Hi,
Can any one tell me if their recieving any wu's? I've not recieved any since September when they where doing the migration thing. When I visit the sites main page it just says 'up, No work units' even the RSS feed dosn't give any clues to whats going on

If you have left your machines connectiong regularly, you should have got some WU twice this month. There was work for around 8hrs on Nov 2nd and again for around 8hrs on 18th. We normally expect that if work is available for 4hrs or more there will be some for everyone who is connecting regularly. See this thread for more info on what might have stopped your machine getting work.

If you wait hoping to see some on the main page, and then reconnect your machines then yoy are unlikely to be fast enough unless you spend all your life watching the main page.

You may also be interested in a thread about why this project rarely has work

The project usually doesn't have work. There are around 6 forum threads asking the same thing here. Search before posting please.

Ich habe mit dem englischen so meine Probleme, aber vielleicht kann ja mal jemand posten, ob und wann wieder mit Arbeit/WUs zu rechnen ist. Ich habe LHC immer gerne gerechnet und würde es sofort wieder rechnen.

Was that sarcasm? lol

I did a search on this subject and found that maybe there'll be some WU's for those of us willing to share our pc resources are able to do so. I'll hang around for awhile. As it appears to stand right now, there are more than an ample number of contributors to this project.

Thanks to River~~ for linking to some helpfully clarifying items.

Oh well, that is good enough for me :-) at least there was something for me to receive. I hope others got some too.

Yes you were lucky to be in the right place at just the right time :).

This project rarely has work and when there is work, the deadline is usually 7 days. It's not really a good idea to set your cache to 10 days (864000 seconds) because of the possibility that you could get work that you can't even start in time, let alone return. Even if you could do it in time, much of it would be "wasted effort" because the quorum would have already been completed on many work units well before you would be able to start.

It's much more "project friendly" to set a reasonable cache size.


Cheers,
Gary.

Yes you were lucky to be in the right place at just the right time :).

Thank you for the heads up :-) i'm on my last one now. the other projects that i participate in normally run "batch's" or don't always have w.u. So as soon as I see one that has got some w.u.i suspend another and run it manually :-)

So basically, i run two w.u. concurrently, suspend one job and get the smaler w.u. out assap ;-) works great.
besides lhc, I have proteins@home, boincsimap and a few otehrs that have w.u always, so I won't be running on empty. i.e Eindtein@home & seti@home (+ Beta).
my system as configured, is always on "No new work" as soon as units from a project come through. Those are: Einstein, Tanpaku, Seti & Seti Beta & World Community Grid. So as soon as I am running low on W.U. I choose one, get some work and then leave it on "no new work" again and always have Proteins, Boincsimap & LHC to be getting work :-) Boinc has some work, so I am happy with the "under dogs". These are all science related, and that gets me going. some other projects, ie, withing WCG, I have not signed up since I do not beleive in them :-( (example: AIDS due to that I do not think my work would go to other peoples pockets. Same as some others, but... anyway it is an unrelated topic :-D

Anyway, thanks again, and I hope I have answered any questioned you might have had for why I do things the way I do.

ps I use to have my pc with seti only and set to the minimum. Found out that it wasn't always the best, since the project had many times been left dry, either due to connection, server issues, or other things.
