Looks like VDVN got a little update. Most of the pages are working, I also could attach and got work. Huge progress! :-)

Edit:
Server status page still looks like a mess, and the short tasks can't get uploaded... :-\

... and it appears to be broken again >
Can't attach computer(s) most likely because the main database is off-line or missing; forums borked, etc.
Will have to try again later today or whenever the project is fully operational to attach to project.

I see the 123numbers /VDW Numbers website has been restored but there's still a few problems with it:
1) NO HTTPS
2) CAN'T LOGIN
3) LOTS OF 404 ERRORS WHEN CLICK LINKS - INCLUDING LOGIN.

The VDW Numbers web site and forum were working about 1 hour after the automated post indicating there was work, but could not get any of my PC's to attach or post to forums.

Since that time its obvious someone has messed around with large portions of the web site's html code and broke it. All we can do is wait for the projects admin to realize it's broke and fix it.

Now that SiDock has gone public with stats export ands new url, I see they RENAMED the project from "sidock" to "SiDock@home" within the last 24 to 36 hours.

Thus we have DUPE APPS from the new project server due to the project name being changed while it was live and exporting stats.

The apps are EXACTLY the same - example (hours from my Windows PC's):
sidock CurieMarieDock on BOINC 183.65 (Total Running time hours) / 104.30 (Last Day hours)
   --- and ---   
SiDock@home CurieMarieDock on BOINC (Total Running time hours) 48.57 / (Last Day hours) 48.57

Wonder if Sebastian will be able to eventually merge them together?

Got Monkeys to purp stars last winter. Haven't seen anything from them in many months. The dev was having health and financial issues. I hope he is well.


ME TOO!!!

I gave up on the "monkey project" back in early September and Willy @ BOINCSTATS has retired it from the active project list. Consider it Dead project, the website is been missing for a while.

Can't login or register for the Charity Engine WEB SITE despite the fact that I successfully signed up via the BOINC program and currently have work on my computers.

Keep getting the SAME ERROR MESSAGE when I click on "My Account" button in BOINC:
Sorry, (my email address) is not recognized as a user name or an e-mail address.

I have tried clearing the stored browser cookies and even the "forgot password" option with same error message.

Is there any other way to register or sign in to the web site so I can manage my computers / account?

Just realized I passed 1,000,000 cumulative hours within the last day!

My 13 stars are slowly changing colors


Getting a very small boost every day by using a limited/free virtual machine on Google Colabs.

Information on how to configure BOINC on a virtual Google Colabs session can be found over at the Prime Grid Forums: Google Colab and its free GPUs

Looks like the project finally started to count them in the last few minutes.
It now shows in my hours list.

Missing hours for app "Native Python v2.7 Application (Cross Platform) v1.14 (sse2NoXP)".

Ran and successfully completed 110 tasks on computers over the last aprox 12 hours and it's not showing up in my hours....

I see the automatic announcement from WuProp showing "The application ACT-R cognitive modeling environment using Clozure Common Lisp (Cross Platform) from project MindModeling is active" was automatically posted on 25 Apr 2020, 1:05:47 UTC.

Wondering if WuProp has misidentified what was running on someone's PC?

Good to hear that you have it working now!

Blurf,

Some of the older BOINC version won't attach to most of the projects any longer due to a built-in expired security certificate.

What version of BOINC are you using to attempt to connect?
Is this Win 10 PC a "Low powered" Intel chip?

I just saw Distributed Data and Media Processing project pop up in the new activity thread. Anyone know anything about it? I can't join as they have joining disabled.

I believe it is a CLOSED / PRIVATE project.

I have not been able to find any information about it anywhere and the web sites owner information is hidden by a privacy registration service. https://whois.domaintools.com/moisescardona.me

SETI WILL STOP SENDING TASKS ON 2020-03-31:
Message boards : News : SETI@home hibernation


Message 2035163 - Posted: 2 Mar 2020, 21:16:23 UTC

On March 31, the volunteer computing part of SETI@home will stop distributing work and will go into hibernation.

We're doing this for two reasons:

1) Scientifically, we're at the point of diminishing returns; basically, we've analyzed all the data we need for now.

2) It's a lot of work for us to manage the distributed processing of data. We need to focus on completing the back-end analysis of the results we already have, and writing this up in a scientific journal paper.

However, SETI@home is not disappearing. The web site and the message boards will continue to operate. We hope that other UC Berkeley astronomers will find uses for the huge computing capabilities of SETI@home for SETI or related areas like cosmology and pulsar research. If this happens, SETI@home will start distributing work again. We'll keep you posted about this.

If you're currently running SETI@home on your computer, we encourage you to attach to other BOINC-based projects as well. Or use Science United and sign up to do astronomy. You can stay attached to SETI@home, of course, but you won't get any jobs until we find new applications.

We're extremely grateful to all of our volunteers for supporting us in many ways during the past 20 years. Without you there would be no SETI@home. We're excited to finish up our original science project, and we look forward to what comes next.

Post a message on the BOINCStats/BAM! forums. Does not sound like a problem with this project but with BOINCStats/BAM!

150 users so far.
Lots of WU's available for download at the moment


I think more people would join and more users like myself would continue crunching for this project if the tasks were more reliable / stable, did not run for days on end without a definite end or not crash part way through.

Same here... No hours for the new PrimeGrid PPS-DIV app are showing up on my account here.
