Is Einstein@Home out of work, or down, or is there a change I need to make in my BOINC set up to resume getting work from Einstein@Home?
Getting Einstein work here just fine on both machines working it.

Since the main page still says "The SETI@home message boards will continue to operate", I must believe that, and the problem we have now is on our side of the Internet.

My fave place opened some of the special brew before the blast doors had finished closing

So I guess I have to hoist some virtual brew for a while till they get it sorted.

Gotta love those breezy days ...

. . I must dare to interrupt the frivolities with a technical question without notice. Does anyone know if there are any repository Nvidia drivers (Linux) that support OpenCL?

Stephen

? ?

Here's what I use for fresh installs:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-430 
sudo apt install ocl-icd-libopencl1
