Nice paper Vlad and I know it is to be expected but thanks for the acknowledgment of the volunteers.
Glad we surprised you with regard to the resources supplied to get the work done :-)

Yes, I have seen that challenge but we are engaged in the current pointless Sprint challenge that is part of Formula Boinc.

I say pointless because that is exactly how much credit I will get, there is very little work and the project does not allow new accounts to be created. I suppose very little is better than none !

If Acoustics@home gets added to DC-Vault, and I can't see any reason why it wouldn't, then we will need to get stuck in to better our team position there.

Thanks again !
I'm hoping Bok finds some time to get these badges added to the Free-DC stats too :-)

So when the Neutron COD count hits 0 that is everything sent out to be processed and time to find something else to do ?

Thanks, I was getting worried I might fall short.

CoolAtchOk is also pushing for 200K and will be hoping the work lasts a little bit longer.

Getting errors trying to upload/download work :-(

Looks like Seti.Germany and Seti.USA are tearing your server to shreds as they compete for number 1 spot.

I'd suggest banning both teams and their members so everyone else can upload/download our work in peace :-)


Nice shot PDW, I love it :)

So that's S.U in favour of the motion, there being no objection from S.G I declare the motion carried.
If you could block them at your earliest convenience Vlad that would be much appreciated.

Okay, thanks for the update.
That Mercury tool looks pretty nifty !

Okay, you can make the holes in the net bigger but not sure how much bigger to make them in case real fish get through ?

Is this something that needs fixing and can be fixed ?

Hi,

I've just found one that has been running for 1 hour and 20 minutes so far on a GPU. It's coming up to 88% complete, others who have run it got similar run times.

This is the task: http://xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/result.php?resultid=19139612
I expect it to finish in the next 15 minutes.

After 8.5 days and the counter at 66.77% here are my guesses:

1) 0
2) 0
3) 6
4) 72
5) 0
6) 0
7) 11
8) 40

Tiebreaker: 410

Always knew 1, 2, 5, & 6 would be 0 so that was 20 points in the bag :-)

You should have checked the current burn rate before posting !
With just over a week to go to the deadline I'll wait till nearer the time :)
Once people realise how little time is left it is less likely that they stop and much more likely that the burn rate will increase as point/badge targets are sought.

I'm not that bothered by it, I know what they look like but...

1) Perhaps a Badges page linked to from the main page showing all the badges in one place would help.
2) If you wanted to put more effort in maybe change the diamond badge to have 5 diamond shapes instead of circles.
3) Last suggestion would be to but some Braille symbols down the left hand edge of the badges so people can touch their monitor screen and feel the difference ;-)

Okay, good to know and get it corrected :)

Didn't realise you had updated your post to say you'd fixed it.

Not sure if connected but the completed calculation has been stuck at 49.27% for a while now on the server status page ?

Had been hoping to post this...

Hi Vlad,

Since the 19th August I have a number of tasks that have been marked as invalid.
The tasks are failing unless they have been run on a GPU under linux.

For example this task: http://xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/workunit.php?wuid=6396703
Some of the tasks are lucky and got 2 linux GPUs but others failed completely.

It isn't a lot, only 185 invalid out of the thousands I do but did something go wrong with these ?

I was wrong, it didn't last a week...

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 78 bytes) in /home/boincadm/projects/xansons4cod/html/inc/db_conn.inc on line 121

If you aren't going to clear the completed results from the database then you will need to increase the limit quite considerably.

Thanks nikolay, that has worked and I can see all my results in their magnificent splendour :-)

Hi,

I am now getting this error message when trying to View my tasks from my account page:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 78 bytes) in /home/boincadm/projects/xansons4cod/html/inc/db_conn.inc on line 121

You need to increase the PHP limit from 128MB, 256MB should give me another week ;-)
