WCG has a new sub project called - Microbiome Immunity Project!

Run time hours are not affected here by the projects doing backups/losses/etc... They are collected by the WUProp application and tallied here. If it were points being listed on a stats site, then yes that could change things. But the run time hours collected here not so much.

Unfortunately the one system on my list without a sensor was given away a long time ago but allowed to leave BOINC on it. However, those projects were manually added a very long time ago and unable to be pulled with BAM!. So, are you saying that host was responsible for the loss of 20k hours on both those QCN projects?

I had quite a few hours pulled as well. And they were not from multi-clients as suggested by the admin during his latest crusade. The badges hold little merit these days.

yeah... I just saw a couple of the QCN applications lose ~ 22K hours. I haven't ran them a lot for a long time but I have multiple Android devices that did return valid work. I'm wondering why it was that amount of hours that was chosen... For what it is worth, I still run QCN even without it giving credits. This project is turning into a biased joke in my eyes.

Dirk, I am agreeing that they should be merged and not split. I was using a bit of sarcasm about the current banter about not merging goofy/GCC and LHC applications.

CSG had all of its apps merged with the former independent projects, and so these complainers should have complained back then.

I guess we better go back in time and split CSG from Wildlife, Subsetsum, and DNA...

I see no real problem with this merger. For accuracy sake, it should be merged due to being the same app from the same admin with the same goals.

The obvious answer is that they think people are using this listing to identify which Pentathlon projects they are focusing on and what they are "bunkering". More than likely will return within a few weeks.

Bill... vLHC has been running CMS-dev work for a while. vLHC is probably the best running of all the virtualbox projects right now and has probably been the largest contributor to integrating with BOINC. It wasn't until recently that CMS-dev announced that they were transitioning entirely soon. And I believe that vLHC limits it to 2 work units per host by default.

Reading this thread reminded me how little CPU horsepower I have compared to the "big guys"! :-(

Still, joined 1 week ago, got first little puny star in 7 days someodd hours. Will eventually get a second star thanks to Primegrid (third star WAY out there, I only run 20 projects, so just over 40 apps showing up) but that first star is going to take a while to change colors anyway.

Project is VERY useful for keeping track of what my hosts are doing - I love it! I just have to keep myself on track working on my original goals, which are world-position within chosen projects, and not get off topic and start badge-chasing! :-/ Addictive!



Bill,

You should consider running the NCI projects. You have some OSX machines so if any of them are MacBooks you can run all 8 Quake Catcher projects plus the 2 goofyxgrid apps (on Win). After a month they might well be your big earners, hours wise. Note that some of the QCN projects don't award credits but that doesn't matter here.

Three years in and all 8 QCN projects are > 30,000 hrs for me. I dont pay much attention to them and sometimes I dont even run them.

Have fun!

Steve

To be fair, you can run all 8 QCN projects even without the sensors or accelerometers. The apps won't do anything but will still give the app hours...


Hi, can you list the 8 QCN projects please? I'm interested in running them too
