Our physics dep. promised to give out new work soon. They said "a lot", let's see how much is that:)

Yes, well, so far ... all their "a lot" have been way to little for me! :)

As Babish told President Bartlett, "Bring it on ..." :)

Now, if we could just get them to start thinking on the next expiriment while we work on this one ... I could go to sleep a happy guy ...

Well, I think a lot of computers have a large negative debt on the LHC-account, so we should be able to consume quite a lot of WU's

Thank you for the update Markku, will pass it on to our "very anxious' LHC crunching team ;-)

so....

Soon = today
and
Tomorrow = some time in the future, but not the day after today.
and
By the end of the week = not the end of this week, just any week in the future.

Well, the news says 20K, the staatus line says 125,000 ... so, I am not looking a gift horse in the mouth ...

IIRC, they have different definitions at LHC for "jobs" and "work units." A job is multiple work units, I believe, explaining the larger number on the status line.

Some clarification on terms: job = workunit and workunit = X results. Currently X is 5, meaning that each workunit makes five results that are sent to the clients. So, to be precise, the Server Status should say "NNN results". But for a first-time user "result" is a bit misleading - after all, it means something already done. So we chose to use "workunit" which isn't that far from the truth.

"result" is a database term. In BOINC database a result is a "result" even before it's computed. But because it's used in database, it's used in the BOINC jargon generally.

It is one of mine too (Einstein@Home's is neat too) ... But I still can't figure out what the fireflys are doing ... it does not look to me like it is a representation of the particles in a race track ... nor as a cross-section ...

So, I don't know how it reflects reality ... thot that I run the graphics all that much ...

It doesn't, I guess. It's just nice to look at =)
