Re: Feed Bot Issues

Counter to intuition, it should be possible to disable a feed via its "feed forum" menu, top entry. The "Feed processing has started but not completed and therefore cannot start again. If this persists you can release the process by clicking this button: Submit" condition still happens. I'll go ahea...

Re: Feed Bot Issues

I thought, the "timeout" column for each URL addresses that, but apparently not. I had been wondering about that too. Though if a simple timeout causes the bot to quit entirely, then we should apparently increase the timeout threshold in order to decrease the likelihood of timeouts. It is currently...

Re: My new (to me) Plex Media Server build

Does "sudo ipmitool sensor" work on this board?
If it does, perhaps there are VRM temperature sensors in it too. (Asus's support material for this board looks like only CPU temperatures are monitored though, not any other board temperatures.)

Re: Nasty Linux systemd root level security bug revealed and patched

Debian 10 hosts should have polkit 0.105-25 installed. Debian introduced the upstream bug via a backport into 0.105-26. That's why only unstable and testing were affected. (They are now fixed with polkit 0.105-31. Which you don't need if you have 0.105-25 or older.)

Re: Rosetta python project 1.02 (vbox64) application

Did you have "Disk: Leave at least […] GB free" defined in the computing preferences?

If so, then the client must have had too little information, or/and too late, about the actual disk space requirements.

Re: Does Ram Latency make any Difference for any projects?

Short answer: Maybe…? Long answer: PrimeGrid LLR based subprojects depend somewhat on RAM performance if they are configured to fit into the processors' last level caches, and highly depend on it if not. What matters more – latency or bandwidth – is not known to me. Perhaps bandwidth, as the task is...

Re: 3-2021 Big Core Options under $2,000.

The Threadripper platform –so far– is not the best choice in terms of power efficiency AFAICT.

Re: Weird issue with hard drive

Did you ever take the time to run a full scan for bad sectors on this drive?
Another idea to test would be to downgrade the port to SATA-2 (3 Gb/s, 300 MB/s), *if* this is possible in the driver or in the BIOS.

Re: 4 x Raspberry Pi Cluster on Hardforum

If you consider Raspberry Pi 4 for experiments in power efficiency, keep in mind that its processor is on a 28 nm node. Its efficiency is saved by the slow clock (1.5 GHz) and by the SBC's minimalism. Regarding a stack of these, wouldn't a DIY power supply be not only much cheaper than a PoE solutio...
