Heres a few Projects Missed so far ( and maybe why )

ha ha looks like i whine alot. I'v had no problems with Tampaku (not just saying that because i'v been their uotd 13 times)

VTU Xtrem & Prime Grid I'v had no problems with either
and Docking is too new to tell

* Presently, Proteins@home doesn't support Linux but in the future, they will do.
Officially, the project supports (only) XP but the application runs without problem also on Win2k and NT ; a little more difficult under Win9x/ME.
** Predictor has no work and nobody knows how long the offline period will be.

Why does everybody need to rant before going? If you aren't comfortable with the project, and you really think you need to go, well just go! No need to post about it.

Why ? maybe because people are humans.

Hey there River~~

You seem quite up to date on all the different programs out there, maybe you could answer a couple of questions that I have ---

Has the ROSETTA program fixed their software where it will work well with others? I seem to remember a while back, they had major problems with starting and stopping in a shared environment.

I notice on your listing the program "WCG" -- what can you tell us about it, and what is the URL for the site? The same question goes for "LEIDEN", which I suspect probably has a lot to do with electrical engineering research ....


Leiden Classical
World Community Grid

Posted 18 Nov 2006 by Profile Nightbird
interesting question - good awnser.
Could you place this on a more obviouse place at the homepage? I guess many users have the same question. And two sentences well hidden under "technical callenges" are not enough information to cure curiuos spirits.

I wondered myself several times about why nothing seems to happen at the project and didn't even find really helpful information here in the discussion board (By the way - the FAQ-link doesn't work).
The newsboard is outdated and one can easily get the impression the last thing that happened in that project was a computer crash.
Contrary to other users who wrote in the forum I don't mind having a project on standby, waiting for work most of the time - it's not the only boinc project. But I need to know if the project still works and why I am on standby.

Think about this: A computer grid consisting of 6000 computer needs technical maintenance. But this grid also consists of 6000 computer owners who are willing to donate their CPU time to you (which is and at the end of the day real money if you take into account that energy consumption of newer CPU depends on the workload). They also need some "maintenance" if you don't want your grid to break into pieces sooner or later.
Just tell us whenever new work was sent out in the news board and maybe if new work is on the way. Just to let us know we are still needed.

Some news or updates from the admin. on how is going this project would be a good idea.

Ehm, i would say :
With LHC, you need to run an other project (a fact known since ... always).
Do like you wish/like ; you have the choice, and... more 30 projects from alpha status to full production status ! Attach, try, test, you like it ? good ; you don't like it, detach.
Keep an eye on the new and often little projects. They will try also to give you a very good support and to have a good communication with you.

That would be a good thing if the LHC team fixed also this message that i got trying to read a thread.

How about adding a link to the server status page, http://lhcathome.cern.ch/server_status.php in the main page?

Would be also useful and that would not kill the project..

Posted 10 Jun 2006 by Profile Nightbird
Or you could get Boinc Debt Viewer . It has a feature that allows your to reset your debts with the click of a button.

That utility sure does simplify that process. It's kinda cool for those who need it. :)

It only works under XP.

Same guy, same propaganda (proselytism or spam)
A former thread from this guy has already been removed from different places
(Einstein, QMC...) a few weeks ago.
I won't be surprised to see it somewhere else in DC forum.

Mais au moins, en la tartiflette nous croyons. ;)
C'est excellent ! "grin"

nothing serious : cern.ch is missing ;)

it would need to be corrected in the news...

You're wrong to stop.

LHC@Home models are the hardest probably to get validated because of the accuracy requirements.

accuracy requirements ? What are you thinking ?

<blockquote><blockquote>and many will switch</blockquote>
Many have already switched, as evidenced by the multitude of threads started about this one topic.</blockquote>
Others will not switch also.
Me, sure ; i'm using the CC 4.32 and i'm happy with it.

Anyway, i'm sure that all the servers of all projects will be upgraded... sooner or later...no choice.

<blockquote>wjun4B_v6s4hhpac_mqx__9__64.2914_59.3077__6_8__6__10_1_sixvf_boinc12302_1 is the unit I am currently processing.
What does the unit name signify? (this question could have been asked before, but I haven't found it in the forum. sorry if its a repeat)

Thanks in advance.

Robert Laughlin
yes, what's the meaning ? ;)
