I feel terrible about this but ever since stats broke due to regulations, I haven't been motivated to keep my rigs crunching. Though I am rationalizing it with the hot weather in my area making it difficult to keep my house cool with 2 servers running. All rigs are currently off. I feel like a scumbag. The stats game was not totally my motivation but it certainly did make it fun. I guess for the summer I'll be quiet on the crunching front. Hopefully freedc or anyone else can finagle a way to make stats work without breaking the law.

No worries, happens every summer due to heat/power concerns.

since stats broke due to regulations,

I am an admittedly lazy person. I don't like to do math and freedc had a lot more team based stats. I just liked the layout/comparisons i suppose.

I had to stop last weekend for a couple of days. It got really hot here in the SF Bay Area. Of course, my apartment doesn't have any A/C. But the marine layer came back, and I'm back folding and crunching away. :)

Can anyone point me in the direction of a DVI switch? I currently have 3 Cruncher's using the same monitor and I wish I could use a switch, to see them. I have a couple more boxes I am adding, that will be sharing the same Monitor.

I have a wireless mouse and a usb keyboard and they are easy to switch around on the front ports. The DVI cable though, is cumbersome and time consuming.

I have Teamviewer available but, if I need to power down, I need to switch between them and get the new passwords. Also, I have been having issues, occasionally, with connecting to them. The Cruncher's are Linux and my laptop is W8.1. They don't update together and there are some headaches I have not had time to debug.

So, any suggestions?

If you setup an account with Teamviewer, you don't have to do that. Once the systems are logged into your account, you will see a list of them when you login to Teamviewer. Just don't be like me and lose the account password.

Very touching story and what a kid :) A sad loss for sure :( Let's hope that all this crunching we do, helps and goes far to help others out there :)

Can anyone point me in the direction of a DVI switch? I currently have 3 Cruncher's using the same monitor and I wish I could use a switch, to see them. I have a couple more boxes I am adding, that will be sharing the same Monitor.

:lovetpu:
If you setup Teamviewer right, you can log into them and save them as other PC's and it works really well. Both of my Crunchers are on Linux and use Teamviewer, no worries of passwords or keyboards or mice, they just work.. Only downside is that if you don't have them connected to a screen, the crappy screen res might do your head in as it drives me crazy..
I do turn my crunchers off every night as they really enjoy the juice and I've got to be a little careful with how much I'm spending.. Electric costs without the solar would be crazy, so this is why I put everything on to run during the day as soon as I get up from about 6:30am till about 9pm at night every day..

Failing Teamviewer, have you considered trying a VM of some description?? Might be another way to monitor them and not have any issues with passwords etc??

How's everybody doing? This summer is hot and humid down here in South Florida but I hope everyone else is doing better. Been pretty busy with stuff so I've been absent lately.
Hope all is well with the team! :toast:
Doing well here thanks :) Only downside is the near 30C temps.. Normally my SR2 is crunching 24 threads about 40C, with this heat I've seen them up to 52C at the moment!! Thank god I've no overclocked them!! lol Not sure what the server temps are like, but it seems so much hotter upstairs than down it's a right pain!! I think I'm going to invest in a fan for the PC room so it's can push some air around, I hope that might help issues!!

How is yours going @manofthem ?? :)

Every time I turn one of the cruncher's off, it creates a new password for that machine. So, I have to change out the DVI cableand log in and copy the new password down to try and log in, which it is now unnecessary because the DVI is now on it...

First, create an account with teamviewer: https://community.teamviewer.com/t5...a-TeamViewer-account-Video-tutorial/ta-p/7882
Then:
https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/What-is-a-TeamViewer-Account/ta-p/4442

Edit, again: @Arjai , I can't find the directions that I followed, but it's basically:
Create account
Assign each system to that account.
Grant Easy Access

You only have to do this once. Once I figured this out, I was amazed at how easy it was. If the systems fail to boot headless, you may have to change a setting in BIOS that says something along the lines of "Stop on all errors", which will stop the booting process because of the "no keyboard found" error.

