    Thanks. Four of the six rigs are putting out decent numbers, but I still need those last two to come back up.

    I have 3 of my 5 still trying to get back to where they we're. Two are about there but the i7 920 is still battling with the "man". Most of it's results are going to the "we don't trust you right now so go sit and deal with it pile"

    Killed my Kill-A-Watt with a measly 1250w/125v average continuous load for a couple weeks. It died within the last two hours (I was helping my dad hang 18 troffer fluorescent light fixtures at the new place) because the computers were on when I stopped in for supplies and everything including the UPS was dead when we got back. Devices like this should really be rated for continuous wattage as well because it's ridiculous that the plastic will singe and the device breaks down with a mere 65% load. The device it was feeding was a 1200VA UPS that is rated for 13A total input and has a 14ga cable that didn't seem to get too hot at all, and it also has a circuit breaker built in. I can try purchasing a new thermal fuse (SEFUSE SF96U-1) and soldering it in, but I have no idea if I can purchase one individually and if I can even get one at a decent price.

    I got one, using it only to know what the power consumption of a computer, then remove it after. but that sucks :( Kill-a-watt has been killed xD

    Yeah, pretty much any wall taps I have used have had outlets do the same discoloration on them, especially when I had that one FX-8150 system with two GTX 460s. I did acknowledge that the plug on the UPS was rather extremely warm when I booted everything back up, so I took one rig off the UPS and plugged it straight into the wall to bring the load on the UPS down to ~1000w (the actual battery backup only supports 800w but I use the two surge only outlets on it as well).

    If you own said device and you are running a heavy load, my advice is to only use it temporarily and not as a permanent fixture. :)

    It seems that the stuck WUs do indeed finish after all. The server core I dedicated to WCG finally returned a valid result but it took 80 hours.

    Are the projects drying ? I am enrolled in FightAIDS@home only. From many days now it is showing two types : AutoDock 7.15 and Vina 7.06 . Vina is short version around 20 -30 mins and my problem is many times it is showing computation error resulting my ppd down from 2500 to 1900 . Now i have enrolled for clean energy phase 2 also .

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    The Vina 7.06 where just released a few days ago due to problems with the 7.03's. Make sure which ones are erroing out. Also what are the system specs of the rig with the errors and cpu speed?

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I will say this, and this my experience alone. I upgraded to 7.0.64 on 4 of my rigs due to the problems with the Vina 7.03 wus. I ended up have bad issues with 7.0.64 on 3 of them. I have since rolled back to the Wcg version 6.10.58. I started reading up on things and noticed that Wcg is holding off updating there version until version 8 comes out and they can prove it to be stable enough for them. So if wcg is skipping version 7 of the boinc client that means something.

    As you are rolled back to earlier version , if i get more errors tomorrow i will jump to latest 7.2.5 64bit.
    If it still persist i will also try 6.10.58. (does this version is radically different? ) I started crunching since this year february only.


    P.S. http://http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php This link doesn't have 6.10.58. Only 6.6.38

    iirc... 6.10.58 is the one available for download on the WCG website.

    *Note- I'm using 7.0.42 and haven't seen the issue with the FAAH Vina wu but YMMV

    "Just" 1000w :p

    I am very tempted to pick one up and get some exact numbers--the software estimations + extrapolation is decent but probably not the whole story.

    I'm sure some people have already seen this, but I have my original ASUS Nexus 7 for sale. It even crunches! http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=188047

    Also had a nasty storm rip through work today, causing quite a few brown and temporary blackouts. Everything still works, however, which is good. At the least, the rain cooled down the outside air by a good 15 degrees or so. :)

    Yeah, we had a bit of bad weather today too, actually last few weeks we have had nasty storms roll in most afternoons. Crazy weather for this crazy summer!

    I've o ly had to shut stuff downs a few times due to inane lightning though so all in all not too bad.

    @Norton: looking good, look forward to more of your build.

    Had a very odd thunderstorm a few hours ago.
    Why odd? Over 30 lightning strikes a minute, as reported by the national hydro-meteorology service. Meanwhile, I only got like, 5 raindrops in my area. No rain; lotsa lightning. Okay...
    Also massive thunderstorm is forecasted for this evening. BAH
