Dum de dum....

Any chance for some more work soon?

Running smoothly? Over the past day, I have had over 160 fail to validate. Or do you mean "running smoothly, now that I just now fixed that problem?" Because those failures were with the current 0.11 app. I'm confused.

FWIW, I have 162 tasks that "Validate Error", with v0.11.

Meh. Bumping up the credits would cover the validation issues over time.

I have one validate error so far with this batch:

Are the tasks much longer in this batch?

Edit: Never mind. I just looked, and the earlier tasks were ~4000 seconds, which matches the current tasks. For some reason, I thought tasks in the earlier batches were very short.

Because I am curious, and if possible can the amount of credit granted per work unit please be explained?


I don't think anyone can explain CreditNew. It appears to be a random number generator, that over time penalizes newer, faster machines. Did that help?

All tasks so far "Validate error" here on both Windows and Linux.


Oh geez, that was a stupid bug in the validator. Should be fixed now for all future workunits. And actually I think the ones marked with error might get fixed the next time they go through the validator.


What would cause them to go through the validator again?

Update (internal) stats only once per week? Am I reading this correctly?

Everything else looks good. Thanks!

It looks like the internal stats are being updated daily. Would it be possible to increase that frequency?

Also, while I am here, I might as well ask the same thing for the stats export. Coud that be increased to (say) every 4 hours?

Thanks!

Yea! OSX is the first app released for once!

P.S. Can stats export please be turned on now?

That's the reason your client can't get all the info from the project. It will all get fixed when apps and tasks are added. I'm pretty sure Travis knows what he's doing. ;)

I have been the main developer and community liaison of the MilkyWay@Home volunteer computing project from the time of its creation four years ago. MilkyWay@Home is using volunteered computers to determine the origin and structure of the Milky Way Galaxy. Due to my efforts, this project has grown to over 25,000 volunteers from over 150 countries, who are contributing around 800 teraflops of computing power [boincstats.com], and has reached over 1.7 petaflops in the past making it the 3rd fastest computing system in the world at the time. I have also implemented versions of this software which are also currently being used by astrophysicists on RPI's BlueGene/L supercomputer and various cluster computing environments.

In a continuation of my work interacting with the public and developing open source volunteer computing systems, I have begun work on DNA@Home to put this same volunteer computing power to work towards finding protein binding sites in DNA.

I expect zombie67 will be along shortly to ask the same question ;)


Ding!

Anyway, good luck with the new project!
