I am currently running a set of very important tests to try and
find the cause of a few numerical differences between different platforms
and executables. I could/would not do this usually but because of your efforts
during the Pentathlon I have a unique opportunity. Also keeps up the
workload and gives you all an opportunity to get credits.
These test are wzero with a quorum of 5.Thanks. Eric.

I have seen a bunch of these running on my rigs with a high priority, I was wondering why they had a higher priority than the other projects that were downloaded prior to these.

Thanks for the info.

Since I run vLHC X2 on all 6 of mine and Atlas and CMS-dev I can't run hundreds of these wzero's but I have been running them on my 8-core and got 57 of those of different lengths and completed 25 so far and as soon as those are finished I will grab another batch.

Looks like the BOINC Server loadav has risen quite a lot in the last few hours!
I notice too that a large number of wzero jobs I have seem to have been aborted by other volunteers, I hope it doesnt mess up the tests.

I had several big downloads and then pffft... nothing. Resetting project and updating to no avail. I was pushed out of the Pentathlon without recourse! :(

Well I am not submitting any more wzeros for the moment.
New work is real production. We are in the process of
producing new SixTrack executables with new physics including
hopefully MacOS. We shall of course try them on sixtracktest
first I shall start analysis of the wzero results soonest.
....and the LHC started full data taking today at 7Tev per beam.

I stopped by and picked up 75 tasks ( SixTrack v451.07 (sse2) )

Even saw the LHC mentioned here in the local news.

And I check this ones in a while https://op-webtools.web.cern.ch/op-webtools/vistar/vistars.php?usr=LHC
