I've been exclusively POGS for CPU projects for a while now. WCG HCC GPU sucks 3 CPU cores during the day, but it's full speed ahead on POGS on those CPU cores at night. Much quieter for sleeping without GPU fan whine and GPU only uses power during the day.

The drop in hourly POGS credit when HCC GPU is running isn't as much as I thought as the POGS tasks speed up considerably when run on fewer CPU cores due to less contention. Although they reserve the 3 CPU cores exclusively, the HCC GPU tasks only actually use a full CPU core for 20 seconds at the start and about 45 seconds at the end of each task. The 3 concurrent tasks usually are not synchronised, so often only 1 CPU core is being fully used by HCC at a time. Hence speedy, low contention POGS processing.:thumbsup:

Maximum HCC credit on my setup with HT off and no CPU tasks running, maximum POGS credit with HT on and no HCC. Day/night compromise with HT on lets me contribute to both my current 2 favoured BOINC projects.v:

Well done to all supporting the team on theSkyNet POGS.    :congrats     :congrats

So good to finally have an Aussie BOINC project after so long. :AUS:

Go, go theSkyNet POGS and remember  :rocks

Looks like we are gaining very slowly on the #1 team since Dataman started crunching again in earnest.  With Cruncher Pete leading the Team in recent credit we have a chance at least to get to # 1 in the future.  We are holding our own and pulling away from number 3 Team n the world.

  World Rankings from Pogs  http://ec2-23-23-126-96.compute-1.amazonaws.com/pogs/top_teams.php


After the Radioactive sensor competition finishes I am hoping those resources will go back to this project ???

Thanks Dingo. I have 40 of 80 running. I have some big medical expenses coming so will be a bit before I can get the other 40 going.

medical expenses

We don't have those in Aus, but we do have really, really expensive electricity.  :faint:  Maybe it's a case of "swings and roundabouts"?  ???

@Dataman.   Hope that which is causing the medical expense  passes without any problems.  I guess I don't really appreciate my free medical and dental uintil I see how much others have to pay.
Only another 40 cores to go, wow!!!
Oh yeah, add another couple of really(s) to Mike's comment about electricity.

All contributions to any of the projects is greatly appreciated.    If you have one to 80 PC's it is the contribution to science that is appreciated and if I sometimes give credit to those that have a lot I also know that having one PC is also a great contribution.

 :AUS: :USA1:uk  and other countries,  So I say to all Team members large and small farms, lets  :dance2: up a storm and  :cheer1: for  :rocks and a big  :thanks1: from me.

Now that I need not worry about the outcome of the sensor challenge and the sun has lost its effectiveness, I am putting all cores back on POGS.  Having said that, I am sorry to say that I will have a short period of absence (I hope) as I am being admitted to hospital on Friday for a heart Angiogram as two of my arteries in the heart are 75 and 50 % blocked.  Depending on the outcome of that they will carry out whatever is necessary to fix it in the short term like placing a stem in those arteries or schedule me for a bypass surgery.  So the bottom line is that if you do not see me around for awhile and my stats are 0 it is because I am in Hospital or in another world but I have not left the team

Thanks much mates. It appears my eyes are not going to outlast me without an eye cutter. I'll be having double inter-occular implants over the next 4-5 weeks. They will be puting a new one in one and replacing an existing one that is starting to detach in the other. It is a routine procedure. What me worry? It is only ~$9,000 USD. Our health care system sucks. :thumbdown:
 :panic:

@ dataman: Routine maybe, but scary as heck too i'm betting.   
Good luck anyway mate, even though i'm sure you won't need it.  Some of that medicine you prescibed for Pete's "clogged pipes" may help you as well :-)

@ Pete : Good luck as well mate.  You can tell us all about it when you get back home next week all safe & sound.   
And in case you hadn't read it... http://forum.boinc-australia.net/index.php?topic=1337.msg29555#msg29555  (err after your last post)

My thoughts & best wishes will be with you both.  ..JN..

It is only ~$9,000 USD. Our health care system sucks.

You could always migrate to Australia, you'd only have to wait two years for your residency, then five years for elective surgery. A torn knee ligament is still considered elective. Idiots!!  :hbang:

Our health system still has a way to go yet, but the emergency care is great and freeeee. Hell, when my gut gave out I was in theatre 35 minutes after arriving at hospital, 30 days later (DON'T SPEND 30 DAYS IN A PUBLIC HOSPITAL!!!) they sent me home with a cleaner, free food and a nurse every second day. However, six months latter when I was "fixed/healthy" enough for the follow up surgery, my new wound started leaking in the hospital "departure lounge". I ended up in another public hospital as an emergency and it was fixed. No free home help though. I was pissed off about that.

Anyway, I hope both you and Cruncher Pete do really well and recover quickly. It all brings back memories that suck bricks and to be avoided if possible.

Good luck with the work, Pete and Dataman.  Fingers crossed it is all smooth and good news at the end.

To both Pete and Dataman, best of luck guys, but luck plays less and less a role nowadays, as you said Data, almost "routine" procedures nowadays for both problems...

my Dad recently had a stent inserted Pete - no problems whatsoever...just wish he would get rid of the bloody cigarettes !!! coughs like... like a... like a man who has smoked way too many ciggies for way too many years.. but his brain tricks him into saying "Oh, Im 80, doesnt matter now..." Pffft - DOES matter to us kids and his Grandkids !


I think its almost time for a new build or an ugrade for me (a new build would be better.. and keep the then "spare i7" for AA's). More core power ! YAY !
