Nice find. I did notice I was showing a 20th star when only 399 apps were showing above 100 here. From Free-DC I have 161 hours for QCN Sensor. This makes me think the hours are being used for stars just not showing.

I have successfully processed 3_Gaia task over the last several days but no hours are showing at WUProp. I think a new app version was published after all the failed 3_Gaia tasks, so maybe WUProp is not detecting it correctly.

Looks like it showed in the New Applications thread two weeks ago http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/forum_thread.php?id=351&postid=7009#7009

I am not getting any credit reported for my recent hours on this app either.

PPS-DIV and other LLR projects are now showing in my account again and it looks like some back hours also posted.

There's a new list in the stats:

Hosts running nci apps w/o sensor

Both machines I run with QCN sensors are listed there.
Can someone explain??

Do you mean the new link on the Your Account page?

One of my two hosts running QCN with sensor is listed. I wonder if his detection does not see the older JoyWarrior sensor. The one not listed has a newer NAVI.

Earned by 13th star.
Next goal is my first star to Lime.

Thanks for the advice. I just ran into this problem for a second time on one of my hosts and had to find the real cause this time. Just as you said a left over vm file was the cause.
8) Message boards : Number crunching : More Stars ??? (Message 1605)

No-one is going to get 260 apps for a long time. There's barely even 150 non-alpha apps that you can reliably get to 100 hours, let alone several thousand. I wouldn't mind the fifth star being somewhere around 150 (if it wasn't for the badge removal issue I mentioned earlier), but I feel like the best way to accommodate for the increase in apps is to just add more stars when there's actually enough apps to get them. Having badges that are literally impossible to achieve is a bad idea.


Be careful about statements like this, zombie67 already has 160+ apps at bronze level or better. And while I don't have the hours on many of the apps for badge level, I am at 155 apps with hours. I will not guess on how soon someone will have 260+ apps at 100 hours but I don't think it will be a "long time".

The users are asking for a solution that scales to higher levels of hours and to higher counts of apps. The circled stars seems to answer the higher levels of hours. It may have already been mentioned but why not just give people a second, third, etc. badge as the app count increases. Then we don't have to worry about a cap on number of apps the badge system can handle.

So for example zombie67 would have two badges . Note one star in the first badge would be replaced by . Based on his description of hours STE\/E would have very similar badges.


But really what we need is an indication of the Admin's plans to wrap this discussion up.

I like the idea of both as well. I might eventually reach 5+ stars as I run lots of projects but also would have the chance to increase at least one star past sapphire working on my favorite projects.

Could you render one of the new 9 star badges with a mix of old and new stars so we can see how the background circles look in the badge.

As for size it looks like the new 9 star badge would take about as much space as the gpugrid badges.

Congratulations. Nice to spread those cycles around.

12) Message boards : Number crunching : Pending Hr's (Message 1049)
Posted 13 Mar 2013 by Profile Jeff17
I have noticed that the Pending hours seem to vanish fairly soon after the wuprop task reports from a computer that has completed and reported it's task but the Running time hours can take a while to increment. This means for a time it would look like hours had vanished.

I have not paid close enough attention to the actual hours to know if my totals are correctly increasing by the vanished pendings but they are increasing at reasonable rates based on what I am running.

5 stars max (20 apps per star)? Can that be re-thought maybe? Way more apps than 100. I am already working on my 7th star....


Sorry you are going to have to give back all the work you have done on the 6th and 7th stars since you haven't earned your 5th yet. :-)

Seriously congratulations that is diversified work. I have not been pushing things too much, but do have one host attached to most active projects with about half the subprojects selected, and am just at 89 different apps.

Thanks, new build is working for me as well. Just returned first completed WU.

I have the same problem. It looks like the new app requires a newer version of GLIBC than RedHat Linux provides.

I released a new version which corrects the problem

Sorry for the inconvenience


Thanks for the quick fix. Seems to be working correctly on my computers. :-)

I have seen the same problem. I did notice it is only affecting my Windows hosts; XP 32bit, Vista 32bit and Vista 64bit. My Mac and Liunx hosts seem fine, but they are running version 2.32 still.

For now I have aborted my Windows WUs and set to NNT.
