Other news
Seti is on 59,418,000 credits so I have the farm concentrating on it so I can reach 60 million.

Seti have 20th anniversary T shirts being organised so I have ordered one.

GPU ordering
The EVGA GTX 1660 Ti that I wanted (the XC Ultra) still aren't available in Australia so I might have to buy another brand. ASUS have a dual-slot card or maybe I will just get the EVGA 2.75 slot one. I will check what is available tomorrow and put an order in this week.

The bad news is the Turing based cards don't work with GPUgrid or Asteroids@home which will restrict which projects I can use them on.

I am thinking I will go back to my original idea of have a dedicated GPU machine, possibly with two graphics cards. Probably an i5-8500T (6 cores/6 threads) with a TDP of 35 watts and two GTX 1660 Ti. For the moment I will just get a pair of 1660 Ti's and swap out two of my GTX 1060's. The dedicated machine can come later.
