Cool, looks like you've got 4.68 sixtrack in alpha.

Even though the site insists that it is out of work, I keep getting some, or so it seems...

Is it just me?

nope.... as mentioned before by other people... it seems that the new job submission script doesn't reach all the way to the front page...
We all keep getting work...

I thought the 'number of workunits' number is a cached value: To reduce load on the sql server, it did a query every now and then, and left the result cached.
That way, every new visitor doesn't generate extra sql queries just by visiting the front page.

I think that Predictor does the a similar thing. They update every 4 hours.
http://predictor.scripps.edu/server_info.php

Depending on how the databases are set up,some sql queries are better off cached, because to generate a report style result, you might need to have the sql server go through the whole list of workunits to generate the answer (ie.. units ready to download as opposed to number of all workunits that are in the database)

The 'run' for the 30'000 WU's seems to be over: ... ;-(

[EDIT]I had only 1 WU with 0 CPU time, it seems to me this one had a 'big amplitude' at the beginning, so it crashed. WU ID: 257942

Makes sense for them to do a small test first before firing off hordes of WU's and discovering they had left some numbers or underscores out of the unit names ;-)

Cheers,

My first WU
Results ready to send 179
Results in progress 5,783
Workunits waiting for validation 0
Workunits waiting for assimilation 0
Workunits waiting for deletion 1
Results waiting for deletion 2
Transitioner backlog (hours) 0

Its the one waiting for deletion, i must have got the last one and I accidentally killed it with the screen saver.

I have been getting some each day lately and some run for 30mins and some are the ones that just run for a few seconds.

But I keep checking and asking for more and I get a couple tasks at a time so far.

why? because there isn\'t any work and there probably never will be. 2 reasons..distributed computing has lost most of it\'s value with the steep drop in price per teraflop of processing and an installation like the LHC has all the computing power it needs because it\'s CHEAP now. These \'gpu super towers\' they\'re selling the BOINC community for under 1000 usd might give you a clue there.
Secondly, the scientists are too worried about being beat to publishing so the data won\'t be sent out for public crunching.
I keep LHC on my list, but I have 3 other very active projects going as well because I don\'t expect to see anything more from here. It\'s done, they don\'t need or want us and never really did. The WU we just got were almost certainly just a periodic test to check how many people are hooked up and how much computing power they represent. Bookkeeping.

Right now we are working on a Alpha test for the future Large Hadron Collider project so just keep watching and one of these days......

Yes Magic. I\'m connected and have been running either boinc or seti 24/7 for the last 12 years now.
The bad news on the upgrade design crunching is, if people have been doing their jobs, the original design phase should have refined the process enough to have cut the processing needs for the redesign to very little. LOL

I recently got my first WU in over 2 years! woo finally, too bad it ended with a computation error after 2.7 seconds :D

Oh well, my pc will just keep on begging for LHC work while it happily crunches other stuff.
