I'm told that tasks have started coming down asking for 3337.86Mb rather than 3814.7Mb. If you've increased your RAM available to Boinc, hopefully you may start to get a few by now?
I only have 3.1(67?)gb of free memory available, or so BOINCC reports, on the hosts with 4gb physical RAM. One of the hosts has started running Rosetta again; I will check on the other one in a few hours.

You need to change the "When computer is in use, use at most" value as well
Yeah, did that at the same time. It is working now on one host, but apparently not the other, which I will check on Monday.

The most accurate comparison would be mine, over the whole world.
The most accurate comparison would be 2020 COVID stats compared to 2012 cancer stats from tinfoilhat.com, rather than 2020 cancer stats from the American CANCER society. Why? BECAUSE HUFFER HAS SPOKEN

Less people smoke. So all we've done is make people's lives miserable, not cure cancer.
My Grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, 'If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately.'. Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- 'Don't ever smoke. Please don't put your family through what your Grandfather put us through." I agreed, and I have never touched a cigarette. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because this statement of yours gave me cancer anyway.

If I feel like I have the flu, I'm ill, end of story.
You would be having an immune system response. Feel free to continue making up your own definitions for things and changing the subject when you get called out for saying something wrong. I realize that your ego won't have it any other way.

I'm not going to do that to myself on purpose.
My, you ARE a delicate little flower, aren't you? "Horrid side effects" -- and you mock others as weak?

Actually there's no reason you couldn't (apart from expense, and risk of the rocket failing and it landing back on earth in pieces).
Well, Huffer, I see that you've decided to don the red nose and the big floppy shoes again. There IS a reason, and it's called "orbital mechanics." The amount of thrust required to shoot it into the sun would be prohibitive. I'm not going to bother explaining it to you. Google it -- something that you could have done prior to making yourself look foolish (again), if you weren't so arrogantly certain about your understanding and knowledge.

Do you really think the sun (which is an extreme nuclear power station) would notice?
So, you also don't understand that the source of the sun's power is fusion, not fission? Add that to the list.

At some point you're going to ask yourself why you're contributing to a site that's currently working toward increasing knowledge and production of several types of cures and palliatives for CV19 while simultaneously being delighted by every death as it reduces the population of the weakest and most vulnerable.
This is side-splittingly hilarious! I can't wait to see how Puffer wiggles out of this latest hypocrisy.

The vaccines for COVID are mRNA based. That means that they have the genetic code for the coronavirus, but not the ability to infect cells and rewire them to churn out copies of themselves. They are UNABLE to cause COVID. They are UNABLE to replicate.
I have to amend this, as I found out just now that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is DNA based. However, the scenario that Puffer described, where a virus lays dormant for a time and then awakes after the T-cells "forget" the virus sequence, is extremely unlikely. First, it would require ALL of the latent virii to be dormant, which doesn't happen. Different virii in different location would periodically activate, refreshing the "memory." Second, the time required for the "memory" to erode is on the order of decades.

So Puffer's scenario works on paper, but not in real life.

By the way, the reason Johnson & Johnson went with a DNA-based vaccine are well-founded. There is only one shot necessary, rather than two for mRNA-based vaccines, which is a huge logistical advantage. DNA-based vaccines are also much more stable, so it's less like to "go bad" and less expensive to store and transport. And mRNA vaccines are a new technology. DNA vaccines have been around for a relatively long time and are better understood. Every shot anyone has ever had, up until COVID, has a DNA vaccine.

change the amount of memory when the computer is idle to 99%
I did it and there was no immediate effect, but let's let it breathe for awhile and see what happens. Thanks for the tip.

Still getting plenty of failures of the norn_struct_profile_layered_design_ Taks. Probably around a 40% failure rate at present. Tasks complete OK but then fail when trying to return the result. Although you do get Credit for it, it's only a bit over 2/3 of the Credit you get for one that's Valid.
I'm getting work for my hosts which have 8gb or more of memory. The ones with 4gb still are not getting work. The error notice has changed. It used to say that it needed 6.2gb of memory but only 3.1gb was available; now it says that it needs 3.8gb of memory but only 3.1gb is available. So a change was made, but it has no effect, probably because whoever made it didn't research how much memory is required for basic operation of a host with 4gb of RAM.

