I'm very happy to have C@H participate in the Formula BOINC sprint, however, I do wish the organizers would have contacted me earlier, then we could have built a much bigger work pool in preparation (by the time I saw this post yesterday it was too late). We could have also communicated better to the sprinters the ongoing issues with the camb_legacy app, and pointed everyone to be running only camb_boinc2docker.

To clarify / confirm what has been said, camb_boinc2docker validation is running completely smoothly. Work generation is also running at normal pace, but demand is very high so it is likely slow for clients to grab workunits. camb_legacy validation on the other hand is currently broken and has been for several weeks. For those participating in the sprint, its unlikely I can fix it in time for the Sunday deadline, unfortunately.


I think we all Wish this.
Thanks for looking into this.
I will Drop this Project until the Formula BOINC Sprint is over mostly because I do not care to have my computers running 24 Hours a Day for 3 Days with no work.
(Not due to the Project but due to the Sprint and lack of Formula BOINC lack of support to Projects and to Members)

Yeah cause F1 runs on equal ground when every car ends up a lap down except for the top 3 teams. And when the leader can lose 160HP and still no one can pass him.

If projects don't want to participate they can ask to not be included. FB is NOT NEW. It's been running for over a decade.


Maybe but how can a Project be excluded if they are never asked in the First Place?
Also by "equal ground" being they all get 100 Gallons of Full not some getting 100 Gallons and some only 50 Gallons of Full.

But then the Top Team is also the blame IMO http://www.cosmologyathome.org/top_teams.php to bring down Formula Boinc and the Sprints.

Formula BOINC Sprint is the Blame and all the members that download all the tasks to Bunker them and keeping others from getting any tasks at all.
Bunkering is killing Formula BOINC Sprint and keeping unreal but then that is what Formula BOINC seems to want.
I think it is time to dump Formula BOINC Sprints if they cannot be run on equal ground for all as they do in the Real Formula Races.
At lest Formula Races has management to keep it running well unlike Formula BOINC with no management and no communications to members or the Admin or Management of any BOINC Project website.

Any news or update about Cosmology Badges?

Unfortunately nothing. I've lost touch with Mark so I don't know that that will progress. Certainly if there are any graphic designers here that want to help design some, please get in contact!


For me this is a little sad as that is now my number one reason to pick and run BOINC Projects.
