    Sorry, never heard of it. Is it something Cheech and Chong would have liked?
    No it was a DC project look at my Sig And here I thought most long term DE'ers heard about it
    If you were I would have included a surprise of it in your package

    Good idea I just ordered a 6'X8' greenhouse online Thanks for the idea Bigred

    You could probably heat one three times that size. Let's see, sell vegies to help pay for elec. and parts.

    And that still puts the time frame to pass me around Christmas.

    I don't need help in paying for the parts or elect. If I did I would not have so much output
    My Time is the major factor of my upgrades and output

    I just thought I you as your output was down yesterday

    As for around Christmas.All I have to do is to install one of these New 5800's and it will wipe out that theory

    Well it looks like today is your lucky day. I came to work and it was 37c (102f) in the shop.
    One of the air conditioners quit. I won't be able to replace it till near the end of next month so I had no choice except to start shutting down machines.

    Keep em cool.

    Yeah at least you were able to shut 'em down imagine if that had happened in a proper server room and the AC failed and well no "thermal" protect on the machines - smoked server anyone?

    I work in a one man operation and I'm leaving for vacation. I've still got one air conditioner running and I've reducrd the crunching to just the 5850 big guns and a couple of rigs here at the house. Luckily I have someone to stop by the shop a couple times a week to make sure the remaining AC is still working. Oh well, I got about three years out of that one. I'll order a new one tomorrow and it should be waiting when I get back.

    We try to take the boys someplace different every summer. This year we've rented a vacation house at the Bodensee. This is where Germany, Austria and Switzerland all meet. This is one of the places we want to visit.

    So far we've taken them to Denmark, Netherlands, Crete(Greece), Canary Islands(Spain), France, Belgium, The north sea here in Germany and 2 trips to Russia.

    Since they are 9 and 12 Saturday I will have to build a wall between them in the car and install the portable DVD players.

    I'm back.

    Looks like Lauren has been holding off on MW to save some heat too. He still hasn't caught me yet.
    Hopefully the new AC is waiting at the shop on Monday so I can crank everything back up.

    I'll bet you can. At 90% of capacity. I'll see what the temps are on Thursday and may start the rest.


    OK Lauren, it's time to get it cranked up again. Or can't you take the heat.

    Judging from his stats, his whole farm must have went up in smoke.

    Then again, he doesn't seem to have been around since I got back from vacation which would seem to be unusual. On the other hand, maybe he just decided to take a vacation.

    I hope it's a vacation. As hard as he works on DC, I can just imagine how he runs his business.

    The guy puts in more time around here than is necessarily good for the psyche, ya know? GOT to be due for some time off.

    I was sure those little green guys had caught up with you. Good to have you back. Let me know when you're ready to crank up the MW thing again.

    Ok Lauren, here we go again. It looks like summer is about over here. We've had nothing but cool cloudy days for about a week now. I've cranked up all the GPUs except one and it needs a board to put it in. I'll start the rest of the CPUs in about a month.

    Unless you get started soon, you'll have a lot of catching up to do.

    I just hope MW holds up under the stress.

    I know what you mean. When I lived in the Mohave desert, summer seemed to last forever.

    No rush. MW is having a lot of problems right now and is not able to keep the boxes fed. Make sure you set up a backup project.

    Lauren, we see you trying to sneak back in without saying anything. You need to work on your stealth mode before you start dropping bombs.

    Talking MW & Pgrid

    It's REALLY sad when my C2D (without usable GPU) can give Lauren a run in Pgrid.....

    How DOES one get an ATI 5470 GPU to be recognized by Pgrid in a laptop running win 7 with a N850 Phenom II Tri-core? (no linux load yet).

    It seems to see it, but won't give it GPU apps. Did SOMEONE suck them out of the queue????


    Guess this means it's my turn to get and be ????? LOL


    FYI: I have the good GPUs in the car (ready to head out for a new project).... just finished putting a full vision robot (fully automated w/ neat stuff) in Detroit. Going back to my previous career.... this 'commercial' stuff is insane.

    PS: I turned off MW for now.... too many WUs erroring in the last 3-4 seconds of processing. The new SSE2 apps seem unstable for some reason both in Win and Linux.

    PMs and direct email welcomed.


    Tnx,
    C

    PPS: Happy Turkey Day vacation to all!!!

    Primegrid does not have an ATI application, only CUDA right now. Put the ATI on Collatz perhaps or DNETC?

    OK Lauren. Milkyway is all yours. All my Nvidia cards are going elsewhere leaving you as king of the hill here until I find something else. But the question is, can you beat me to 200,000,000?

    No Sorry I don't have the power enough to try that
    nor the time to build it to that point
