Hello,
For the first time in a year I had a Work Unit (19615913) ! It took 15 minutes to complete. from 16:08:35 to 16:23:50.

The server task manager said it took 11.93 CPU seconds (!!!) to complete and granted me up to 0,05 credits !!!

I hope the quality of the work done is better than the credits counting.

Merry Xmas !

Hey.

you got the mentioned wu at 16:08:35 and it was reported! by your computer at 16:23:50 that doesn\'t mean that it took \"so long\" to crunch on it. the \"beams\" probably \"crashed\" into the \"wall\" while working on it. In your case after 11.93 seconds. and after that \"crash\" your computer prepared it for reporting. which was successful at 16:23:50

You are right, that could be a reason.
But the server says the crunch is a success.

Anyway, I am happy to crunch a WU after wainting so long.
Even for 0,05 credit ; it is better than 0 credit.

I feel sad that this european project is not able to become one of the most important project of participative computing science.

Maybe one day. Wait and see.

Bests.

Beams crashing into the collider\'s wall is a \"successful\" result as far as the project is concerned. They tend to learn as much (if not more) from failed simulations as from successful ones. The only results that will earn no credit are ones in which the crunching process itself fails for some reason; i.e. results marked as something other than \"SUCCESS\".

Anyway, I am happy to crunch a WU after wainting so long. Even for 0,05 credit ; it is better than 0 credit.


So say we all...

This post is slightly off thread, so I hope I will be forgiven for this.

So far, my 14 year old 233MMX has been able to complete work satisfactorily, but now it has received a rather long looking w3_weak3_collision_err_bb work unit.

It appears to be crunching at about 0.3% per hour, with a completion time of around 146 hours, and rising.

My question is: Will the deadline be strictly enforced, as there seems no chance that it will be finished in the time allowed?

I would happily finish the work unit if I thought I would receive credits for it.

If the deadline is to be enforced then I will have to abort it.

Could the deadline be increased for these longer work units?

Later.
A no-brainer really. I've aborted it and set NNT.
That's yet another project that my 233MMX can't do any more.