Post:
The reason your figure was 4x and changed to 3.1x over time
An insignificant change.
Overstating it by 30% is insignificant? More to the point, it indicates that you formed an opinion, then made up some numbers to support it, then looked for a source to support it. I got my information from the American Cancer Society, which is why, BTW, that I quoted USA COVID deaths. Not because I'm arrogantly American (I don't even live in the USA, you clown!), but because it was the most accurate comparison.

Cancer will stay the same until we make cures.
An ignorant statement. Cancer rates have been gradually dropping as sources of cancer are discovered in things like consumer products and eliminated. Living is easy with eyes closed, amirite?

There's also no way of telling if the vaccine you're given, which can give you the same symptoms, will stay in your forever and kill you later on.
Do you have any idea how immunity is formed in the human body? No, of course you don't. When you are infected with a virus for the first time, there is some hysteresis between being infected and your immune system becoming aware that the virus is a threat. During that time, the virus gets a head start, and you fall ill. The symptoms that you express are your body fighting off the infection. If you are able to do so successfully, and not die, your T cells develop a protein on their surfaces that will recognize a virally-infected cell, of the same type, if they encounter it again. The infection can still occur, but the virus loses the ability to get a head start over your immune system.

The vaccines for COVID are mRNA based. That means that they have the genetic code for the coronavirus, but not the ability to infect cells and rewire them to churn out copies of themselves. They are UNABLE to cause COVID. They are UNABLE to replicate. They do, however, trigger an immune system response, which is why there can be symptoms. Eventually, they disintegrate.

Your statement is ignorant because you utterly fail to understand how the vaccines against COVID work. Will that change your mind about the COVID vaccines? No. Will it give you pause that maybe you don't know as much as you think that you know about the subject? Also no. Will it make you engage in some self-reflection to reassess your other beliefs? [checks notes] Still no.

Tell me, is 3,163,531 or 9,600,000 a bigger number?
In 2020, 1,806,590 new cancer cases and 606,520 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United States. That's compared to roughly 500k deaths from COVID over about 9 months.

How about we compare apples to apples, rather than 2012 oranges?

Not only are you a POS, but you are a dishonest POS. Not like it matters anyway. The two things are completely unalike.

Listen…I realize that your life is such a total failure in every conceivable way that you have to make up some self-defensive fantasy that you are actually elevated and enlightened. The rest of us don't appreciate you, not because you are a POS, but being peasants we can't appreciate how superior you are, even though Dunning-Kruger doesn't exist.

But to me, and apparently to others here, you're just a POS. Deal with it.

Can anyone ban this guy from forum, please?
I don't support this.

Social media, which is the anus of humanity, has enabled the ability to distill groups of people to a uniform political ideology. That in my view has been the engine of partisanship.

We need to see the Peter Huffers of the world and they need to be able to see us.

If all the virus deniers would label themselves, we could find out.
I read a post on Reddit from an ER nurse. Her facility tests people for COVID at entry and puts them in one of two waiting rooms: the first room is for those who test negative; the second is for people who have the virus, test positive, or are of an unknown status.

So this Karen comes in, refuses to be tested, brays loud and proud about how COVID is just a hoax. Then they go to put her in room #2, since her status is known, and she screams, "You can't put me in there! I might catch COVID!!"

That, for me, is the archtypical Karen/COVID-denier story. It's not about ideology. They just have nothing in their lives other than the self-righteous satisfaction that comes from being a pain in the ass to other people.

You read that Win 7 supports SSDs, through the updates. Not out of the box back in 2009.

Do you know how to turn on your computer, or do you have to have someone do it for you?

Trimming is what a defrag program does when presented with an SSD, and it speeds it up just like defragging does.
You know what else is a defragging program? Overclocking! Because it speeds up your system just like defragging does.
