Work related questions are best asked at the project forums, as that's where the project application developers live and post.

If you have RAC > 1 you could post in the Number Crunching forum, but seeing your account @Seti you do not. So then post in their GPU Applications forum. Whoever helps you out there (may be me) can then always ask one of the developers to come take a look.

Although I highly suspect it is the age of the GPU, and it not being able to run the correct workgroup size - which is 128 for your GPU and needs to be, if I am not mistaken, 256 or more. You cannot increase the workgroup size without replacing the hardware.
Added to that, the BLC Guppi tasks at Seti take up more memory than the 'normal' Multibeam, it may be that the 512MB on the card is just not enough. Having returned to an earlier BOINC version, you also returned to the earlier non-informative messages. In later BOINC versions it shows why the work is postponed. [/url]

If stdoutdae.txt doesn't show it anymore (this file stores the output of the event log, but is by default just 2MB), stdoutdae.old may hold the older version still.
If neither of these show the previous version, then Windows Event Viewer may show it.

Start->Administrative Tools->Event Viewer->Windows Logs->Select Application, now click the Action menu (top) and then Find..
Type boinc and hit Enter. Just keep pressing F3 until you're at an event before the date you installed the newer BOINC.

Post:
After I reported the issue in BOINC github, the developers have looked into it and fixed the problem.
I have gotten the correct language file from the translation manager and tested it with BOINC 7.8.3 and I can no longer reproduce the problem.

You can do so too:
Download BOINC-Manager.mo from my Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/on76f82uxx5r69p/BOINC-Manager.mo?dl=0
If BOINC is running, do File->Exit and at least exit BOINC Manager.
Navigate to your BOINC Programs directory, default at C:\Program Files\BOINC\
Open the locale folder
Open the es folder
Copy the BOINC-Manager.mo file from my Dropbox into this folder, click Yes to overwrite the previous file.
Now restart BOINC Manager
Options
Other options
Change the language to Spanish
Selecting any project in the Projects tab and then clicking Properties will now show the properties.

Post:
As far as I know, the Linux BOINC clients are all built for Intel/AMD x86 and x64 CPUs. But if you want to be sure, you can contact Gianfranco about it on his BOINC PPA page. He is the official BOINC package maintainer for Ubuntu/Debian.

Interesting red sun in the UK yesterday
We had that one today. Apparently there wasn't a cloud in the sky, but it felt overcast all day long. A combination of Sahara sand and ash from Portugal's forest fires. Very apocalyptic.

Post:
The upcoming BOINC 7.8.3 version will not have a bug fix for this problem, it's even possible that future versions have this problem as well. As far as we can figure at this time, it's a missing character in one of the variables that's causing this. But more problems have been found with the Spanish translation, it may even be required that the whole Spanish translation needs to be checked and (re)done.

If you think you can do it, you can make an account at Transifex and translate BOINC into Spanish.
If you're waiting for someone else to do it, it may take longer, or even never get done.

intelx86 = x86 32 BIT version... for OLDER versions of Windows like XP or VISTA that are 32 BIT installs
Even Windows 10 still comes in 32bit flavor. Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 have all been available in both 32 and 64 bits. It mainly depends on what CPU you have installed, for example the ARMv7 which is 32bit tech and can install Windows.

Just heard on the radio, Morrissey's new song Spent the day in bed.
Looking at the lyrics, it's not as down as you'd normally expect of Morrissey songs.

Post:
1. I see that BOINC is running 1 task per 1 core, I'd like it to use all cores per task, what should I do?
Find a project that has multitasking multithreading applications, else it's quite normal for each CPU core to run one task.

2. How jobs size at grcpool is calculated, can I change job size?
I don't know what you're talking about. Best ask at Gridcoin's forums.

3. There is an option to collect money from BOINC-users and rent supercomputer instead of buying home-level rigs and paying bills for electricity (or even renting clouds personally). Would it be more cost&time effective?
Also, I don't know what you're talking about. Where is this option to collect money from BOINC-users? Who collects it? If you, isn't that a scam, when other BOINC-users pay you for running work via your account on external computers?

Problem: my Radeon x1150 driver version is 8.282.2.1 but "No usable GPUs found"
Your Xpress 1150 is a graphics card, not a general purpose graphics processing unit. In other words, all it can do is calculate the graphics and output those.

I must say, I got that number from the Dutch translation I read first. And thought that a cubic kilometer is already quite a bit. But apparently, according to some other articles, it can blow 1,000 cubic kilometers, which is nothing because it's storing 11,200 cubic miles of magma... My conversion program doesn't even have a cubic mile, but that doesn't matter anymore. It's way too much. ;-)

I don't think it matters much. When that thing blows, it'll eject one cubic kilometer of rocks and ash. I suppose if you're on top of it when it does, that you won't know about it.
