Seems extremely modest if a person has spent any serious money on GPU's and as you say electricity and air conditioning.

Why would a person want to do GC for that return ?

Coin volunteers help the project with science results and by bringing new crunching volunteers to the project.

Coin volunteers also by impact or destabilize some projects with Load and impact. It is a win / lose deal. Part of life....

For us non-coin volunteers we were here before ... we are here with and if the coin volunteers leave we will be here after.

As to Seti GPU applications and WU's ... below is a list of Applications by platform that are currently available and being distributed. I am processing Windows 64 GPU units at this time.

Volumes being run on right side of page.

If you are not getting GPU WU's then I respectfully suggest that it may be a problem in your system or project user profile.

If you create a Profile many projects will also list you as User of the Day. This is where the Little Green Wreath numbers in my signature come from.

Until our Admin gets back from vacation and has a chance to work the validation issue one option is to "pause" new work from this project. If you are subscribed to this message thread you can watch for updates as they come out.

We all have back up projects or should have as there are plenty of good projects out there.

For download purposes the Open CL version is 2.0 correct ?

Could that be preventing some devices from down loading ? I have heard that not all OS loads with the vanilla drivers support Open CL or the 2.0 level.

P.S. If you could take a peek at Team creation to see if it could be easily turned back on it would be helpful for us new Teams
