my last WU failure

11/12/2008 6:23:45 PM|Cosmology@Home|Temporarily failed download of params_110108_110431_0.ini: http error

so yes, this is a week old, but as I see in this thread, it is not always consistant.

Was a problem with the logrotate daemon again; just fixed it.

Setting credit at 140 for now, we\'ll see how that works out.



Same issue here. I have one of the aborted WU\'s on my PC and I can\'t get rid of it OR get new work.

Now, to those that are CRYBABIES about the credit granted here vs any other project. GET A LIFE. Each project can grant credit based on what they think is fair, NOT based on what other projects think is fair. Credits are NOT an easy number to judge based on the mix of CPU\'s, OS\'s, Platforms, and many other variables in the individual project. If all you want are credits then find the project that gives you the most bang for the buck and stay there. And shut up on the forums of projects that you don\'t like the compensation. In the begining this was about SCIENCE, and in the end it is still about SCIENCE. Credits are just a game, nothing more.

ADMINS, I hope that you work out your server and WU issues so that we can get on with the SCIENCE!

Peace!

Fixed.

I was waiting for all of the other WUs to finish so I could implement some changes to the validator and WU template.


and again... we\'ve run dry...

I guess it was me fetching the last wus this morning.... it said 31 wus left and i fetched them all... :-)



Sysfried, isn\'t that being a bit greedy! getting one or two at a time should be sufficient for any user unles you have a slow internett connection (dialup).



Greedy? Hmm... I guess not. I had a host which was not crunching at all and that host fetched the maximum of wus it could get (50 would be the limit)... while there were only 31 left... it fetched them within 5 min time... 2 units at a time..

Is it my fault?

should I disconnect my hosts now, so others have more work left?

When there\'s work, I\'ll allow my hosts to get it. I have machines running linux, windows32 and windows64.... Intel and AMD cpus... what more could a alpha project want than a big variety of hardware and software?

btw, I had connection problems all weekend long, so I couldn\'t crunch a bit during the weekend (well, my hosts had some SIMAP wus, so I didn\'t really run dry)... but I\'m sure there was work during the weekend which was left for other people to crunch.

Besides, if I remember correctly, Scott is creating wus that don\'t yet really have a result. He\'s generating work to see if work and how work is done. In my opinion, it\'s ok that this project doesn\'t always have work available.

And I agree with the opinion that this is a really cool project...

best wishes

Sysfried



Such a can of WORMS I opened. 8-(
I realize that Sysfried and many other have contributed greatly to the progess of this project. I have done nothing but crunch when WU\'s were available. I was just comenting on the fact that when there are a sparse number of WU\'s available, that having a large queue set does not help in the diversity of Hardware and Software testing that takes place. I meant no disrespect to any person that is participating in this or any project. If you look me up you will see that I crunch for as many projects as I can, Alpha, Beta and production.

Cosmology is in BETA, and I hope will soon be in production to produce useful data for the science that I am interested in. Credits be damed!

I welcome any forum or personal communication that comes.

To the survival of planet earth !
