1) Questions and Answers : Windows : when more work will be coming? (Message 21301)
Posted 10 Mar 2009 by Profile Van Durrett
Post:
The administrators have stated that they are not planning on having any of the data generated by the LHC crunched through LHC@Home, due to the download size and OS requirements. They may have other projects run through CERN available at some point.
This was a bug in the server code. It was fixed sometime ago, but admin haven\\\'t updated the code used by this project yet.

Regards

Michael

I see, thanks. So is there no hope for this project to become a full fledged distributed computing project?

Usually we find out there is more work by seeing it in our queues.

Is there any other way to know? An ETA of any kind? The people who administer this program I\'m sure have some idea of when stuff might be coming down the pipelines.

There isn\'t any way to know I\'m afraid. The work is added by the scientists when they need it done, which could be a day away, a week, a month or longer. The project administrators have previously said that they don\'t have any prior knowledge of when the work will be submitted, as it is an automated process which doesn\'t require any input from them.

Hope this helps

Michael

Thank you. I\'m hoping/assuming that when the LHC starts up in full later this year it\'ll generate some more work, lots more. It may be of a different nature though.
4) Message boards : Number crunching : WUs returning zero credit despite successful completion (Message 21267)

I don\\\'t know if this has been addressed before but I recently successfully computed a work unit and received zero credit for it. On the WU page it lists ~10 other hosts that tried to compute it but resulted in a \\\"client error.\\\" What\\\'s up with this? Is my aging 2.8ghz P4 more capable than other computers?!

5) Questions and Answers : Wish list : Realistic Screensaver (Message 21257)
Posted 25 Feb 2009 by Profile Van Durrett
Post:
I\'m with the other two guys, the screensaver doesn\'t even really represent what the WU is doing. Don\'t get me wrong, it\'s cool as hell, but more information on what is actually being done/calculated/analyzed.

I read somewhere that a different screensaver is/was being developed and I was wondering on the status of that side project.

It would be nice if a note about this was put on the front page. I signed up and could not figure out what was wrong until I checked the server status.
