Apparently we're pretty much caught up on GPUGRID WUs, with the only WUs out in the wild being in progress. It's the first time I've seen that in two months when it wasn't related to server issues. I'm signed up for beta WUs too, so I guess that'll be the next thing we'll be waiting for.

I should probably learn how to set up something else GPU related to pick up the slack while the project is empty.

folding@home has many GPU work units now against Corona Virus. So that would be a good option.

So far, I've found a few things about Folding@Home setup.

Make sure you're using the latest version of their software - the version from a month ago has problems scheduling GPU work.

When you set up the GPU slot, you MUST find and click the hard-to-see circle to the left of the GPU part of the slot setup selections.

You first GPU task must be with the Full power setting. Those after that can use any power setting.

BOINC needs to be set up to pause any work on the GPU while Folding@Home is using it.

Their forums server is down.

Einstein project used both NVIDIA and Intel GPUs for WU.
