  1. I had my FAH running for a couple days and had 12 WU sitting in Send state constantly failing. I tried allowing firewall rules to no avail and ended up playing with the FAH folders/ reinstalling. I think I lost 2 days worth of work as a result. I did backup my Appdata folder prior to messing with it so if anyone knows how I can restore 12 WU from that, that would be amazing. But, as you can see below even after a re-install my jobs still sit in 'Send' status and fail to connect to servers. For example, I can browse to the that seems to show the server responding even though FAH can't get to it. Is this normal, taking days to send and fail after fail? UPDATE: I somehow managed to recover my saved AppData folder and get them sending. I gave Admin to FAHClient.exe Force closed FAH Replaced FAH AppDate folder Reinstalled Opened Advanced control - watched "connecting" for 10 min then it came up I may have just fluked something but those steps may help someone.
  2. Does anywhere have statistics of how much compute power there is at any one time? How does FAH compare to other supercomputers? It would be awesome if we go down in the history books for breaking most powerful distributed computing records for this. (Excluding crypto)
  3. Mine is sitting idle at the moment too as I'm not getting any CPU work right. GPU get's some but I have no info. I think Stanford servers just getting smashed by all the new interest. I noticed some issues just trying to look at stats URL before and was getting "bad gatway" errors as it appeared to load from the databse.
  4. All I did was enter my name, team and the key. It will send you CV19 Projects as they come in, it does other work too.
  5. Just another reason to justify my recent upgrade to Ryzen 7 3800x recently 100% CPU going strong
  6. Nvidia launched the card last night at an event they threw in Melbourne. AUD $429 hitting the shelves July 19th. I got some photos of it first hand.
  7. Nvida just launched the Nvidia GTX 1060 for AUD $429 at an event in Melbourne. Was one of the few lucky enough to get up and close.
  8. Rig name: monster Cpu: i7 4790K @ 4.7Ghz Gpu: R9 290 x2 RAM: 16GB DDR3 Score: 9.1
  9. FYI, if you don't plan to extend it you can cancel it now and it will still work till your expiry date. Mine is the 24th March. I can't remember if I gave payment info or not and don't want to be charged just in case. Click Account > Cancel Subscription > Choose your reason why > Here it will tell you your expiry date > Select cancel to not renew subscription after expiry. For me, the subscription just isn't worth getting the videos a week early.
  10. Thanks Kirky2k15, This may help in the interim, I'll look into it a bit more. But we were hoping for something that was a little more attachment specific.
  11. I remember when Linus/Luke spoke about their sponsor quickbooks and how you were able to tell once a client had seen the invoice that had been sent. This idea prompted me to find a similar solution for my workplace. We have occupational health and safety bulletins/info/attachments which needs to be sent out periodically to staff. It's no point sending it to staff if they don't read it. My question to you; has anyone come across something or know of a solution to get some kind of verification that they at least had a look at it? We use gmail for our work emails. Is there an email based solution for this? Is there an app? Most of us have access to android tablets/phones. But Ideally an app that has cross platform support to cover all basis. Is there a web based service? Free or paid. Appreciate your input! Regards, monster.
  12. Use Google's dns servers. Or Could also do a tracert in cmd to youtube and see how many hops it's taking.
  13. There is zero chance the TV is causing congestion. The way TV works over fibre is that it's injected into the fibre on a different light frequency than what's used for the internet. Your ONT converts that separate frequency into RF then out through coax. Even if they did push it down the same light frequency, it's a broadcast. Every FTA channel including the Pay TV if that comes through, is being broadcast constantly and simultaneously 24 hours a day. The best thing to do is log the fault with your retail service provider, and they will escalate it with their wholesaler if they find the issues to be before it hits their network.
