According to this link, polio has been eradicated in all continents except Asia. It's still endemic in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Re: Linux: How to disable mitigations for CPU vulnerabilities

I shut down the 2P Ivy beast for now. The PPD is between a 3700X and a 3900X and it draws 310 watts from the wall with turbo boost off. I'll replace it when you can actually buy hardware sometime in the future.

Re: Linux: How to disable mitigations for CPU vulnerabilities

It was a small nuisance to figure out how to set the GRUB config accordingly in Mint. For others using Mint: sudo nano /etc/default/grub Before editing: GRUB_DEFAULT=0 GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAUL...

Re: Linux: How to disable mitigations for CPU vulnerabilities

I ran your llrDIV script on my 2P Ivy with mitigations on and off and although the trend seemed to be a slight improvement, I doubt it's statistically significant.

MLC@Home Cuda app is CPU limited

I've noticed that the MLC cuda app is CPU limited so it may be a good project for some low powered cards. Observations with a 2070S on a 3700X running universe on the CPUs: 1) 1 MLC cuda task per GPU with one free CPU thread (~65% shader utilization) 2) 2 MLC cuda tasks per GPU with 2 free CPU threa...

Re: Help With Asus Z10PC-D8

Is it possible your PSU is the problem? I see you have both 8 pin connectors plugged into the MB so that's good. I see in the manual on p 2-18 that it won't post if there's not enough power. I know this is a stretch but I can't think of anything else to try. E5-2690V4 is 135 W TDP E5-2680V3 is 120 W...

This was the race we had last year on the anniversary of the bigadv EOL. We can do it again if [H] is up for it.
The dates we ran this race last year overlaps with the PG "Tour de Primes" this year. Perhaps we can run it the last week of January.

It looks as though [H] has stepped up production this year. Perhaps the fight against covid-19 was the trigger.

Re: F@H Challenge thread, 2021

Markfw and pokey would definitely like to participate but they each average 42 M PPD on FAH. [H] as a team is averaging 169,115,049 PPD so maybe the same format as last year would work. It depends on how many TAAT members sign up and how many GPUs they toss into the race.

GFN-21 has not been updated because it's still capable of running the FP64 transforms, which are the fastest.
Another app for the Radeon VII. :) Maybe I'll try it out during the PG GPU challenge later this month unless of course, it's need elsewhere. :)

StefanR5R all the points made in the BBC article are valid along with the points you made.

Pfizer/BioNtech covid-19 vaccine looks encouraging

It's early phase 3 efficacy data and safety data will come in a week or so but it looks good so far. Time will tell.

That reminds me of petrusbroder having an issue with one of his computer years back where he had a power cable failure. There was no visible damage so it took him awhile to track the problem down. I guess that's one more item to add to my troubleshooting checklist.
