LODA had an announcement that they have suspended operations and are evaluating how and where their next development effort will be. No indication if BOINC would be involved.

Cosmology@home has been unattended for awhile and the former Admin "pokes" it every once in awhile. There were a couple of postings of third hand news but basically no direct news. I reached out to the primary researcher about 18 months ago and got a polite response but nothing changed. IMHO not worth wasting electricity on.

I don't have any knowledge on Wanless

Gaaaaaaaaaah ... I have less than 500 hours to get to 100k on the Universe BHspin v2 Appm with my 2 Androids, I still have Wu's running on both of them, will have to see if I get any new ones ...



Steve they have been a solid project for many years I suspect that they will be back just the way they promised in their posting. A little while bank I rolled past my 50,000 hour and changed a star color and they have a nice Badge for 5+ million credits. you will get your 100K

https://boinc.termit.me/adsl/ has tasks for windows and linux
it appears to have changed its name from "adsl" to "ADSL@HOME"
so "Symmetric Prime Tuples" app needs adding somehow
i had a few hours under the old project name, but new ones aren't showing up yet

[EDIT - IT HAS SHOWN UP NOW]


And now the Project has done a name change to SPT@home. All the users and Apps moved across automatically without detaching and reattaching.

14) Message boards : Number crunching : Negative Run Time Hours (Message 9937)
Posted 27 Apr 2023 by Profile Bill F
Over the past 2 to 3 weeks there have been several days when multiple projects on my account have had negative hours posted for daily hours. In comparing notes with other WuProp volunteers this problem appears to be more than a one off event or a single user issue.

Could the News area be updated with the cause of this if it is known.

Thanks

new app at Rosetta@home - "Rosetta Beta" - as usual you can't select the apps you want there - no work showing as available, but i did manage to pick up a solitary resend


Looks like they did at pretty good block of Beta tasks. About 2854 still in progress.

I can relate ... So yes my A/C electric bill is higher than most... "You adjust your PC's to run less during the "heat of the day" (2pm - 4pm) ??

At least with SETI gone I don't have to put up with searching for little green men jokes anymore.

https://parlea.ru/boinctest has a new app "Cycle Search" with multiple Android varieties

Hours are not showing up yet....
I have completed one task ~1.5 HRS on Android and have 2 more currently in progress.


For Android I have one completed in Completed, waiting for validation status and more tasks in "in Progress status.

My old Windows 10 box with a GTX 1060 6gb managed to be in the right time slot when it needed work and snagged 32 Get Decic Fields (nVidia)tasks. All ran successfully and were granted 300 credits each. WUProp shows 8.6 hours.
