nobody knew how everything would shake out at GCC.

Not sure what you mean here. Goofy made it abundantly clear that he was moving everything to GCC and indeed he did. Pretty sure that meets the definition of "knowing how things will shake out"

I'm fine with any merger so long as the "system" is consistent. Goofyxgrid moved to GCC so it would be consistent to lump hours together.

The one that confuses me is WCC Beta (see thread passim)

As one that has lost a couple of what few stars I have, I completely agree with the app mergers. We all know that the apps are the same regardless of project name changes, mergers, etc., and a true representation of our contribution is what should be sought. Otherwise, an "ingenious" project admin will eventually come along and change app names regularly so as to attract crunchers and make a mockery of the entire system. None of us want this.


Universe and CSG come to mind already

This is just a deliberate post to piss people off. Thats the only thing this is going to accomplish.

I agree. Let's keep things as they are, including all historical anomalies. No more mergers needed, really.


I don't agree. It should be hours per application, not hours per name change.


They were being sarcastic

You now have your wish, and have lost 4 application stars in the process. I also lost my 15th star but I will get it back in a few more months.

Conan

OTOH I now have a much quicker path to a Lime star. Swings and roundabouts I guess.

No answer from the project for more than a month? :-(

That's not unusual. If there's a response it's usually unannounced and things just happen. In this case I think it's safe to conclude that these projects aren't going to be merged else it would have already happened.

So the end of Bitcoin Utopia is finally here.

I don't see them coming back. It was fun while it lasted.

Goofy needs to fix the fundamental problems with that project 1st...

Thanks Sergey.
I suppose it's stupid to ask why monkeys isn't tagged NCI - and why WUProp doesn't register actual runtime as supplied by the operating system !
I've applied your fix and look forward to more realistic stats :)


The whole Monkeys thing is a mess. I have no idea why the previous hours are not added to the current versions. They're the same app, all that's changed is the project name. When CERN consolidated their apps, for the most part things were swapped here without too much trouble.

As for the NCI vs CPU debacle, this is a continuation of the problems Goofy was having on the previous server.

But after all this is BOINC and YMMV is the rule.

Monkeys v1 (NCI) - Generator/1 seed 699502 123
Monkeys v2 (NCI) - Seeker/1 seed 300000 0
Monkeys v3 (NCI) - Generator/Word seed 699552 108
Monkeys v4 (NCI) - Seeker/Word seed 300000 0

The four original GoofyxGrid@Home apps should be renamed. This is what happened to all the CERN apps when they were moved.

It appears that reCAPTCHA is faulty and so I can't create an account. It seems that Climate@Home 2 is a whole new project after Climate@Home. But is being recorded here as the old project.

Conan


I was able to create an account from BM but yeah, you're right the new tasks are being credited to the old project. I'm 200 hours short of a red so I'm not completely upset :)

Tried for years, no one seems to know it..


If Bok don't know it, it cannot be known

I've added a link from the user page - http://stats6.free-dc.org/user/wup/84

Apps which you do not have hours for.

this will now link to a better formatted page http://stats6.free-dc.org/newapps/84/100



Outstanding!!

Any chance of an option for last 7 or last 28 days?

Thanks to Bok's awesome new feature, I've found an anomaly

From the Active Projects page:
cgminer (Campaign #5) (for 1+TH/s ASICs) 171

From my activity:
Bitcoin Utopia (Campaign #5) (for 1+TH/s ASICs) 342.92 7.42

These must be the same app.

Sweet!!

I've been trying to do this in Google sheets and I end up doing too much manual jiggery-pokery to manage it.

On mine, it says I have 0 hours for BU C#5 1TH/s but I have 335. I guess Henri made a subtle change to the name. I should run a task and find out...

Thanks!!!

Now that the ATLAS move to LHC has been announced, I'm wondering how this consolidation will affect us here.

ATLAS has 2 apps: ATLAS Simulation / ATLAS Simulation Running on Multiple Core
LHC has one app: ATLAS Simulation

However the LHC app is a multicore configurable app

See the problem?

The new Denis app is not receiving hours:

DENIS@home - DENIS Project that replicate the calculus made in Literature and fill the Markers Database


I've had hours logged, so works for me.
DENIS@Home DENIS Project that replicate the calculus made in Literature and fill the Markers Database 41.77 41.77

The application gene@home PC-IM from project TN-Grid Platform is active


These WU's all fail with zero seconds runtime.
Probably built wrong.

So far these have been Linux only tasks, and presently there is no work (presumably because they all failed).

Working now

The application La Red de Atrapa Sismos Continuo from project La Red de Atrapa Sismos Continuo is active
The application La Red de Atrapa Sismos from project La Red Atrapa Sismos is active


The websites have disappeared so both these projects are dead

climateprediction.net

Weather At Home 2 (wah2) (region independent) (app name wah2_ri)

Statistics shows as Weather At Home 2 (wah2)
two different (but very similar) application - a single line in the statistics



I have three of the old tasks just sat there as they do. They are some months old.

I downloaded 5 more today and I noticed that all 8 tasks are now labelled as region independent.
