MacOS executable is working, for some at least.
I have queued 500,000 jobs, intensity scan,
while I clear the decks. Many thanks for all the
suggestions and comments on (very) long jobs.

At the time the application (Intel 64-bit Mac os 10.5 - 444.02) on my system does not work, since I have an iMac 27 "with 10.7.4 ... and rightly so by mistake.'m Preparing another Mac where currently running 10.6.8, which should be the right environment for the current compilation, because this is still the right code to execute the PPC.
From 10.7.0 onwards is no longer possible!
To compile SixTrack in a 64bit version has intel we need the compiler 10.6.0.
So is also the incorrect description follows of the application.

Let me give you my cheering because you have taken the initiative to create a version for the Mac .... finally.
If in the future there will also be some graphics, I'll be super happy.

Al momento l'applicazione ( Intel 64-bit Mac os 10.5 - 444.02 ) sul mio sistema non viene eseguita , visto che dispongo di un iMac 27" con 10.7.4 ... e giustamente da errore. Sto preparando un altro Mac dove attualmente gira 10.6.8 , che dovrebbe essere l'ambiente adatto per l'attuale compilazione , perchè è ancora presente il codice adatto per eseguire le istruzioni PPC .
Dal 10.7.0 in poi non è più possibile !
Per compilare SixTrack in una versione ha 64Bit intel ci vuole il compilatore del 10.6.0 .
Dunque è errata anche la discrizione della applicazione .

Vi faccio il mio tifo perchè avete preso l'iniziativa di creare una versione anche per Mac .... finalmente.
Se in futuro ci sarà anche un pò di grafica , sarò super contento.

Not sure what "really long" means but I'm seeing 10~15 hours Remaining time on a number of jobs.

Well there haven't been very many but I have got a couple of them and I know one is running right now that is approx. 50+ hour task

Of course I still have one pending from the original ones 3 weeks ago.

But most of mine lately are the average 5hr version.

I just try to watch these long ones so they will be turned in before they are due.

I need to do that because at the same time 6 of my hosts run 2-core T4T's and a pair of Einstein Cuda's along with these LHC's

It looks like the jobs that I had that were 10~15 hours aren't really that long. I was out of the house for about 4 hours and when I just checked suddenly these same jobs have only 2~3 hours Remaining.

'Really long' means something more like the three days I spent on task 6242534!

I had 4 jobs show up, 3 of 147 hours and 1 of 250 hrs, but hacking away at maximum and real time should be about 40% of estimated. So glad that I have had at least a week plus now of jobs for CERN. ABOUT Time you guys loaded us up.

SETI and rest are taking a back seat, which is fine with me. Here in Brazil you guys are getting a lot of attention on the news (surpise to me really) and seems discovery channel of latin america now passing a lot about what you are doing, which is great!

Eric, and the others, keep feeding us numbers to crunch. My computer has a smile on its face, my wife for sure not, when the eletric bill comes as I am running 15% over clock (3.6 ghz now) that you finally are feeding us numbers.

You have no idea how good that is. Keep it coming, and hope you get some good results to look at. Your project has to do it, and I am an American 28 years in Brazil. So Brazilian by heart. Wish I could treat all you in IT to a real BBQ, Brazilian style. Starts at 1 or 2 pm Saturday, and goes until some time after sun rises up on Sunday. Social event, more than eating.
