I will stay. I made my comments to the low points and it will be addressed. That's OK. That is how things are evolving.
Just giving up on the first small problem? Never! Not me.

I know the Boinc Points are not really of interest. However, there should be no such big descrepancies between 11.000 and 47.0000 seconds beeing almost the same number of points.

Can this be adjusted a little bit?

We do have a new credit system ready which depends only on the computational characteristics of the sixtrack program. This will defeat any cheating with clock or any other way of statistics distortion - both, intentional or unitentional.

It was ready for introduction after the cheat episode last year. What prevented its introduction, is the wait for the update to the latest boinc server version, that was waiting for the verification of the executable, etc., etc.

I will decouple different dependencies and make the introduction of the new credit system the highest priority.

Thank you for making your opinion known. I appreciate the shake up.






Thanks Igor!
That is an acceptable explanation and I feel no longer Ignored. I feel I can continue crunching. :-)

Personally I joined LHC to crunch work for physics and not for credits.

As a former scientist, I want to know if the higgs boson exists or not, and if I can help the teams at LHC using our 3 computers, then it gives me immense satisfaction, to know that I have helped in my small way,to contribute to the eventual outcome of the project.

Credits are fun, but they really irrelevant to the science.

Errors do occur, cheaters and hacking unfortunately are a reality of modern day life.

The project is whats important, and getting that work crunched, for the scientists to evaluate.


And because this we just ignore that?
If they hack your bank account, it is ok when your bank ignores it? and you just pay the bills. Great.

I have a little bit different view to this. If someone is not trying everything possible to go against this then the business behind this is not serious.

Yes, credits are not that important. But anyway, I can not ignore the ignorance of the Project Managers.

As no one from the Project Managment is responding here I am now denying any work from LHC. I will crunch the ones already working but will kill all waiting ones.
If they do not take their project serious why should i?
