Whoa! 30K or so work units, and I didn't even get one.

Looks like my computer is a little slow on the draw!


they were not even peanuts... 15 min runtime on a 2.6 GHz P4 per WU....

I'm getting really upset about all of this now.

10.000 work units... that's no life sign, dear admins. That's a burp!

How about a real life sign?

Neasan, should we start a "let's collect money so we can buy valium for the members that only want stats" thread here?


Valium Over Talent :-D


Arguably, though, looking at how long the move takes, it seems they either travelled and transported everything by foot, or they're getting their entire TeraByte Storage transferred to the UK via 56k.

Otherwise, it should be a matter of days, not months...


You do know we are doing a hell of a lot more than just copying the old server's files on to a new one right? If we did that nothing would get fixed and it would be pointless.

I know this is all taking a long time for your perspective but while we have a lot more time to dedicate to this than the guys at CERN did we do occasionally have to do other work. We aren't employed to work on LHC@home alone we have other concerns.


@Anyone who understands Neasan and feels like he's patient enough to let them do what they think they have to do, to have it done right, scream "HERE"

when will LHC ever export stats again.....if ever?


not in your lifetime!

I think Neasan should give us a warning before exporting Stats. Some members here are so desperately waiting for the stats export, they might suffer a heartattack when they finally find their stats being exported.

Neasan, should we start a "let's collect money so we can buy valium for the members that only want stats" thread here?

Here comes a newbie question:

My Dell Dimension uses this processor:
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+ [x86 Family 15 Model 75 Stepping 2]

But my version of Windows XP Pro is the common 32-bit version. Can a native 64-bit Application run on my machine? What about a 32-bit application that can still take advantage of my 64-bit chip? I'm hoping that my pricey chip isn't going to waste...




Quick answer: NO.
Long answer: If your OS doesn't support 64-Bit, it won't let 64-Bit Applications run. Don't worry about that pricey chip. ALL Boinc Projects have 32 bit Applications. Some Apps have been optimized to utilize extra functions like MMX or SSE (and/or SSE2/3).

Your CPU will do just fine and help whatever projects you choose to join.

Sincerely,

Sysfried

Thanks to the new Admins for their recon' of Chrulle and Ben, and the load of Info.

Btw, did anyone see the "test 1 test 2 test" lines on the frontpage a few min before they posted their big News post?

Funny! ;-)

I wouldn't bother too much. LHC needs 3 valid results. With one result claiming way too much, the granted results are lower. The "cheat" client doesn't do any good here. It doesn't hurt either. No need to worry.

Regards,

Sysfried

If you look through his results you will see there are instances where he gets in a quorum with another overclaimer and the high claims are awarded. So while a quorum does stop most of it, it does not stop all of it. And no I'm not bothered by the credits, I'm just bothered by the choices people make in life.

Steve


Well, I officially admit that I did use the "cheat client" as well. While I've re-installed most of my machines, I think I've upgraded my hosts to the regular client.

My 2 cents about the credits @ lhc... if a high claimed credit causes the granted credit to rise, the other participants also gain from this, because their granted credit is above the claimed.

Sysfried

No WU s left for normal users.
Cant tere be a limit on seconds collected per pc.



As of right now, there still is work available... And it has been for more than 5 hours... Where is the problem?

There is a 500 WU's per cpu & Deadline limit which won't let people download 10.000 wu's.....

I'm using BOINC client version 5.7.5.

looks good to me...
No clue other than suggesting the 5.8.0 client: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_5.8.0_windows_intelx86.exe

Have you tried to move some data off the partition and check what boinc does?

Appologies accepted Sysfried,

I'm working in computer science too and I known what are you talking about.

Never mind, I understand that admins (you are an admin, isn't you?) are very occupied and the next time will find better in the forum posts.

Only one another thing, the FAQ link (http://lhcathome.cern.ch/FAQ.html) is broken.

Best regards.


Dear Aroigoli.

No, I'm not an admin. At least not with the LHC project. :-)

The FAQ would indeed help. I can't recall who it was, but we did have some kind of wiki for LHC... anyone remember that?

Regards,

Sysfried
