    Still getting "HTTP Internal Server Error" on the GTX470 system and intermittent downloads on the GTX460 system :confused:

    EDIT: I deleted the BOINC AppData folder, re-installed BOINC, and have re-attached to WCG. Things now appear to be back to normal. I've learned not to mess with things that I don't fully understand :p

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well guys my internet is out at my house. I have no ideal whats going on yet. Hopefully they get it fixed today. All my equipment is checking good so it's not on my end. I am going to make a call in a little bit to see whats up. So my numbers are going to be down today.

    That sucks man! You have a android phone you could tether it so it could alteast download enough work for today then disconnect the internet.

    The GPU's were restarted again at 7AM :) Lets get more numbers in!

    Sorry to hear about that. Hopefully your cache at least keeps things going to a little while :toast:

    That sucks :( Hope they get you back on-line soon....

    If you have an Android phone you can use EasyTether to get some temp internet access for your systems (not sure if there's an iphone equivalent).

    *Edit- Brandon beat me to it.....

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    My buffers are set for 3 days so the rigs have work to do. Lets hope they get it fixed before they run out. I may run out of gpu units very quickly though. Seems to only buffer a couple hours of work for them. It may actually be out of those now, I didn't check that rig this morning just the ubuntu rigs. LOL

    Does Ubuntu run the GPU WUs as well?

    And yes, I have noticed that BOINC doesn't store very many of the GPU WUs. I guess because they're new perhaps there's a shorter supply?

    I'm sorry to hear about this. But don't worry, you won't lose a lot of points with that GPU WU because of Inet disconnection. WCG server maintaince will begin after 2 hours and we'll all be in an equal position:)

    Apparently there is an outage in my area and they don't know when it will be fixed. Oh well rigs will get a cool down period. If I am not on this weekend you'll know why. LOL

    I wish I had the money to invest in some crunching more crunching hardware. The great thing about X79 is the 40 PCI-E lanes. I still have two PCI-E slots @ 8x that could be used if I get single slot cards. Two single-slot 6670s could make a sizable impact. Sigh. :eek:

    Well, my GTX460s have been idle for about five hours, somehow the i7-860 rig lost internet access early this morning. That, however, has been fixed, and they're crunching again :toast:

    Sittin in Atlanta waiting for a flight. Feeling fortunate that I can surf with the Blackberry and catch up with TPU. How do I set-up the GPU app for the cards I have?

    What cards do you have? If you check the GPU compatibility list, G9x/G8x cards aren't supported. If your cards are supported, however, go here, enable GPU computing, and let BOINC do the rest. You must of course allow BOINC to do GPU computing, which required a non-service install.

    Hope you can get online soon mad!

    I might just have to let my 6850 get a crack at it. Didn't enable it because of heat but with the amount of work they can get done, why not? :D

    Well, I see GPU activities, but it doesn't seems to consume alot from what I see.... my HD6950 is doing quite alot of work with this.. I think I'll see with CPU at max, stop GPU and run GPu to see how much watt.

    I'll do that when I'll be back from work :)

    Well, for the better GPU's, the CPU-only time of the WU's seems to be significant.

    Given that it should be as fast as both i7s put together, I'd definitely crunch on it :toast:

    Heat should be a minor issue with a 6850... most Radeons are running pretty cool with these AFAIK. Not sure on the NVidia cards???

    WCG is down for maintenance- anyone know what time they are due to come back online and start uploading/downloading again?

    They claimed 12 hours. I'm not sure from what time to start the countdown. From 15pm UTC? Or from this moment?

    EDIT:
    WCG server seems to work ATM.

    I hope it doesn't take twelve hours, because I would have run out of GPU WUs by then. I think I only have five hours or so left :ohwell:
