Perhaps this should be in the FAQ's?

I'm recreating the configuration files and am finding different description of how the files are names and what format the contents are in.

I'm seeing reference to app.config and collatz_sieve.config
Which is correct?

The contents.
I'm seeing instructions for XML format "<open> </close>
as well as old school text format " parameter=value"

Per usual with internet-based instructions everything is a mess and written by people who... well, were not English majors.

Can I get a hand here?

Thanks,
Doug

It will "...discard the desktop surface buffer and re-create the allocation from DWM"

I rather doubt this will affect Boinc much at all, but I'll be curious to tinker with it.

Is there a list of these bizarre key combinations.
I've seen dozens of them, but this was never included.

I've been in the tech realm for decades and have never heard of this.
Very odd, but I'll try it next time things get wonky.
Should I yell, "Hold my beer" first?

GPU is bouncing all over the place, temperature is down in the 30's (C) and little is getting done.

Any ideas what is going on?

With the expanding list of GPU's out there I'm curious is anyone has done a comparison of the Collatz-specific utility of these monsters. More specifically, I'm talking about more than the Nvidia RTX models, but things like their V100, P100, A10, A40 & A100.

I was working on optimizing my RTX 2080 and things started failing left and right. The fact I was in the middle of changing configs didn't help. Glad to hear it's not me.

Interesting finding. Thanks for the sleuthing.
It seems these errors are still occurring.
It seems there are bugs lurking.

Very cool. I was pondering setting up a system to heat my house with GPUs before it occurred to me, that was silly.

Hi,
Thanks for getting back to me.
My computer ID is 855154 hostname 'Alien'.

You might have someone on your infrastructure team do a cursory review of your systems. Things appear to be working absurdly slowly on your web site.
