When I click on my stats/hours run for the different Projects here it shows I have 147 total Projects along with the different apps but when I look at the most recent list of people moving up I see people with anywhere from 574 Projects to 180 total Projects, is there a list somewhere showing every project and app with them? Or is it more of a search and find thing? In the past I've gone thru Free DC to go thru the top crunchers list to find new Projects but that seems labor intensive, especially since ALOT of them have closed down.


Projects come and go. The reason people have many more apps than you (or than I) is that they have many, many apps that are no longer exist.

We will never catch up to them. The best we can do is run what's available.

My final update for a while, because nothing else is anywhere close to being upgradable. Change a silver to a gold:

I *think* i may have got enough for a bronze star, but i may have failed.
Hard to tell until it is booked...


I ended up with 19 hours, so no star for me.

Even if I hadn't gone into "air conditioning lockdown", I still wouldn't have made it.

New app at Minecraft: Main menu panorama seed scanning


And, true to the title of this thread, this next post is about that app ending.

It ran for less than a day before they found the seed they were looking for, and that app is no more.

As luck would have it, two more upgrades should be coming in the next couple of days.

iThena is another NCI project. The top ranking teams are rather clearly running large numbers of virtual clients, numbers in the thousands.


Ithena is different, however, in that each of those instances will be doing useful work. There's a cost to running each instance, as they are doing substantial network traffic. If someone wants to run lots of instances, I don't see why anyone would care. It's the equivalent of running lots of CPU cores for CPU intensive apos.

It did, indeed, show up as a new app.

Is this it ... Thank's

yup.

Still remains to be seen whether it gets a separate app here though.. I have a wupropr wu being turned in fairly soon.


I'm pretty sure it will -- but it hasn't shown up yet.

Another Einstein GPU task run during the same WUProp task DID show up where it was supposed to, but this new app didn't appear at all. That's what you expect from a new app.

Reading the Einstein boards - I'm now thinking they hadn't sent out any wu's for the new app (O2MDF) at the time I got wu's and mine were the GPU app for the O2MD1 hence why they merged here.

Will see if I can get some of the new ones..


I haven't been able to figure out which box to check there to get the new app. The most obvious choice is the last one ("Gravitational Wave search O2 Multi-Directional"), but I don't get any tasks when I select that. I only have GPU tasks selected.


I've got the same settings and I'm not getting anything either even though the server status page shows tasks available for O2MDF.

EDIT - I've asked the question over on the Einstein boards


I *did* get the new task when I turned on the "allow other tasks if none are available" box.

Perhaps they are at a new url, as they seem to have changed to http://qcntw.earth.sinica.edu.tw/


Digging around on that website, I found their "BOINC Installation" instructions.

The URL listed in their instructions is http://qcn.twgrid.org/continual/.

That site does not respond.

Things not working ? like what ? (examples)


I can't react to https://signature.statseb.fr/forum/ , being stopped by the Pun stop bots question 'How many letters are in the latin alphabet'? which won't accept any answer in any languge or digit.

Our badges for Atlas@Home are still showing for LHC@Home -years out-of-date.

Seb does not react to PM's either.


I think I had to Google than one. It's 23.

My Atlas badges finally showed up there. :)

New PrimeGrid app. It is also MT, like all of their other LLR apps now.

"Fermat Divisor Search PPS-DIV (LLR) -- "llrDIV""


PPS LLR (PPS, PPSE, MEGA, DIV) Looks like it will be included in with the rest of the PPS LLR App's so no new badge for the App ...


Right: no new badge, but it will be a new WUProp app. Assuming, of course, WUProp starts recording PrimeGrid LLR hours again. It hasn't been recording any LLR hours on any app since we switched to the (mt) plan class.

This seems to be affecting many people at PrimeGrid, based upon our forums, Discord server, and private communications.

PG changed their LLR app names from version 8.03 to 8.04 (mt) and the hours are not appearing here. This isn't a "major change" and shouldn't cause the creation of a new app as far as WuProp is concerned, the hours should still go to the same places. I'm sure the (mt) is confusing whatever automation ignores version numbers.


Plan class != app name.

The app names didn't change, but I think you're right about the hours not registering.

Posted 18 Aug 2019 by Profile Michael Goetz
This project still showed up yesterday.

Went to hunt for the URL to connect and luckily found this thread.


The block on "CompositeGrid" appears to have been lost during recovery from the recent database problem here.

I suspect the block will be reinstated at some point, at which point all the CompositeGrid WUProp hours will vanish again. This is out of my control.

I don't recommend running CompositeGrid, unless you are actually doing PrimeGrid testing. (There is currently no testing right now.)
