STEVE: That camb_boinc2docker_boinc_app file (http://beta.cosmologyathome.org/download/2b0/camb_boinc2docker_boinc_app) is and should have been present for at least the last four hours. But I do still see your client giving errors downloading it. Can you try a project reset? Maybe a remove / add too? Other clients have been able to complete the exact same workunit after your client gave a download error on them, so my guess is the workunits / files are fine on the server


I haven't been able to get the camb_boinc2docker_boinc_app to run for more than 10 min's before suspending & starting another task on the Win 8 Laptop. I did get it to run on another PC though that has Win 7 Pro installed ...

Question, are the camb_legacy wu's I'm getting multi task too ??? they only run 1 at a time ???

I've updated the project several times now ... The deleted Wu's were actually download error's, I've returned no successful Wu's yet as they all hang/suspend themselves after 10 Min's ...

Credit has always been acceptable to generous here at Cosmo in spite of what some people believe. Participants and their hosts are \"leaving\" because they (like me) think the project is out of control and mired with problems that cause \"no work sent\" and \"there was work but for other platforms\" messages. Some are content to let their BOINC message logs fill up with these messages but I choose to suspend until the problems are fixed. Anyone seen OhioMike lately, a long time contributor now aloof?


I agree with that pretty much, I do feel the Credit has been cut to far though & needs a little adjustment upwards of around 20% - 25% ... Although it was nice the Credit had to be adjusted downward here at Cosmo to satisfy the Cross Parity people. It\'s being done at other Projects too so people may as well get used to it because it is what it is as the saying goes ... :)

I think OhioMike just got feed up with the Project and moved on as many people have. His Account Data Page shows a little activity at Einstein but other than that he\'s dormant @ the BOINC Projects. He could be running some of the DC Projects instead though ... :)

Your @ the Cosmology Project, that should explain it all really ... ;)

Actually it probably has something to do with this Post made by the Project on the 9\'th of Aug ...

August 9, 2008 Old WUs cancalled and feeder code modified
Workunits created over two weeks ago have been piling up, so we\'ve made a small change to the feeder code and cancelled the offending WUs.


Your Wu\'s got Canceled because they were Offending the Project if I read that Post right ... LOL

We are also looking for a new person to continue the web development and screen saver graphics, since our very talented graphics designer (an Illinois alumnus) left to work in Hollywood (it was only a question of time...)


Hehe! Lets hope people like black and white movies ;) Comments about the \'new\' website have been well made in another thread.

Al.


LOL ... Being a older Participant I can\'t use the New Web Site & rely on the older one exclusively, why, well to be perfectly blunt & believe it or not it actually hurts my eyes to look at it.

That plus the fact to me it\'s got to be one of the ugliest Web Site Designs on the Internet, it\'s way to gloomy, dark, & foreboding looking for something trying to attract a lot of mostly cheerful if treated right people to run their Project ... :)

Posted 10 Aug 2008 by STE\/E
well the work started flowing again but looking at the wu\'s sent I see that almost all already have reported results that the server says it does not need. Also when I detached the server does not report this in my account page it still thinks I have tasks . I really have no idea what is going on. So all I can do is come back at a later date.

Good luck see you all around the bend


See ya APoch, Rumour has it 2018 might be a good year to try again ... hahahaha ... j/k ... come back when you get ready to. Personally I set all my Box\'s to NNW some time ago, I don\'t want them to set idle and this Project just wasn\'t supplying them with work or credit for the ones I did do so I went were I can get both.

I\'ll run the Project again myself but not until things get back to normal and who knows when that will be, for now it doesn\'t look good so I\'ll stay at NNW for the immediate future ... Cheers

. Just so you can sleep Poorboy I have turned that client off for the moment so I will not be waisting server time and electricity.


I already knew that because my Lights got a little brighter when you did ... :)

Your right in that it is your business and prerogative what Project you run, but the continual if you don\'t want poor little ole me & my lonely out of work computer Drama Queen Act really doesn\'t go over well after awhile so I\'d cut that out of your repertory for now since nobody at the project is probably paying much attention anyway.

ill trying to get some work for this machine. It has been idle for almost 12 hours, if it is not needed here I wish some one would say so.


Since you seem to have a Money Tree out back by letting your Box sit Idle for 12 hours rather than Attach to another project that actually might send you some work could you cut some off that Tree and send it to me ... ???

