1) Message boards : News : Grid computing center (Message 5376)

Because of some participants who abused by multiplying clients which run only Grid computing center, workunits from those clients will be invalid. No hours will be counted.


I must be missing something..

As I see it, the only real problem is if you're running multiple sessions of WUprop on the same system, and counting the same work done twice.. regardless of which projects are running.. no need to pick out Grid Computing Center specifically. Running multiple sessions of any project should be getting more work done, and should be valid

On top of that, wouldn't WUprop only count the work done within that virtual machine? .. so everything done should count? .. right?

Correct me if I'm wrong.

I look at "cheating" as being both unethical and pointless. I would hope that most people here agree. I only hope that this project properly counts actual work being done and reports it accurately in a way that's meaningful and practical.

The Fourth is strong with this one! LOL

Ironically, I'm close to getting my fourth star. :-)

I removed WUProp today. Tired of seeing this ridiculous notice all the time in my BOINC.


May the fourth be with you on Star Wars Day!

Hi - I now have 20 projects over 100 hours - when do I get my 1st badge & star?


Good Job... now go for 250 hours each and change that bronze start to silver. (I just did yesterday!) .. and then another 20/100 hours for a second star.

Congratulations Brian, you now exist in the crunchy world of e-bling!


Yeah, thanks

funny part of it is that I've been a WUProp@Home member since 27 Jan 2011 .. I just didn't understand how this worked until recently.

I feel like Steve Martin when his character found his own name in the telephone book... "I'm a somebody!"
