Cool LLRnet servers for NPLB

Note: Please do not use LLRnet "proxy servers" on public LLRnet servers. They will sometimes crash the server.

A daily general report for all of gd_barnes's LLRnet servers is at http://www.noprimeleftbehind.net/llrnet.
An hourly/daily progress report for all NPLB servers is at http://www.noprimeleftbehind.net/sta...p?content=port.
Currently processing ranges last updated 2014-08-17 18:00 GMT.

NPLB LLRnet server #1:
Short identification: G3500
server = "www.noprimeleftbehind.net"
port = 3500
k's: 347/351/355/357/359/361/365/367/369/371/375/377/379/381/383/385/387 (17k maxi-drive)
n-range: 1M-1.61M
currently processing 17k maxi-drive at n= (complete)

NPLB LLRnet server #2:
Short identification: G7000
server = "www.noprimeleftbehind.net"
port = 7000
k's: 317/329/335/341/363/391/393/399 (8k mini-drive)
n-range: 1.3M-1.575M
currently processing 8k mini-drive at n= (complete)

Luckily I haven't found out yet! :)

However it has been hot enough that I know the computers would cook themselves without the A/C.

I'm very curious...Exactly what happens when a computer cooks itself? As funny as it sounds, it's a serious question.

If your cpu has thermal protection then you are probably okay if all works well as it should shut down once it reaches the shutdown temperature. If it doesn't, then the internal temperature will just keep rising until something melts and shorts out. Could be the cpu, could be the power supply, could be a component on the motherboard. What happens when your cpu fan fails to keep the cpu within the required operating temperature range? :)

When a cpu overheats and destroys itself, it's not abnormal for the motherboard to end up unusable too. So the end result can get rather expensive. One of the gents on the amd_users forum had his computers in his garage, and ended up with one of them starting a fire with resulting serious damage to the garage structure of several thousand dollars.

I once saw a video somewhere where some people had some computers laid out without cases, running, on a desk, but with the heatsink/fan not actually attached (just sitting on top of the CPU). Then somebody pulled the heatsink/fan off the CPU, and within seconds, BOOM! The CPU vaporized itself. A close-up shot of the CPU socket revealed nothing but some fine white-grey ash.

It was a pity they did it with good P4's and Athlons, though--if they were smart they would have done it with a Pentium or 486. (You could also say that if they were smart they wouldn't have been vaporizing CPU's in the first place. )

I don't remember exactly where I saw it, I know it wasn't YouTube, so unfortunately I can't provide a link. (I'd somehow managed to save the video file, though, and I've got it on my hard drive, so if anyone wants it just give me a PM/email and I'll send it to you. )

I've uploaded the one I saw earlier to my web hosting space, you can download it here.

Ya, I found and skipped that one as I remembered it was the general consensus of many at the time, that it was fake.
Something to do with the explosion going thru the table or something like that.
The one I linked to is from TomsHardware ...
I too have taken heatsinks off old cpus, and everyone that I did it to, just fried them, and I've never seen any explode.

Found it... ;)

Hmm...maybe the only reason why those exploded, then, was due to way, way, way overclocking in addition to pulling off the heatsink?

Or explosive device, lithium batteries do that when they are shorted out, so maybe they found a way to ignite it via heat. ;)

IB,

I have one client stuck with 40 candidates to upload, I suppose it's an internet issue from my work but just to be safe please tell me what's jobMaxTime for your server port 5000? Thank you.
