I also get that this is Seb's project so he has the final say... However, despite my machine only being 4 cores, I have 125 instances of BOINC running. 1 of which runs Enigma, Goofy & WUProp, 124 of which currently just run Goofy.

I would love to put WUProp on the Goofy machines as well so I can track my hours (as my machine is legitimately crunching them. Yes, it possibly would make me look like I've done way more actual work than I have, but if I'm legitimately crunching the WUs (which you can see I am http://nci.goofyxgridathome.net/results.php?userid=24507&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=), why shouldn't I be able to log them on WUProp?

Even if you do what another user suggested and don't award stars for NCI projects or log them in a different table or something like that, I do feel it's needed to log the hours otherwise WUProp isn't getting an accurate image of how much work the projects are doing...

EDIT: When I say this, I mean that I would like to be allowed WUProp on ALL instances I run that are doing any form of work, whether that be NCI or CPU/GPU...

Excellent, thank you both!

I meant clients as in instances of BOINC... So I currently have 100 instances on my laptop each doing 2 Goofyxgrid tasks (200 tasks an hour @ 10 credits each = a nice tidy 2,000 credits an hour). I also thought that I would be allowed to add a WUProp WU to each of these instances to log the hours I'm doing, as I am legitimately completing the hours, but I guess it does make sense that this isn't the case...

Hi all,

I recently added BOINCTasks to my laptop so that I could easily add a few more clients on it (have about 10 now to run mainly NCI work). I'm thinking of adding more, but don't want to impact the work of the ones I already have - what's the maximum recommended amount of clients per PC?

Thank you.

Since the NCI Monkeys WUs returned a day or so ago, I've been running them alongside my Enigma@Home tasks on my laptop. Since then, I've submitted 2 WUProp WUs. My E@H hours show up on my stats with no problem, but it doesn't appear that I have any hours being added for my Monkeys V1 or V3 at the moment (I have no tasks from V2 or V4)...

Any ideas what's up?

Cheers,
Chris

Hi all,

Myself and 22 other teens from the UK that attended the 2016 HOBY UK Seminar (http://www.hoby.org/) and wish to continues our HOBY Journey by attending the HOBY of all HOBYs - The World Leadership Congress, or WLC (http://www.hoby.org/programs/world-leadership-congress/) which is based in Chicago, Illinois!

We won't be able to achieve this goal without donations, as we have to raise a total of £55,000 so please give what you can, whether it be money, time, support or spreading the word of our cause.

We are all hoping to enhance our leadership skills throughout our journey as well as learning more about the skills and importance of giving back to the local, regional, national and international communities. We would also love to experience the different cultures of the worldwide HOBY family and learn about life in each country!

Thank you for helping us along our journey!

I'm the same, noderaser - it does sound too good to be true... I'm more about Bitcoins instead (because I know they are worth something)...

No, I haven't, but nobody seems to know what to do on their forum - it's a bit confusing, but thanks for your help, noderaser

Hi, Team GRIDCOIN - I like the sound of the idea you guys are trying to use, but I have tried it on several occasions and it hasn't worked for me... Is there any way for you guys to get in touch with BOINC and see if you can fully integrate it in to the system (as in you download BOINC and then you can create a GRIDCOIN Wallet for payouts there)?

If you have any information, please let me know - thanks for your help,
From Chris.

2 things:
1. Yay! Multiple badges are here! Congrats on your 3, Ste\/e!

2. The idea of having the total computing hours on the stats site is ideal - it would please everybody, Coleslaw, for example:
People like you, who think it is pointless, wouldn't need to show the badge, whereas people like me and Khali would be able to show it if we chose. It would also make the project more well known - people would look at their signature page and see "Total Hours (WUProp)", then people would think "hmm I want to show that badge - I'll go and join the project...

Basically, it's a win-win situation.

Coleslaw, Seb doesn't need to make a new badge on here for total run time, but it would be nice to be able to have it on http://signature.statseb.fr/ here:

https://eternalparadox14.files.wordpress.com/2015/03/stats-site.png

And therefore, it is an optional feature.

Yes, we all saw what Seb said about new badges. Aside from me explaining what I meant in my original post in this thread I don't think we are talking about that any more. The conversation has moved onto discussing tracking hours and what projects actually do so. So evidently some of us don't find the discussion pointless.


Agreed.
