Happy Cæk-day, @mjkmike!
Well then, have a great Birthday!!!
Here's your present:
Spoiler: Warning- cannot be unseen!!!
Happy Birthday Mike!!! Hope your having a great day brother!
Happy B-day Mj, I hope it is going to be a great day for you.
Air conditioners' out in the university for the last [lost count] days. Had to turn quite some sh*t off.
MAYBE going to get fixed today.
You have been working them too hard!
Aye, it explains your slightly lowered output. No worries, all's well; just tell them to hurry up and get it fixed.
It has been a long since I last posted around here, but does anyone knows if GPU units will be back at some point? When?
That is something I think no one knows for sure. We all wish they would bring it back!
I thought they were coming back soon.
That would be sweet for sure.
I know a few of us that have gpu's in storage wish they would come back.
@Norton would know. For the time being, the F@H team would not mind the help.
No current plans at WCG yet afaik- However, I wouldn't be surprised if they just popped up out of the blue
Some of those beta gpu wu's would be nice right now.
umm ok, well I do generally run boinc in adobe flash.
I added +3 Phenom II X6 1075T to the fleet and if luck shines, will add one more next week. (sig edited for this. also listed the Xeons in the sig along with that)
Also, next week I am switching to crunch only on MCM && CEP2 for the challenge if FAAH keeps up with the crap points.
Anyone know what the primary UI process is in Windows Server 2012/8.1? When BOINC is running at 100%, the Windows UI becomes unresponsive. I want to try changing it to high priority and see what happens.
explorer.exe? At least, I suppose the the WM is still the same as before and an important chunk.
All I could see in the list was Windows Explorer.exe which I think is the file browser.
Prior to Win8 and server equivalents, the background process "explorer" acted as the Window Manager (I also believe some libs were shared among IE, the FM (Windows Explorer) and some other stuff). So I figured that as long the FM is not active, explorer.exe is still the WM. I would not know how to identify the display server etc. Sorry, I suck too much to be of better assistance XD.
P.S.: Hey, do you know that awkward moment when Win lets you know Explorer needs to be restarted because it kicked the bucket? In such situations the taskbar etc. be gone too because they need to be, say, restarted). So I was onto something there, in terms of me not being full of sh**
I know it is explorer on Windows 7 but I'm not seeing an explorer process in Windows Server 2012. It probably is still explorer.exe but it has a different name.
Edit: The thought occurred to me that I should just enable the Process Name column and sure enough, Windows Explorer = explorer.exe. I changed it to high and it seems to have helped some. I really don't want to slow BOINC down for the rare instance I need to work with the server.
With the challenge coming up, I'd like to maximize the points that I can get. I've been following along and I'm seeing that Linux is the way to go but I know noth'n 'bout Linux. Is there a guide that I could use...?