  14. Hey, Calling on my Canadian LTT friends for some advice. My girlfriend is heading to Ontario to do an internship for 2 months so she will need a pre-paid sim to get her by. She has an unlocked iPhone 4s. So LTE/4g is not necessary. She will tether her phone to her laptop though. Her usage here in Australia is as follows: Data: 3.5GB per month (would probably budget for slightly more while OS) Text: ~400 / month (most of it goes through imessage/fb now though) Calls: Probably somewhere around 100 mins should be good for work purposes. Budget: Doesn't need to be the bottom dollar deal, as it's only over 2 months. Just something with the best overall value really. She's not the most tech savy girl, as I'm the one who usually manages her data recharges etc here. She'd certainly appreciate something simple like going into a store and just paying the one monthly fee for the deal and not have to worry any more about it. Thanks in advance for your advice. And I'll be sure to tell her where the advice came from too [emoji3] as she's always stirring me up calling me a nerd while I'm sitting there watching the 'WLAN' show on Saturday mornings [emoji6] Monster.
  15. I used the guide over at Anandtech for mine. I have 4.7Ghz @ 1.23v Cooled by h100i Ambient temp of ~20°c Idle temp of ~29°c OCCT load temp of ~70°c 4.7Ghz seemed to be my safe limit. After that I needed a huge jump in core voltage to get it stable at 4.8Ghz. I use OCCT on a 5 min run to test them. Then move up. http://www.anandtech.com/show/8227/devils-canyon-review-intel-core-i7-4790k-and-i5-4690k/2 1. In the BIOS, set the DRAM to XMP.2. Set the CPU to 4.0 GHz (40x multiplier) with CPU Core Voltage to Manual and 1.000 volts.3. Save and Exit, see if system boots to OS.4. If entering OS fails, go back to BIOS and adjust voltage by +0.025 volts and return to step 3.5. When in the OS, run the POV-Ray multithreaded benchmark and OCCT test for five minutes. If either tests fail, go back to BIOS and adjust voltage by +0.025 volts and return to step 3.6. Monitor temperatures during OCCT test. If the temperature is at the top of the users limit, stop overclocking.7. If temperatures are low, and both tests complete, then this CPU frequency/Core Voltage combination is stable and noted. To continue overclocking, go back to BIOS and adjust CPU multiplier by +1. Return to Step 3.
  16. I learnt not to feed the zombies. But I'm assuming that rule does not apply to feeding them turnips.
  17. There will be no issues running a different brand or resolution, and (as far as I'm aware) refresh rate. Has anyone else had issues running a 144 next to a 60? But yea I would just jump on your local Craigslist / gumtree / eBay equivalent and pick up a cheap second hand 1080p. I picked up my second and third monitors for $30 and $40 and even managed to match the model exactly.
  18. Okay, I think some people think about power backwards. Which may give the OP the wrong impression regarding their question. "Is it okay to use?" The answer is yes. Power isn't pushed. If you have a 1000watt power supply it's not pushing 1000watts of constant power to your components. A 1000watt power supply means that it can safely supply 1000watts if it's asked to. The way electricity works is that it's pulled or drawn by the component(s) that require it. This goes the same for all electrical devices. This is why your 100watt light bulb doesn't explode when it's connected to a nuclear power plant that is supplying 4,000 megawatts. In fact it will do damage when there is under supply of power. In short, as long as all your components add up to use less watts than your power supply, it's 'okay' to use. Using this calculator below will give you a good indication of your power draw. http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp However, there is a few things to consider when buying a PSU. - Running a PSU at 100% of its rating will be like running as fast as you can on a treadmill. You can do it for a while, but eventually you will fail from fatigue. - A power supply will vary in energy efficiency at different wattages. In your specific case, it looks like your PSU is most efficient at 400-500w I say it would be a great purchase. And future proofs you. A good PSU will last 10 years.

  19. Got my red version today, live in Australia so I'm pretty impressed with quick shipping.
  20. I don't judge a company or person by the mistakes they make. Everyone makes mistakes. I do judge them by their ability to take ownership of when they stuffed up, their willingness to rectify any issues, and their overall customer service. I received my email before my hoodie as I'm in Australia. I think it was due around the 10th? But good on teespring! My impressions of your company are even higher now I see the way you handle yourself.
