I was just about to say, now all depends on pschoefer announing Sprint or Cross Country at TN-Grid... But then I remembered that TN-Grid can't generate workunits fast enough to be candidate for Pentathlon.

Actually, if this FB sprint wasn't overlapping with Pentathlon, TN-Grid would make for a very poor FB sprint for this same reason.

I recycled all my old parts last summer, so I can't even cobble together something.
Oh well.

TN-Grid rarely has periods without work. But the rate of work requested/completed by users can easily outpace the low rate of work generation on the server. And this is what is happening currently. AFAIU their work generator is computationally expensive.

TN-Grid day one.
Though not much effort is being put into it we have captured 2 points anyway.

Yes, I am doing some as Rosetta does not play nice on my Linux boxes and I don't get any Universe to download and what I have completed is uploading at the rate of about 10 a day. Should be done by the time a vaccine for COVID-19 is found.

Welcome back everyone. This is your one hour notice that the next Sprint is about to be announced. Once the project is announced, it is 24 hours until it actually starts, load up on tasks and hold them for 24 hours.

I seem to hit a limit of 296 tasks per GPU. It is time to spoof my GPU count, for AMD cards this time.
I can only get 40 on my machine, so I let it run to see if it will pick up more. Now it runs out all the time with a max of 37. SMH
No nividia on this run from me either, just not good for this project.

I got hold of iwajabitw, to see if he could bring his AMD fleet online, but his fleet is currently in storage for some home remodeling. I am starting to look seriously at that Pentium III-733 (750?) sitting in the junk pile.... :D

I’ve got a 2.4 ghz pentium 4 that still works (as far as I know) if you’re that desperate!

Edit, and a 1.4 ghz athlon t-bird In the pile too

I added some nVidia, not all. It's painful to watch them get smoked by my old AMD GPUs
