5 Billion credits celebration thread - Page 13

post #121 of 132
Glad things went well and you are home again.

I know what it is like to suddenly get full hearing; I suffered from glue ear from a very early age to the extent that I was 80-90% deaf. When I was 7 I had my adenoids (like tonsils for the nose) removed and grommets put in - from 90% deaf to full hearing overnight.

Took some getting used to and it was the silly things that got me, like being worried about the noise of my jeans rubbing together as I walked. I had never heard that before, and I was convinced my legs were going to fall off...

The only downside I can see is that now you will be able to hear your fans during BGBs. thumb.gif

Currently waiting for another FAX3 to drop from gpugrid so I can see what difference I get with 625core vs 800core.
On another note.. I just looked at my tasks tab and I see a wu from gpugrid named NATHAN_FAX4
Could that be even longer?!?! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif Because someone speculated on the gpugrid forums that what they did was just stuck more than one wu together hence the X3
E: Woah woah woah. OI!

Also, a note about tasks beginning with NATHAN_FA... These tasks are unique in that they are quite large simulations, compared to many others we have done in the past which are smaller (bigger biomolecules mean bigger simulations). They not only take longer per step, but require more memory. Cards with lower memory (below 1GB) may suffer additional performance loss. There is nothing we can do about this, unfortunately.
While running the "normal" long runs my card is already being loaded over 900 megabytes and memory controller load is ~37-38%
LL
E2: Oh lol, had a longer read on that link, people already crying about possibly not making the 24 hour bonus. Well boohoo.
E3: And lmao, read further in and the FAX4 apparently is a new revision of the the newer and longer wu
Quote:
Sorry for the delayed response, I have been at a conference for the past two days. Considering the responses and the stats we have gotten, it definitely seems that these are a little too long. There are a lot of people who complete the tasks on time but then have trouble uploading them in time for the bonuses at both the 24 and 48 hr limits (116mb is a large upload size). More importantly, there also seems to be more severe errors than are typical, though it's not clear why that is right now.
Therefore, I am going to modify and rename these tasks. They will be renamed to NATHAN_FAX4 (surprise!), and they will run for ~66% of the time of the FAX3 jobs. My checks here indicate that they will run for 8.3 hours on GTX 580, so remember that they are still not like short tasks. People who are not using the GTX 500 or 400 series cards should consider crunching only on the short queue if you are concerned about runtime, bonuses, failures, overheating, etc. Ultimately, the choice is yours. There is still a 25% bonus for finishing before 48 hours.
Hopefully this hits the sweet spot we and you guys have been looking for. This is a learning moment for us and it has been good to get some data on the behavior of such long tasks.
Nate
dskagcommunity et al.: I should clear up confusion about the different "FAX" named tasks. The first round of tasks, titled "NATHAN_FAX-" (with no number after) were supposed to be long like the FAX3 tasks. However, there was a problem with our test software and it underestimated runtimes (but correctly calculated credit). Those have been replaced by the FAX3 tasks. There were "FAX2" tasks, but they were stopped before anyone recieved them because the credit was incorrect by a huge factor (a human mistake, I failed to edit a line in the submission to the server). As you know the "FAX3" tasks are the very long tasks, which have proven to be a bit too long for everyone's taste, so I will modify them to run for shorter times as I explained above. I will rename them to "FAX4" in order to make the distinction clear. Sorry for all the different task names, but I need to be sure I can keep track of the simulations, and what data comes from where.

Here is shot from my 470 (actually at 465 flashed to 470) Didn't realize these were using some memory. eek.gif

Also, you can see some times from a couple of other wu's.

Thanks for the support Tex. lots of hydrocodone biggrin.gif

Thats Crazy ginger. I didnt realize how well you would be able to relate. I went from like 50-60% hearing to about 90%(hopefully) so I definitely know what you are saying. I can actually tell what song lyrics are saying.

Given the circumstances I will gladly take the noise from my case fans and I think you understand wink.gif

Sorry about that. Right click on the pick and then view image. I don't know why whenever you link to a pic on this forum it does that. There use to be a bar across the top of a pic that was clickable to view the image at full size.

all i heard for many years was a ringing in my right ear growing up. I thought that it had to do with some severe ear infections i got in my right ear when i was a kid, ending in me having my ear drum burst on 3 separate occasions. Finally convinced my parents that I wasn't faking not hearing them from one side when a lady came to my school and did a hearing test. I failed miserably hearing only a miniscule amount the sound spectrum. Many pokes, sticks blood given, and scans performed the found I had a blockage in my sinus's that was affecting my hearing. Had been there for years and no one knew. I had to take some super-duper antibiotics and forcefully pop my hears every few mins for like 3 months. Slowly but surely my hearing came back. Now it seems as I hear better in my right ear than my left now. It still gets tender and when its cold outside sometimes. Guess i'd rather it hurt sometimes than hear that stupid ringing all the time.

Well I can definitely relate to that. Before the ear surgeries I had to have a bunch of sinus polyps removed so my sinuses wouldnt cause pressure on the skin grafts. I guess so the skin grafts wouldn't rupture from internal sinus pressure.

It sure is nice to hear again, isn't it? tongue.gif


On another note: For some reason POEM@home will not download GPU tasks. I was trying to get POEM to be my GPU project and DOcking@home for my CPU, but POEM will only download CPU tasks. I have played with the Computing preferences extensively and I really cannot figure it out. Maybe it's the hydrocodone, who knows.... rolleyes.gif
