[QUOTE=bcp19;314583]That wouldn't be practical for anyone who has more than 1 GPU.[/QUOTE]
I guess I don't see why? What do you mean because in my assignments page I can see my average per day and when I select assignments it tells me x.xxx of your days. I'm just asking for a general number so if I select 10 or 100, etc., assignments I can see about what it will take me to finish them. It's my job to divide them as necessary over the GPUs.

In either case, it's just a nicety for when I'm selecting exponents.

I have 7 GPUs running 18 instances of mfaktc/o and average over 1100 GHzD/Day. I add assignments on a per instance, not a per GPU case. 2 of the GPUs I request 25 assignments at a time (for 5 total instances) which would be roughly 135 GHzD work or ~3 hours when compared to my average. 1 GPU (running 2 instances) I get 100 assignments at a time, ~1654 GHzD or 1.5 days, the other 4 get 50 at a time and combined have 11 instances, but get an added 180-800GHzD work due to assignment type.

The GPUs I get 25 assignments for are kinda slow, doing 5-6 assignments per day, so this adds 4-5 days of work. The GPU I get 100 for completes 11 per day, so this adds ~9 days of work and the ones with 50 complete between 6 and 9 per day which adds between 5 and 9 days of work. I check file size daily to determine if more assignments need to be added, so some days I have 0-3 files I add work to, some days 8-10.

That makes sense. I have 5 and I fill them all at the same time. Sometimes I have to balance a few workers, but since the cards are all the same it works out pretty well for me. I just wish I had a program to take my assignments and automatically distribute them to the workers.

This is the issue I have to deal with.

The estimate is based on the individual user's overall performance -- not the individual Computer, nor the individual GPU instance (since even one GPU needs more than one instance to be efficient).

A non-trivial, but not intractable, problem.

Unfortunately I've been a little busy lately on other matters.

I thought the mfaktXapp did just that.

I haven't seen it yet. I will check it out. Thanks for the tip.

On the page that gives you all the assignments there is a button to make a worktodo.txt file. Can you add a button to copy all the newly assigned work to the clipboard?

I can look into that. However, can you not simply highlight the assignments and press Ctrl-C?

Of course I can, and that's what I do. Just asking ;)

This is non trivial, since it is dangerous.

Naturally M$'s Internet Exploder allows it, but all other browers (correctly) make it difficult.

Since all the alternative solutions come down to pre-selecting the text which the user then has to Cntl-C, I'm just going to leave the system as it is.

This is a non issue in my opinion but I have a suggestion on how it could almost be done.

How about putting the text in an FORM text edit element, that way you only need to click the text and press ctrl-A and ctrl-C to mark the text.
I usually makes the mistake and presses those keys before thinking and ends up marking all of the page instead of just the assignment. :grin:
