Hi,

My computer has been asking for work for 2 days now. I see under server status that CPDN is out of work. Bummer, resuming other projects. Will check back later this week.

Note that the work request was for GPU work - that\'s for a NVidia or ATI graphics card.


Are there projects that support ATI cards now??

Thanks,

It's pretty amazing (and sad) that searching the term "pending" doesn't bring that thread up. There was only one match when I searched this morning, and it was this thread:

Just opened this for the first time ever:

http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/pending.php

It lists my Pending Credit at over 200K - that's gotta be wrong, right? :)

That computer really has been turning in a lot of completed models and doing an impressive amount of work.


Thanks for noticing! :)

Unless you plan to run work from a CUDA project on that graphics card, stick with BOINC 6.2.19 for the time being. You\'ll see from the project News thread (top of the Number Crunching section) that this is what the CPDN moderators are advising for the time being.


I do use the GTX 260 to crunch on GPU Grid, so unfortunately I need to stick with 6.5.0 for the time being. The good news is that I downloaded another CPDN model today on that host. I\'m sure as I clear out some of the other work units it will grab more eventually and be running CPDN and GPU Grid 24/7.

Thanks for the advice mo.v.

This host was formerly attached using 5.x BOINC, but I recently upgraded to 6.4.5 after putting a GTX 260 into it. In the process, I also moved my BOINC data folder to another drive since I was running low on space. Unfortunately, when I copied my projects over, 6.4.5 did not recognize the old work so I lost the 4 CPDN models it was working on.

Since doing this, it (CPDN) has only allowed me to download 1 work unit. Am I correct in assuming this is due to the other 4 models being left in limbo? How can I get it to download 3 more?

Thanks for any advice.

So far as I can tell there is no way to contact anyone, anywhere,via email if I have a problem. ( wotht he experitment and model) but I am forced to post and hope a person with authority notices it. The contact support is a webring. impossoble to contact and impossible to leave.
If i wanted to mention my experiment wanted to stop workign, for example/ or if i kept getting a main servers are down call again later message for the first time in 5 years. ubless of course it\'s some sort of club that i wandered into and should never have been let into?


New to the internet? Tons of websites do this and it works fine. When I post a question, people here reply very quickly - not only mods, but also other people crunching the experiment.
