Message 3316 - Posted: 5 Nov 2023, 20:24:59 UTC - in response to Message 3315.

When I run F@H and OPNG concurrently, it's not really by design. The OPNG tasks are so unpredictable that I can't wait for them to come and turn F@H on and off. F@H basically utilizes the whole (4070 Ti) gpu. OPNG tasks, when they show up, poorly utilize the gpu. At one point, I had 3-4 running at the same time, to try to keep the gpu busy.

I would like to know whether running OPNG + F@H simultaneously is efficient, or if they interfere with each other and end up taking more time than running them sequentially.

I run 2 OPNG at once on my R9 Nano (a 4GB 8000GFlop card), and they fully use it. If they run at the same time as Folding, Folding almost stops. I think it all depends on what card you have.

I've never come across interference causing less productivity. Chips are clever enough to keep themselves busy with something all the time.

I ran GPUGRID for a while and those tasks alternated between the cpu and gpu. The waste bugged me, but running anything else slowed it down.

I can't run GPUGrid, I have no desire to buy a vastly overpriced Nvidia. But I've been told you can run a few of them at once until you're short of VRAM, then run another project aswell.

You are trying to understand 18th, 19th and 20th centutry Laws based on 21st lving, times were different when those Ammendments were made in Law, and then some were reppealed later on.


Most of what I wrote is still law.


Yes it is but if you understood WHY it might help you figure out WHY they are still Laws...to change a Constitutional Amendment takes 2/3rds of Congress to agree to send to the States and then it takes 2/3rds of them to ALSO agree to change the Law. It took over 20 years to change a Constitutional Amendment the last time it was changed and MOST of the people agreed it was one that NEEDED changing!!

Oh and BTW Sweden has more guns per capita than the US does but has FAR fewer, again by capita, gun crimes than the US does. All the 'experts' are trying to get to the root question of why but as you'd expect the results are complicated.


The reason is simple, Swedish people are far more intelligent than Americans. Letting a country full of children run around with weapons for adults is going to end in death.


That would be like me saying that Scotland is full of nothing but drunks and men shagging sheep!! BOTH of our statements are UNTRUE and we BOTH know it!! The USA has 333.29 Million people, 99% of them either don't own guns or are responsible gun owners!! The easy answer problem is the inner cities with waaay too many people in a dead end life with nothing to lose and getting their hands on a $40 gun is as easy as spitting on the ground. In their dead end lives a gun commands respect especially if you are willing to use it regardless of the consequences!! AND in some cases jail is a FAR better life than not eating for days at a time or sleeping in a place that is unsafe or full of people doing drugs.

Which means most of you agree with the daft laws I quoted.

But it would be true if you said there were more of them than another country.

You only need 0.1% of people to be nuts to kill a load of people.

The easy answer problem is the inner cities with waaay too many people in a dead end life with nothing to lose and getting their hands on a $40 gun is as easy as spitting on the ground.

So the only way to stop them is remove the guns. Unless you know of a way to make everyone well off.

l008com, to answer your question in a nutshell "new work will be available" when an experiment has work to process. In regards to when this will be I have no idea, we will know when it appears in our work queues :-)
