Hi there, I've just put a handfull of work units (approx 50) on the LHC@HOME server to check that all is well before we get production jobs on here.

Bye for now

The Applications page says that the applications are from 2005. Is this the case or have they been updated ??
Can't wait for more work just attached a couple of PC's and I will try and fix up my hosts.

The current applications are from 2005, there has been talk among the users who generate the jobs of updating the application but that is in there hands and probably won't make much difference to what you as volunteers see (except MAYBE we'll get some Mac support).

So we'll keep on keeping on with the current application till the users want an upgrade.

with only 56 WU's issued today, I'll bet that <5 hosts got them all..

More like 2-3 hosts.

You can tell as they're being completed VERY slowly.

Is this really a valid test, as it's such a small subset of the user base.

Maybe issue 50,000 OLD WU's and run the system thru it's paces before new data is crunched? That might almost be a valid test.. 50 sure isn't!
