As far as I know, only WIFI is used for the connection.

You are downloading work from a project server, you are getting the error from their server. It's nothing that BOINC can do something about or has a workaround for, you'll have to check if it's something the project knows about. Looking at the Rosetta forums, I find someone else reporting the same error, so you'll have to wait until Rosetta fixes things.

You can set global limits to CPU usage, storage etc. in BOINC manager that will give a total limit.
Preferences set through BOINC manager are local and for that one computer only, although they are used by all projects one added.

The global computing preferences via the website are as the name implies global, set at one project, they will propagate to all others on the same venue/location by being contacted by BOINC. That has always worked this way, I wouldn't know why it still wouldn't.

I asked the store about that and they said my present Corsair H100i (240mm AIO) should suffice, but if it doesnt, I will upgrade to the H115i (280mm AIO).

I also don't plan to run it in SMT from the beginning. Haven't done that with my 3900x either. Going from 4 cores to 12 was enough already. 😁

Btw, the TDP of both processors is the same 105W.

Our Ministers of the Exterior and Defense got a Motion of Censure today over how the Afghanistan evacuation was done (really really really really really badly, some Dutchmen are still in Afg with no place to go). The Minister of Defense decided to ignore the motion and stayed on. The Minister of the Exteriro took her leave. But only from the cabinet! She stays on as Member of Parliament and as the leader of the second largest political party, and so she can still continue trying to form a new government (we had elections back in March, our outgoing cabinet has no hurry to go away and/or form a new cabinet) and come back as a Minister or the Vice MP. Really. Yep. Our democracy is so broken.

Hi there,

I hope this newsletter finds you well! I just wanted to let you know that we have launched two brand new projects today, and the research teams running them would be really appreciative of any help you could give them. Find out more below:


Spyfish Aotearoa

Ready to dive into New Zealand waters?

Jump into Spyfish Aotearoa and help researchers count and identify fish in underwater videos. The New Zealand Department of Conservation and Wildlife.ai are using cameras to estimate fish abundance inside and outside marine reserves. The underwater cameras are baited to attract marine species like blue cod, snapper, sharks, and many more without disturbing them. There are thousands of videos so they need your help to classify what you see.

The underwater footage will transport you into the depths of unique marine reserves from Aotearoa/New Zealand. Be part of research showing the effectiveness of marine reserves, the impacts of climate change and plastic pollution in our oceans. Your participation will guide marine management efforts to protect the taonga (treasured) species of Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Learn more, and get involved at https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/victorav/spyfish-aotearoa.


Frog Find

Frogs need our help!

Following bushfires, floods and a host of other threats including water pollution and disease, our frogs really have their backs against the wall.

Frog Find uses frog sounds recorded from streams, ponds and wetlands to work out who is calling where. Researchers have put recorders in places where frogs were historically detected and new places where we might expect to find them. Now they need your ears to help them in this detective work!

In just 30 seconds you can identify whether there is a threatened frog calling at one of the sites. Thanks to the help of local community groups the research team has been able to increase our monitoring programs to include areas in and around national parks and even right in people’s backyards!

Frog Find has been developed by the Conservation Science Research Group at the University of Newcastle, working to preserve frog populations now and into the future. Information gathered from Frog Find will help researchers identify immediate threats to frog survival and how populations respond to these threats. This will help shape conservation efforts.

Learn more, and get involved at https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/ollibruuh/frog-find.


Thanks so much for your continued efforts on the Zooniverse!

Hi there,

Please help us test a potential new Zooniverse project - Planet Hunters NGTS

What the researchers say:
"The Next-Generation Transit Survey have been searching for transiting exoplanets around the brightest stars in the sky. We need your help sifting through the observations flagged by the computers to search for hidden worlds that might have been missed in the NGTS team's review. Most of the planets in the dataset have likely been found already, but you just might be the first to find a new exoplanet not known before!"

How to help out:
Try it out now at https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/mschwamb/planet-hunters-ngts and give us your feedback via this form https://forms.gle/rQMsgV42R6v3ZjXE7 (which you can also reach by clicking the link on the project itself).

Your feedback is extremely important to us when deciding whether to approve or reject a project. To date you have helped launch over 350 Zooniverse projects!

Thanks for all your help,

Grant & the Zooniverse Team


Hi there,

In the seven years since the last large-scale Zooniverse survey was conducted, the number of projects has substantially increased and millions of new participants have joined the Zooniverse community. Now, we are conducting a new “Survey of the Zooniverse” to learn more about our growing community and we need your input. Your participation in this survey will help us understand what makes projects successful, what factors encourage or discourage participation in Zooniverse, and more. We hope this new research will help guide the development of better people-powered research projects in the future.

Survey Link: 2021 Survey of the Zooniverse

If you would like to participate please complete the survey by October 5th 2021. The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

This survey is being conducted as part of a collaborative investigation by Zooniverse, researchers at the University of Wisconsin – Madison in the USA, and the University of Nottingham in the UK. Your results will be kept confidential. This study has been approved by the UW-Madison Institutional Review Board (IRB Approval No. 2021-0581).

As a token of our gratitude, after completing the survey, if you choose to, you will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win a $100 (or equivalent value) gift card.

Thank you very much for your time and kind participation. We really value your input.



Best regards,

Today, in anticipation of my upcoming birthday I splurged on myself. I either wanted a new videocard, or a new CPU. With just a normal RX 6800 already costing an eye watering €1,300.- I decided to splurge on a new CPU, upgrading from my AMD 3900X to an AMD 5950X. Then the 3900X can go into my Taichi motherboard (which was tested and found to be not defective) into the TV server. Lots of rebuilding in my near future. :)

Several projects do already have iGPU applications
I think boboviz means the discrete Intel GPU, or the Intel XE architecture. Let's first wait and see if someone has a problem with getting it detected before we get the devs to look at it.
