Just got home from being away for the weekend. No tasks available for short runs or long runs? Looks like my last task completed just before noon today (15:48 UTC.

There should be plenty of fresh WU in the next few hours.

Are there any more short run tasks in the pipeline?

Try to run long runs with 0,05 day work buffer in the meantime.

thanks for the update. I was wondering we were going to see some more shorter tasks. In the meantime I am running a long task

Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for them.

I only have 750TIs and the long tasks are not worth running on them IMHO.

IMHO you are wrong :)

With current types of Long WU in circulation (GERARD_FXCXCL12_LIG, NOELIA_c36x467x, SDOERR_ntl9evSSXX) a 750Ti can get you 220-255K PPD. Not half-bad!

Check out my tasks, the ones taking ~65K secs are on my 750Ti.

I have two PCs which are used on varying schedules for processing different BOINC WUs as well as GPUGruid WUs.Because of the inflated cost of 'green' electricity and as I am retired, I must manoeuvre my processing schedule to control my costs.

I await the arrival of more short WUs to feed my two GTX 650 Ti GPUs. Until then these are processing POEM WUs at night. Once the short WUs are available, I will process them at night when electricity prices are a little lower. I will continue processing 6 - 8 long WUs each weekend with my GTX 660 Ti GPUs.

In total I have four PCs built over the last 10 years. Three of these are now running Linux Mint with the 8 core scheduled to be converted by the end of November.

Please keep the short as well as the long WUs rolling as I want to contribute as much as possible to GPUGrid research.

I understand your point of view but I'm looking more at efficiency than PPD.
