks. I'm posting to say how awesome it is to walk into a store and find clothes that fit with no hassle. Bariatric surgery was the best thing I've ever done for myself.

Really happy for you.

And, I just crossed 4B here.

And I'm winning :)

Thanks for the explain. And just for completeness, the repeated posts were caused because I was getting an error message, so I retried. 3 times apparently :)
