Message 39693 - Posted: 23 Aug 2019, 8:04:56 UTC

After various problems and some major heart surgery I am back in business.
I shall be confining myself to writing THE paper on result reproducibility,
but still keeping an eye on LHC@home and in particular on invalid results
or validation failures. My (young :-) colleagues have done a fantastic job
on SixTrack during my absence. It is now almost Fortran 2008, much more
modular and a great deal of new functionality. We are exploring the
possibility of performing ten million turns, but with the work split into batches
of say one hundred thousand turns. There is a big question here about the
amount of network activity required, as against the length of the task.
That's it for now, more news in the SixTrack thread whenever. Eric

WELCOME BACK

Funny thing but the last few days I was thinking about emailing you to see how things were going.
At least you did get to post this (remember if you ever have that particular problem again just email it to me and I will post it for you)

There has been a lot of Sixtracks lately (but for some reason they don't seem to want to make the 5200 mile trip to my pc's lately)
Hope your rebuild gives you another 30 years (I got 20 out of mine so far)

Dear All, thank you for your messages and for all the encouragement.
As I said, I shall be at the CERN Open Days, 14th and 15th September,
and hope to make or renew some personal contacts. In the meantime,
I am hoping IT can resolve the database issues as we have lots of work
to run. Eric
