1) Message boards : Number crunching : Badge for Alpha Tester Anonymous (ATA) (Message 6172)
Posted 15 Jun 2018 by Profile DoctorNow
Hehe, really nice idea and would be of course possible.
Stats are always given out with the account id of the user.
I guess according to the amount of projects it would be even possible to give that out in different states: for example bronze for 10 ATAs, silver for 50, gold for 100 etc.
Alas, there are now a lot of projects which are no more and their stats are probably lost, this idea comes a bit late.
I'm pretty sure some people (including me) would have a high level badge of it when this would have been introduced in the early years of WUProp... ;-)

What are the odds on having only 4 Box's running & 2 of them have a RNA Wu on then as rare as RNA Wu's are ... :D

36 Day's on 1 Wu & just 1 Day on the second RNA Wu ...

Since I know this feeling: ;-)
Yeah, very small chances on that indeed, but check the tasks on how many results are already given out in errors on your earlier wingmen.
Pretty sure that these are very long lasting tasks which errored out sooner or later on everyone.

271 Attic Proxy Project The Attic Proxy 5,654.00 23.67

Somebody did PM me asking about the Project, I just told them as far as I knew the Project had shut down a long time ago ...

Lucky one, as one with a farm you obviously could get work there while others like me probably not. I don't even have the project in my apps list...
The Wiki of my team's page says the URL was http://mishra.lpds.sztaki.hu/atticproxy/, but obviously there's nothing there at the moment.
Also I don't even have it in my Excel sheet project list so it somehow must have slipped through my view which is unusual but in 2012 (where it seems to have existed) I wasn't yet such a sharp app hunter. ;-)
Really wondering why this is popping up now over at the Free-DCs missing app page, maybe gets revived under another URL?

That's a very old project which never really got to run as far as I know.

Hehe great, thanks for that!
Somehow that was just too obvious. Some projects use a BOINC subdirectory as well.

Well, this is a bit strange to me.
The new apps-thread some hours ago said:
"The application Distributed Hardware Evolution Island from project Distributed Hardware Evolution Project is active".
I searched for the project and found it pretty quickly, URL seems to be: http://dhep.ga/
However, the whole site doesn't mention BOINC wherever I look and is speaking about downloading an own client. Adding the URL to BOINC obviously doesn't work and there is no possibility of account creation on the site itself.
So how come that WUProp is detecting it and even counting over 60 work units over at the active projects page of the last 24 hours?
Does anyone knows more about it (who's already running it probably)?

Thanks Conan.
I managed to reach another upgrade yesterday with the 10th star ruby. :-)

<-- A major upgrade for me from my point of view:
Finally gathered a third green star for 60 apps with 2.500 hours. ;-)

A new app over on Universe@Home appeared:
Black Hole Database
Available for Win and Linux (64-Bit) at the moment.

Please tell me what "science" Grid Computing Center/Goofyx is doing?

Trying to find out if a monkey can type "Christmas" (app V2/V4) and how long it will take? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinite_monkey_theorem
Please!
Even if I'm also running this project for badges, I wouldn't define it as Science.

If you didn't understand it completely:
When you readed the article then you must have stumbled over the word "probability". The whole thing is just a very huge probability calculation, and that is a part of statistics/stochastics. Statistics itself is a part of Mathematics, which is a science.
Since GoofyXGrid isn't part of GCC anymore: I don't know what GCC does at the moment, but according to the results pages here there are currently no apps registered from GCC - so either there isn't any project/app running at GCC or no one which runs apps from it has also WUProp running.
Although I remember they wanted to start a mining app for Bitcoins 'n stuff, but that didn't even come out of development.

Edit:
I tried the GCC URL known to me, but it looks like GCC isn't even active anymore. Although it could be my URL is outdated, who knows?

and especially he announced us a few days ago that he had stoped maintaining WUProp because of this !

Oh well, that's bad to hear that he stopped doing the project... :-O
Also, that explains why some things which came up over the days aren't done anymore - like correcting the Einstein app etc.
I interpreted his last post here as if GCC isn't supported anymore for WUProp, which was the thread originally about. Looks like this was wrong then, I didn't read everything here, but as I checked it now, the whole problem seems way more complicated...
But if he stops with WUProp, who's going to do that here then? It's like abandoning the whole project and then it's useless for everyone when some things like adding apps etc. aren't done anymore.
I don't want this project to be gone also, if I think about it, it's the only thing why I still run BOINC at all... ;-)

<-- Today my badges upgraded to the 17th star.
That took around almost 6 months now, before 5. New apps are getting more rare these days...

