As mentioned in my last post I got an EVGA RTX 3060 Ti. I have managed to pre-order a second card from another supplier today. It doesn't say when they will be in stock, however most shops aren't accepting pre-orders until they know they are getting stock. I still need another two cards.

I was informed the 10GbE switch which I have on back-order is not expected until November now.

I upgraded the remaining Nvidia GPU machines to Debian Bullseye after using the 3060 Ti machine as a guinea pig. Everything worked pretty much the same as before apart from updated software packages. Its not so much as an upgrade but rather a clean install of the latest version.

In project news Rosetta ran out of work again. They had 4 million work units in the queue but it seems a particular variant of the work had a bug and crashes within 60 seconds so they have millions of failed work units.