You know (I\'m sure you do) that there are probably close to 70+ other Projects that will send work to you if you Attach to some of them rather than waste Electricity waiting for work from this really smooth running Project.

Oh, I know what it is, your just so Dedicated to this Project that you can\'t bear the thought of wasting some of your precious CPU Cycles on another Project ... LOL ... I haven\'t seen a Project started yet that deserved that kind of Dedication, especially one that has turned it\'s back on it\'s Participants like this one has ... :)

Sooooooo what Ben\'s basically saying is that if you didn\'t or don\'t get Credit for a Wu then don\'t expect any either, because Scott has Adjusted the Credits to where they are Fair now ... ???

Cosmology has been paying all of us too much for a long time, so to overcome the potential problems with new applications that didn\'t give out any credit. In the end it equals each other out.

It\'s nothing to worry about, their just the 1.2-2.4% of the total active user base that Brian said were Credit Chasers, we\'re, eerrrrrr, they are insignificant really and have no impact at all on a Projects Production since their less than 3% of the Total Users ... :)

I ran some of the SETI Wu\'s with 3 different Optimized Applications that you can get right on the Message Boards in both a Linux & Windows OS Environment & there was very little difference in the amount of credit I received. It was always in the 80-85 Credits Per Hour - Per Core Range. So even if they cut their Credits by 15% that would only be a 12-13 point Credit reduction for me which would still leave me with 72-73 Credits Per Hour - Per Core.

The New & much longer Wu\'s here with the CAMB Turned back on were taking me 4-5 Hours to do which equals about 14-18 Credits Per Hour - Per Core with the new & improved 70 Credits Per Wu Allowance & thats actually being a little bit generous with the figures by rounding them off to the highest number.

So if we increase those Slightly Generous 14-18 Credits Per Hour - Per Core Figures by 25% I would now get 18-23 Credits Per Hour - Per Core & thats once again being Generous with the figures by going to the next highest number.

Soooooooo I see absolutely nothing there Credit Wise that would entice any Credit Chasers as you call them back to the Project that left it because of the Severe Credit Reduction.

As far as I can see Scott not only shot himself in the foot with the recent Credit Reduction but he blew his whole dang foot off by the Severity of it. But of course Scott in trying to sell his new bitter tasting Snake Oil Credits to the Participants called it a Credit Increase back on the 22\'nd of July, 2008.

The new CAMB is now up and work generation has commenced; in addition, credit for the new WUs has been increased, since lensing is now re-enabled.


But as I\'ve always professed while running the BOINC Projects it\'s each Projects Dev\'s Project & they can do as they wish with them when it comes to Credits Granted just as their my Computers & I can do anything I wish with them when it comes to the Credits their getting & there should never be any hard feelings between the two of them ... ;)

If their desire was to vastly reduce the number of work units crunched, and reduce the number of crunchers, they have had an amazing success. And in such a short period of time too! This will help enable them to keep there server running for many years without having to up grade. I wish them the best of luck attracting and maintaining crunchers in the future.


They can probably sell what Server Equipment they have now & get cheaper Server Hardware, that way they would have some spare change laying around for Coffee & Doughnuts in the Server Room ... LOL

Posted 2 Aug 2008 by STE\/E
So after a week of failed downloads for version 2.14, I was startled this morning when I saw CAMB 2.15 being downloaded by a Linux x86 machine. Since the home page claims that Linux app problems have been \"fixed\" but gives no details, I had hope. It downloaded successfully.

But, when it started to run it failed in 1 second with \"received signal 11\" which is a segmentation fault or memory reference error. Normally this is a sign of application coding errors such as missing address references or uninitialized pointers. So much for testing, eh?


Not to worry, by CAMB 9.99 it coulda, woulda, shoulda, be or been fixed ... ;) ... I\'m surprised anybody even wants any Wu\'s from this Project anymore, I had to tip the Barrel over to even find it on the Stats Sites anymore ... :)

Thanks ironcold, but I don\'t know what my needs are as you post here > Set BOINC_HOME, BOINC_BIN and RUN_AS to your needs.

The whole Boinc Directory as far as I know is located in the /home/poorboy/BOINC Folder, I\'m unaware of any files being located in any other Folders ... !!!

If I do a file search for boinc everything that comes up points to the /home/poorboy/BOINC Folder.
