3 weeks without an update, not even a 'yeah we're continuing to work on it' in typical Boinc noncommunicative fashion. Oh well it's not much different than other projects out there. I've become accustomed to it.

Relax, everything's going to be just fine.

I find it hilarious that some people get so bent outta shape over a simple thread resurrection now and then. How 'bout another, lol, or better yet ... keep this one going!

Let's talk about the other projects, shall we?

Climate - the linux client is HOSED, the solution uncertain, and this after months of being told it's a hardware problem.

Predictor - pathetic lack of communication, or maybe the 2004 update on the main page wasn't a good enough clue?

Rosetta - the 1% bug from hell. Everyone's blue in the face talking about it. Not a pleasant thing to discover your remote boxen have been idle for weeks.

Einstein - thumbs up! The Aksofp optimizing is impressive.

SIMAP - looks ok, low points. Wish I spoke more German.

Seti - we're alone. Live with it.

Be aware there's still issues with stuck work units with Rosetta,
units which some people at first discounted as normal,
even with 1% progession after 10 hrs lol.

Everyone's got an opinion, right or wrong.

<blockquote><blockquote>Why do we need a post here to tell us what we can read on the home page?</blockquote>

Because there's always those who have nothing better to do.

I'm generally good for 250 - 300 points / day with Einstein. LHC & Predictor in the 180 - 220 category, the lowest of the boinc projects.

Could that person interrupt his/her vacation or terminate it, just to come here and prepare the next work, please?
thanks</blockquote>

LOL, if I were that person here's my answer: HELL NO.
10) Message boards : Number crunching : Win vs Linux Completion Times (Message 8922)
Posted 25 Jul 2005 by arcturus
Post:
Alright I've run under Linux for awhile and it's 5% - 15% slower depending on work unit with the longer units toward the 15% side. End of speculation.

Post:
Any differences in completion between Win and Linux. One optimized better than the other? I know with Einstein Linux takes nearly 2x as long.
