So modest! Congratulations Dr Weiss, I know what a milestone submitting your dissertation and successfully defending it can feel like, and well done continuing into a postdoc! For my part it's gratifying to see what my computations are helping produce, and I'm now grinding my way through the parts that don't elude my mathematical/statisical abilities.

Thanks for the update Jake. Ask me sometime about when I ruined a university license server with a bit of misjudged scripting.

Just to be clear: how can we help you get things up and running smooth again--Should we clear out all currently-downloaded tasks and start fresh, keep crunching what we've got at the moment even if they're not validating, or some other option I've not considered yet?

Hear hear.
I'm still crunching in the hopes that invalidating WUs helps clear the queue and gets us back to normal operation faster. I could delete the WUs but I fear that won't help clear them (they appear to be aborting once about 7 comp attempts fail to validate). If someone tells me to start aborting, I'll do that, until then, ragequitting doesn't get anyone nearer a solution.

..or maybe they won't?

No, as the upgrade was (for me at least) several days+ earlier than the bad runs. Thanks Jake for sorting it and the community for confirming it before that. Yay! Back to crunching and trying to get that 7950 up to max RAC.

Same here, thought it was the GPU going south, now not so sure.

On my machine, the errors are coming on WU titled

Note: 18 OR 20

'de_modfit_fast_Sim19...ModfitConstraintsWithFixedDisk...' appears to be running ok.
