I'm with DrBob and Jeff17... Just close the solo projects once the combined project and sub-projects are ready to go.

It seems like you would be adding risk asking users to merge credits and trying to get stats in synch at external sites -- you might find yourself spending time getting that straight before/during/after the time you're trying to work out any issues with starting the combined project.

Good luck with the transition, Travis. It will be nice to see the projects that have been dormant get back in business.

...It's been awhile but I've generated some new work units today...let me know if there are any problems with the work units that I just sent out...

Good to see the project back in business, Travis. So far, so good...I think. Are you purposely clearing results out of the database quickly? I've seen valids disappear in minutes after they show up.

DNA@Home definitely isn't dead -- we have things in the works -- it's just not progressing as fast as I'd like unfortunately.

Thanks for the update, Travis. Looking forward to the work when we get it.

@Ananas: You asked...
Where does stdout of that result hide?

On the WU results page, click on the Task for stderr output and other details. For the result that Cori mentions, click 734237. Is that what you're looking for?

There's been some movement with the validator: 3 of my WU's have validated since my previous post and the server status page now shows zero WU's waiting for validation (which is down from as many as 200 earlier today). All of my pending WU's are waiting for wingmen to report.

The "Pending credit" link on the "Your account" page doesn't appear to be working. The links for Tasks -> Pending seem to be fine, though.

I've noticed the same thing and have one pending that my wingman and I have been waiting for over six hours to validate.

I just want to be sure it isn't so good by like 10x or 100x...

Based on what I get elsewhere on my 1090t and C2Q, you are definitely below the low end of that range...
Shooting for maybe 5x-7.5x...

...but you might be a little short of that one. I estimate you are somewhere around 4x.
...because of the downtime issues and me still debugging a lot of things. Since a bunch of workunits may fail, I'd like to make up for this with the workunits that do work.

I think we all appreciate that consideration...and for that, we thank you.

Keep up the good work.

Credit is somewhere between AWESOME and OMFG ;)

So maybe too high?

For an established, production CPU project that isn't overly demanding of a host's resources (RAM, run-time, etc.), the values I've gotten are far above average on a 'stone/hour basis. But, if you're still "testing" and there are errors, maybe not so much. Regardless, I'm not going to complain...but send us more! :D

I've finished two mtub_3's without any problems. This one on a 1090t, 336494, and this one, 336485 on a C2Q. Both machines are Win7 hosts. Credit is excellent.

Hi, I just joined on 26 October and cannot get any WUs...I hope I can process some WUs, soon.

Be patient... :-) This is a relatively new project and, as yet, doesn't have steady work. Keep fishing and you'll get a few here and there!

Happy crunching!

Great news!


...basically workunits will be available to everyone who wants one as long...

As long as...what? ;-)

... someone else asked a few minutes before here.

That would be me! :D One thread on this is all we need...which one matters not to me. :-)

Can you start making stats available for sites like BOINCstats, Free-DC, etc.? If and when you do, please grant explicit permission for the stats site admins to publish the project's stats.
