Other news
I managed to pickup some GPU work from GPUgrid. They’ve been concentrating on their multi-core CPU app and GPU work has been in short supply. This time I got some short and long work units which have been running fine. This exposed a problem with my app_config file that wasn’t working for the short work units. I use an app_config file to allocate a whole CPU thread to their GPU work units which makes then run quicker. I resolved the issue with it.

Asteroids and Einstein both passed 50 million credits. Asteroids gave another badge as a result. I have been running Einstein overnight on the i7-6700’s. It sometimes takes a few goes to get the gravity wave work and I have to manually intervene until they’ve got tasks.

I was concentrating on Seti work to keep it ahead of Asteroids and Einstein however they ran out of work units this weekend so its back to Asteroids for a bit. Seti gives less credit than the other two therefore it takes more processing to keep the credit scores aligned.

The Bramble increased to 12 crunchers and I used all 3 of the Mk II Pi^4 cases I had printed off. See MarksRpiCluster for details.
