Noelia's back with her video memory sucking monsters and still no separate queue. Anyone with a card that has only 1Gb memory or less prepare for loooong run times and unresponsive pc's.

There's this Elton John tune running through my head...

The wi-itch, the wi-itch, the witch is back
With mem suckin' monsterz as a matter o' fact

Sorry Noelia, just joking :-)

Thanks for the heads up. But I have bailed out of anything less than 2 GB, and am looking forward to the work.

I need a good stability checker too, and this could be it.

I love these Noelia's but all I get are Santi's.

Same here. Can we get a separate work queue for Noelia - the only work that can get me 100% load? Santi uses about 75% of my GPU...

maybe one can optimize CPU part of the code a bit to do more work per API call?

I think they are still leftovers of the monsters. There should be no new ones on the way and Noelia confirmed that she didn't send any. So it must be parts of the old WU's that are still struggling to finish.
