Re: Cheap EPYC Rome 7742 and 7402 for sale.

I'm always thinking about density, but it's certainly true that 2 systems would allow more GPUs.

Re: Alpha Testing Ready

I changed my name to the generated one in Primegrid days ago, but b-games did not validate me. So now I have changed it in Collatz. PrimeGrid hasn't been added to boincgames yet. They have their stats files behind a passworded directory. Waiting on them to give me access as they said it will take a...

Huh, still have to do that weird thing where you change your username in a BOINC project to their random string for ~24 hours or so? That's so weird and annoying.

Re: Cost of building the site.

Part of the reason I would do a recurring donation would not just be to help with the ongoing cost, but to pay you back over time for what you have put out. It may look like I make a lot of money by my output, but actually I am just crazy and spend waaaaay more than I should on DC.

I can cough up something in September. Also I'm willing to set up a recurring donation. Seems like all this might be tough if it's just you plus the three of us, though.

Re: Volunteers to help run and maintain the site

Make sure you edit the start and stop time. The Sprint is scheduled to start at 25 minutes after the hour. I think they'll be better to start on the hour, since the stats will update on the hour. Also, do not select the Sprint project. Make sure it's set so a random sprint will be selected. I know ...

Re: Volunteers to help run and maintain the site

I have no qualifications for such work, but I am willing to help/learn as long as the damage I'm able to inflict during inevitable mistakes can be easily fixed (having current backups, limiting the scope of my power, etc.). That said, you'd be better off with someone a little closer to the IT biz th...

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

I just thought I would mention it. That board is actually designed to go in a server chassis with lots of air blowing past everything, so the heatsinks are sized accordingly. As long as they aren't getting too hot to touch comfortably, you are probably fine. Possibly on a case like that, you could p...

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

Thanks, biodoc! I went ahead and updated all my rigs after the PrimeGrid challenge ended, and it looks to me like the patch was included in those updates. Seems there should be a quick and easy way to get the pertinent info from a command prompt, though.

I can't figure out how to implement the fix, nor even how to get meaningful version info out of my hosts. pkcheck --version returns only "0.105".

Anyone heard about this? I would guess that DC hosts aren't likely to be vulnerable.
