Windows 10 is completely reinstalled. The VM moved back. What a babysitting ^^


Great work Reb!
Just wanna say, I totally support the tireless (and important! as far as I see it) work you do here.
How can I help with a donation?

I just reduce my CPU usage in BOINC to at most 75% of CPU time, that usually does it. But also I allow up to 79°C. With SRBase I always have to keep an eye on the average core temps. Piriform Speccy is a good util for that.

Rebirther! Just wanted to compliment you on what a great job you're doing here. I love this project, and you manage to keep it running efficiently by yourself which is a commendable feat in itself. Keep up the good work! I'll be crunching here for a good while to come. Thanks!

The tasks I'm crunching now are named "R27_retest_ ..."
Did something happen? Was R27 not properly tested the first time?
Just curious, thanks.


The first range was setup twice, the 2nd retest (missing) range was new.


Sooo.. it was just an accident that it was setup twice?
I'm afraid I still don't understand..
these ranges are being retested because... ?
