Yea Me, I managed to get 5 100,000 Hr Purple Stars, I believe Zombie67 is the only other one with that distinction ... :)


Awesome work there STEVE, you join zombie67 [MM] and Mumps [MM] with all 5 stars Purple.

I have just one purple star you have 20, way to go.

Conan


My guess is that he has 100 applications with a purple star, as 20 only give you one star in your signature....

Upgrade Time

My 4th Star has turned PINK

(or whatever that colour is)

>>>>

80 Applications now past 10000 Hours

This changing colours is a slow motion thing but great when it happens.

Onward with the fun.

Conan


Congratulations on the magenta (that's the name) 4th star!

My third star became lime yesterday. Now my next goal is to turn my 11th star jade.

Well if they're not, there's nothing I can do about it. The BIOS says "VT Enabled", and there's no setting there to set for that ...


This may have been caused by an infamous Microsoft Windows update (KB5031361 and KB5031222). Check whether there's a fix -or update to their latest and greatest and don't forget to look for optional updates.

A few years ago, I introduced a limitation on multiple clients for same host. Users was complaining about this. So I removed it.
Look what's happening when there are no limitations.


Once upon a time there were eight (!) different Quake Catcher Networks *projects*, that all required just one sensor, and could all be run -even simultaniously, being NCI- on the original single core Raspberry Pi.
They all had their own URL:
    [*]Quake-Catcher Network Sensor Monitoring
    [*]Quake-Catcher Network Continual Monitoring
    [*]Quake-Catcher Network EMSC / CSEM
    [*]Quake-Catcher Network Continual EMSC / CSEM
    [*]La Red Atrapa de Sismos
    [*]La Red Atrapa de Sismos Continuo (offline)
    [*]Quake-Catcher Network (Taiwan)
    [*]Quake-Catcher Network Continual (Taiwan)


Unfortunately for me the Raspberry Sense Hat was not that sensor, even though the main QCN had begun philosophizing about a new type of sensor that would made use use of the 40 GPIO pins instead of an USB connector.

My 8th star has turned sapphire, some weeks after my 14th star turned ruby.

Upgrade Time

My 13th Star has turned GOLD

>>>>

320 Applications now past 500 Hours

Colour changes are slow but very worthwhile.

Onward with the fun.

Conan

Your 16th actually

One of my bigger upgrades

My 5th Star has turned SAPPHIRE

>>>>

120 Applications now past 5,000 Hours

I love it when a colour changes, makes some of the effort seem worthwhile.

Onward with the fun. (I know Sapphires can be any colour but sounds better than just Blue)

Conan


Your 6th?

Slight modification to the first 'hack'

sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
sudo apt update
sudo apt install libc6:armhf libstdc++6:armhf zlib1g:armhf libfuse2:armhf libgomp1:armhf libboinc7:armhf

as one user reported
cmdock: error while loading shared libraries: libgomp.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any hints on how to make a 32bit Arm based ChromeBook attach and crunch the short, and future even shorter, tasks?

As described in the previous post. But be sure it IS Arm-based, quite a lot have Celeron CPUs. And the 'hacks' to run 32-bit Arm apps on a 64-bit Arm system do not count for 64-bit x86-64 systems.


Just found out Chrome OS has more in common with Android than with Linux. In this case you can run the SiDock small app natively on your chromebook if the Chrome OS is for 32-bit ARM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIczNZ1f58w?t=5. Then follow
How to run Linux apps in Chrome.

Dang, guess I won't be running the Short Version Wu's from Sidock. Requires Linux which I have but some special configuring needs to be done that's over my pay grade ... lol

Tried to get my android & notebook to attach but they won't ...


SiDock Shorts requires your client to be able to run 32-bit Linux/ARM applications, so I set a 32-bit Odroid-C1 and a dito Asus Tinker Board to it. They received their WUs and are crunching.

If and when I want to set my 64-bit ARM clients to it I need to make sure that they are able to run 32-bit apps. How to do that:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
sudo apt update
sudo apt install libc6:armhf libstdc++6:armhf zlib1g:armhf libfuse2:armhf

Additionally, just to make sure, you have to add TWO alternate platform identifiers to your cc_config.xml file (because you can't know beforehand what they will use):

<cc_config>
<options>
<alt_platform>arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf</alt_platform>
<alt_platform>armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf</alt_platform>
</options>
</cc_config>


Your Android & Notebook may have a 64-bit OS as well

Big upgrade for me

My 1st star has turned Lime Green

>>>>

20 Applications now past 25,000 Hours

It takes some time to change the colours but it is an achievement when we do.

Onward with the fun.

Conan


Congratulations!

My 5th star has turned BLUE

>>>>

I have finally reached the original highest goal for this project of 5 BLUE STARS, 100 Applications of 5,000 HOURS each.
It has taken a very long time and I thought I would never get there.

(I am about the 82nd person to reach this goal, better late than never)

Slowly changing a colour every now and then, but it does take time.

Conan


Congratulations!


Next 20
