Here we go again!!

IMO this is getting a bit ridiculous.

Is this an "unfixable " problem??

Apparently it is. I really wish the admins would build a new server from scratch to replace this server.

And yes, I would donate money to the project to facilitate this endeavor.

Hey, I already told them I would build them a new one custom for their needs!
Or give more cash, whatever they need to keep the server running smoothly!
No response to that as of yet.
Feels way better to me than just dumping money into some "fund" and not knowing where it actually goes.

But is this a software or hardware issue??

It is more than likely, a software issue.

Building a new (different) server would ensure that they would be able to test it before replacing the existing one.

Also, a new (different) server would reduce the chance of inheriting an old bug from the old server.

Building a new (different) server would also give the admins a chance to incorporate some of the changes that have been requested by the people who support and crunch for the project. Maybe even increase the cache size or other changes.

All excellent points Mike.
Hopefully the new year will bring some renewed energy to solve these issues.
Having a limited understanding of the real "nuts n bolts" of this kind of programming I am at somewhat of a loss to understand.
However, I do believe in the importance of this project beyond it just generating numbers for people out here to count and compete with each other about!
I remain optimistic and ready to help in any way that I can!

Anyone listening????

If we do this, I suggest we go for 2 servers - its well within reach on the basis of a target suggestion 3cents per day per contributor for 2011 - ie $10 up front. With the number of active users we would easily raise the cash, even allowing for a relatively small proportion of active users contributing.

Not a bad New Years resolution at 3 cents a day ......

Yes, reminds me of the line in the movie "Contact".
Why build only one when you can have two (and keep the second one secret,lol)
Having a backup/baseline machine would be a very good idea.
And yes, even if only a relatively small percentage of us contribute it is still very "do able".
Great idea Zydor.

Oh, and Merry Christmas to everyone out there who celebrates today!

Hi,

I really like the words posted here!
And I'm willing to contribute one extra $ to supply the dev's with newest hardware for app-development.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Bridge_%28microarchitecture%29
This is a link to newest intel CPU-Technology with advanced SSE Instruction-set called AVX which will be distributed from january on.
As we have seen, dev's are able to write excellent apps if they have a hardware to test ( as seen by a generous donation from CNCGURU ).
And they should have at least one HD69xx GPU as OpenCL is said to be much improved compaired to the 'old' HD58xx GPU's.

Regards
Alexander

This validator issue seems to be getting more frequent, the problem is i default back to collatz and it drops me several hours work.
With a single 4770 not such a problrm but with two 5970's the cache in gone in mins even with 8 cores.
