Re: Hardware Haiku

Stock intel cpu coolers won't keep an i7 cool, not if it's got turbo enabled and you run it wide open. You'll need something like a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO or better. I almost binned a socket 1155 board and i7-3770 because I used the stock cooler and It couldn't cope. And I thought -at first- th...

I remember having an argument with someone about attainment levels in Education. They completely refused to accept my throwaway assertion that 50% of pupils were below average.
By definition you are right -and the opposite is true also : 50% of pupils will be above average.

Re: PrimeGrid Fix for Slow Forums

Fact is that the TSBT-site loads a lot slower the last week or so.
Bok's server has periodic trouble the last weeks, Sebastien's server broke yesterday: someone has it in for our hobby.

However I do think that people should stick to a reasonable size of signature provided by only one site. Multiple signatures or signatures that extend down rather than across the page and that take up half the page can be annoying.

Re: New BOINC cruncher just arrived

Hello fellow BOINC crunchers, I just started "boincing" recently with purpose to use old computers and to do something good at the same time. That must have been my original motive too, back at the end of last century. Before I knew it I had a pile of IBM PS/2's and Dell Pentium 200 MMX machines -a...

Re: troublesome

I don't know if this is pertinent information or not. Mumps, a huge cruncher for SUSA, is a big time Linux user. I know that he has had problems with older AMD cards and the newer Linux kernels. Apparently there were "hooks" in the older linux distributions that the driver relied upon to make them ...

Re: troublesome

The OpenCL 1.1 is at the one hand pathetic -Windows will gladly report OpenCL 2.0 for the same cards- and at the other hand indicative for the Open Source driver. Collatz still runs with OpenCL 1.1, PrimeGrid seems to needs more. You can perhaps look into the WUs processed as to why they failed, but...
