From today's front page:

QUOTE - "Good News: The latest run has finished successfully. Two of the five studies we also ran locally. The studies run on LHC@home are 100% identical to the control studies. Some new scripts have been developed which hopefully should increase the speed and ease of use of the job submission. Finally we are planning a big study of the beam to beam effect, hopefully starting next week."

Can one infer from this news that the current job submission process is somehow responsible for the less then steady amount of work we've received over the last several months, and that with a 'big study' hopefully coming next weeek that more work (1 million new WU's?) may be available then??

The project success rate speaks volumes for the dedication of everyone involved, and "the powers that be" should take a bow and be recognized for their efforts to understand better the particle physics science at the heart of what we all do here....

Bravo!!

To my mind are those teasing hints in there ...

1) Identical results between BOINC and studies run locally, and
2) they have not at all tapped the potential participant base for BOINC

Oh my yes, we can race the other study group. Just think, if they opened up the Participant sign-up we could probably beat the local production releasing that for other work! :)

And that is fantastic recognition Logan5, you have to imagine what the eyebrows are doing back at CERN with the ability of the BOINC Network. The compuers doing local studies have to cost them one way or another, and we cost only a couple servers and staff to "man" them ...
