Congratulations Conan, well done.

As if by magic:

    'The application Neutron Star and Black Hole formation from project Universe@Home is active'


Ding, my three hundred and eighty second app over 100h appears,

    382 Universe@Home Neutron Star and Black Hole formation 100.08 26.98



Only got 26.98h in the last 24 so the new app's hours have been backdated for >24h, probably a few days at least.

Got the impression Apps that have been run before will be automatically detected by WUProp, and appear again, but some new apps need to be added manually. Suspect the WUProp app still detects most new project apps but the web site needs to have some or all added manually before they appear.

Reached my first purple app with 100Kh for WCG's OET:

    World Community Grid - Outsmart Ebola Together - 100,062.42

13th star upgraded to Ruby:

...
-->
...

11 apps from an upgrade to Blue, 7 apps from an Emerald, 11 from a Gold and 7 off another Silver; but that update would need new apps...

Reached 10years for WCG's OET app (there). Will try to take the app to 100,000h here before moving on.

Well done.

19th star should appear on the next server update:

...
-->
...

A few Android apps helped me get there.

11 apps from an upgrade to Blue, 8 apps from an Emerald, 6 from a Ruby and 8 off another Silver...
Will likely start chasing the above upgrades when I've reached 10years for WCG's OET app before returning to try and take a few others to 10years.
According to announcements, WCG will launch a few new projects (apps) in the coming weeks/months. I'm sure I'll want to take them all past 5000h fairly sharpish.

We can't see your computers or tasks!

Some of my android tasks fail immediately, others run normally. There are two app versions. One works for me, the other does not.

Thanks.

I had intuitively been clicking Add Project directly from the main drop down menu!
From there no options were available to add projects manually and my BoincStats BAM! account no longer works for me; I cant reset it...

Eventually worked out that I need to select Projects from the drop down menu (not Add Project), click the three vertically aligned dots (vertical ellipses) at the top right of Boinc for Android.
From there we can add projects manually (add project by URL) - Looks like a design afterthought!

So if anyone else is stuck, don't click Add Project when you want to manually Add a Project on your Android device, click Projects & then the 3 dots [ â‹® ]

Added WUProp & Rosetta, so I should see a Rosetta for Android app turn up here...
Might eventually get a collatz app too...

Denis is restarting:

    "DENIS@Home: Re-starting the project!
    Dear all,

    Thank you very much everyone for your patient wait. I'm writting to you to give you good news. We sent an small block of tasks to check if all is working well this Friday. Little by little, we will send more task. It seems that everything is working well but we want to go slowly to ensure each step. We have still some things to improve but now we can say that we are back!



    Many thank you for your collaboration

    Jesus."



I've some of the following Beta tasks:

Beta version of the DENIS Myocyte software for validation

http://denis.usj.es/denisathome/server_status.php

The server here reported the app on 17th Mar 2018.

Thanks Conan.

14th star upgraded to Gold:

...
-->
...

Still 12 apps from a Blue, 12 apps from an Emerald, 13 from another star & a long way from anything else.

Should have two more WCG apps over 50,000h in a week or two.
Might start chasing a few more upgrades here when that's done or if I can work out how to add WUProp to my androids?

Well done Mumps - big milestone!


16th star upgraded to Silver:

...
-->
...

12 apps from a Blue, 12 apps from an Emerald, 4 from Gold, 13 from another star & a long way from anything else.
Over 4months since I last upgraded a star! Should get a gold soon but after that it could be many months before anything changes.
Haven't been chasing more apps/stars, just concentrating on WCG 5year milestones & app hours. Want to get a couple more over 50,000h...

Going by WUProp I've never had a Rosetta task either, and it looks like there is a ratio of 10:1 at present (mini:Rosetta).

The Rosetta tasks seem to take twice as long compared to the mini tasks (4h mini : 8h Rosetta),
http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/results/delai.py

However, targeting CPU run time [off, 1 to 24h] to @24h seems to make no difference in what task types I get!

And it needs gcc5.5

sudo apt-get install gcc-5 g++-5


Starting more than 1 task at a time gives an error. I'd suggest only running 1 task on 4 threads.


I'm able to run tasks on 30 threads and the WUProp app see this. Run times vary greatly:

4 Jan 2018 | 18:32:00 UTC 4 Jan 2018 | 18:48:32 UTC Completed and validated 874.60 14,368.39 109.39 Quantum Chemistry v3.14 (mt)

5 Jan 2018 | 4:33:41 UTC 5 Jan 2018 | 10:48:26 UTC Completed and validated 17,881.02 500,368.10 2,236.51 Quantum Chemistry v3.14 (mt)

GPUGRID started sending out tasks for Quantum Chemistry app. There is only one app version, for Linux 64 bit. Additionally there is some issue with sending tasks, some hosts do not get any. I tried on few my hosts and only ones with Nvidia card got some work from server.


All tasks error out atm.


GPUGrid only works on Nvidia cards, they tried it on AMD/ATI cards a while back but quit, they are working now on getting a cpu app working.


GPUGrid's Quantum Chemistry app is a multi-thread CPU app for Linux systems. It's been in development for a while. The latest app version (3.14) was released on 14th Dec 2017. I've quite a few hours for it:

    GPUGRID Quantum Chemistry 9,501.57



There are 48K tasks sitting waiting to be sent out & only 750 in progress:

    Quantum Chemistry 48,770 750

It was suggested some time ago that Inactive/Dead projects should be highlighted (red) under the Project column. It follows that any apps from that project should automatically be marked as inactive (red).

You can't server abort/purge a task on a computer that's off.

Maybe newer WU's are ignored by the server when they are too old?

The application Sierpinski Problem ESP/PSP/SoB (Sieve) from project PrimeGrid is active


Is what?

Don't see this listed at PG as an app, or a choice under options (though their app names don't match their executable names).

...up to 530h, without Total credit (Computing and credit) going up.

PS. The server status page has been like that for ages.
