I think that the devs here at LHC should put a notice like this:

"Recommended version for running the project solo. For running multiple projects download from BOINC DOWNLOAD PAGE."

Regarding WU, If I remember correctly, here at LHC the WU generation works like this:

CERN Scientists give WU to LHC team; LHC team gives them to Us; LHC team receives results and gives them to CERN Scientist. Then they Analyse/Process them and only after this new WU are generated.

So while the results are being analysed/processed to later generate more WU, the project has no work.

Last summer I always knew when BOINC was crunching LHC. The processor fan always got to maximum speed :-P
Meanwhile I got a new copper cooler and hope in the summer the fans don't go to maximum speed :-)

Your BOINC was still trying to download the Sixtrack 4.63 (the one that won't work with BOINC 4.2x). The Sixtrack 4.64 will probably only come with the WU they said they were releasing today.

The latest server code already predicts turnaround time (see in your hosts the "Average turnaround time"). The people developing BOINC is discussing what to do with it. At Einstein@home they were thinking of doing something with it (because they only have a 7 day deadline), but David Anderson (BOINC "Big Boss") convinced them not to do anything for now.
26) Message boards : Number crunching : Boinc CC version 4.23 (Message 5936)
Posted 22 Feb 2005 by Professor Desty Nova
Rom Walton has been bug fixing BOINC since version 4.20 for public release (they hoppe in March). In principle there won't be new features, it's mainly bug hunt. BOINC 4.2x works different from BOINC 4.1x, and the installer is new, so going from 4.1x to 4.2x, it's necessary to uninstall 4.1x first.

BOINC 4.22 is more recent than BOINC 4.66. And in BOINC 4.22 they changed it's behaviour to the title of this thread. So LHC will have to change it's application to work with BOINC 4.2x, before it's officially lauched. The only project that has done it to my knowledge was Seti@home (and maybe Einstein@home).

After noticing those errors with the signing key, and detaching/ trying to reatach several times, I finally got several WU :-))))
29) Message boards : Number crunching : Boinc 4.19 Released (Message 5624)
Posted 26 Jan 2005 by Professor Desty Nova
BOINC 4.19 is now the Official Release.

Quote from BOINC_projects Mailing list:

This is a bug fix release of the 4.13 source base and contains the following
bug fixes:

1. File upload handling, this affects all projects.
2. File download handling, this affects all projects.
3. CPU and Model Identification code update on Windows, this affects any
projects using homogeneous redundancy, namely Predictor at Home
4. Execute benchmarks before actually attempting to start any applications,
this affects all projects.
5. Increase the buffer for command lines, this affects Einstein at Home.
6. Escape http and socks proxy user information for those who have special
characters in either their username or password, this affects all projects.
7. Fix the special cases where the client was ignoring the server's request
to delay the next RPC to a specific date and time, this affects all

Posted 24 Jan 2005 by Professor Desty Nova
A new BOINC Manager (4.17) is coming soon (edit: 4.18). I hope we don't have many problems.

From the BOINC_dev Mailing List:

We have released what we believe is going to be a build good enough for public release.

Let us know if there is anything wrong, if not, we'll be releasing soon.

Actually it's the windows client benchmark code that is overoptomized. This is being fixed in the coming BOINC 4.5x.

Just curious. Are the credits awarded like in SETI@HOME. The middle value of 3 WU?

I don't know if it's the same error, but I have at leats two pending results that were sent to 14 and 12 diferent hosts :-P