@thebluebumblebee
Will Teamviewer load in the backround, so as I can log into the Linux box remotely? Also, I will check out the links you provided, later...I just have a few minutes before work. I appreciate you taking the time with me on this. It has been frustrating, to say the least. It will be Saturday night, or more likely, Sunday, before I get to this. I will keep you posted.

Edit: Also, I thought I had an account set up, unless you mean a paid account, which I don't have, if that is a thing? The boxes are all there, when I open TV, but recently, they went offline, and previously, I'd have to copy new passwords after a re-boot or an upgrade of TV. So, that "Easy Access" sounds (to me) too good to be true! I HOPE this works!!

@thebluebumblebee

Just got done updating the crunchers and getting them set up on Teamviewer. Thanks for your help. Turns out, last time I was messing with them, the "Start with System" was not on. That solved the problem of them being offline. Then I was able to put them on "Easy Access".

Thanks again!!

Planned Maintenance on Tuesday, July 10

5 Jul 2018

Summary
We are updating the operating system on our servers on Tuesday, July 10, beginning at 14:00 UTC.




We will be applying an important operating system update to our servers on Tuesday, July 10, beginning at 14:00 UTC. We anticipate that the work will take approximately four hours.

During this time, volunteers will not be able to upload or download new work, and the World Community Grid website will not be accessible. No action is required by you, as your devices will automatically retry their connections after the maintenance work is completed.

We appreciate your patience and participation.
;)

Thank you my good man!! Although when I Googled it I came up empty.. Maybe I had boobies or something in there as well and didn't notice...... :)

On another note, where did you find that out @Norton as I couldn't see it for looking??

Silly question but, I want to be sure. Just woke up and checked the result of the DPS test result on RushCity1, the i3 cruncher I bought this past Winter, the drive died. A Toshiba 500 HDD. I have a laptop drive I am going to replace it with.

I have had issues with static, recently, and bought some wrist straps so I can protect from that. My question is, with the little i3 box on my lap, unplugged, can I be safe with the strap attached to the case? Should I wear my shoes?

I don't have a table to work on and my desk is just big enough for this laptop, I am writing this on (small-ish apartment and no place for a work station).

Thanks, I don't want to, and can't afford to, trash anymore DDR3 because I am electric! :laugh:

:lovetpu: I will check back later this morning. I still have some more sleeping to do!

I've never had a problem with static yet but I tend to work on the desks without any issues.. Have you any cardboard or a motherboard box you could perhaps put in under the laptop or rest things on? Might help you out a bit there...? Maybe some rubber wellies?? :)

I almost bought some 'wellies' (Wellington Boots, for those who aren't privy) a while back. Realized I probably wouldn't need them more than once. Got by with some plastic bag booties.

I have had issues with static charge, a couple of times, in this apartment. Not exactly sure why but, I have a pizza box, some rubber sole shoes and some wrist straps.

Wish me luck!! I am going to throw some coffee on and dig in.

BTW @phill thanks for the cardboard suggestion!

:lovetpu:
edit: OK, HDD is in. It is a 5400 rpm'er. It came from my LappyTop and has an old version of Win8 on it. I was toying, briefly, with leaving it that way, updating and so forth. Then, the moment of clarity. I am now going to load it with Mint, screw messing with Windows for a Cruncher. OK, back at it, that 5400 is gonna take some extra time!!

edit2: It is now 20 minutes later and it is now Crunching! I will do any updates tonight, after work.

I'm glad I was of some help.. I'm possibly not as worried about static as I should be but RMA's are for a reason lol I'm not sure a cruncher would mind being on an HDD rather than a SSD, but that said, I do seem to be installing everything with SSDs regardless..
Whilst at work last week we had to reinstall a PC with XP on it.. SSD'd it and boy was that a fast booting OS!! :D

Oh and @Arjai , Linux is best for Crunching so I have no doubt that you'd possibly see an increase in your production from going from Windows :)

Don't like the first part. ( :mad: Boo!) But I like your solution in the second part. :cool:

I hope it gets fixed nice and quickly!! Just think of all those uploads and the sheer points you'll get from all those work units going back :D
