Everyone has. See Richard's post earlier in this thread, and mine for our local copies of 7.0.28.

More information has become available through Berkeley news centre and IST service status

At the time of writing, it doesn't look as if they will even begin to get things back up and running until around midnight UTC tonight, and I doubt full service will be available for many hours after that.

and you want to run 2 WU's concurrently to increase your GPU utilization, right? that was the only reason we used to use app_info.xml files for Einstein@Home. nowadays we no longer have to do that b/c the GPU utilization factor for BRP apps can be manipulated from the Einstein@Home preferences section of your web account. it works in the same way it did w/ the app_info.xml file - a factor of 1 runs 1 task, a factor of 0.5 runs 2 simultaneous tasks, a factor of 0.33 runs 3 simultaneous tasks, and so on and so forth...

About OpenCL :) All was very

About OpenCL :)
All was very easy.
So i use WinXP and openCL driver fron Catalyst XP.
And OpenCL included only in 12.1
In 12.2-12.4 there is no Opencl drivers.
In Catalyst for Vista/7 opencl included in Catalyst 12.4.
Why so? I dont know.

Hello all, first: great

Hello all,

first: great work done, just installed the new boinc client version, and my gpu does its jobs. But one question remains:

Is there an option to stop only BOINC's GPU utilization during exclusive application execution? I don't want to stop the calculations on the CPUs, but GPU-apps should stop if a game or something like that is started.

Thx, mahdia

Sure, BOINC's activity menu let's you suspend it completely, or just the GPU tasks. You may have to switch to Advanced View. If you're on Windows, you can also use the BOINC icon in the system tray (right click on it)...

Hope this helps,

Oliver

Yes, instead of using use instead, see the following for details:

Suspending by right-click on the system tray icon suspends for 1 hour.
Suspending using the activity menu suspends until one changes it back.