Hm, well thanx again for the advice from both of you.
However, the URL (and the complete page) looks different from what I remember but since it's a while I visited there Bok has probably upgraded it.

Also, I'm wondering that the app from nanohub.org (boinc2docker) is still not in the apps list, although the project is already online since the start of 2017. The project released sporadically work at beginning, stopped then and resumed it in the last one to two months. I've crunched a few work units until then but the hours are (of course) not showing up yet because it's not added yet...

*BUMP*

When will this app and project be added?
https://boinc.nanohub.org/nanoHUB_at_home/

Bok has created a new listing which can help you find apps to run, you have to allow the data export so he can gather information for you.

Seems I lost the URL to Bok's list, I didn't bookmark it and accidentally my FF didn't restored it the last time it crashed.
Normally it wouldn't be really necessary to me, but can someone tell me the URL again? Thanx in advance!

Should we expect to see the GCC times and stat's removed from WuProp soon ?

I guess that wouldn't be a big loss.
As far as I can see the only remaining app from GCC is the XMR Miner (GPU) app, and there never was much work for this app as far as I was aware, I could manage to get a few minutes some months ago but since then the app is red and it doesn't seem they want to continue the development. Others could have more hours here but I highly doubt someone managed to make a star with it.
Oh, btw Sebastian, a monkey-app from GCC is still in my account, so the change to GoofyXGrid was not fully correct:
399 Grid computing center Monkeys v2 (CPU) - Seeker/1 seed 0.00 0.00

17) Message boards : Number crunching : Please remove "CompositeGrid" from your database (Message 5741)
Posted 11 Nov 2017 by Profile DoctorNow
Well, I just found out that some tasks my comps did run from CompositeGrid were finally zeroed out here.
I can't describe it in english words how angry I am about this now.
399 CompositeGrid PPS-Mega (LLR) 0.00 -3.17
400 CompositeGrid The Riesel Problem (LLR) 0.00 -7.20
396 CompositeGrid The Riesel Problem (Sieve) 0.00 -23.07
397 CompositeGrid PPS (Sieve) 0.00 -27.30
401 CompositeGrid Woodall (LLR) 0.00 -34.50
398 CompositeGrid Cullen (LLR) 0.00 -34.73
404 CompositeGrid Prime Sierpinski Problem (LLR) 0.00 -34.83
405 CompositeGrid Genefer 22 0.00 -101.98
402 CompositeGrid 321 (LLR) 0.00 -139.73
395 CompositeGrid AP27 Search 0.00 -145.00
403 CompositeGrid Seventeen or Bust 0.00 -458.70
To give my 2 cents to it it is just absurd to nullify them after almost one and a half year. Either just remove it completely or let it like it is. Negative hour entries are just stupid...

From my point of view, Michael Goetz made a mistake from the very beginning as he just let the whole server open to the "accounts" from PrimeGrid which are more or less tied to CompositeGrid. I'm sure it would have been possible to just block access when he just doesn't wanted anyone to run it.
It is ignorant, arrogant and a kind of dictator- and censorship then to say, that hours earned here at WUProp should be removed.
I don't know how much people in total did test tasks from the project but probably not very many. To refer to the start post coming with the reason of global warming is just ridiculous because the contribution due to running CompositeGrid is probably as tiny as an amoeba is in comparison to a blue whale, if not even smaller. No one can really measure that.
And electricity bills are just everyone's own decision. If it were for that, I wouldn't even do BOINC anymore since long ago.

If a project isn't a open Project then I think it should be completely removed from the WuProp data base as Michael Goetz requested some time ago.

I thought everyone attached to PrimeGrid could actually do CompositeGrid since they have the same accounts, or not? Maybe that changed, don't know.
So it WAS an "open" project somehow. As an ATA I always liked to test stuff to help project people, but if we as test users are not desired and more or less "hardly" earned hours here are not "honored" or allowed for us testers then that's it. I'm detaching my clients from there now.

CSG has just launched a new app named
EXACT Batch Norm With Scaled FMP CNN Trainer

Edit:
LOL, heck, I need to update my FF first. I just saw that the app appeared in the new app thread three minutes before... :D

And a new app over on yoyo@Home went to life:
Perfect Cuboids
Looks like this is also still a test app (which needs the allowance of the user to run).

Edit:
Oops, sorry, looks like this already appeared in the new/intermittent apps-thread. ;-)

New app on Sourcefinder/duchamp:
Sofia Sourcefinder
It's a beta app and you need to opt in test apps in your account if you want to run it (and it's a VBox-app).
