2 or 3 days ago I crunched SixTrack tasks, but now I'm getting the "No tasks are available for SixTrack. Virtualbox is not installed" message. I'm not signed for the other projects and I never had Virtualbox.

Can you add more information in the description of each task? For example, a link to the homepage of the research team that submited the task would be nice. That way we would know what we are computing.

Nice! We are at last approaching restart. It's also nice to see that we are computing FCC WUs now.

Very happy new year, Eric!

This is the first BOINC project I ran (many years ago, with other user name) and I hope it will continue many years!

Usually the user of the day is someone that has modified his profile. If nobody modified his profile, it's picked at random. If you want to become user of the day, simple update your profile.

Post:
The Zooniverse project team has launched a citizen scientists initiative to search through ATLAS data. Here is their introduction:


Hey there,
Today we launched our latest citizen science project, and it's a real beauty!

On Higgs Hunters we need you to look through data from the ATLAS experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider, where protons are smashed together at one billion kilometres per hour in order to create new particles and give us a better understanding of the building blocks that make up our Universe.

Specifically we are asking you to search through roughly 90,000 images from the ATLAS detector for tiny sub-atomic explosions caused when a Higgs boson 'dies', which some scientists think could generate a new kind of particle, previously undetected.

Begin your search for new and exciting particles now at http://www.higgshunters.org

Thanks for your continued help and support,

Grant & the Zooniverse Team

Post:
CERN today launched its Open Data Portal where data from real collision events, produced by experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will for the first time be made openly available to all. It is expected that these data will be of high value for the research community, and also be used for education purposes.

How often does SixTrack checkpoint?


It depends on your settings.

If you refer to disk writing instead (not all disk writing is due to checkpointing), in my Linux boxes it writes every 10 seconds or so (too much, IMO).

There is a conference today about HL-LHC, so probably the scientists are busy with their presentations.

The VM is a recurrent topic on LHC@home. It seems that there are many people here that can't / don't want to use virtualbox. Also virtualbox will not remove problems between different architectures (differences in computed values) and their maintenance.

Yes, the code is available. You are free to modify it if you have the expertise to do so.
