Sorry guys, my processing time is going have to be put on hold for a while. A power surge here in my home town has completely ruined most of the electronics in my house! Until I can get everything safe and working again, my computers will not be processing any tasks!

This will hopefully be only temporary, however, it may take the electicity people a while to fix everything!

Currently list of broken things:
Laptop
Desktop2 - could be the multiblock it is plugged into, but there is no life at all, possible psu replacement needed! (Desktop 1 survived thankfully)
All lights, kitchen appliances and the tv =(
Central heating
Network router (amazingly the gigabit switch that feeds the computers is still active)
Most of the damage is probably just melted fuses etc but still a pain!

Main desktop is back up and running again.
Will make sure it is working correctly before I fill its BOINC cache for the week.

Everything else has been repaired apart from desktop 2 which is completely dead!

Good news.....
All of the tasks are being validated so I'm hoping the system is functional again. Temperatures are looking good too =)

I just can't seem to keep my systems stable for long.
Now that I am away at uni and I left my dad in charge of my STEM desktop (desktop1) at home. Noticed that my daily credit took a tumble yesterday, connecting to my computer remotely showed a really buggy and distorted screen. GPU temps peaked at 105 degrees C according to SIW which means from my experience they went much beyond, maybe by 10 degrees or so. This of course caused the card to disable itself and stop BOINC processing tasks.
It looks to me like this is yet the same problem that I had before with stupid OEM only graphics cards. The fan broke, it went back to HP, the fan broke, it went back to HP and now thats it is out of warranty, maybe I will look at upgrading the card or a new build all together! Fingers crossed that nothing else was damaged, last time this happened the fan blades managed to break free from the card and got jammed in the CPU fan.
Even with no tasks running the card was idling at 94 degrees so something is wrong with it, I've shut it down for now so I won't be processing any tasks for a while, probably a month or two before I can get new parts etc.

Would someone from the lovely PrimeSearchTeam like to pick up where I left off. I seemed to be the only person running Factorial Prime Search on PRPNet these days!
