Thanks for joining Kellen, you're most welcome to the Team.

I hope you have a bit of fun. We're a relaxed enough team and there's never any pressure to get involved in challenges etc.

Your expertise in Boinc settings, App_config.xml etc will no doubt prove a valuable asset. Any tips and tricks/tweaks welcome.

Thanks again

Rob.

Yup a certain pps-mega, dad finder, rob dc. I suppose bound to happen eventually but if you tried to do it purposely, it would be next to impossible ;)

Many thanks all! Glad to be part of the Team!

And I think you might be onto something with your theory END383. Your prime is almost certainly what brought us together ;) Out of curiosity; have you run GFN-15 on that FX-7500? I ran a few (thousand...) of them on my GT710 last year and they were taking about 9 minutes each, however the R7 is almost twice as powerful, so you might be able to get one GFN-15 task done in about 5 minutes, for ~300 tasks per day. At that rate you'd get a GFN-15 prime on average about once per month (either initial finder or double-checker), which is pretty good for the minimal CPU overhead required. If you do end up running any, let me know please; I'd love to see the runtimes!

And thanks for the Ozzie welcome Dad! It has been ages since I've been down that way, but found Australia to be a very welcoming place in general. A little too hot for my Canadian blood though when I got down around Melbourne in February. Up in the mountains was much more my style.

As Rob mentioned earlier; please feel free to poke me with any app_config or cc_config questions you may have. I have messed around with those quite a bit :)

Thank you,
Kellen

You're welcome Kellen.

I'm near Canberra, so in Feb we had 45*C, this week we've had snow and -5*C

Not fun

I'm very familiar with those temperature swings, but mine are a lot colder and never that hot; I also had snow this May, lol. The hottest it ever gets here is 35C, and I live near Lake Ontario, so it doesn't get much colder than -35C at my house. Tolerable compared to where I grew up in the prairies. It has been about 20 years since I was in Canberra, but I certainly enjoyed the surrounding landscape while there.

Hopefully things warm up for you soon!

i do not think doing GFN 15 soon, the prime and the DC are really of robish(he leave his machine with me), for me is really difficult have good times.

Edit: i make a GFN 15 in about 10~9 minutes

Hi END383,

Thanks! I'd say that time is not bad. My GT 710 had almost the same time and I ran it until I got a prime with it then put it away. It took quite some time to get that prime though, so I definitely understand not wanting to run those. :)

Thanks again for the info!

Regards,
Kellen
