Have you got power, Mikey? I see your stats are way down.

(P.S. - I'm winning)


Yes I got it back yesterday evening but with more rain coming and the possibility of another power outage it will be a few days before I'm fully back up again.

And I am winning!!

<The real issue behind (some) GC user has nothing to do with a confusion between CPU and GPU (there).>

Edit : Maybe I'm confusing with several issues here, time went by... what I remember is a problem of "fake results" = loads of tasks being apparently calculated in a few seconds by anonymous hosts (no GPU) by GC users, and a discussion where a GC "admin" (or at least power user) would come in the topic and comment they were actually fighting that at their end in GC, so it was not fantasy... but now I'd have to find the real discussion / forum / topic about this...


GC was not the problem and still isn't, it was a user who cheated and got caught, and yes they did happen to be a member of the GC community, but they could have been a member of any team or even no team. Your own team has thousands if not tens of thousands of members, are you going sit here and say that not one single one of them has ever cheated? I would HOPE you could, and that I could say the same thing about my own team, but I can't say that and neither can you, waaay too many people involved that we don't personally know. And in point of fact an Admin at GC was one of the people who pointed out the cheating to the Admin here at Collatz saying that the results needed checking because their results were outside the norm.

I am winning while waiting for Hurricane Florence to decide which wiggle or waggle will be the one that brings her on shore somewhere around me.
I live 40 miles South of Wilmington NC and am riding this storm out in my new home 1.5 miles from the beach, but 30 feet above sea level too.
Right now it's predicted to be a Category 2 when it hits land somewhere 'near' me which means my only concern is the rain, but even though I do have
grass for a yard right under the grass is sand. And if anyones been to the beach you know water runs right thru sand, in fact if I don't run the inground
sprinkler system 2 to 3 times per week the grass turns very brown like in the middle of the Winter.

Good luck, and God bless Mikey.

I'd MUCH rather go through CA Earthquakes than go through Tornadoes and Hurricanes... :-O

I've done both, was in Japan and Alaska for 3 years each as a kid and didn't much care for waking up to the ground shaking. I've been in a MUCH older beach house that shook, rattled and cracked and creaked during a Cat 3 hurricane when my kids were younger, now I'm in a under 2 year old brand new home all on one level built to the latest codes and this storm is only a Cat 2, all that meaning I think I'll be just fine. I also have a whole house generator so can have the power on whenever I want too.
13) Questions and Answers : Windows : New version of collatz constant HDD write (Message 1028)
Posted 13 days ago by Profile mikey
Post:
After deleting the old project and adding the new Collatz, I noticed constant HDD usage - my HDD blinks 2 times per second for hours. I checked in resource monitor - collatz_sieve_1.40_windows_x86_64.exe was constantly writing on my drive. When I pause the task HDD is working normal. It wasn't like that with the old project. Can you fix this, because if not, I have to shut it down - I don't want to wear out my drive. Thanks.


Go into the Boinc Manager and change the checkpoint settings to 900 seconds. Options, computing preferences, computing tab, bottom line. Be sure to click ok to save the setting.

One other thought is that SSD drives don't 'wear out', they are memory chips so can fail but not 'wear out' since there's no moving parts.

Hi again everyone, Corrected... computers are now visible.
Kind regards,
Gentilli.


And I see that you are getting tasks for both gpu's but you are also aborting the tasks too:

8364027 7336316 10 Sep 2018, 9:18:20 UTC 10 Sep 2018, 10:31:28 UTC Aborted 0.00 0.00 --- Collatz Sieve v1.30 (opencl_ati_gpu)
windows_x86_64
8365098 7337226 10 Sep 2018, 9:12:49 UTC 10 Sep 2018, 10:04:08 UTC Aborted 1,088.03 2.69 --- Collatz Sieve v1.30 (opencl_nvidia_gpu)
windows_x86_64

The first workunit is for your AMD gpu while the second workunit is for the Nvidia gpu.

Hi everyone, Collatz does not allow me to run 2 different video cards at the same time and yes there is CPU time available for both cards.
Anyone have a suggestion?

Also Collatz is keeping me from running PrimeGrid Cuda apps at the same time on the GT740, it seems to want only 1 GPU to work at a time.
I don't have this problem with PrimeGrid running both GPU's simultaneously.


Thanking you in advance,
Gentilli.


Since your computers are hidden most people can't help you because they have zero clue what type of OS you run or anything else.
