Higher credit. If not higher maybe some sort of bonus for crunchers with high turnover.

Thanks, Eric.

BTW did you hear back from SystemViper about badges?


No, not yet.

I'd like to wait to see what he comes up with. If that doesn't pan out, I could use your daughter's version. The only problem I see there, is we need a badge for each level and the "font" is hand drawn. I wouldn't want to ask her to draw a bunch more, and I'm not good enough at photoshoping to change the hand drawn text.

Here are the proposed credit levels: 10k, 100k, 500k, 1M, 10M, 25M, 50M, 100M, 250M, 500M.

Give me some time, Eric. We will try to create something over the weekend.


To keep it short: project of new badges proposed by me is dead.
I hope that somebody else will come up with other ideas.

My very quick attempt to create badges
https://1drv.ms/u/s!AvS39foVfvPOaR5Fv2k1u3Y41cQ?e=WSlaM4

I had in mind different colors for different credits. And either one or two rectangular.
Same would go for decic and septic count.

PS
I added crayon version of projects logo created by my daughter.


Your daughter is a better artist than me.


Thanks, Eric.

6) Message boards : Number crunching : Nvidia card present but no tasks available (Message 2619)

So this project requires Nvidia compute capability 3.5 or higher. This was determined early on by which cards were failing and which ones were working.

This page has a table which maps compute capability to card:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CUDA#Version_features_and_specifications
You will notice that GTX660 is only compute capability 3.0


Thanks, Eric. I swapped that card for something less power-hungry and compatible with this project.

Hello,

I was going to test GTX 660 with Numberfields but I don't get any tasks'

30/12/2019 12:31:31 | NumberFields@home | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks


Nvidia card is enabled in account settings. No other GPU tasks in progress on the host.
OpenCL in version 1.2 and the latest drivers are installed.

The project needs time to get tasks?

Hi Eric,

Yes, GPU is on Windows host.
Good luck with the development of the app.

Hello,

I can't get any tasks for Radeon R7 250X 2GB despite project settings being configured correctly.
BOINC manager log shows this only

Thank you reasurring reply, Eric. I'm happy to hear that CPU crunchers are important to this project.

Hassle wasn't the right word to use. What I had on mind was that some users claim that crunching on CPU might become obsolete considering time needed to complete WU and credit given for valid task. So if I was going to process less tasks on CPU it would make me feel I'm not making any real contribution to the project.

What about those who can crunch only on CPU? Can app be optimised further to decrease calculation time?
If not will it still be worth the hassle?

Strange. I checked my account and started seeing WUs with 8000 points.
And still over 20 WUs pending.

But no new badge for scoring paver 200k points in total.

Seems to be a serious bug.
