Running any project embraces its own level of stress.

I'm certain everyone who participates in this project thanks you for what you've created and supported and empathetically cheers you on as you deal with the issues related to this endeavor.

Cheers Tom!

Appreciate the update. This is the first time I personally have experienced an outage from MW@H.

I was noticing something glitchy as some units were crunching for 4-12 hours and stuck at around 40-70% complete so I realize there was a driver issue and came here to the forums for a solution.

As in typical RTFM fashion, I uninstalled the nVidia drivers and reinstalled them allowing Boinc to continue happily crunching once again.

2021/01/26 update to version 461.40 driver fixed the same issue for me.

But tonight I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro from Home and all work units now Compute error.
Detaching and reattaching still error out every work unit so I've stopped the project until I find the solution.

May the friendships you make, be those which endure;
and all of your grey clouds, be small ones for sure.
As you slide down the banister of life,
may the splinters never point in the wrong direction.
May you have warm words on a cold evening,
a full moon on a dark night,
and the road downhill all the way to your door.

We thank you for all your passion and wish you good fortune in your future!

Greetings Crunchers!

My machine was cranking out N-Body's quite well - and at one point I was doing them exclusively when there was lots of work to do and I felt my 8 core machine should practice working as a team.

Recently though I have noticed 5 Errors using MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation so far since the project started offering them again to my system.

Looking at the task ID numbers I notice my box isn't the only one choking on these bits and bytes.

Cheers to all!
