Hello Cosmology@Homers,

As I have promised you recently, here is an update about this project: The Cosmology@Home Team has made a beta test version with an improved CAMB that we are currently testing(I am not personally involved in this process). If you would like to help with this process, please follow the instructions below.

* Download the BOINC client and start it up
* Add a new project with project URL "radish.deepspace.ucsb.edu/cosmologyathome"
* Create an account with your email / password
* Click on Advanced View
* Under the Activity menu click on Run Always
* Go to the tasks tab an ensure that you see several tasks and that they are running (may required clicking Update in the Project tab)
* Let at least one task finish all the way to 100%.

Please let us know of any issues that you may run into along the way, or just let us know that it has worked OK. You may use this thread for comments and feedback.

Thank you in advance!

Glad to help you out! Just signed up! Why did you create a separate website? Couldn't testing be done on Cosomology@home?

Hello Rapture,

Thank you very much for taking the time to sign up. This is a very good question. I will forward your question to the memebers of our team who are involved with this and let you know what they say.

Best wishes,

Hello Rapture,

Here is Professor's Wandelt's response:

"It updates the old code to be more accurate, incorporating a fully accurate model. It is not a new project, but it will require us to upgrade our server software in January.

No one should have to re-register."

Best wishes,

Faik

Hi,

I followed your instructions, however can't get any WUs to process.

2012-12-29 18:27:23 | TestCosmology@Home | Master file download succeeded
2012-12-29 18:27:28 | TestCosmology@Home | Sending scheduler request: Project initialization.
2012-12-29 18:27:28 | TestCosmology@Home | Requesting new tasks for CPU and NVIDIA
2012-12-29 18:27:29 | TestCosmology@Home | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
2012-12-29 18:27:29 | TestCosmology@Home | Server error: feeder not running

I guess that issue is server oriented (not client oriented) as most programs are in Disabled/Not Running status:

http://radish.deepspace.ucsb.edu/cosmologyathome/server_status.php

Client software: BOINC Manager 7.0.28 (x64)

Thanks in advance
