    "output file xxxx for task xxxx absent" looks like the error but I don't remember seeing that before? :confused:

    What version of Windows is this?

    I really am confused. I had that issue on one of my HPs back in December--I reset the project and now all works.

    I'd try BOINC 7.0.42 BETA and see if that helps

    I think home server has issues running BOINC- iirc t_ski tried it and ran into errors. Check home server compatibility before going any further ;)

    I've given up on trying to get it to work on the file server and stuck it into a quad core I had laying around, I guess that'll just crunch with the cpu

    Yep, it's true - mine locked up within a few days. I think it's due to the half-breed combination of Vista and Server 2003, but I'm not sure.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I will be adding another 6 cores to my fleet this week with an fx 8350 and 7970 or 2 coming very soon. Then I will pick up another 7850 to go with the one I already have. which will bring my total to 34 cores and 5 maybe 6 gpus. :toast:

    Good deal! :toast:

    I have some more gpu action on the way and planning out another rig as well. Hope to add 2 gpus and at least 6-8 cores to my fleet over the next month or so. :)

    @ThE_MaD_ShOt & Norton: that's awesome news and its encouraging to the rest of us :respect: and I know you guys aren't the only ones, as we have seen many members adding and upgrading parts :respect:; just look at the pie. :eek: I still haven't managed to get anywhere with a new rig, but I'm still hoping.... :eek:

    Keep up the fine work gents ;) :toast:

    I'll be flying back home to Spain in a couple of days, and will probably be there a couple of months before returning to UK. Need to get my driving license and perhaps have some free time to relax and get away from all the usual stress.

    Wanted to leave the crunchers running unattended but had to power down the SR-2 with 2x7950's due to more tech gremlins. The 2700K with 2x7970's seems to be OK though it's running at a modest 4GHz and stock GPU clocks due to heat. Gonna see if I can cobble together a rig to run at least one of the 7950's but with so little time, not sure if it's possible.

    Won't be around as much whilst in Spain, so just want to wish everyone here a good 2013. Keep on crunching and being the awesome team we all love to return to. :toast:

    If you need me to I can add a GPU to my server, to crunch while you are away? i'm at 4k per day, going to overhaul and get 8k per day when i add another CPU.
    Also i need to send your 5450 back, i got hold of a 9600gso for free from a friend turns out neither can run GPU WU XD

    Have a great holiday!!! happy new year

    We'll keep the porch light on for you and put on a fresh pot of coffee when you stop by. :)

    You might as well hang on to it for a little bit. Not going to have anyone around to collect it till later on so will probably be returned as deliverable.

    I had already thought of lending out the GPU's to keep em crunching but I'm going to be busy tomorrow running errands for people. The SR-2 just waited for the worst possible time to ruin my day.

    Impressive!

    That is a very welcome addition! I'm getting my DP Xeon within a week (it will be shipped tomorrow) and I'm planning on a Tahiti LE GPU for it.

    But where am I going to go for all my GPU related hijink issues? ;)

    Have fun and get some relaxation. We will miss you and look forward to your return! Glad to see your 2700k/7970s will be running though, similar to my own setup :)

    My mother is in her 2nd full month of treatment. She's 73, and has a variety of other health issues for most of her life. Her cancer is 2/3rds gone now. Simply not possible, but it is. Keep crunching, and keep saying prayers for those who need it. It works!

    Hang on johnspack! And your mother as well.

    On another note: The "Computing for Clean Water" WUs are back (but for me they are the first for that project).

    I figured the dual Xeon system is going to need a GPU.....

    Well done! :toast: :rockout: :respect:

    I'm already solidly top-500 by results returned (388), but it'll take a bit longer to get top-500 by points (528) or run time (1595).

    Noticed 5 computation errors on the 6770, decided to suspend GPU WUs on it until I can investigate the issue. Maybe it just didn't like being loaded 24/7 for the past 2 weeks straight without a break :laugh:

    This week has been rough for me PPD wise. I took down the P55 system for a day to swap cases with my home rig, the Mushkin Chronos 240GB SSD I got a month ago in my home rig died during the case swap (still have my 500GB hybrid drive that I didn't erase, but lost a ****load of data including the source files for a TF2 map I poured a ton of time into last week), and my 7950 got its new cooler installed last night but it has been sitting on my desk curing. Hopefully the heatsinks cured properly and my GPU doesn't shut off when overclocked to a certain point anymore, but RMAing it will probably be next to impossible now since it has heatsinks glued on. Also have a pending sale on my K9A2 Platinum/965BE combo so that's packed up as of today and the deal will probably close tonight or tomorrow.
