By the way, what do you mean by "...a proper reason???"

Like being a modem (or other with dial up and minute fee line) user.

I'm sorry if someone took the tone of my message too serious. It was ment to wake some guys up... ;)

As MB_Atlanos said there have been a couple of times when too much of server load has gotten the servers upside down.

Thanks to your clear explanation, I raised my cach for .01 to 10 days.
And yup,
As soon as there was work to do, I was able to get a bunch of it to work on.

Please, don't do that.

Engouraging people to keep that kind of a cache without a proper reason on fast computers will bring only a problems. As we have seen servers at Cern (or where ever they are) won't stand the excessive amount of downloads what around 80 computers downloading WUs for ten days cause.

So don't come here whining when server is down and you wan't download work. You know the reason exactly.

I can't see your point in here, but...

But overclocking is very dangerous ( i know what i say ) because you overclock everything CPU, Chipset,
Memory, temperature increase and performance decrease

Overclocking is safe when you know what you are doing. If you overclock your CPU by changing FSB you may or may not (depends on your hardware) overclock your memory and chipset. You are right that temperature increases. If you do it right performance won't decrease instead it will increase.

you also have constant false result in memory
so wu result will be automaticly false.
Lhc@home describe it in site.

If you point a thing you could also link to it. I think sensible overclocking won't return false results.

Internet prevent from overclocking RAM

I would like to know how Internet prevents from overclocking.

but it is a PC3200 400Mhz memory.
when i reboot my bios say overclocking failed.

Usually this is from processor and it may appear rarely also with standard CPU clock. You may also have bought bad memory if problem came after installing the new RAM.

Can't you do it by yourself? Just choose another of your computers you want to merge and on the bottom of that page click link named merge this computer and choose the another.

Posted 5 Apr 2006 by Osku87
Post:
We do *not* know the size of this user's cache. We know the number of WU issued and not yet returned, and that is not the same thing.

In that you are right, but work cache can be estimated by counting the downloaded WUs and looking the average run time from previous ones (as this user has returned those).

I won't be counting all but I presume that he has downloaded about 250 WUs at once. His average run time is about 2 and a half hours. So he would crunch those workunits 26 days. Still the deadline comes after 9 days.

The wu size is something like a couple of megabytes.

I think scientist are working whole time, but doing perhaps some studies that won't need the crunching capacity of LHC. So there won't be so much work. How to continue the current LHC study depends on what the results will be. So only a bunch of new work units will be released from time to time.

btw. We ran out of work again and pretty fast.

I would ask you for second time to look at the Number crunching forum but I won't because some won't still understand. There has been quite much debate about this phenomen.

The idea of hole BOINC is that you can take several projects and crunch them simultaneusly. When one project is out of work computers keep crunching others and return to the one when work is available in there. Many of cruchers have lost this idea when all the other projects have work 24/7. LHC:s nature isn't just that anymore.

It's up to you whether to stay or vanish but hope you understood.

I suggest that you glance the number crunching forum. There is a quite good explanation about this situation. The work will be quite irregular from now on and so it has been already a while.

And still I'm pointing that the previous study is not completed yet (workunits still in progress) and scientist need also time to analyse the results of previous studies to make a new bunch of work.

Posted 19 Mar 2006 by Osku87
Post:
As MikeW said this projects nature is to be without work for sometime and then there comes a new bunch of work. That's why BOINC makes possible to keep several projects. So I would suggest that you keep LHC in your projects with 99% work share. Then take for example Rosetta or Einstein (or which is your second favourite project) with 1% share and last take Predictor or another of those above (or which is your third favourite project) as third with 0% of work share. So your machines have always work. Even when a couple of projects are without work or under maintenance.

You must also notice that all of the work units haven't been returned yet. This may be the one reason for delay.

Mushkin is a very famous of its overcolockers memory. One of the best memory manufacturers in the world. I don't know anything about that Green series, but if it's as good as Mushkins more expensive memory I would buy it straight away.

Memory markets have changed since christmas I see. Here in Finland Kingston Value Ram PC2700 costs 45,90e and PC3200 49,90e. On christmas it was reverse.

I would buy those Mushkins, but lets see what others think about this.
