Post:
You can attach to another project so as to do meaningful work while there is no work from LHC. One of the reasons BOINC was invented was to make it easy to switch between projects when one is down for whatever reason.

7) Questions and Answers : Windows : Server can't open database (Message 4906)
Posted 5 Nov 2004 by Profile verstapp
Post:
This is a server problem - its overloaded with work at the moment and can't respond to your request. This happens quite often on LHC, and that's when the server is UP (its often down). Don't worry about it, it'll recover eventually. I often find that the server, having been offline for a day or so, suddenly comes good about 9am Swiss time, when someone arrives at work, sees a problem, and reboots it.

9) Message boards : LHC@home Science : Does 'protwelve' WU refer to tuning of magnet twelve? (Message 4643)

Post:
A tutorial on what we're actually doing here would be welcome - if such already exists then please include a URL with your flames - for all I know we could be trying to guess Bill Gates' M/C #. Part of the tutorial should include an explanation of WU names, ie the difference between *proseven*...*protwelve*. I already know that the difference between the *pro* and the *tunescan* is that the pros only do 10,000 circuits and the *tunescan*s do 1,000,000 but more detail would be welcome.

Well I don't have to scroll my screen horizontally in order to see it all so its OK by me.

They seem to run/crash in the same time as each other - the only difference appears to be in the name.

Sounds like XP. :)
I skipped 4.12 and went straight to 4.13, which is working OK so far.

Thanks, thor.

EDIT: Is there some kind of sign-in procedure? All I got was a box with headings, no stats.

EDIT II: Thanks again. It helps if I use the right img src.

More confusing - it now says

Up, low on work

(low on work != out of work) ??
So, is this an improvement or not?
I haven't received any new WUs yet.

18) Message boards : Number crunching : weird stats of a computer (Message 3187)
Posted 4 Oct 2004 by Profile verstapp
Post:
I am *guessing* that the stats are considerably screwed up due to the database problems. And also due to the lack of work - only my slowest PC is crunching LHC data at the moment, the other 3 have finished their LHC WUs and switched back to CPDN due to a lack of LHC work to do.

In other words, Barker, you want a 'classic' CPDN board.
I prefer it too, though I am willing to put up with BOINC-style boards for non-CPDN projects.
